What are the benefits of installing electric gates at your Gloucester home?
The main thing that all homeowners strive for is the feeling of safety in their own home. One of the most sure-fire ways to attain this feeling is through the installation of electric gates on the premises. Whether it’s primarily for keeping unwanted visitors out, keeping vulnerable inhabitants in, or just for pure convenience, the electric gate has a lot to offer your home. But what is it exactly that makes a set of electric gates such a great benefit to your property?
Beef up your home security
Possibly the greatest benefit to investing in electric gates on your property is the increase in security for your home. You can rest assured knowing that no one will be entering onto your property without your say so. Once your gates are closed their electric locks will ensure that only people with a remote or security key will be able to come and go.
Aside from the physical security provided by the tall electric gates, they also act as a deterrent from potential criminals.
Because of the increased tangible security that they offer, electric gates have been known to have the effect of lowering insurance premiums. Insurance companies know that electric gates act as a deterrent to criminals, thus clients with them will be less likely to need to make a claim.
Make your property safer
As well as making sure no one you don’t want at your property can get in, the opposite is also true. Electric gates will make your property safer by ensuring that your pets and young children can be kept in. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that if your young child is playing outside, there will be no risk of them absent-mindedly running out into the road.
Electric gates also make your property safer for your pets. Excitable dogs won’t be able to escape the property chasing after a ball or squirrel with the gates locked tight in front of them.
One of the biggest problems with a normal set of gates is the fact that you have to open them manually. You don’t want to have to get out of your car in the pouring rain to open your gate when you get home from work. That’s where electric gates are at their most convenient. Simply push the button on your gate’s remote from the safety of your vehicle and drive on into your property with minimal hassle.
Electric gates also alleviate the worry of potentially forgetting to lock them, as once they are closed they will lock automatically in place.
Increase property value
Should you ever want to sell your home, getting electric gates installed will improve the value of your property? Automated gates can add up to 5% to the value of a property as they reassure potential buyers that their future home will be safe and secure.
Alongside all the technical benefits of installing electric gates on your property, there is also the aesthetic appeal to consider. Electric gates can really elevate the look of a property. Whether it’s the grandeur of ornate metal or the chic modernism of wooden electric gates, getting these installed will be a sure-fire way of wowing your neighbours.
