Many homeowners seek to secure and beautify their homes with entrance gates. They add majesty and security in a small way like they would for any castle or fortress. There is a lot to know about automatic driveway gates. Sarasota Gate & Access thought it would be helpful to provide you with some information all about automatic driveway gate equipment.
Choosing The Right Gate Equipment
As you may have experienced already, gates can be unlocked or triggered by several different mechanisms. This runs the gamut of EZ-pass-style RFID readers, remote controls, keypads, and in-ground magnetic sensors. The sensors are perhaps the fanciest approach. They detect large metal objects (your car), and have different ways of responding: free entry, free exit, and safety. The EZ-Pass option is great for homes or housing complexes in need of heightened security. These work in such a way as to only allow access/entry to vehicles possessing the EZ Pass.
Advanced Security Features
There are many other features that can make your home or facility even more secure. Telephone entry systems, timed access codes for electric gates, and camera systems are among the many options available. Some security systems even include a log that can track all the codes being used.
Plan For Emergencies
All technology has some chance of failure or malfunction. It’s wise to take this into account. You can safeguard your security system further with battery back-ups, integration with your home’s alarm system, an emergency manual mode, and surge protection in the event of lightning disruption.
