Should driveway gates open in or out?
Beside this, can driveway gates open outwards?
Gates that open outward open onto pathways and even into the road. This is not acceptable for safety reasons and because they could cause an obstruction. Unless there is sufficient space on the property to accommodate them opening fully, swing gates should open inwards towards the prepertry.

Similarly, should Gates open in or out?
A gate should always swing inward toward private space, not outward toward public space. If a pathway approaches the gate from an angle, hinge the gate so that it opens toward the path, rather than blocking it off. If none of these factors is an issue, hinge the gate on the right side as it opens toward you.
How do automatic gates open?
The automatic gate opener monitors the inductance in the wire, and when it senses a change of the inductance, it opens the gate. We have the ability to easily trick the gate into thinking there is a car present, resulting in the gate opening. Once the ground pad is slid into position, the gate will open.
