Estate Communication Package:

The Estate Communication Package is designed to provide the homeowner with real time communication at the gate. With the intercom/keypad at the gate, the visitors are allowed to gain access into the property when provided with the proper code, or they can initiate voice communication with the residence. Real time communication allows homeowners to filter and determine on spot who is entering the property and who is not. The entrance is secure and accessible for the indicated people. Exiting is also convenient. In combination to the intercom/keypad, you will get an exit sensor, providing an easy hands free exit from the property.

The intercom/keypad ties into your existing land line and calls all phones down stream from the junction box. In addition to this it also acts as a keypad, can call out to other numbers, can record what access codes were used, act as a party mode switch and more.

The exit wand gets buried in the ground next to the driveway, not under it, which is a huge convenience over standard exit loops found on commercial installations. With an exit wand, as moving metal passes by where the wand is buried, the wand is triggered and the gate opener is activated, making exiting for you and your guest truly hands-free. Nothing is visible from the surface so your property is still secure because those who don't know about your system won't know that the exit wand is there.

In every kit you will get:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener

  • One RE-1 Keypad/Intercom Combo

  • One GC 50' Exit Wand

5, 10, and 20 Watt Solar Packages:

The Solar Package is designed to charge your gate opener battery via solar panels and dismiss the necessity of running wires to bring electrical power to your gate. If the nearest power source is more than 1,000' away, or you'd just rather avoid running wires to your gate, you can still install a gate opener and charge it with solar power. An additional remote control is provided for your convenience, for a total of 2.

In every kit you will find:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener
  • One 5, 10, or 20 watt GC Solar Panel

The installation of the solar panels is as straight forward as plugging in the transformer into the electrical outlet. Just face the solar panel towards the South* and run the wires to the control board. The solar panel will trickle charge your battery, allowing you to achieve the desired cycles per day.

* Optimum orientation for solar panels: (your latitude x 0.9) + 29 degrees = # of degrees your panel should be angled towards true South from the horizontal position (laying flat pointing directly up).

Estate Package:

The Estate Package is one of our most popular gate opener system set-ups. For the residents, the package comes with two remotes, depending on your selection of opener. For guests, the package comes with a keypad for the outside of the property, keeping your entrance secure yet accessible to the right people; and an exit wand for the inside of the property, making easy exiting for everyone.

The keypad is wireless up to 200 feet. Wireless operation is popular because of the ease of installation, and now with 433 MHz it is extremely reliable.

The exit wand gets buried in the ground next to the driveway, not under it, which is a huge convenience over standard exit loops found on commercial installations. With an exit wand, as moving metal passes by where the wand is buried, the wand is triggered and the gate opener is activated, making exiting for you and your guest truly hands-free. Nothing is visible from the surface so your property is still secure because those who don't know about your system won't know that the exit wand is there.

In every kit you will get:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener
  • One Estate Swing wireless keypad
  • One GC 50' Exit Wand

Installation of these accessories is a breeze. The keypad is wireless. Wireless is the easiest - simply program the access code and sync it with the receiver. The exit wand is direct burial so no conduit is required and it comes with 50' of wire pre-attached to run back to the gate opener.

Security Package:

The Security Package is designed to make your property off limits to anyone you do not wish to enter. By setting up a keypad on the inside and outside, you keep your gate system convenient to those who do not have remotes while at the same time making both opening devices code secured. In other scenarios, such as having a push button or an exit wand on the inside, a trespasser could jump the fence and trigger the gate to open. But with two keypads, no code means that you are locked out.

Both the keypads are used wirelessly which also adds another level of security. With wired keypads, if the trespasser jumps the right wires the gate can be activated, but when the keypads are wireless they are essentially code-protected remotes.

The package also provides a 7 lb. steel automatic gate lock (only for swing gates). This lock latches and unlatches automatically with the operation of the gate opener. Gate openers themselves are not devices of security, but devices of convenience, and are not built to resist up to 1600 lbs of force on the gate. That is where the gate lock comes in; let the trespasser exert force on the gate lock, your gate is not going to budge and your equipment will stay functional and unharmed.

In every kit you will get:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener
  • Two Estate Swing wireless keypads
  • One GC LOCK

Installation of these accessories is a breeze. The keypads are wireless. Wireless is the easiest - simply program the access code and sync it with the receiver. The gate lock is bolt on so it can be accommodated to any gate. It also comes with wire pre-attached to the back to run back to your gate opener control box.

Safety Package:

The Safety Package is designed to make your gate opener system as safe as possible to both people and vehicles. By setting up two photo eyes, one right past where the gates close and one right past where the gates open, a safety zone is created. Most cars are of great enough length to always break one of the two beams while in reach of the swing of the gate, whether coming or going. Most of the gate openers come with obstruction sensors built into the boards where the operators will reverse upon contact but it is always best not to make contact at all. An additional hard remote control is provided for your convenience. And because of the Homelink ® compatibility w/ all GateCrafters.com packages, you will be able to program the opening code into the desired vehicles, having virtually unlimited remotes in addition to the hard-remotes provided in the package.

