Best Garage door solution with v2

You can find new garage door openers with internet gateways for around $160 (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Chamberlain-Premium-MyQ-1-2-HP-Belt-Drive-Garage-Door-Opener-with-Gateway-HD520EVG/206179084 ) . The garage door opener is 20 years old, so I am not sure spending $85 on a remote opener is a good investment.

There is an RF Arduino solution, that may be cheaper, and could do more. Probably a little more technical, but nothing really to wire into the garage,

There is a downside with remote only, the remote does not know the state of the door (open/close) so you will also need a tilt or open/close sensor. With the internet gateway it knows if its open or closed.
