I'd like to build a wooden driveway gate about 10'6" wide by 5' tall to shield by rear yard from prying eyes and hopefully hinder burglars from the rear of my home.
The thing is, I can hear my wife complaining about having to get out of the car in pouring rain/snow/sleet to open the gate to pull in the driveway, get back in the car, pull in, and then have to get out in the rain/snow/sleet to close the gate before going inside.

Does anyone have any experience installing (or having installed) an electrically activated swing-in gate opener? I've searched the web an found a few manufacturers but wanted to get some owner's opinions of the products.

I've posted this in the "Doors and Windows" forum as well...If you have any advice, could you kindly post it in the "Doors and Windows" forum? Thanks.
