HomeKit release with car garage door opener buttons

I thought of a new project. I wish I could trigger the HomeKit door lock using the garage door opener buttons built into my car. I’m familiar with popular automation to trigger a close-up scene. For security reasons, I would rather have buttons to control things. My thought process is that I will need a garage door opener (I don’t have an office garage), which I could program the car button to trigger and just use that to do an automation to unlock the door. set a certain scene. Do you know about a cheap / small dongle designed to extend on a garage door opener that would be compatible with HomeKit? I found this, but I’m not super confident in this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-HomeKit-Garage-Door-Opener-/233596112101?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l4275.c10
