Mighty Mule Wireless Gate Opening Sensor, FM130 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Driveway sensor. Easy to use and easy setup. I enjoy just pulling up and the gate opens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for the most part Gate sometimes doesnt open when you drive up why the 4 stars. Could be a sensitivity thing or something. Pretty easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting - Dependable I have had my Mighty Mule for over 20 years and it still works fine. I had to replace the battery a couple of times. It snows here and the gate will push open 6" of snow with no problem. When I replaced the battery the first time, I noticed spiders inside. Before I sealed and closed the box I placed a Moth Ball inside to repell the spiders. They have all moved out. Their Technical Support is excelent and can trouble shoot anything over the phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work Conencted as described in manual, didn't work. Called tech support, had defective part. Wasted nearly 2 hours on another poor quality part from mighty mule. Avoid these products!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sensor I bought this sensor as a replacement for the Sensor FM130-SW that I have had for several years that I thought was going out. As it turned out it was only my battery. The old sensor which I have had for several years is still working fine.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up Works well and easy to install. Easier than having to bury a line from the gate opener

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont work I bought less than a month ago and had it installed it worked ok for a day and havent been able to get it to work since..have changed batteries several times still no luck..Guess i got a bad one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME MM Gate Opener!!! I really like not having to get out of the car to open the gate, especially in the rain!!! I also like that it is wireless and you don't have to use any wires, to hook this up and that up!!! I just push a button on my remote and the gate opens and push the button for it to close. I also like the extra item I purchased which was the gate lock, so the wind can't blow it open!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! My husband didn't seem to think we needed to spend the extra money for the Mighty Mule Wireless Vehicle Sensor, FM130-SW but I insisted! After my husband installed the sensor (which he said was super easy & didn't take very long at all) he is so glad we got it! We are very pleased with our purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate performance way overpriced Needed to replace a vehicle sensor on gate and had no choice but to buy this. Price is absurd compared to cost of opener itself
Date published: 2019-01-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME SENSOR Bought this a few weeks ago and finally installed the gate, mule gate opener and this gate sensor. It is wonderful to pull up to the gate to have it swing open so you can drive through and have it close automatically afterwards. Very easy to set this sensor up, wish the mule gate opener were that easy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy I bought this a month or so ago. It was easy to install and works great. Would have been five stars but there was a part missing in the box. I called mighty mule and they sent the part immediately with no problem. If you have an older gate opener you will need the little decoder to make everything work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well Owned this unit about 2 years. No problems except gofer damage which required a complete replacement of the underground sensor. I advise to completely enclose the sensor and all wire in PVC pipe, other wise this entire system is an excellent product.

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

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.
