again, it works fine through bacngate.  You may not hear the audio from the
WYSE since it has a puny piezo speaker.
--> just because it doesn't work for *you* doesn't mean it is *broken*
 I test by triggering the script (opengate, bacngate from pony, or the
open-gate script on the touch panel control system itself ) while standing
at the top the stairs and listening for the electric strike buzzing that
indicates the gate is unlocked.  If the strike is running quietly (as it
wears out it tends to operate silently), I have someone listen at the door
downstairs and report the function.

this is the way I tested it to get it running.
