Every property owner should be invested in the security systems of their entryway, especially when using an automatic gate opener with their system. With Ghost Controls® products and accessories, keeping your gate secure, while never having to worry about reliability, is what you can count on. Our ZombieLock® technology is easily installed, simple to use, and makes protecting your entryway worry-free.

One of the most appealing qualities of the ZombieLock® that our customers value is how easy it is to install and use on a typical gate. All Ghost Controls® products and accessories are designed to integrate seamlessly with each other, and the ZombieLock® is no different. Additionally, mounting this device on your gate is easy and using it every time you close your gate will feel unnoticeable, but safe.

ZombieLock® is compatible with all Ghost Controls® single and dual gate opener systems, and can even be used on separate-party products with limited functionality. When connected to a 12V AC or DC power source, the patented design works in tandem with your gate to make sure that the latch is released automatically when the electric driveway gate is opened. This hands-free automation is perfect for every situation and seamlessly integrates the lock with the larger gate operating system.

Our customers who experience natural disasters, specifically those who are living in tornado or hurricane-prone areas, need the assurance that their gate systems will still provide their property safety and privacy even in the most dire situations. Utilizing Ghost Code® technology, your ZombieLock® will stay locked on its own, even if the power goes out. Even if your lock loses function, a keyed cylinder is integrated into the lock’s frame so that manual override is simple. For more information on our patented Ghost Code® technology, click here.

There are a number of convenient ways to mount your ZombieLock® for operation. On a standard single gate, the receiver needs to be bolted into the post to the opposite end of the driveway single swing gate operating system. Next, refer to the instruction manual to mount the lock at a level height to the receiver.

Dual gate installation requires the receiver and lock to be on separate gate leaves, but is essentially no different in its simplicity. For tube gates, your ZombieLock® will easily attach using our standard Ghost Controls® tube gate brackets.

After installing a ZombieLock® with your system, you can have the peace of mind that your system will automatically lock itself. You won't need to go through the trouble of manually locking your gate entrance again, and even if the power goes out on your property, it is no problem for the ZombieLock®.

Adding a Ghost Controls® ZombieLock® to your remote gate opener system is hassle-free and ensures that your property’s entrance is protected from threats to your privacy or livestock. At Ghost Controls®, we provide the only type of lock that integrates flawlessly with our system and offers industry-leading security features.
