The Best Places to Install an electric Gate Opener
There are many different places that installing an electric gate opener can increase your security or improve the convenience of going in and out of the gate itself. In many cases an electric gate can do both at that same time. Picture this, it is a dark and stormy night as you pull up to gates that secure your driveway at home, with the rain starting to come down and some less than savory characters in the area, do you really want to get out of your car to open the gates?
Unless you don’t mind getting soaked to the bone and are built like a weightlifter, chances are good that you really don’t want to get out of the car. If you do not have an electric gate opener installed on your gates, you are left with no choice but to get out of your car, getting soaked and praying that just because the characters hanging around look rough, it means nothing and they will all go on their merry way, leaving you to your soaking as you open and close the gates.
Wouldn’t life be so much more pleasant if you could open the gates from inside the dry of your car with the push of a button that would open the gates using an electric gate and then close them again once you have driven through them? Not only will you have been able to stay dry, but with the car doors securely locked you will be perfectly safe no matter who happens to be hanging around.
From a commercial point of view, your yard is secured by a sliding gate that is long enough to let in all of your delivery vehicles. This gate has to be kept closed for security reasons during business hours and weighs upward of a thousand pounds. Despite the fact that it rolls a smooth as can be, it is still far too heavy for most people to move, but an electric gate opener can take all of the stress and strain out of opening and closing your gate several times each day.
You can set your electric gate opener up with a keypad security system that will allow your drivers to open and close the gate as needed. At the same time you can place controls inside so that someone can let in visitors and other drivers who do not work for you. This way your facility always remains fully secured and no one has to deal with trying to open and close the gate manually.
