One of the most convenient and functional advancements for automatic gates has been the development of automated gate controls. Used for both residential or commercial automatic gates offer a slew of benefits such as enhancing security, convenience, and operational efficiency. 

Perhaps the biggest advantage of automated gate controls is a heightened level of security. With security features such as cameras, keypads, card readers, biometric scanners, remote control access, and more, technology ensures that only authorized individuals can enter the premises.

In addition to offering more security, automated gate controls are extremely convenient. For residential properties, automated gates provide homeowners the ease of opening and closing their gates without leaving their vehicles—ideal for inclement New England weather or late-night arrivals. 

In commercial and industrial settings, automated gates provide efficiency when it comes to managing the  flow of traffic and reducing congestion, which is important for businesses that require the smooth and rapid movement of goods and personnel. Plus, most automated gate systems can be programmed to operate on schedules, ensuring gates are locked and unlocked at specific times.

From an operational perspective, automated gates can be integrated with surveillance cameras and alarm systems, resulting in a comprehensive security network that monitors and records all entry and exit activities. Additionally, automated gate controls can be accessed remotely via smartphones or computers, which allow for real-time management of gate operations.
