Electric gates are becoming increasingly common and are no longer just for big stately homes. There are many advantages to having an electric gate installed at you home. Initially you may decide to have one installed for security. It may be that you want to ensure that no one is able to come on to your driveway without your knowing. Security gates can often be installed with a range of different devices to control them. You may have a remote control or a button in your house that allows you to open and close them. You may also want an intercom installed to allow two-way communication before opening the gates and allowing someone in.
Electric gates are much more practical than manual ones as you do not have to worry about getting out of your car to open them. You can stay in the comfort of your vehicle and click a button to allow you access. Sometimes manual gates can cause security concerns as often owners pull up by the gate, get out of the vehicle and leave it running whilst opening the gate. This is the perfect opportunity for criminals to strike as they often watch a property and learn your routines before committing the offense.
