Keep the sliding gate safety sensors in good condition
You should clean them regularly. Brush off the dust using a soft lint-free cloth. If there is more stubborn dirt, you may make the cloth just slightly damp and rub a bit more vigorously. Once you are done with the cleaning, align the sensors properly to ensure that they aim at each other. If you notice any damage to the devices, you should get them fixed or replaced timely.
Consider a solar gate opener if the nearest power source is over 200 feet away
In this situation, using a solar panel and a battery may be the more reliable and more cost-efficient option compared to delivering mains power at such a great distance. Before making a choice, you should figure out the wattage of the solar panel required to power the opener and check how much it will cost you.
