Since I don't have an existing opener, I would basically have to park just inside the gate and wait for someone with an opener to pull up to the gate and program it. Will that work, or does the Homelink require multiple "zaps" to acquire the code?
Homelink works fine for security gates also.

You'll need to borrow an existing remote to program it.
