Can you open a gate without a remote?
You can open gates with keys, remotes and gate operator wireless keypads. Our USAutomatic wireless keypads are weatherproof, tamper-resistant keypads that can be installed on the outside of your gate. With a keypad, you won't need a remote to control open/close gate operator functions.
How long does a gate motor battery last?
Gate motor battery lifetimes vary. A 12-volt battery that remains fully charged when not in use can last up to six years. USAutomatic Patriot and USAutomatic Ranger gate operators require the use of a 12-volt maintenance-free battery with a 30 amp-hour minimum. Smaller amp-hour batteries can damage the gate operator's charging system.
Batteries on solar-friendly USAutomatic gate operators can be charged using a 120-volt AC-powered transformer or a Patriot Solar Panel Kit.
