Simple Gate Switch that triggers in house alarm

There are so many units and choices out there.. I need some basic direction for buying a device for my purpose.
All I need is a simple waterproof switch and transmitter that will signal a receiver in the house that will operate a chime when the gate is opened. It must timeout or auto reset so that manual reset is not required. this is not a locked gate.

There is no power on the gate so that end will have to be battery controlled and
again it must be outdoor rated and waterproof.

Inside unit can be powered by a wall transformer. Distance involved about 30 feet.

Thanks for your help
Don M.
