Control your garage door from your Android watch

The need (or want I should say):

I want to simplify getting into my garage when returning home on my motorcycle. It’s not fun to have to search around the garage door clicker or get off the bike and go enter the code….so why not make it so I can use my voice to open it from my Android wear watch.

What I have:

Watch: Nixon Mission (http://www.nixon.com/us/en/mens-model-mission) – I’ve used the Moto 360 as well, any Android Wear device should work
Android Phone: Samsung S7 Edge (any ANdroid phone should work)
Android Software: Tasker (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.taskerm&hl=en) & Wear Tasker (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cuberob.weartasker&hl=en)
Garage Controller: Zenotech beagle done cape (http://zenotec.net/)
Command Center: Home Assistant (https://home-assistant.io/)

How it comes together:

The intention of this post is not to hold ones hand through the process step-by-step, but to share the framework used to make it work. If someone does have questions on any specifics, please post them in the comments and I’ll share more specifics in that area.
