    Yes you are right The charging circuit for 95% of panels assume Pb batteries. Remember that Pb batteries can only charge safely at 0.1C (i.e. a 7Ah battery at 0.7A) and as such the power supply itself is just a capacitive dropper circuit set to an ouput of ~13.8V @ ~1A (300mA for nomal panel...

    Lead batteries only like to get 50% DoD before you do damage to them (that is decrease their capacity) Just go to communica and replace them with normal sealed 7Ah ones (~R150), then connect two 7Ah batteries in parallel.

    Sentry vs Griffon

    Any You can buy the Rx modules separately. The gate controller will simply open the gate when the correct pole is brought to ground. All that the remote receiver does is take 12V from the battery and pull a third wire to ground when the remote button signal is received fwiw, I like the...
