Getting things automated doesn’t mean that we’re all being lazy, but an automated gate or ‘autogate’ is a worthy investment that can keep your house secure and help maintain your family’s privacy. There are different types of autogate designs and features to suit every home – whether you live in a terrace house, bungalow, semi-D or a townhouse, you can find something to fit your need from an authorised autogate supplier.
Still not sure? Here are 3 top reasons why it’s a good idea to get your home an autogate:
#1. For Your Safety!
Prevention is always better than cure. Anyone can be a target for robbery, snatch theft and break-ins.
However, having a secure autogate can be your home’s first line of security and deter robbers from attacking your home – between a house that has an autogate and another that doesn’t, who do you think the robber would see as an easier target? It would probably be the house without an autogate.
It also keeps your children and pets from getting out of the house by accident to chase fetch a ball and risk them wandering off onto the streets.
When considering what type of autogate to choose, find out from the contractor or autogate supplier about the gate’s security features – for example, if the gate works with irreversible geared motors or maglocks. Instead of just installing a motor to convert your manual gate, it’s worth investment a bit more into getting a proper autogate with security features that can give you a peace of mind when you’re at home or away.
Plus, having the ability to remotely open and close your gate is also much more convenient and safer to do from inside your house or car.
#2. Convenient & Saves Time
Tick tock tick tock goes the clock, every second counts! Especially when you’re in a rush to get to work or ferry the kids off to school. Getting in and out of the car to open the gate, close the gate and get your lock on can take up those precious minutes you want to save – and oh, this is on a good day, what happens when if it decides to rain on that day?
Many homeowners just can’t be bothered to deal with this hassle and end up just leaving their front gate wide open when they go out. We can’t imagine this being safe at all for your home.
Automatic gates are remotely controlled so it makes life a whole lot better when you’re coming in and going out of the house. No longer do you need to worry about getting out of the car when it’s raining, which can be very unpredictable in Malaysia.
Most autogate remotes can be activated from up to 15-20 metres away, and you can request for additional remotes from your autogate supplier or installer for each of your family members.
#3. Increase Privacy & Prevent Unwanted Company
A manual gate can get ‘accidentally’ unlocked and unsolicited salesman, stray animals and nosy neighbours can find their way to your front door. They probably won’t leave until you show up!
With an automatic gate standing in their way, you don’t have to worry about anyone wandering into your property or strays damaging your front garden. (If they’re not getting the message, hang a sign on your gate that says “NO TRESPASSING”)
For homeowners living in the city and busy areas, you can choose an autogate design and couple it with appropriate fencing that block out the view into your home from the outside.
