Driveway Gate Openers & Features

New Gate Installation Experts Costa MesaOne of the main reasons homeowners chose to install a driveway gate opener is for the convenience, and security. Having a garage door usually makes individuals feel a little safer. An automatic gate typically comes with a keypad and an opener. Each opener comes with a certain box that is installed near the garage or gate it is synced up to. The keypad typically is programmed with a four digit code which allows you to open the door from it. Most come with two gate (or garage) remotes that open it, adding to the convenience of the gate, or garage.

Installing an automatic gate and opener also increases the value of your home. Here are a few of its features below:

  • Easy sliding or swing motion gate all at the touch of your remote button or keypad entry
  • Automatic driveway gates feature anti-crushing and infra-red beam protectors. They are built with sensors that prevent the door from closing on a person or item that might be under the door when it is closing.
  • Most automatic garage door or gate door openers feature setting that allow you to only open the gate part-way if someone needs to slip in or out real quick!
  • There is typically a button near the door in the garage that leads to your house where you can simply touch that to open it if the driver outside forgot his or her remote and doesn’t want to get out to enter the code on the keypad.
  • Many automated driveway gate operators come with backup batteries, and some even have solar panels. This means that if there is a power failure, your driveway gate will still be able to function normally.

How Automatic Gate Installation Can Help Secure Your Home

Electric gates are one of the best ways to secure your home, and automatic gates can be installed for nearly any size property. A well-installed security gate is the first level of home safety. As we all know, crimes on residential property and home invasion are a problem in the Orange County area and a security gate will improve the safety of your home and family. Orange County Garage Doors and Gates takes your family’s safety seriously when we install any new electronic security gate.

An electronic gate installation places a barrier between your home and the world around you. It gives you peace of mind when you are away from home or not at home with your family. Criminals want to get as much as they can in the shortest amount of time and, of course, they can’t gain easy or quick access to your property if you have a properly installed security gate. Also, a gate will protect your children and pets when they want to play outside.

Orange County Garage Doors and Gates offer two ways to enter your home through your gate safely. You may use an automatic gate opener that senses when your vehicle enters the gate area. You may also opt for a card-entry system which allows only those with a card to enter. Another security feature is called “Photo Eyes” which works as an infrared sensor that will close or stop a gate from opening when necessary.

There are several different materials your gate can be made of, but wrought iron provides the strongest and most secure material for your security or driveway gate. A wrought iron gate doesn’t only provide security, it can also be customized to match your personal style.

An electronic security gate does add value to your property. Not only does it provide a look of beauty and distinction, the added safety factor is appealing to a potential home buyer.
