4 Benefits of Having an Automatic Gate at Your Home
One of the most important aspects of your home is its security. Fortunately, nowadays you have a variety of options to enhance the security of your home, for example, technologically advanced alarm systems, video cameras, electric fences, guard dogs, etc. Apart from these, you can install an automatic gate to further increase your home’s security as well as gain some added benefits. Automatic gates offer a lot of benefits, from added security to access control to convenience. In some areas, they are often a necessity rather than luxury.
Following are 4 major benefits of having an automatic gate installed at your home:
One of the primary benefits of an automatic gate is the added security it provides. Getting out of your car in order to open the gate can be quite dangerous, particularly from a personal safety perspective. Some individuals get attacked or hijacked while opening their gates. While you cannot remove this possibility entirely by installing an automatic gate, it will definitely lessen the risk. Furthermore, some modern automatic gates have an adjustable setting which means you can quickly open and close the gate and reduce the time you are stationary in your car drastically. There are also automatic gates with an auto-closing feature, so you won’t have to worry about closing the gate once you are in your house.
Primary gates of homes are usually very heavy. Opening such a gate can be irritating and inconvenient. Nobody wants to get out of their car and struggle to open the gate every time they return home. Elderly people or individuals with injuries and disabilities are particularly unable to open a heavy gate manually. By installing an automatic gate, you can bring an entire new aspect of convenience in your life. Nowadays, most automatic gates feature GSM-modules, which means you can easily trigger your gate via your smartphone. So, it is simpler and easier for everyone.
Modern automatic gates do more than just open and close remotely, there are some models that provide onboard timers, enabling you to bar certain inputs from working or activate automatically at set times, on the other hand some gates can be interfaced with third party infrared beams and alarm systems so that you are notified when an intruder wanders in front of your gate. It’s easy to see how an automatic gate that has only one purpose of opening and closing has now become a mini electronic defense force for the homeowners.
4. Access Control
Automatic gates nowadays offer excellent methods of access control. With an advanced automatic gate, you can set up to check how many times the gate has been opened during the day or night. And if a security company monitors the security of the premises, they will be able to easily check to ensure that all openings of your gate correspond with the schedule check you have set up.It certainly pays to have an automatic gate at your home that provides access control.
