    If this has been asked/answered before, apologies and please direct me to the appropriate thread.

    My home has a gate and a garage door in close proximity (about 2 car lengths apart). The gate has an old Link multi-code system, while the garage is a modern system.

    Programming the Tesla for both devices is not a problem. The problem is, when I set them both to be auto-opened, the system always tries to fire both signals nearly simultaneously. I've tried many ways to set the location for each so that there is more of a natural delay based on proximity, but to no avail. As I approach the gate, I hear the chime twice in quick succession, and either the garage or the gate wins. Never do both open, and sometimes neither responds.

    If I remove the garage door from auto-open, the gate opens reliably on approach. I can then manually select the garage and it opens right up. This behavior tells me the two transmissions are somehow interfering.

    Is there any way at all to get a bit of a pause between device one and device two? The current behavior seems like a bug to me.
