Don’t worry, I doubt your automatic gate opening is going to set off a bomb anytime soon. However, under FCC Part 15, automatic gate openers are considered unlicensed devices which are used at the owner’s risk. Honestly, there is a laundry list of things that can interfere with your automatic gate. Even Christmas lights and cheap clock radios can open your automatic gate out of the blue. This can also cause your automatic gate opener remote to not work at all. Appliances should always be kept at least 15 feet away from your automatic gate opener and its receiver. If you live close to an airport, there isn’t much you can do. Well……
Upgrading Your Automatic Gate Opener Can Help A LOTThis may seem costly, but chances are that you will have to do it eventually, anyways. If you have a automatic gate opener manufactured before 1993 it is actually required by law that you replace it for safety reasons. All in all, this is by far your best options. A automatic gate opener that does not use radio signals to open is your best bet. This will cost a little more but you will be able to open your automatic gate with your android or Iphone. That alone should make it worth it.
How in the world does this happen, though? It really isn’t complicated. Older automatic gate openers rely on radio signals to operate. Many different pieces of common technology use these same signals. Literally everything from military and police radios to your car radio and appliances. God forbid you should live next to a radio station. If you don’t live near any of that, then you have to remove every electronic one by one until you isolate the source of the problem. If all else fails, your automatic gate opener just isn’t working properly anymore.
