Add another feature to your gate with an intercom! An intercom is a great way to add additional gate security and to also know who is by your property. Just as there are several options of gates to choose from, there are also several different types of intercom services to choose from. Below are a few different types you can install.
If you have a home gate, you may look into a residential intercom system. This type of system works if someone looking to enter your property pulls up to your gate, they would hit a button that allows them to be connected with someone inside. Someone inside the property would respond by refusing entry or by entering a code that allows that individuals to come in. You can also program it to where the person can enter a code on their own on some models.
Common in both residential and commercial properties, the programmable intercom system has a keypad outside the entrance. This type of system has a code that is entered before the person will be allowed access inside the property. This type of system allows you to change the codes as frequently as you see fit.
Larger building and apartment complexes typically use the auto dialer system for their gate. This system is similar to the intercom system because it dials the residence you are visiting so they can allow you entry onto the premises.
Gates are very successful at keeping unwanted visitors out, but intercom systems allow you full control on who enters and exits your property. Call OC Gates today to learn more about gates and intercom systems!
