Bought the FM140 for a remote powered livestock gate on a private road that leads to my home. It has been in operation for a year and has worked well. Whether passed by cars, tractors, mowers or ATV's, the FM140 consistently recognizes vehicles and opens the gate. Just drive up an the gate opens. My only regret is the 100' cable that I chose. If I buy another, it will be a 200' cable to reduce wait time as the gate opens.

This things was a major chore to put the wire in the ground, but that is not a reflection of the quality of the product--just be aware. Also, be aware that you cannot drive through the gate & hit the button to close it after you pass through, as it will open back up when you pass by the sensor on the way in. We should have thought of that, but we were very accustomed to seeing the gate close triggering a close.

The wand works every time. I do not have it opening a gate, but turning on equipment when a car pulls up. It works very well and the installation was easy. We placed it under blacktop and the sensor is strong enough to sense flawlessly every time.

Works great. Easy to install. Does what it says it will do, unlike most Washington politicans. The only downside is the low voltage wire can't be spliced. Our dogs dug up the freshly laid wire and severed it. Called tech support and was told it can't be spliced. I did and it worked but he stated it would not last. Keeping fingers crossed.

I have a Mighty Mule 350 gate operator with the accessory package (key pad and 10 watt photo cell). Everything worked great until I installed the driveway vehicle sensor. Although the sensor opens the gate as it should, now the gate opens and closes arbitrarily at intervals ranging from fifteen to forty-five minutes. When I disconnected the sensor, operation returned to normal; however, there is no way for an exiting "visitor" to open the gate. I'll be contacting GTO to find a resolution.

I love my FM140 100-feet Gate opening wand sensor. It makes it much easier for our quest leaving our home. They don't have to punch a code in a key pad which does not always work. I am amazed at its sensitivity. It opens the gate for my lawnmower, ATV and bicycle. It was easy to install. I would recommend this wand sensor to anyone who is tired of dealing with key pads.

After reading the reviews about GTO gate company, I decided to take a chance that they may have improved. Not the case, after installing the system, with buried wand as an exit opener, I could not get wound to function. Followed instructions to the letter, matching color codes and +/_-continuity Checked all readings with my multi meter to match the instructual diagrams from the computer down load site for trouble shooting. After 5 e-mails to the troubleshooter hot line, with no results, I have about given up, but not before complaining in hopes this gets back to someone at the GTO company. It is unbelievable that in this day of instant reviews that they would jeopardize their reputation over not suppling a functioning hot line reply. I hope Amazon takes not of their service to Amazons' valued customers, and contacts GTO, if THEY can reach them, to evaluate the poor service. My window for return has passed, so I am stuck with a very expensive gate opener. I use it as a door/gate stop to hold the gate opened now, with a big Lemon sign next to it for all to see. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT !!! ART
