Thankyou very much once again for your always excellent customer and help desk service. I conquered the programming and the keypad is now installed and fully operational......Thankyou once again..regards Hannah.. This is what I was writing about yesterday. Service, service, service. I do my best to help people in every way.  I got a call from a gent in NSW yesterday, he has an automatic swimming pool cover and the controller has failed and the company is out of business.  No worries, I supplied him with a modified double motor system, solar powered, for less that $500.  Win, Win.. cheers...

Ha, Ha , yes it does happen. I have been told that clients come home and the gate is open or it opens and closes during the night for no reason..

First of all, most sliding gates have a infrared beam, or photo cell or beam to stop the gate working when there is a car in the gate way. Now there are two types of beam systems. One model has a transmitter on one side and a beam receiver on...
