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 driveway single swing 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 AXWV Wireless Vehicle Sensor, your gate will open in any type of weather from a distance, and can let any vehicle out of the entrance just by approaching.

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.

When it comes to accessing your gate from your vehicle, there's no better option than the AXWV Wireless Vehicle Sensor. Setting up your wireless vehicle sensor by burying it and syncing the wand with your control box will allow you to automatically open your gate by driving your vehicle up to the entrance. The AXWV will sense any large metallic object and send a signal directly to your gate opener for peak convenience and ease of entry or exit.

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 electric driveway 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 to exit through your gate, you can simply drive up to it without the need for a remote using your wireless vehicle sensor. The possibilities are truly endless!

When you invest in the Ghost Controls® family of swing gate openers and accessories, you are ensuring that you'll never have to sacrifice security and reliability for comfort. Our line of interconnected accessories and highly capable gate openers will give you the dependability you need and the convenience you deserve, all at highly competitive price points. 

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.
