Access control should be the number one priority when it comes to your property. Safety and security cannot be underestimated, which is why the most effective line of defense for a business or residential property should be the place where access happens.
Access to your property can be controlled in a number of ways, and there are multiple avenues to pursue it. Perhaps the most simplest form of access control is the humble gate. Gates, of course, can come in a number of shapes and sizes, built for pedestrian or vehicle traffic. But no matter what style the gate is, it can be controlled electrically.
There are two types of electric gate openers: hydraulic and electromechanical. These use different mechanical forces to open the gate, but both are controlled electronically. Whether control occurs via manual device or automatic transmitter, the gate can be fitted with solar panels to ensure continued operation even during blackouts.
When you’ve decided on an electric gate opener, you’ve opened up a host of options for how to control it. The best control method for the job will be the one that suits your needs best.
The most direct control methods involve a physically attached button or key pad. The user wanting access simply hits the button or types in a code and access is granted. This is great for pedestrian entry or even car entry, provided you have a convenient spot to place the control mechanism.
A more convenient option for vehicle traffic might be the wireless remote control. This works exactly like a home garage door opener, in which a remote kept inside the vehicle is used to grant access as the driver approaches the gate.
Both of these types of control require direct action on the part of the individual seeking access. For a truly seamless option, there are automatic electronic gate openers. These use motion sensors, pressure sensors, and other physical monitoring devices to recognize when someone is approaching, opening the gate for access without any action required. These are often programmed to operate during specific times of day to ensure access is restricted, for example, at nighttime.
