There are many ways to transform your home into the dream residence that you have always wanted. For many, this revolves around splashing a fresh coat of paint on the walls, buying new furniture or working on the landscaping outside. However, all these efforts may be at peril if your most important fixture—your gate—is not worked on. For contemporary homes today, an automatic gate is the ultimate final piece to add to your residence. Find out why.
By having an automatic gate secure your home, you drastically reduce chances of break-ins and burglaries. Automatic gates are operated using remote gate-openers, similar to those used on garage doors. Traditional methods of picking locks will therefore not apply and anyone without one of these keys will not access your home. In addition, automatic gates eliminate the danger you’re exposed to every day when you step out of your car to unlock your gate. When at home, enjoy communicating with any incoming visitors through an intercom or videocom before remotely unlocking your gate.
Convenience at your fingertips
It’s never fun having to exit your vehicle, open the gate and then get back into your car to drive through and exit the car again to lock the gate behind. This is a laborious exercise that owners of traditional gates have to endure every day. At best, one has to drag someone along to lock up behind them. With an automatic gate, one has the convenience of operating the gate single-handedly, and all with the push of a button.
For one, this saves valuable time, whether you’re taking kids to school or rushing for an important meeting. Two, the convenience of having to remain in your car protects you from the weather elements such as snow, rain, dust or the scorching sun, meaning you get to arrive at your destination the same way you left the house.
Last but not least, it’s undeniable that having an automatic gate elevates one’s home in terms of prestige. The improved functionality and security will make your life easier, increase your home’s value and make you the envy of your guests. After all, not everyone on your street has an automatic gate.
Automatic gates, like those installed by AGM Automation, can be manufactured in different technologies to suit your personal tastes, thereby complimenting your home even further. There are automatic sliding gates as well as swinging models. When it comes to material, you can opt for wood, iron or a fusion of the two. Needless to say, the design models are endless and will leave you spoilt for choice.Read More
