Bespoke electric gate with intercom

Electric gate kits

Electric gate kits, whether they’re swing gate kits, sliding gate kits or cantilever gate kits, are a great option for both commercial and residential properties. They work by automating your premises’ existing gates so you can control when they open and close. They make excellent deterrents by imposing robust physical barriers that discourage intruders from attempting to gain unauthorised entry.

What’s more, the security offered by gates can lead to reduced insurance premiums, as the added protection for your belongings and vehicles lowers the likelihood of you needing to make any claims.

The great thing about our gate kits is their affordability. You don’t have to invest in a gate kit with all the bells and whistles immediately. With the many different brands and specifications we have, it’s easy to choose a kit that fits your requirements and budget and then gradually add other security systems, like intercom systems, to your gate to bolster it in your own time.

Lastly, automated gates can even increase the value of your home by as much as 5%, offering not only personal peace of mind but also appealing to potential buyers in the real estate market if you ever think about selling up and moving on!

Facial recognition intercoms

Another great addition to any home or business’s security system is an intercom – whether it’s a keypad and push button style or a video intercom. These intercoms allow for two-way communication with anyone at the entrance of your premises, enabling you to verify the identity of your visitors before granting them access.

At Gate Auto, we have a number of intercoms available, all at differing price options for you to select from, from basic models to advanced models like our Akuvox intercom systems.

With Akuvox’s intercom system, you can enjoy the convenience and peace of mind that comes with enhanced security and controlled access to your home or business premises. Using artificial intelligence, SIP, Android, cloud, security, and other advanced technologies, Akuvox allows you to capture and store the faces of your family, team, or visitors and send a QR code directly to outsiders to give easy access to the premises.

Barriers and bollards

Out of barriers and bollards, bollards are a universal choice for bolstering security and are a great addition to any access control system, whether for residential or commercial use. They’re beneficial for preventing vehicle theft or theft of large objects. They serve as physical barriers to control or block vehicle access to chosen sites, protecting driveways, pedestrian walkways, and assets.

Our high-quality barriers are great for enhancing your business’s security. They are ideal for protecting car parks, shopping centres, and offices. At Gate Auto, our barriers are purposely built for reliability, to prevent unauthorised access, and to regulate the flow of people entering your premises. Specifically designed for effective vehicle access control in residential areas, business parks, and pedestrian zones, they create advanced security in various environments, especially when combined with other access control measures like intercoms and CCTV.

If you’re ready to enhance your home or business’s safety and create a customised access control system for your property, whether that’s with an electric gate kit, an intercom or a combination of features, our experts at Gate Auto are here to help you.
