Anyone hooked up a remote gate opener at 100yd range?


(Jim) #1

Our driveway is about 100yds long. I have power down there to run a gate opener, but no low power circuit beyond that for the gate function itself.

I’d like to be able to rig the gate opener with a local switch at the house (doorbell style) as well as open/closed detection.

Is there a thing or device that should have that sort of range to reflect the state of both a switch and a sensor? Maybe a zigbee or zwave range extender?

Note, I do have a power outlet at about 50yds on a post that I could plug a repeater into. Not sure if that would make it work at that range or not though.
