Trying to move hot air out and cooler morning air in. I then close them and turn off the fans.

I consistently maintain about 10 degrees cooler in the garage then before doing any of these add on's. I have a large 3 car garage that is over 1000 square feet. My total cost to do these changes was under $800. Fans were used so mostly for the insulation. But it has helped considerably to maintain a lower inside temperature.
If this approach is for you it's about 70.00 to add a wink hub and an switch or outlet. You could just automate it to come on in the morning. 60 bucks to automate the garage door.
