I just lost two remote controls for my garage door. It’s super boring. They’re too small and it took me a long time to find them. So, I’m looking for a way to replace this shit. I’m thinking about ordering my garage in any situation. And a mobile application is a good idea. Why not on my smartphone? I use it everywhere and I wear it all the time. So I did some research, how to replace the remote control with a mobile phone, how to use a mobile phone to control the remote control, how to use a mobile application to replace the remote control, etc.. But that’s not exactly what i’m looking for! I don’t want to buy a new wireless control system. It’s really expensive. I’m looking for a way to convert my phone signal to the radio signal. So, what I need maybe is a converter from WiFi signal to radio signal. And this time, I did find what I want. Here are my search results:

Maybe someone has bought a device like these and share me something if possible?

Thank you very much

Here is another one that looks simpler and you can use it without going through your home WiFi network.
