Installing the Best Off Grid Solar Powered Automatic Gate Opener from Ghost Controls

Installing the Best Off Grid Solar Powered Automatic Gate Opener from Ghost Controls

If you’re looking for a high quality automatic gate opener for your homestead then check out this system from Ghost Controls. This system meets all of our needs since we are off grid and there is no power to the gate. We installed their solar panel and dual battery box along with the Zombie Lock, keypad and electro-magnetic exit sensor. Works great!

Building An Off Grid ICF Mountain Home

——————————————————————————–

In 2015, following a series of events that included job loss and a 7.8 earthquake that shook us out of our complacency, we decided to get out of the rat race and live a more grounded lifestyle. For the first two years we taught ourselves skills such as canning, preserving, raising livestock, and off-grid cooking while living in the comfort of our suburban home. Then in 2017, we sold everything and moved off-grid into a 600 square foot trailer from the 1960’s in the most rural part of Appalachia we could find. Follow us as we build a home in one of the last remaining wild places in North Carolina.

    Can you disable the beeping control board? Or at least muzzle it somewhat.

  2. Green Ghost on December 18, 2021 at 11:16 am

    O that’s great,thank you for your quick reply

  3. JAZ Farm on December 18, 2021 at 11:18 am

    FYI. I have just received the order for mine. It is for 2 14 foot gates. Looking forward to getting it installed.

  4. Sean's DIY & Reviews on December 18, 2021 at 11:19 am

    I got a grease gun (same you use for your car) and grease the bolt hinges. Makes it last and take less of a beating. Nice work all around!

  5. Southern King on December 18, 2021 at 11:19 am

    What size post you’re using

  6. Triple L Rustic Designs on December 18, 2021 at 11:19 am

    Terrific video! Thank you!!

  7. Twisted Timber Woodworking on December 18, 2021 at 11:20 am

    How has your gate opener still performing? Was getting ready to try to install a gated entrance

  8. Wilhelm's bane on December 18, 2021 at 11:23 am

    I may have missed it but how wide is the gate ?

  9. Jose Espinoza on December 18, 2021 at 11:24 am

    Where did you buy this kit?

  10. Gary Threadgill on December 18, 2021 at 11:25 am

    “It’s got Zombie Lock” O.K. I need this! 😂

  11. Green Ghost on December 18, 2021 at 11:25 am

    Great Video, I am installing the same system here in NZ, one question though, does the solar panel have a solar controller/regulator or is connected straight to the control box ?

  12. notunauthorized on December 18, 2021 at 11:25 am

    What mic do you use the quality was excellent when you were back on your four wheeler talking

  13. JP Williams on December 18, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Wonder how this would hold up in a canadian winter?looks like a great kit!

  14. Tight Lines With Tony on December 18, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Good video, what part of the country are you in? Looks beautiful

  15. James Powell on December 18, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Okay i spot a down fall to that system. 7:10 and 11:20 are your two pins for the arm you are better off drilling a hole in both pins and use padlocks.

  16. AudioGardenSlave on December 18, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Wouldn’t mind an update video on this system as to how well it’s worked and the quality of the components. Not really a video but an little update of sorts.

    I wish they would make that lock mechanism to have a long bolt that passes through a slot so you can’t bent the gate in the middle a couple of inches and slide the little bolt out of slot. Perhaps it’s more of a claw lock mechanism, I’m not sure cause it’s all covered up so maybe this isn’t a real issue.

  17. Joelee Finn on December 18, 2021 at 11:31 am

    Bear country?

  18. tom henry on December 18, 2021 at 11:31 am

    are you still happy with it and all parts? judging by the date 2019, that has given you a couple years of use… I am very close to purchase now… Thank you for your feedback in advance!

  19. PL on December 18, 2021 at 11:32 am

    Just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to make/ upload this video. Very helpful as I am planning to install this same solar gate opener. Thanks again.

  20. Jeremy Ewing on December 18, 2021 at 11:32 am

    Awesome video best one I’ve found so far thank you sir. Just had my drive way fenced off and a gate put up and been wanting something like this . How much was the cost of the hole set up ?

  21. JR on December 18, 2021 at 11:33 am

    Damm good video

  22. Alison M on December 18, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Wonderfully helpful video. Thank you!

  23. Isaiah McMillian on December 18, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Do they have a single remote to manage about five gates? One of them would be a dual gate.

