I have an automatic gate that I go through frequently. It uses a non-homelink compatible protocol and the windshield does a great job of blocking the transmitter/clicker. Holding the clicker out the window is getting old. The clicker uses a simple push button and I can trigger it with a separate switch that I could put near the dashboard via wires snaked through the bulkhead. I was hoping to build a more integrated solution. My idea is to use a homelink receiver like this and tie it's contact closure terminals to the gate opener clicker button. I'd put both in the nosecone. Then I program a homelink button to trigger the receiver which in turn triggers the gate opener. Here's a diagram: Has anyone done something similar? Based on other posts I've seen here, I assume that the nosecone is RF transparent and that 12V is available without too much fuss. The only thing I'm unsure about is whether the homelink transmitter reaches the nosecone. I think it's very likely but won't know till I try.
