     DIYGateOpeners.com has a unique system for developing a package that will be right for your property. Instead of dictating to you, our customer, a few accessories that we feel fit some needs by being paired up and giving you a discount on them; we allow you to make an informed decision and create your own package. As you review our accessory pages you will learn the "What" (what the product does) and the "Why" (why you may need it) of each product and then as you add products to your shopping order the savings grow. Each item has built in discounts when paired with other items, so your package will continue to improve financially as you find the correct products that actually meet your needs.

Your main decision is whether to go plugged into an outlet to charge the gate openers batteries or to connect a solar panel to charge the batteries. Either way the all the gate openers still function the same way, off a battery (with the exception of the GP commercial units). If you are over 1000' for an outlet the choice is simple, solar; if you are under you need to weight the options between cost of wire and time running it vs. cost of the solar panel(s) and the amount of sun in your part of the world. Also on this page you will find all the products needed to keep your gate opener powered and running.
