(feedback request) Wifi garage door opener

Hey guys, I've been doing some reading on wifi adapters for the garage door openers and I was curious what you all used.

The need is to be able to open/close my garage via my Genie SilentMax 1000 remotely.

I've seen Bluetooth adapters for the phone which are cool but I want to control it while I am out of town.
Yes I am aware of the risk of hacking and that it will only work if wifi is available, currently my thermostat is wifi adapted.

Here is the link I've been reading so far, any input is appreciated.

it takes a little programming and you may or may not have to build a little web-server for it to connect too. If you google "adruino garage door opener" you can see what others have done with this logic board
