Installing electric gates is not only a great way to protect your car from being stolen, they also effectively move your first line of defence away from your front door to your gateway. Here at FirstEye we have many years of installing electric gates in properties throughout Leeds and surrounding areas. Over the past few years electric gates have become increasingly popular with homeowners. In this article we’ll look at the benefits of installing electric gates and the different types of gates available.
What are the benefits of electric gates?
The most obvious benefit of installing electric gates is obviously security. Offer a highly effective deterrent, electrically controlled gates will deter opportunist thieves or vandals from attempting to steal your vehicle or enter your property.
Electric gates offer convenience too: standard gates are often installed for security reasons and then left open for most of the time because they are heavy, difficult and inconvenient to close. Installing electric gates solves this problem at a stroke as they can be controlled either from a smart phone app, video or audio intercom system, whilst automatic gate systems are also available.
Practicality is also an important fact and electric gates are ideal for properties on busy roads or in busy areas. Providing an effective way to prevent other motorists from using your drive to turn around or park, or to protect children and pets from passing traffic, electric gates will help to keep your home private, secure and safe.
A wide range of electric gates for residential properties are available, with options to suit different styles of home and driveway layouts. In terms of opening, options include swing gates or gates which slide open and the best type for your home will depend on a number of factors.
