Quickest? Easiest? Buy a motion sensor led ceiling light. Connect the two wires to a salvaged lamp cord. Plug into other half of duplex receptacle for closer. 

Or; you could have an Electrical Engineer trace the circuit on the board, jump power to the sensor to keep them always on, and wire them to a relay and timer to power the light without activating the closer motor. 

Of course then you might need a new remote!

I think I understand what you are trying to accomplish, but growing up in the 60’s, we flipped a switch when we wanted a light on......

Sorry I should have said Wifi.  I can turn the lights on from any place that has wifi as for the chamberlain door I believe it is the same although I have never used it, I get emails and alerts from Chamberlain from time to time about the features.
