Nothing about a garage door opener should need a firmware update…

I have known a few garage door openers in my day, and /all/ had remote 
operation. At least in the sense of being in ones car and having the 
ability to open and close the door.

Want more "remote" in the sense of "Anyone on the internet can operate 
the door providing they…are authorized, and stuff like that."…oh, that 
opens up /many/ cans of worms.

Cans that might be wisely kept sealed shut.  Except for the "push within 
the entire IT industry to, make everything "Web-centric".
