As someone who really loves how APIs make everything programmable, naturally I'm very interested in being able to program my garage door. I can imagine two levels--one that's just event notification, a webhook that calls out to a URL that I can configure, and two, the ability to query the door state and trigger open/close.
I realize that there is a lot to consider when opening up an API, but this also seems like it has potential to be a differentiating feature. It doesn't hurt that the DIY-inclined are often a pretty vocal bunch that can really help with word of mouth.
