So why do you want a gate?

This is one of the questions a good gate installer is likely to ask you so that s/he can help you design the gate system that’s right for you.

If “I just don’t want passing drivers turning around in my driveway” is the only reason you’ve considered so far, let’s give you a little more food for thought.

Some of the benefits of having an automated gate installed are:
• security;
• improved curb appeal;
• increased property value;
• safety for your children and pets;
• and privacy.

Security

Automated driveway gates are a good first layer of security.

Most thefts are crimes of opportunity. If your home has a security gate and your neighbor’s home does not, which house do you think a thief will target first? If you answered, “Not mine,” then you are very likely correct.

Home invasion is another scenario in which having an automated gate increases your security. If the bad guys can’t even get through your gate, they aren’t going to be able to get to your front door.

With a voice communication system or intercom at your driveway gate, you can decide by talking to a person if you even want to let them in your gate. With a camera system you can visually verify if they are who they say they are.
