Convenient-Ways-to-Open-Your-Automatic-Gate-RemotelyOne of the biggest benefits of installing an automatic gate on your property is a combination of security and convenience. Your home is better protected from unwanted visitors but you can still easily enter and exit as you want, opening and closing the automatic gate remotely. It makes a huge difference compared to getting out of your car to manually open the gate!

There are several methods that you can use to open your automatic gate remotely to ensure you get the utmost convenience from your gate. Some are better than others, although the amount you want to spend and the number of remote-control access devices you need will influence which works best for you.

Here are the top 3 most convenient ways to open your automatic gate remotely:

Remote Control
As the name suggests, a remote-control device is usually the most convenient way to open your automatic gate remotely! There are various remote control devices for automatic gates, some with advanced features while others are more basic.

In most cases, it involves pressing a button or combination of buttons on the control device to send a signal to the receiver on the gate. This prompts the gate to open from various distances, with the more advanced remote control gate openers featuring an impressive range.

As the cheapest and most convenient device for opening an automatic gate, you cannot go wrong with a remote controller for quick and easy access to your property.

Fob/Cards
Fob or card access is another convenient way to remotely open an automatic gate, although the fact it needs to contact a sensor means you need to be a certain distance from the gate. This may not be much of an issue however, considering you need to wait for the gate to open anyway!

Plus, unlike a keypad that requires a number to be manually entered, you simply need to place the fob or card within reach of the receiver and the rest takes care of itself.

While you do need to contact the fob or card with the sensor near the gate, it remains a very convenient way to open the gate, especially because you don’t need to get outside of your vehicle!

Proximity Entry
While not the most secure form of entry, a proximity entry system offers plenty of convenience by automatically opening when your car is within a specific proximity of the sensor. Just pull up to the gate and it will start opening itself, offering the utmost convenience as you don’t need any type of device on you.

Of course, the big drawback is that restricting access is more difficult, although you can turn the proximity entry system off when you’re home to have more controlled access to your property.

I have to say that the service at Superior Gate Services was fantastic. Cindy first took my call and was super helpful and friendly.  We just bought a home that has an electric gate and we wanted it repaired and serviced.  She managed to get us into a slot the next day and called that next morning to give us a time range. Great follow-up! Our technician Sean (I hope I remembered his name correctly) was awesome and went through the repairs,  and gave several operating and home maintenance tips to my husband.  This company aims to please on all counts and delivers !!  We will be using them again and would definitely recommend them.

I got a quote the same afternoon I inquired, had the gate installed within a week, and Scott and his crew have always gone above and beyond to help out, even reconnecting my garage wires that the dog ripped out when they were just quoting me on the gate. If I've ever had any trouble, they go out of their way to come out promptly and help in anyway they can... Obviously without ever charging me for a visit. Highly recommend!!

Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had called them last week first when my automatic gate stopped working but then remembered that I had a home warranty so told them never mind but then it ended up not being covered. So I emailed them back and they called me the next business day and came over within an hour! Scott came out and told me it just needed some tuning up and the actual opener was in good shape and one of the best ones. So he did a tune up and he helped me change the code for my gate opener!

Called these guys off their positive yelp reviews after getting the run around from another contractor. They took my first service call and responded quickly and took care of the problem and worked around my schedule. Since that first call uv had two other properties needing their services and just like the first call no hassles. Show up take care of it and reasonable prices. They don't hit you with extras like some others do they fix the problem and then they do a full tune up and cleaning on the gate at the same time. My other contractor would charge extra to do the tune up. That's dumb. Just make it happen. That's what they do. They just make it happen without taking you to the bank. Thanks superior for being on the team, your a great asset.
