Welcome! More information will get you better answers.

Is gate already motorized, and you only need remote control?

If not, how heavy and does it swing like door or roll sideways?

There are more questions, but depend on what you have already.

Cheers,

My gate isn`t motorized yet because I don`t know how powerful motors i need.The gate is made from two parts and swing like doors,one part has about 1.85m and 90kg(it`s not so heavy because it isn`t made of wrought iron),and i thinked to did that with articulated arms but i don`t know if it is the best solution.Thank you for the answer :grin:

Starting from nothing on swinging gate ... hmmm

Maybe motorcycle sprockets and chain, or drum and steel cable ...

:idea: Garage door opener turned sideways??? That would come with reversable AC motor and remote control.

Any of those will need custom covers to keep fingers and rain out of moving parts.

... guys ??
