Domestic Gate Automation

There are different ways to automate gates and a great deal of this depends on the style of gate itself in addition to the location of the gate.  Some of the options and explanations of different install options can be found below as well as the impact that safety can have visually on a gate. 

Choices of semi automatic gate operation or a fully automatic gate are available.  An example of a semi automatic gate would be a gate that operates when a button is pushed sending a signal to open or close the gate.  A fully automatic gate would be activated by a device.  This device could be some form of intercom or radio controlled device as examples.  The gate would then open and close within a specific set time.
