– The gate is not reacting, moving or making any sound
First you should check if the breaker and the switch are working properly. If you can open your gate motor box check if there are any lights on. If not you have a power problem. If there are lights on you might have a remote control problem the batteries could be flat or it could be broken.

– The gate doesn’t stop where it is supposed to or doesn’t stop at the end.
This is a common problem that is often related to the oil in the motor causing the sensor to not reflect where the indicator is. If this happens suddenly after your gate automation was working fine then you need to call a technician.

– Remote controller doesn’t work
If you have tried changing the battery and tested that the gate motor works with other remotes then you have an issue with your remote control. Give us a call and we can supply and program a new remote controller for you.

– The gate keeps making a beeping sound
A beeping sound is usually the cause of power outages and low batter warning. You might have broken power to your gate motor or your battery could be faulty. We carry new batteries so give us a call and we will test and if necessary replace your 12v battery with a new one.
