My House is Very Far From the Driveway Gate -- Can I Open The Gate From The House?

There are a number of ways to avoid an accidental kidnapping charge and, instead, allow your guests to easily exit your gate when it's time to say "good night", even if the gate is at the end of a mile-long driveway.

  • If you have telephone service available at the gate, you can have a telephone entry installed on a dedicated line. You would then call the telephone entry and command it to open. (It's ok, it doesn't mind being bossed around. It lives to serve.)
  • If you have cell phone service available at the gate, you can have a GSM receiver installed at the gate. This allows you to call the cell phone number of the GSM receiver and command it to open the gate.
  • You could also have a push-button installed inside your property--the button would be connected to a device called a wireless repeater. When you push the button, a signal is sent to the gate operator telling it to open up. The range is purported to be up to 4 miles, line of sight.
  • There is also technology that allows you to control your gate with a smartphone.
