There’s no reason why home
automation needs to stop at the front
door. Automated gates, such as those
produced by Gate Express, are one
of the most practical applications
of automated systems for the home.
Security is the most obvious benefit
- closed gates deter intruders and
automatic gates and automated access
control systems allow the homeowner
to see or talk to callers prior to
letting them onto the property.
The benefits of the convenience and
style of an automated gate system
are enhanced by the advantages of
providing a safe environment, protecting
children and pets from straying from
the property. Gate access controls
can be integrated with many other
home automation systems.
For convenience, or to make sure
that there are no prowlers, the gate's
remote control can also turn on security
lights as well as activating automatic
garage doors. Video systems can be
integrated with other security systems
and provide a record of who has called
at the gate, even if they didn’t
enter the property.
Additionally, the intercom can divert
to another phone, or to a mobile,
so callers do not know if the homeowner
is not there.
