My initial reaction was "absolutely not". The lighting circuit will only have a maximum feed capacity of 3 to 5 amps. For a garage opener this will be more than that. If you did manage to convert it, then you would almost certainly blow the circuit breaker and at the worst you may cause the wiring to set on fire due to overload. Basically, it's all about the maximum current that the opener draws when operating. I'm sure that it would exceed the capacity of the circuit. Additional question...I saw something at Home Depot that screws into a light socket and provides an electrical outlet. Would this work? I did a little research and found garage door openers ranging from 1.6 to 6 amps. Seems a little tight, but could it work?
I am not sure what brand your garage door opener is, but perhaps you should check with the company that made your particular garage door opener to make sure to get one that will work. If that is not an option for you, I did find that Walmart offers a universal garage door opener remote.
