Barn door opener V2.0

Another project with a lazy background. Every time I have to put the cars or my bike inside our barn, it highly annoys me I have to get out of the car, walk to the door, find out it is locked (50/50 chance), get back to the car, turn it off to get the keys, open the door, start the car and then drive it inside. Also the doors are very heavy, and require a lot of force to open. Now it opens and closes with the push of a button.

The first version only unlocked the door, but you still had to go to the door to open it. This version opens the door with an electric motor, which can be remote activated up to 50 meter. The door can also be opened with a switch from the inside.

All inventions are born from laziness, and all inventors are incurable lazy!
