Controlling your automatic gate opener is as easy as the push of a button when using Ghost Controls®’ wireless remote transmitters alongside our reliable gate operating systems. Remote transmitters give property owners the ability to use their remote gate opener by carrying a portable unit mounted inside their vehicle or on their person.

Every product in the Ghost Controls® line of remotes gives these added benefits, all while functioning within an industry leading range of 1,000 feet from your gate. Here are the remote options we offer for purchase and a comparison of how each one operates:

The AXS1 Wireless 3-Button Remote Transmitter is the standard option for remotely controlling your gate. The functions include opening and closing up to two different gates at the same time, and each unit’s “Learn” button is capable of pairing the remote to a different previously established swing gate operator system.

The AXS1 is included with each gate opening kit offered by Ghost Controls® with dual gate opener kits including two remotes. If you feel that you only need the basic functionality of an AXS1, you will still be able to use your gate control reliably without the worry of having to walk to your system to operate it.

Looking for a remote that will give you full control of all of your electric driveway gate’s functions? Consider our line of AXP1 Premium Remotes, which include two extra buttons on every remote that take the convenience of wireless operation to the next level. For an added price of only $4.00 per remote, you can receive access to the Party Mode® and Test options.

  • Party Mode® is the perfect option for property owners who are expecting many guests to be entering through their gate. By pressing the “Party” button on your AXP1 remote, your gate will hold open, disabling the auto-close feature and saving you the trouble of using your gate opener every few minutes, also saving your system’s battery with less frequent uses.
  • The “Test” button lets you test your system’s battery status so that you always know how many cycles you can use your gate with before the system needs to be recharged. The Test button prevents you from needing to access your gate opener’s control box to check the battery status.

If you’re looking for a way to operate your driveway single swing gate in any outdoor condition, look no further than Ghost Controls®’ AXR1 Water-Resistant Remote. With IP54 rated protection, you can be sure that the elements will have no effect on the functionality of this remote.

Many AXR1 owners use their remotes in a variety of different circumstances outdoors. AXR1’s are commonly mounted inside uncovered vehicles such as ATVs, on the user’s belt, or even on saddles. Glow in the dark buttons enable reliable night usage to add to the experience of a remote that will never fail you through any condition.

Why To Consider Ghost Controls® Remote Options

When faced with these three options, you should keep in mind the number of users who will need remote control of your gate, the outdoor conditions you commonly face while working your gate, and whether added functionality is necessary for you. Each remote transmitter type comes at a similar price point, with the AXR1 being available for just $39.97.

Whatever your situation is, wireless remotes are a useful addition to any gate opening system, and with Ghost Controls®, you will find dependability and cutting edge innovation.

All Ghost Controls® wireless accessories are secured using our patented Ghost Code® technology. For more information on Ghost Code®, click here.
