Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Happy The second one I bought in less than two years.the wireless sending unit stopped working and they don’t offer just that part. You have to purchase the complete kit again, so I have a sensor for sale if anyone is looking for one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, just not at the distance as advertised The gate opening system works well for our purposes. It is used 2-15 times per day, so I will probably add another solar panel to charge more fully on days of heavy use. Ours DOES NOT reach even close to 100' using the wireless driveway opener. We talked to support several times and had a new transmitter sent and installed, moved the antenna as far from anything as possible and made sure there was a clear line of sight to the antenna. At 100' it never worked. At 60' it worked most of the time. At 30' it works all the time. We also have issues with our openers. None of them (5 total) will open the gate more than 30-40 feet away from the control box. I was told that if I could see it, they should open. Nope. Even at 100', they don't work on our gate. Other than the issue of the proximity of the transmitters, the gate has been a great safety measure. With the restrictions in the distance that the transmitters work, I would recommend the wired automatic opener over the wireless (unless you have solid rock like we do), and expect that the two or three button transmitters may not work as advertised. We like our gate and it was the best option, just wish we could actually open it the way that we thought we would be able to. I have tried to add photos, but it tells me there was an error and to try again. Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installs easily - This makes the 2nd Mighty Mule Wireless Sensor I have purchased. The first one lasted for about 10 years - cannot complain. The second sensor was installed about 3 weeks ago and it has worked flawlessly. These sensors can be temperamental at times, but I have always been about to troubleshoot the problem without tech support. I would recommend. The convenience outweighs any problems I had with the old sensor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gate opening sensor Once you get it set up, it works great. You have to have the gate remote in order to program this sensor to the gate opener.

Will this product open for a horse or a dog? Or just vehicles? We don't want our livestock being able to activate the sensor.

Asked by: Bob from Lake Helen
min12512, Thank you for taking the time to post your question. The Mighty Mule Wireless Gate Opening Sensor is only activated by mass metals in motion. Livestock should not activate the sensor. Thank you,

Our house has metal siding and roof. Will the receiver work in the house?

Asked by: LSGJ
LSGJ, Thank you for posting your question! As long as your home is not within 25 feet of the installed Mighty Mule Gate Opening sensor, the metal roof should not cause any interference with the sensor. Thank you!

Can one be installed on each side of the gate so the gate will automatically open both entering and exiting? Will the hand held openers and key pad still work with the sensors?

Asked by: Walt Ord
Hi Walt, yes you can install two vehicle sensors. One in the entrance & one in the exit area of your gate and this will automatically open your gate when a vehicle enters or exits.

Will this pick up my son on his four wheeler?

Asked by: Whit1213
Whit1213, Thank you for posting your question. That depends on the size and speed in which your sons four wheeler is moving. If it is a large four wheeler, the wireless gate opening sensor will detect the mass metal in motion and open the gate. Thank you,