  24. Big John on December 18, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Baby screwdriver, you must be from Carolinas too

  25. MrAudio77 on December 18, 2021 at 11:40 am

    how long has the battery for the keypad worked, and is there any notification that it is getting low before it dies?

  26. Iain Nicholson on December 18, 2021 at 11:41 am

    Excellent video.

  27. Jose Espinoza on December 18, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Was the exit sensor a separate purchase?

  28. Jess Till on December 18, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Just a question why do you always carry firearm is there bears around or you just don’t feel safe just wondering no offence gob bless

  29. Steve Aiken on December 18, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Thank you for making this video. I was planning on doing just this. I had not settled on an approach and your video brought it all together for me. Thank you brother.

  30. A Shaded Reflection on December 18, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Yes!

  31. Beany Carter on December 18, 2021 at 11:46 am

    What size is the mounting post 8X8 ?

  32. Jayshawn Cook on December 18, 2021 at 11:46 am

    You should add a door phone

  33. Loving Ivy Farm on December 18, 2021 at 11:47 am

    ya that is exciting really cool! I will definitely get something like this I hate when people just show up

  34. allen duncan on December 18, 2021 at 11:50 am

    I would like to find out where can I get this device for my farm

  35. Martin Cabrera on December 18, 2021 at 11:51 am

    I would put rubber cushions to soften the impact and sound

  36. N English on December 18, 2021 at 11:53 am

    I love this! I’m getting my first piece of land and leaving the city, and I want to do this too. I love the open carry too 👍🏻

  37. Scott Keilman on December 18, 2021 at 11:54 am

    Great video and I will purchase this unit after watching this. QUESTION: My gate is mounted on a large round metal pole, does this have some sort of attachment for this? Thank you

  38. Erline Boatman on December 18, 2021 at 11:56 am

    wow

  39. Green Ghost on December 18, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Hi there, I have the system up and running now but find the exit sensor to sensitive, I was standing way back with my car watching the gate and it kept opening, only birds flying low around sensor area and tree branches waving in the wind, shouldn’t the sensor only react to vehicles, as in cars bikes etc.. or can the sensitivity be adjusted ?
    thank you for your help

  40. Dale Ramage on December 18, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Can you still open the gate manually if it was winter and your batteries get to low ? Great system thanks for sharing.Dale

  41. sixshooter7651 on December 18, 2021 at 11:57 am

    What holster is that? I need one

  42. Rick Abrams on December 18, 2021 at 11:58 am

    do you know if the beeps can be silenced?

  43. Joe Sikkema on December 18, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Question. How long do the Ghost batteries last? Did you consider buying a Marine battery that will last a lot longer. I am purchasing the solar panel as well, but we don’t get a lot of sunshine in the winter…so the battery may need to provide the necessary charge. Thanks.

  44. Ekwu Owie on December 18, 2021 at 11:58 am

    What’s the size of the solar panel used and did you use any charge controller???

  45. AudioGardenSlave on December 18, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    I wish y’all would do a video on x, y, and z cause those letter have always been troublesome.

  46. gailanneM on December 18, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    I need a link for the driveway exit sensor system you used in the video…
    it doesn’t appear to be included in any of the links & I will be attempting to replicate your system.
    thanks for an informative & thorough video on the installation!

  47. Mark Camaro on December 18, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    I like the idea of pointing both pins up. (if concerned about someone lifting gate off I’m sure there would be a way to restrict that

  48. Review it TV on December 18, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    Thanks great video just had one question, does this kit come with a dual battery Box or a single battery Box or did you buy it separate?

  49. Scott Keilman on December 18, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    One more question, what do you do for deliveries UPS Fed Ex, etc.? Thanks

  50. Katherine Kelly on December 18, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    I am glad to see someone else besides me use a adjustable wrench as a hammer. In the process of installing one of these now, hence why I am watching this vid instead of my usual mindless junk. Not being mechanically inclined I will leave my pistol at home so I am not tempted to shoot the control box when the frustration reaches unmanageable levels. It has been known to happen in the past. The boards on the manure spreader look like swiss cheese because the dam thing is always breaking down.
