Q:I have 2 sensors installed, one inside and one outside (far apart). One of them keeps triggering spontaneously. Latest night it was opening/closing every 2 minutes or so and had to disable it. Anyone have this experience or advice?

    A:  Our gate was randomly opening as well. We realized it was our neighbors electric powered gate, about 240' down the street that was activating our solar powered gate. This also wore down our battery quickly. We changed the frequency codes and it worked.

      Q:We just purchased the MM FM500 gate opener (not installed yet), and I am looking at accessories for it. My lawn maintenance crew comes 2 to 3 times a month, if they enter the 12' zone with a riding lawn mower, will it activate the gate to open? I have 3 dogs that run loose in the yard, so gate must remain closed unless entering or exiting, and would hate to see it opening and closing with each pass of the mower.

      A:  Hello Enygma, Depending on how large the riding mower is, the wired vehicle sensor could be activated. To ensure the gate is not opened by a riding mower, I would recommended using digital keypads (model #'s MMKPD or FM137-PED) for entry and exiting of your property. This would enable you to give a specific entry and exit code to your lawn maintenance crew. Thank you,

        A:  Yes. A lawnmower of any size will set it off. But only expect the sensor to work for a few months before needing to be replaced or repaired.

          Q:I am wondering what happens if the first vehicle activates the gate and 10 seconds later another vehicle or two drive by the sensor.

          A:  If the unit is working, the gate will stay open for all of the cars as long as they are on or moving. When it works, it is great. Don;t expect it to keep working for more than a few months though.

            A:  BigW, Thank you for posting your question. When using a vehicle exiting sensor, the gate will stay open for as long as you have the auto close time function set to. The auto close time can be adjusted from 3 to 120 seconds. If another car approaches the gate opening sensor while the gate opener is attempting to close, the gate would simply open back up. If a car leaves your property and 10 seconds later another car leaves your property while the gate gate is in the fully opened position, the auto close time would just reset to the time you have it adjusted to. Thank you,

                The sensor worked well for about 4 months, but has stopped working entirely now. I have tried disassembling the control box and disconnecting the batteries to reset everything (many times). In fact the entire Mighty mule system has been a disaster since installing it. The control box has to be disassembled once or twice a week to re-adjust the gate closure or to re-set the unit so it will start working again. My family and i have been trapped inside our gate more times than we can count. Do yourself a favor and invest in a different brand. Mighty Mule has been a nightmare for us.

                  good product
                  The gate opener serves it purpose to keep people out and to control who comes on our property. The gate is very slow to open and slow to close, which sometimes allows our dogs to get out. Wish we could change the timing to get it to close faster. Overall, a great product. We would purchase it again
