Automatic gate

15 years ago

Because we're in a remote location, I'm considering a security gate. We have a transformer at the home site which is 500 feet off the road and we'll need some form of power back at the road... 500 feet from the transformer. We have underground power.

Is solar power an option? But I also want a pair of 40 watt lights, one for each brick piller that will frame the gate. Is solar still an option?

If I get a swing style gate, how often will it strike exiting guests' cars unfamiliar with it's operation?

Any general ideas or suggestions on automatic gates will be appreciated.
