The number one benefit is security. They provide a buffer zone between your home and the undesirable elements lurking on the streets. Electrically controlled gates are a serious deterrent to the opportunist burglar, car thief or vandal. They are powered by motors that make it difficult for intruders to force open and you can also fit a lock for even greater protection. Your automated gates could form part of a comprehensive home security system which would include video surveillance of the entrance and boundaries of your property.


Keep out other unwanted callers and door-to-door salesmen. Visitors will normally use an intercom fitted by the gate to contact you before you let them in. This allows you to decide who enters your property

Comfort and convenience is a major benefit. It is simple to open your gates using a remote control without having to leave your car. Would you like stay warm and dry inside your car, then with the press of a button, open and close your gate? Ordinary gates are often left open because it is just too much trouble to manually open and close them every time you pass through your drive. Electric gates have a very practical benefit too. If your gates are large and heavy it may be physically difficult to open and close them manually

Safety for children and pets is very important. Just as unwanted visitors are prevented from entering by automated gates so children can be kept safely on the premises. Electric gates can be set up to close automatically after they have been used so you do not need to worry that you have left them open and allowed your children or pets to wander out

Electric gates will keep out wild animals like deer and rabbits and prevent them damaging the plants in your garden

They can also give you privacy. If you have automatic solid wooden gates installed they will prevent prying eyes observing your home

Prevent other motorists using your drive to turn their cars or even to park

An attractively designed set of automatically operating gates will enhance the appearance of your home. They will give it extra style and exclusivity and so add to the value of your home

Finally you may be able to benefit from a lower insurance rate. Some insurers may offer discount for enhanced perimeter protection

There are just so many benefits from installing electric gates that everyone who owns a home with a drive should strongly consider installing a set. You can improve your home security, your family's safety, make life easier and add to the value of your home at the same time

The cost of electric gates is much lower than it was years ago when automation was first being used. Then it was only the mega rich who had their gates automated. Nowadays advances in technology mean that gate automation is within reach of many more people
