Is it possible to add Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to a solar powered gate?
Yes, it is possible to add Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to your existing solar powered gates. When it comes to solar powered gates, we know that current consumption is very important, that's why we designed Remootio 3 to be an optimal choice for solar powered gates.
At 12 Volts, the average current consumption of Remootio 3 is ~30mA in normal mode and ~15mA in low power mode. (If needed, you can turn on low power mode in the Remootio app / settings / low power mode).
A typical gate battery has 7000mAh of charge. This means that a Remootio 3 unit can operate on a single battery for weeks, even if the battery is not recharged. In solar powered gate systems the battery is being recharged by the solar system during daytime which means that the system can run continuously throughout the year without the battery being drained.
The voltage of your solar battery can be displayed in the app and Remootio can notify you if the battery voltage drops below a specified threshold.
Enter the model number of your solar powered gate in the compatibility checker below to see if it's compatible. If you can't find the model you have, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
