So, you've opted for an automatic gate system, now you need to decide which method of access control is going to best suit your needs.
At Autogate we supply a number of different access control solutions and will be happy to advise you on the most suitable and practical way to ensure your automatic entry gates work for you.
Factors to consider are things such as gate visibility, number of access users, flexibility of entry and whether the gate is for pedestrian access or vehicle access.
You also need to think about whether you prefer a hand held remote control, keypad system, vehicle induction loops or timed entry.
For domestic properties you need to consider things such as child safety, visiting friends and family, trade deliveries and collection to ensure that your electric driveway gate is practical and functional.
For commercial or industrial entry systems you may have a different level of needs, and wish to consider additional access controls such as keypad entry systems, intercoms, car park barriers etc.
Our expert team at Autogate will be happy to discuss your bespoke requirements to ensure that your automated entry system provides you with exactly the right level of convenience and security you require.
Autogate can supply a large range of audio and video intercom systems.
These are available in a variety of finishes from brass to steel and can be connected to a dedicated control box in your home/office or interfaced with your existing telephone, including your mobile network SIM card.
Keypads are useful for multiple users as they can be programmed with individual number codes.
This also allows remote access for visitors, and keypads are easily incorporated into existing intercom systems.
A remote control enables you to open your gates from inside your car when leaving or entering using your automated gates.
Using a unique secure frequency, a remote control is an affordable and reliable method of secure access.
Time controls are multifunctional and suited for a wide range of entry points.For industrial or commercial premises a timer control can ensure that access is only available at times to suit you.
This may be for operational or security purposes. In a domestic situation having a timer control allows the gates to be opened and closed freely for deliveries (such as the postal service) at specific times of the day only.
Inductive loops or 'sensing loops' are installed under your driveway surface, and activated by a sensor when your vehicle approaches. This type of system allows gates to automatically open upon the vehicle's arrival, and saves the use of remote controls or keypad entry.
A sensing loop system/ induction loop can be operated in conjunction with a timer control for specific access, such as accommodating delivery times etc.
