We are able to help with all aspects of the installation of your driveway gates.
Running the power cables to the gate. If you already have your driveway surface laid then the wiring will need to be run above ground. This will usually mean that cable will need to be run around the perimeter of your driveway. If you are able to install the gate first before surfacing then this will be advisable as this will enable you hide the wiring. Whether the cable is run above or below ground the wire will be armoured cable, which it coated in a thick plastic for protection.
If you are going to use your own electrician to run power to the gates we are happy to talk to them about our requirements.
Access, Remotes and Intercom Systems
Access systems are highly customisable. Here are a few considerations to help your think about your requirements.
One of the first things to consider is whether you will need a side access pedestrian gate. When you install a driveway gate most property owners require faster means of access through a pedestrian gate. This will reduce the wait time for the pedestrian to access the property and the smaller pedestrian gates close more quickly increasing security.
Will you require in Car Access for visitors? If you envisage visitors to the property wishing to dial the intercom system with out leaving their car then please specific this requirement. A post an intercom system can be fitted.
How Visitors leave the premises?
For Pedestrians will you want them to be able to push to exit button or would you want them to enter a code into a key pad. To maintain security a push to exit button will wither have to be set back from the gate or shrouded in some way.
Will visitors by car have to have the gate opened for them from the main intercom or your remote or would you want them to be able to leave by of their own accord whilst still the in the car? Please specify your requirements.

The exciting new technology in gate access systems right now it the ability to open your gates with the use of your mobile phone. This has the benefit of allowing you to open your gates before you reach them. This is a major benefit to those who live on busy roads and do not wish to hold up traffic.
The Technology can also be used to grant access to people wishing to enter the property. This has two benefits. First it means that you will not have to go to a wall mounted intercom system which is usually located near the street door. Secondly if you no one is at home to grant access the system can be set to call your phone and you can decide whether to grant access. The person standing at your gate will speak into the intercom and you will hear via your mobile phone. If you have a Video Intercom installed you will be able to see them via face time.
GSM systems can be run along side wall mounted intercom system which means that you will still have the option of allowing access via a fixed point in your home. Which is convenient should you mobile be on charge in another room or currently not available.
Please note if you do decide to go with a GSM system they will require a SIM Card which will mean a small monthly charge which will go to the network provider.
