Stop – before you start on all the reasons why your home isn’t big enough, expensive enough, or important enough for an automatic gate, slow down. The odds are good that you already have a fence around your property, and that fence has some sort of residential gate. This is because you understand the value that those things add to your home – keeping your property, family, and home safe and secure. An automatic gate can also help achieve those things and more for your home. If it is time to replace your fence, consider installing one with an automatic gate. Read on for several reasons why you should.
Automatic gates allow for better security of your property than a standard gate because they allow you to exercise stricter access control. Automatic gates can be fitted with keypads or card readers to control who can open them. They can also be paired with security cameras and call boxes if you need to be able to allow visitors in. Some can even operate like an automatic garage door and respond to the transponder in your car. The bottom line is that if you’re controlling who has access to your property, you are taking better care of your family and possessions and keeping them safe.
Reasonable For Any Home
While this level of security may feel like overkill for your home, it’s really not. You don’t think it’s at all odd to have an automatic garage door opener, and an automatic gate is the same system. Having an automatic gate just means you could fence in more of your yard because you wouldn’t have to get out to open the gate when you drive into the driveway.
Better Than A Standard Gate
A traditional gate can be locked, but in most cases, those are locks that operate from only one side. If you want to be able to access your yard without going through the house to unlock the gate first, you need a gate that can be unlocked from either side, and an automatic gate makes that very simple. Having an automatic gate is simply more convenient.
Improved Curb Appeal
Finally, as long as the automatic gate doesn’t look out of place, no one will think that it is – and you will likely see a nice boost in your curb appeal and home value.
