Driveway Gate Backup Power Supply
With High-security driveway gates, its very important to have a backup power supply to ensure they are kept operational in the event of a power outage. If the driveway gate can be opened manually when not powered, this can cause a weak link in your driveway gates security. There are a range of alternatives to overcome this type of difficulty. We recommend that you install a backup battery to the driveway gate or, where possible, a solar panel as your secondary power source. Alternatively, you could decide to install a solar panel as your primary power source and have a battery and electric grid feed as secondary power sources.
Driveway Gate Access Coded Control
The easiest way to achieve this type of control is to integrate a keypad access box into your driveway gate system. With this type of approach you can give the code to your guests, allowing only them to gain access. Another approach is to install a remote access system, whereby the driveway gate only opens by remote control. The downside to this approach is that if anyone is able to obtain or steal your remote they will be able to gain unauthorized access. With all of these options, you can also add an intercom system to increase the level of overall security.
Driveway Gates With Steel Reinforcement
A really strong gate can provide the highest level of security with steel reinforcements. This will ensure that your gate is not breached if a vehicle attempts to drive through your gate when it is closed. This type of breach, once rare, has become more prevalent in recent years. A gate that’s been designed with reinforced steel will be sure to stop this type of attack dead in its tracks and deny any penetration of your steel reinforcement security gates.
