We are looking to control a driveway gate from ST, with a twist. Here is our setup:
-House is approximately 1000’ from road, with tons of trees between. We have installed a mighty mule gate opener at the road. Obviously, the built in remote does not work
-We have a barn approximately 500’ from the house (half way to the road). We’ve trenched ethernet to this building and have expanded our wifi and hardwired LAN here. It’s working very well. We are preparing to trench power, ethernet, and a control wire for the mighty mule gate from the barn to the road, with the goal to be able to control the gate from ST and have an ethernet camera at the gate. Wifi is not an option for any of this due to the density of the woods, terrain of the land, and distances involved.
The ST hub is in the house, so we only have wifi in the barn (no zigbee or zwave), which is where the control cable (just planning on using #16 landscaping wire to run for the gate) will originate. While researching this forum and others, I came across Sonoff switches which appear to have SmartThings support. I am wondering if anyone has experience with this switch:
My goal would be to join it to ST over wifi in the barn, then plug the control cable for the Mighty Mule gate opener into it. This would then allow us to control the gate via ST. Thanks!
