Lightning hit my gate access control and killed all the electronics in the keypad. The keypad control box has a call button, a speaker that was used with the telephone controls, and the keypad.

After the lightning hit I converted the call button to a doorbell with a peizo buzzer.

I want to somehow connect the speaker in the keypad box to a speaker in my home so I can hear the activity at my gates. We have had vandels try to break in the gates.

Does anyone have a diagram or plan I could use to activate sound back to my gates?
I have video at the gates with 4 cameras but I don't have audio.

One way audio is all I need now.

There are dozens of schematics, but my guess it that you wan to use existing parts. There's no way to describe what's needed without knowing, in detail, what you have.

I have a older speakerphone box that we use to answer an incoming telephone call. It has no dial, just an off/on button, a volume control slide switch and a mute button. It's powered by a 9v transformer and the unit has a builtin modular telephone cord that we plugged into a telephone jack.

I want to try to connect the MIC wiring at the gate keypad control box to this unit at my home.

Anyone have any ideas on wiring together these two devices? I have about 200 feet from the house to the gate and plenty of wire, even cat5 and cat 6 wire I could use. With this device I might be able to have two way intercom, if I can use the mic and the speaker at the gate.
