In this project I utilize the power of Arduino to create a circuit to power a Sliding Gate. The main aim of this project is to utilize a dead Sliding gate with a functioning AC motor and automate the system using an Arduino, couple of relays, a 433MHz reciever, a 433Mhz transmitter and some crafty electrical skills. The system creates a method of powering the gate’s motor when required and to decide whether to open or close the gate. The Arduino constantly listens to a set response from the transmitter, in this case it is the remote used to open or close the gate. The transmitter operates on two channels, where each channel has its on unique ID. Once this ID is recieved by the 433MHz reciever, it sends a signal to the Arduino which controls the Relays to power the motor. “
