Raspberry Pi garage door opener: Part 4

I ordered brackets of my design from Front Panel Express to mount the rotary encoders.

I ordered Lovejoy couplings and fasteners from McMaster-Carr to connect the rotary encoders to the garage door shafts.

I ordered a Netgear ProSAFE JGS516PE 16-Port Gigabit Rackmount PoE switch with 8 PoE ports (85w total). I’ve been needing a PoE switch for a while, since I want to install a couple of PoE IP cameras. I also ordered 1000′ of yellow Cat5e cable to use for PoE applications. This will make it easy to identify ethernet cables that have PoE in my home, since my others are blue, grey or white. Finally, I ordered a PoE splitter with 5V microUSB output to power the Raspberry Pi.
