The way that the manufacturer directions state, that comes with the devices, along with following the NEC if you are in North America, and CEC if you are in Canada, unless you are in an area that does not follow, then you go by the local rules.

You hire an excavation contractor to dig a trench to the end of your driveway.
Then you hire an electrician to wire lights down the drive and power to the gate.

Seriously. Asking this this way is like asking "How do I rebuild the engine in my car?"

That is what Wal-mart is for. Didn't you know that. It is also the same as going to Best Buy, and letting the hacks there tell you that you need a $500 hdmi cable, even though the $6.00 hdmi from monoprice is just as good.
