About Ghost Controls®

Improving Lifestyles Through Innovation®

GHOST CONTROLS® is a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative solutions for the North American gate automation market. Millions of gates are sold annually, only to be manually opened or closed with cumbersome locks and chains. Our gate openers and accessories are low voltage (DC) and solar optimized for environments without access to AC power and require minimum maintenance and installation expertise for the do-it–yourself installer. Our management team has over 70 years of experience in the industry and a thorough knowledge of current offerings in the market. GHOST CONTROLS® has launched new patent pending customized solutions for the residential and agricultural gate markets that clearly reflect our desire to create a new generation of automatic gate opener systems and our passion for leading-edge technology, providing safety, security, convenience and peace of mind to families.

GHOST CONTROLS® products are designed and manufactured with pride, delivering the highest quality product and customer support in the industry. To ensure we deliver on our promise, we provide in-house and online support, and stand by our products with unprecedented limited lifetime warranties. Our corporate philosophy is; steadfast commitment to our customers, culture, products, and people.

Based on extensive research, customer feedback, and thousands of on-line reviews, our products offer a new generation of leading-edge technology designed to address customer identified deficiencies in existing retail products that still rely on technology designed over a decade ago.

The term “Ghost” in our name has positive connotations outlining our focus when designing our products. For years, customers have asked for an alternative for slow, unreliable, and noisy operators. The GHOST CONTROLS® team is proud to be that solution with our innovations in Noise Reduction, Speed, and Reliability.

Speed, and Reliability:

  • Quiet – motor noise is accurately correlated to quality in the mechanical and electronic design. That’s why GHOST CONTROLS® has a proprietary maintenance free gear box and motor designed for smooth, quiet operation regardless of age and high cycles.
  • Fast – Our mechanical design and new radio frequency offer superior range so there is a greater level of convenience for customers in a hurry.
  • Invincible (Limited Life-Time Warranty) – The motor is one of the most critical components to ensure reliability and longevity. We back our proprietary gear motors with a limited lifetime warranty. No other product in the market can make this claim.


GHOST CONTROLS®  did not stop at addressing and solving market concerns. We are pioneers in providing Safety, Security, Installation and New Convenience Features – GHOST CONTROLS® patent pending, “SafeForce® technology meets and exceeds new 2016 Underwriters Laboratory Standards without adding costly, maintenance intensive equipment and time to the installation. The GHOST CONTROLS® patented “ZombieLock® sends feedback or status to the electronics so that in the case of a malfunction the lock cannot damage the gate or hardware by attempting to open. There are many new proprietary features such as the patent pending radio activated “PartyMode® which provides the convenience of leaving the gate open for guests with your transmitter and just the touch of a finger.

Our products are also designed for customers that may want to install their gate opener with limited time and equipment. GHOST CONTROLS’® patent pending Audio and LED alerts provide customers with trouble free installation and intuitive diagnostics. Unlike other competitor products on the market today, our hardware is not limited, and we do not require installers to fabricate support brackets for tube gates.
