Gate entry systems are often the front line when it comes to access control for a given property. Access control is, of course, the bedrock security measure for any private or commercial property, ensuring that only those with the proper credentials are granted entry. Gate systems ensure that any unauthorized persons are kept at a distance.
With that in mind, gate entry systems are an excellent first security focus. The idea encompasses the world of access control gates for a wide spectrum of applications, in a number of materials and forms. This means looking at everything from pedestrian access to vehicle gates, and ornamental gates to large, purely functional iron gates.
The best gate entry systems are those that work seamlessly and directly. As with any type of security, the system that is used most consistently is most effective.
Gates can be manually operated or electrically powered, although the former are usually found in equestrian, garden, or other rural settings. When it comes to urban settings, electrical power is important and can often powered by solar panels. This allows the gate to function as an access control point even in the event of a power outage.
Electric gates, whether protecting entry to a driveway, a commercial parking lot, or any other application, can be controlled via one of several mechanisms. This can mean proximity sensors that read motion or weight, keycard readers, and even wide range wireless sensors that can scan for an entry credential installed in a vehicle.
Whether the gate hinges in- or outward, slides along a secure fence, or raises, their control mechanisms will determine their effectiveness. Gate entry systems encompasses a broad space that can accommodate the latest technology and time-tested, trustworthy materials.
