DRIVEWAY OBSERVATION & SIGNAL plus GATE OPENER Answered
We have a hidden driveway into our rental property, blocked by a large electronic gate. Need something to detect a vehicle in the drive (either a motion sensor or a touchpad type thing?) that will make, for example, a doorbell ring in the house, and a viewing camera that can handle tropical rains, that will show up on something like a baby monitor inside the home.
The gate has two remotes, rather cumbersome and easily misplaced. We would prefer to keep these in the two vehicles and have a button or three in the house and garage, to enable us to activate the gate opening without having to go get the remote from the car.
I would like some ideas, plans etc as although I have some electronics knowledge I need someone who has perhaps already built something like this.
Any ideas, anyone?
