How to Open Gate with Smartphone?


Method 1 – Use Physical Relay Switch

One method is to use a physical relay switch to trigger the door opening circuit and operating the door with the help of a module that can connect your home server and mobile on the same server and communicate accordingly.

The drawback is, this method needs technical expertise and basic engineering knowledge for proper implementation.

Method 2 – Get a Smartphone Gate Control Interface
