I have this idea of writing an app/something to make the gate, that we have in front of our house, smart. But I just don't know where to start. I assume that the gate uses IR because we have remotes for it, but I'm not sure. The gate also has a codepad and I want everything to work simultaneously. Meaning that when I'm done with my project the remotes and code still work.
So, can anyone help me to get started with this project?
- Would it be logical for the gate to use IR? What would it use otherwise?
- Should I try to read and emit the same signal using a Pi/Arduino?
