I am very new to this. Literally starting today - 2/1/2018.

I have gate on my house driveway and the driveway leads to my garage. I was able to use some liftmaster stuff to control my garage door via my phone but I want to do the same to my gate.

The switch I have at home on the wall is similar to a door bell switch. When I press the switch down and release, it closes the circuit and the door either opens or closes. I want to control my gate open and close from my phone and also want to know if the status is OPEN or closed.
I have read some blogs about using esp-8266 but I don't understand it well.

Any help would be awesome.

Thanks
Sri
