So apparently I’m too lazy to push the button on the remote!.
We have two separate electronic gates and a garage, all controlled by a remote control with 4 buttons.
My idea is to have an Arduino which will close the circuits on these buttons in response to various events, eg Car approaching gate or Car approaching garage.
I’m unsure what I can use to identify vehicle. Maybe I don’t know how I should do it yet either. Perhaps an arduino with a GPS module could signal to open the gate when the car is approaching the zone that the gates are in, and close it when the car is leaving the zone. The Open/Close on a single button poses the problem that it might get out of sync.
I’d be interested to hear ideas - I will do some more thinking and come back to this thread later in the weekend.
