Gates on your property can be both functional and aesthetic, creating a beautiful barrier around your property. Opening them by hand can be a hassle, though, especially in bad weather. That is where automatic openers on your gates can come in handy, and the best on the market is Ghost Controls.
Ghost Control automatic gate openers are a great choice for any gate. The Open/Close Cycle is simple to use, yet still allows you to set the exact time and length of your gate opening. You can also receive notifications when your gate opens or closes, which is especially handy if you’re out of town, or just don’t want to worry about whether or not your pet got out! They’re easy to install and use, have a long battery life, and work with most gates. You can also control them from your smartphone with the Ghost app. Let’s go over some of the bright points of Ghost Controls!
The Open/Close Cycle
The open/close cycle is the time it takes for a gate to fully open or close, measured in seconds. This cycle can be adjusted by changing the motor speed and gear ratio on your automatic gate opener. The most common type of automatic gate opener uses a chain or belt drive system to power its opening mechanism, which means that it uses either a chain pulley or sprocket wheel connected to an electric motor’s shaft via an intermediate gearbox housing. This allows you to control how fast your gate opens or closes by adjusting things like motor speed.
Battery life depends on the size of your gate and the frequency of use. The larger your gate, the more power it will consume. If you have an automatic gate that opens 10 times per day, we recommend using a deep cycle marine battery or AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery to avoid overcharging and damage caused by repeated deep discharges.
Battery life can be extended by using a solar panel with your automatic gate opener system so that there is no need for frequent battery replacement or charging during winter months when little sunlight is available for charging purposes. This will help conserve our environment’s resources while saving money on electricity bills!
The Ghost Controls are available in a wide range of configurations for swing gates to meet your needs. You always get smooth and steady closure with no slamming, as well as a setting for parties that will let you leave the gate open for an extended amount of time! There’s also a VacationMode, which will keep everyone out regardless of transmitter access until you come home.
The Ghost Controls also come with a variety of additional options such as solar power capabilities, battery backup systems, keypads, and wireless transmitters that allow users to control their automatic gate opener from anywhere within 100 feet of its location.
Get automated with Ghost Multi Connect! The smartphone app is available for both iOS and Android. You’ll also need to install and configure the Ghost Gateway–the device that communicates with your gate opener.
Once you’ve installed the app and configured your gateway, you can use your phone to open and close your automatic gate from anywhere in the world. You can even configure multiple users who have access to this feature! If you’re worried about forgetting about an approaching delivery person or family member who needs entry into their carport, this will come in handy! The smartphone app also works with other devices by Ghost Technologies:
- Home Security System – Alerts when someone approaches or leaves home
- Garage Door Controller – Open/close garage door remotely
