Types of Gate Automation Kits

11/17/2013 Back To Blog

If you are considering installing residential gate openers then you may not need to replace your existing wooden or wrought iron gates. Automation kits are available which can be integrated into your existing system. Gates Santa Monica advises that there several varieties of kits, so you should consider the requirements of your home to ensure that you select the product which is best suited to your needs.

Automation kits allow the homeowner to control the opening and closing of the gate through an intercom installation or gate remote. This can boost the security of your home while adding the convenience of being able to control the gates without leaving your vehicle.
The majority of kits can be divided into three types:

Above Ground:

These models can be adapted to suit the individual requirements of your driveway and barrier. They are popular with homeowners living on busy roadways which allow swift opening to allow quick turning into the driveway.

Underground:

These are durable, reliable and long lasting kits which have been designed to perform well even in damp conditions. They are a popular choice as they can be used on any type of barrier in any type of home or business.

Sliding:

These types of kits are ideal for homes with limited space on the driveway which cannot allow clearance for swinging gates. They can also be installed on driveways which are not completely level, as they can operate even on steeper angles. The barrier movement is completed through sliding gate wheels on a fixed track.

There is also a vast choice in the sophistication of the kit. Your selection may be determined by your budget, since more sophisticated kits tend to be more costly. Some models are available with additional safety and security features such as vehicle recognition, security cameras and additional safety sensors.

It is worth taking a little time to assess the needs of your home and determine a product which is best suited to meet those requirements. This will ensure that you are satisfied with the kit in the short and longer term.
