1. An automatic smoke/carbon monoxide evacuation system for a garage equipped with a garage door and garage door opener with a motor, the system comprising:
a microprocessor;
a smoke/carbon monoxide sensor incorporated in a garage door reverse sensor of the garage door opener and coupled to the microprocessor, and configured to detect presence of smoke/carbon monoxide and send a trigger signal to the microprocessor in response to detecting smoke/carbon monoxide;
a power switch coupled to the motor and configured to automatically connect the motor to a power source in response to the trigger signal to automatically open the garage door to ventilate the detected smoke/carbon monoxide in response to the trigger signal;
an alarm device communicably coupled to the microprocessor and configured to issue an alarm in response to the trigger signal; and
a transceiver coupled to the microprocessor configured to automatically transmit a wireless notification message to a central monitor in response to the trigger signal.
