I present the features

Firstly, everything was made simple with the wireless dual-gate communication which eliminates expensive conduit costs. Installation and troubleshooting was made easier with a LED diagnostic display, and the unit possess a solar-ready ultra-reliable system. The gate opener itself has a bi-part delay which monitors and adjusts the speed and position of the wings in order to ensure that the primary gate closes last. Two great features are the synchronized close as well as the quick close, which closes the gate instantly after a vehicle pulls off the interrupt loop. Anti-Tailgate is very useful since it prevents unauthorized access. The opener is also HOMELINK compatible and offers security + 2.0 On-Board radio receiver.
