Using your Ghost Controls® gate opener system while combining accessories is the best way to customize your experience. The most durable and portable option when operating your gate is our AXR1 Water-Resistant Remote Transmitter, which will allow you to open your gate's entrance remotely in any outdoor condition.

When paired with our AXP1 Premium Remote Transmitter, your driveway single swing gate will open in any type of weather, and can be opened in more fair conditions from a distance with even more operating options when needed.

The AXR1 Water Resistant Remote Transmitter is one of Ghost Controls' most durable accessories. With an IP54 rating for protection from the elements, you can always be sure that this remote won't fail you. The three-button remote has the standard functionality of our AXS1 remotes, but is perfect for mounting and using outdoors.

Your water resistant remote is best used when mounted to a gate post, on an uncovered vehicle such as an ATV, and even on the saddle of your horse. When you need it at night, your water resistant remote has glow-in-the-dark buttons; it can work in just about any situation.

For a quick way to operate your electric driveway gate, consider investing in our AXP1 Premium Remote Transmitters. Much like the AXR1, the AXP1 variant of our wireless remotes operate at an industry-leading range of up to 1,000 feet away from your gate’s control box, but come at a price point of only $4 more than our standard AXS1 3-Button Remote Transmitters, which are included with every tube-style installation kit.

Upgrading to premium remotes will give you access to the same Party Mode® button as our wireless keypads, with the added benefit of portability, meaning you will never need to walk to your gate for your gate to remain open. Party Mode® gives you the power to leave your entrance gate open for extended periods of time, perfect for any kind of get together or herding livestock out of your gate.

Both of these accessories provide you with unparalleled convenience and the technological edge that we guarantee with Ghost Controls®. However, when combining accessories, you can truly take your gate automation to the next level.

Open your gate remotely after a long day of outdoor work with your water resistant remote. If you need more options for how your gate opens and closes, but still want to operate from a distance, you can use your AXP1 remote. The possibilities are truly endless when combining these accessories!

If you choose to take advantage of the solar powered compatibility of our remote gate openers, it has never been easier to integrate clean energy from our AXDP and AX30 panels into your swing gate operator system. By converting to a solar gate opener, you will be able to operate off the grid on renewable energy, whether you have a dual gate opener or a single gate opener.

The AXDP solar operator is a 10 Watt panel, and can be paired with another to make a more powerful source. With the AX30 30 Watt panel, you can capture enough sunlight to produce electricity for a property that has frequent gate usage, or is located in more temperate Northern regions.
