Automated Gates

When we install automated gates, it becomes part of our home’s “feng shui”. An automated gate is an electric solution that gives you complete control over who enters and leaves your property. Your electric gates can be set to close automatically after a certain period of time has elapsed or when the ambient temperature drops below a certain point (nighttime gate closure). Or, you can use a remote control to open and close the gate from anywhere in the world. Gate automation offers many solutions to security problems and on top of that doesn’t require much maintenance.

Automated gates and high-security fencing options are becoming a necessity for many homeowners who are keen to improve their overall security. Learn what makes these new high-security fencing and gates so different from the basic ones you may have already.

What is Gate Automation?

Automatic gates are becoming more popular in many areas of our lives. They are used in residential settings, businesses, and gardens alike to keep the people in or the animals out. They offer a solution to make it easier for us to control who has access to our home, business, or garden. These are gates that can open automatically when you approach and close when you walk away. They can be controlled from a panel inside your home or business, or in the case of ‘smart gates’, from your mobile phone from anywhere in the world.

How Do Automated Gates work?

Automated gates work by having a sensor on the gate and sending signals to the gate when someone enters or leaves. This is done with the help of radio waves. You can install many different kinds of sensors, such as the RFID (radio frequency identification), microwave radar, ultrasonic sensor, etc. An automated gate will also work in conjunction with an electronic security system, which means that you can use the automated gates to let people in or out without opening or closing the gate manually. You can control the automated gates from your computer or smartphone. The gate will automatically open or close when you want it to do so.

What Level Of Security Do Automatic Gates Provide?

We use automatic gates because they provide the highest level of security of any type of physical barrier we can use to protect residential or commercial property from unauthorised persons. Automatic gates are a great addition to our security program because they allow us to control entry into our property 24 hours a day, seven days a week. we can also easily monitor visitors who are authorised to enter our business or property with video surveillance. This will help us to identify any potential threats or intruders before they get too close to our property.

When we are looking at different types of gates that are available for installation, we should always look for ones that have remote control features. This way, we can open and close the gate from anywhere in the world with the push of a button. If we have a big property and we want to make sure no one gets in or out without our knowledge, this is a great option for us. Even better, we can put up several of these gates around your property and we can control them all from one central location. This provides maximum protection for us, at our business or home. It also lets us know if someone is trying to break into our property or not.

An automated gate is just one form of physical barrier that you can use to enhance your security. You should also look at other accessories like lighting, video surveillance, motion detectors, dogs, etc. When you are adding extra security to your property, you should use multiple forms of protection. The correct garden fencing panels are also something that should be considered for maximum protection.

Which Garden Fencing Panels should I use with my Automated Gates

The most important thing to know about fencing is that it’s not a one-size-fits-all product. Different fencing products are better suited for different applications. For example, a chain-link fence is more affordable than a timber fence. But a timber fence provides more privacy than a chain-link fence. You can also consider aluminium or other metal options.  It really comes down to what level of security and privacy you are after.  The best bet is to get advice from an installation company like us.

Where can I view my gate automation options?

When considering an electric gate you should view your options in a showroom before making a decision.  Share your vision with the installation company.  You might want automated gates that are made out of timber or metal or require a gate that slides rather than opens, so investigating all of the automated gates that are available is a must to ensure the company can offer the services you require.  Go out in the field and have a look at electric gate installation first hand.  See the gates that have already been installed.
