Garage Door Opener

So I am sure lots of people try to keep their bike in the garage if they can. I have been looking online for ways to get this done and found a few options.

Does anyone have a good way or option for garage remotes on their bike?

I have a spare remote that I carry with me when I'm riding. It's usually in a jacket pocket and I can push the outside of my jacket to open the garage.

Yeah that is what I have been doing also... just keeping the remote in my pants pocket so I can hit the button on my leg. Just sometimes I hit the button in the house without realizing it and the garage opens. Hence the reason for trying to find something I can attach to the bike.

That's why I don't wear my motorcycle jackets in the house

Cars have built in garage door remotes seems like they could put them on bikes without adding much weight

I have an app on my phone (which is mounted to the bike) that acts as the opener remote.

I was actually thinking about doing something like that... I have double sided 3m tape. I have a friend that ordered the mo-door so going to see how well that works.
