Designing an Automated Gate for Easy Access
An Automated Gate System Can Provide Easy Access In and Out of your Home
An automated gate is one thing; however a simple easy access system is built around the automation and the accessories used to activate the automation. The key factors to decide on are reliability versus convenience versus price.
A die-hard reliable automated system is a simple one; consider a keypad on the inside and outside (keypads rarely go bad and don’t have false triggers). You will also be designing a price conscience system but you are giving up some convenience with a keypad in that guest would need codes and need to stop and roll down their window both inbound and outbound. If you wanted the gate to be designed to be accessible by people without codes and completely automatic on exiting then you can get a telephone access system and an exit loop. The hard wired telephone access systems and buried loops are more reliable than their counterparts (wireless keypads and exit probes or wands). This will provide convenience in addition to the reliability but certainly at price. Lastly you can have the last option in a more cost effective combination of a wireless intercom and exit wand at a great price. Just keep in mind - both of these devices can pick up interference that may hinder the reliability you seek.
