Finished an MVP of my garage-opener-thingamajig!

Basically I decided I wanted to control my garage from my app. Retail solutions are expensive af. As a dev, the choice was easy!

HC-SR04 sensor
DHT temperature sensor
5v Relay
Nativescript + Angular

Result: i can open my garage anywhere, safely (sorta?) via firebase, and get push notifs when it gets opened (from hcsr04), which triggers the pi camera, while also getting live temp feeds (this one is kinda for the giggles and utterly pointless but NUMBERZ!)

Anyway - fun side project! First version of my app looks like this. Its very rough, and I have a couple more details I wanna display, but for a first time app I'm happy!
