Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. You most likely have a safety sensor (infrared light beam sensor) that crosses the gate path, and when the sun is shining on it at just the right angle, it can obstruct the sensor from viewing the transmitted beam properly. The best way around this is to add some shading over the transmitter and receiver units. Best regards,Nathan
