    Hello.

    Anyone here who got a link to where I can buy the following components for OpenGarage:

    D2 – 3v3 Zener SMD diode?
    OPENER – 2 pole screw terminal somehow?
    RELAY: Some spesifics on which relay is used? (default state e.t.c.?)

    The zener diode is actually not necessary — the only diode you need is the one for the relay, which serves as a flywheel diode.

    Any 5mm/5.08mm terminal block would fit (or you don’t really need a terminal block, you can just solder two wires onto the terminal block pins).

    Relay: the one we use is HK23F-5V. Pretty much any relay would work fine — garage door systems actually use fairly low voltage (often 12VDC) while typical relays are rated for at least 110V, so the requirement on the relay is very low.