In every kit you will get:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener
  • Two Safety Egg Photo Eyes

The Safety Egg Photoeye's egg-shape deflects snow and rain from the sensor. Having a wired sensor is more reliable and you don't need to worry about changing batteries. The GateCrafters Infrared sensor can be powered with 12/24 DC or AC voltage which can be conveniently powered off any GateCrafters low voltage automatic gate opener. With over a 30-foot range, this sensor can be used on virtually any residential or commercial driveway.

Cell Phone Access Package:

The Cell Phone Access Package is designed to provide the homeowner with unlimited range, wireless access to the gate. With the Estate Swing Cell Phone Access Receiver at the gate, visitors and homeowners can gain access into the property and exit it through the convenience of their cell phones. The entrance is secure and accessible for the individuals that have their cell phone numbers programmed into the receiver to recognize by caller id.

The Estate Swing Cell Phone Access Receiver is the ultimate in versatility and convenience for remote opening of any gate opener. This receiver totally eliminates the necessity of purchasing or carrying extra remotes because it provides access to the gate opener through an item most people already carry - a cell phone. Operating on a SIM card (purchased separately from AT&T or T-Mobile) and activated by the programmed numbers, the receiver will activate and open the gate. This is more secure than traditional remotes because the number has to be programmed into the receiver to operate it, so there is less of a chance that unauthorized persons will be able to operate the gate.

It's convenient for small apartment complex managers and their residents (up to 64 cell or land line numbers), since the residents' numbers can be programmed into the receiver so the manager doesn't need to purchase and hand out extra remotes. Similarly, because so many numbers can be programmed into the receiver, each member of the family, plus friends, extended family, and others, can operate the receiver easily and conveniently. The range is truly unlimited, so long as there is a cell tower available to receive and transmit the call. This is particularly beneficial in areas that have a great deal of interference for traditional radio transmitters and receivers, or for users who wish to open the gate from extended distances (such as from a home, garage, or lengthy driveway). The Estate Swing Cell Phone Access Receiver allows the user to avoid all that while providing a simple, secure, and convenient means of operating the gate opener.

In every kit you will get:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener
  • One EST-64 Cell Phone Access Receiver

Installation of this receiver is a breeze. The included instructions will clearly indicate the connections to be made and our knowledgeable tech support is ready to help you out if necessary.

GSM Wireless Intercom Package:

The GSM Wireless Intercom Package is designed to provide the homeowner with unlimited range, wireless access and real time communication to the gate. With the Estate Swing GSM Wireless Intercom at the gate, visitors and homeowners can gain access into the property and exit it, when provided with the proper code, through the convenience of their cell phones; or they can initiate voice communication with the residence. The entrance is secure and accessible for the indicated people. Real time communication allows homeowners to filter and determine on spot who is entering the property and who is not.

The Estate Swing GSM Wireless Intercom is the ultimate in versatility and convenience for remote opening of any gate opener. This GSM Wireless Intercom totally eliminates the necessity of purchasing or carrying extra remotes because it provides access to the gate opener through an item most people already carry - a cell phone. Operating on a SIM card and activated by the programmed numbers, the receiver will activate and open the gate. This is more secure than traditional remotes because the number has to be programmed into the receiver to operate it, so there is less of a chance that unauthorized persons will be able to operate the gate. At the press of a button guests can call your house or cell phone and you can open your gate from anywhere. Similarly, the intercom function permits homeowners to allow entry for personnel requiring access to the property, even when the homeowner is not home. When the intercom button is pressed, the intercom dials one of three programmed administrator numbers; if the first attempt is unsuccessful, it will try each of the other administrator numbers. When the call is received, the administrator can talk to the person at the gate and press a few keys to allow entry to the property. This is an excellent feature for deliveries since the homeowner can allow entry even when s/he is not home.

It's convenient for small apartment complex managers and their residents (up to 1000 cell or land line numbers), since the residents' numbers can be programmed into the receiver so the manager doesn't need to purchase and hand out extra remotes. Similarly, because so many numbers can be programmed into the receiver, each member of the family, plus friends, extended family, and others, can operate the receiver easily and conveniently. The range is truly unlimited, for both the voice communication and the gate activation, so long as there is a cell tower available to receive and transmit the call. This is particularly beneficial in areas that have a great deal of interference for traditional radio transmitters and receivers, or for users who wish to open the gate from extended distances (such as from a home, garage, or lengthy driveway). The Estate Swing GSM Wireless Intercom allows the user to avoid all that while providing a simple, secure, and convenient means of operating the gate opener. Other convenient functions, such as administrator texting, extended delay opening/closing, party mode, and phone/text message programming, are available.

In every kit you will get:

  • One Apollo 1550 Gate Opener
  • One (1) Estate Swing GSM Wireless Intercom

Installation of this Intercom is a breeze. The included instructions will clearly indicate the connections to be made and our knowledgeable tech support is ready to help you out if necessary.
