there is one you can wire into your headlight. You go high / low and door goes open.

Yes, Flash-2-Pass will do the job, however, it's not perfect and they try to hook you to using their openers, which are not cheap. On the XC/Vision bikes, I would just modify a current (preferably a broken) remote for your garage door. Give it power so it doesn't use the battery anymore, and add an accessory button on your dash.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Range could be better, but my opener is in the back of the garage, FWIW. Not sure what CR is talking about but have priced openers and they are very competitive. I also put one on both cars, so it made the price even better. Jump the control box for the house into the existing one, or just replace it. The instructions are in the box and there are a few U-Tube type video's out as well.
I mounted mine under the fairing and wired it to the brights, grounded to an existing ground point. Did it all through the headlight opening so no need to remove the entire fairing unless you have some other projects going on under there.

Flash 2 pass here too, very easy and other than my system not powering the included opener it was a 20 min job on my XCT. The next time I have a battery go out in another opener and I'm doing the same on my wife's car. No work on my end, just 2 connections and done.

I just purchased a 2013 XCT in December and had been riding a Yamaha RSV for several years. I put in a mo-door opener and loved it. Easy to use, easy to install, never had any issues with it. I took it out of my RSV and planning on putting in the front right storage area on my XCT.

The apps I'm seeing so far are bluetooth- and seems they require additional hardware, a bluetooth receiver, etc. In fact- in many cases- the app itself is not mandatory for it to work.

The question I have is how is the opener pairing is affected/ limited by other active BT connections like Phone-Sena. Phones typically do not have multipoint BT, so this makes me wonder if terminating that Phone-Sena pairing is required prior to using the opener app. If yes- (which strikes me as likely) you then have to use the phone menus to pair the opener? Now-- if the app automatically and quickly switched the pairing over for you- I guess that solves all that. Now you just have to have fingerless or smartphone compatible gloves to use it..

Anyone using this type of setup confirm? If I'm anywhere close to right-That Mo door rig looks pretty enticing to me.

I've got the flash2pass on both of my bikes and they work great. The trick is to mount the transmitter where there is not a lot of Metal between it and the receiver unit in your garage.
On the Victory it is mounted in the top half of the headlight bucket. On my other bike it is under the headlight and just above the bottom of the triple tree of the fork. Flash high Beams twice and door works every time.
