Why You Need an Automatic Gate Access Control System
One of the most enticing amenities available for townhome, condominium, and master-planned communities is an automatic gate. Living in a gated community provides an unrivaled degree of privacy and security. Residents look out for such amenities because they are usually accompanied by quiet streets and the luxury of never having to worry about unexpected visits.
Have you lived in a building with an unreliable gate opener? Getting delayed when you leave your building or enter can take its toll and become really frustrating. Residents shouldn’t be forced to go through such an ordeal. Or you have an automatic gat system, but it takes forever to scan your plate, or you have to get down and type a code each time you pass through. All of this just results in lousy living experiences. What you need is a reliable automatic gate operator, installed and managed by someone you can count on. Recent statistics from the U.S Census Bureau show that approximately 10.7 American homes are gated. More than half of them use integrated access control or telephone entry systems. The installation of these systems allows for a variety of access mechanisms such as key cards, key fobs, telephone entry, and a variety of other options. From a practical standpoint, it is easy to see why so many homeowners opt for an automated gated security system
When choosing the best automatic gate system for your community, it is essential to consider how your gate opens, the needs of your community, and the power source.
With the use of advanced technologies in our systems, they can now be powered by standard electrical connections or can be paired with solar panels and batteries for independent wireless connections.
If you plan on using hard-wired gate openers, you’ll need to ensure that an electrical power source is available at the location of the gate. We recommend solar-powered connections as they save cost in the long run and they are renewable. They also come in handy in remote areas with limited options for electrical power. Modern solar panels are efficient, and when paired with an array of
rechargeable batteries, they can generate enough power for an automatic gate system. While considering the power options available, it is essential you ask questions and consult a professional installer to review your need for power redundancy and the frequency with which the gates will be utilized.

Our system includes intercom entry systems, smart codes, license plate scanning, and windscreen tagging for easy and convenient access. With these systems in place, community
guests or delivery vehicles can type smart codes or request access from specific residents.
Our access control gate system comes with several safety features to protect operators. Automatic gates are heavy, and they can injure pedestrians, pets or damage other obstacles. This is why we have a stop and reverse feature installed in our gated system. The infrared beam our system uses detects obstacles and then instructs the gate to stop moving.
