Default Automate gate systems- Any DIY's innovated on this and want to share?

I've recently taken on a project to automate my motorized window blinds. Going pretty well! I'll share more about the experience (with pictures) when done.

In the meantime, I want to also automate my gate in front of my house, exactly like this one:



I want to be able to press a button and also be able to use a remote (like a garage door opener in my car) to open it up.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Would love to see some innovative ways DIYers have built automated door systems.
