Nice and clean looking installation. How water-proof is that button?

The button (claims) to be marine-type waterproof. I added a thick o-ring on top and also on the bottom, under the lock nut.
I rode in the rain and also washed the bike since, and no issues yet - I think it is holding.

No not the first.
I have my opener wired into my bike.
It runs off 12v, yep small 12v battery in the opener. If yours is a smaller voltage battery it can as well, just need some additional pieces.
I soldered across the switch inside so it looks like its always pressed,
and then I use the high beams to make the opener function.
So as I pull around the corner, I hit the high beams and the door opens.

Very cool!
I kept the original button cell battery in mine, figures it is not worth the hassle to wire it differently.
