Remote control of driveway gate

First of all, I hope it’s not a problem to write in English. I can understand German, but I can’t express myself in writing to well.

I’m currently doing research for a home automation project of a holiday cottage. The property has a nice driveway with a gate, and ideally we’d be able to open/close the gate via IP-symcon. Can anyone give me some advice about which hardware to use (the equipment to open the gate electrically is in place), and how to control this from IPS?

Thanks in advance.

Two questions :slight_smile:
Do you have access with cable or do you want to control it wireless?
How far is it to the gate from your house?

And: Does the gate’s opener have one/two potential free inputs for opening/closing the gate?
