Drive now installed and all operational. 2 remote controllers and a third fixed in the house so we do not have to go outside to open the gate for visitors.
I decided against additional vehicle sensors, perhaps just something else that can go wrong. But can be fitted retrospectively if required later.
Have the GF checking now about any app so he gate can be operated by the phone.
I hope that you really do not mean that you have not installed the auto stop and reverse function that is triggered if there is something or someone in the way of the closing gate.

There was a case not long ago of a Japanese child killed by a powered gate that didn't have that safety function installed.

Mine is installed low enough that even a dog walking through while the gate is closing will reverse the motion.

Jerome, I may have mislead people with my comment. I was referring to additional line of site sensors that can be located before and after the gate which i did not take up as an option. If I feel the need later I can fit them. All normal safety sensors for the gate movement are in place. This includes the safety feature of not continuing the open close action if the gate comes into contact with people or a car.

Still sneaking up on completing small projects.
My GF went and chose some fence post lights from Boonthvorn shop and had them delivered and installed yesterday.
Wireless LED, Auto night switching, IP66, 2 day power pack.
Have procured only 4 at the main gate section to illuminte the area for security.

From this to this in a couple of days. Nice big excavator and 2 of the best looking tippers I've seen in Udon, ripped into the demolition of my old house. Just some clean up to go. 25,000 bht
Opens up a nice additional swathe of land to cultivate and more room for the dogs.

Hope they targeted the right one Barney! Just joking, but as I said earlier it looked a nice home - I understannd that it had a termite problem. The home that I have leased in downtown Udon Thani for the past 10 years is now beset with maintenance problems. It throws up a conundrum - our permanent home will soon be 25 kms outside of Udon, but our need to be central also demands a downtown abode. The huge place we have been renting just 1 km from Central Plaza at a very low rental (that is badly in need of repair), an apartment with hardly any any storage or parking for a little more, or just pay for a hotel room a few nights a week? Not the the right forum here, but your demolition sent the mind down that track. Regards, John

Yes John they smashed the correct dwelling, all cleared and cleaned up, now already being utilised to increase her herb, vege and fruit tree jungle. She has had the area watering system installed, including our old house tank placed and a good powerful 2nd hand Hitachi pump procured for 3000 bht, plus the sprinklers. This tank is fed from the grey water supply by a small submersible pump. Saving her a lot of time in hand watering. Had movable sprinklers installed on the rear lawn. Amazing how fast it all grows with a bit of watering. All smiles now with more time for her to go and shop. I recommended she now utilise that spare time to mowing.
I just need to find a way of measuring the liters per hour to set the timing right. Without shoving a measuring stick in the tank. I put the old electric level switch (in orange) back on the tank as a cut off switch so it won't pump the tank dry.
