Automated gates are a fantastic way to increase your privacy and security, giving you additional peace of mind that your home and loved ones are protected. Find out how automatic gates can transform how you live and give your home a brand-new aesthetic by reading this article from Brisbane & Bayside Garage Doors. 

The Many Benefits of Automated Gates 

Everyone enjoys their privacy, especially within their family home. An automated driveway gate is a great way of protecting your privacy against intruders and onlookers. With automated gates, you can guard your property and control who enters and exits at all times. 

You will be in control of the boundaries for your pets and children, protecting them from busy roads and any other danger that waits on the other side of your fence. You’ll even diminish the possibility of having people use your driveway as a place to turn around. Automatic gates keep all unauthorised vehicles far away from your property. 

Make Your Life More Convenient 

Automatic gates give you the convenience of not having to physically open the gate each and every time you come home. Many people end up leaving their gates wide open because of this inconvenience, putting their safety and security at risk. Electric gates can be controlled with a remote control, a keypad, and even high-tech sensors.  

Increase the Value of Your Home 

Installing an automatic gate may save you money in the long run by increasing the selling price of your home and making it more attractive to potential buyers. Your insurance company may also see automatic gates as added protection for your home, resulting in a great discount.  

Sliding vs. Swing Gates – Which One Is Right For You? 

There are advantages to both styles. Swing gates don’t require any additional side space to slide back into, and they don’t require concrete flooring as sliding gates do. In many occasions, our team can add automation to your existing swing gates and save you the cost of buying a whole new system. 

Sliding gates take up minimal room on the driveway because they slide back along the fence line. Sliding gates are also extremely secure because they cannot be forced open, and they aren’t affected by the elements as easily as swing gates.  

Whichever style you choose will depend on your property and preferences.
