Your home is your sanctuary and as a result, you will have invested a lot of time, love and money into making it a wonderful place for you and possibly your family to live. Investing in electric gates for your home can have many benefits, not just to the security you will bring to your home, but also the aesthetic and value price overall of the property. It doesn’t matter if you have plans to put your house on the market or not: investing in electric gates now will mean should you one day decide to, the value of your property will be boosted by your earlier investment. Below we’ve highlighted some of the key benefits of investing in electric gates for your home.


The first and probably most obvious benefit of investing in electric gates is that you will have increased the security around your wonderful home. Electric security gates are one of the best deterrents you can invest in to discourage thieves and vandals from attacking your home. It also improves the security of your car/s and gives your friends, family and pets a safe space to play and run around in without concerns for outside traffic or strangers. You can also ensure that the only people entering your property are people you’re happy to see. You can give friends and family security key access to open the gates or install an intercom, which allows you to speak to everyone before the gates are opened.

Increased the value

Another benefit of investing in security gates is that they will add value to your property should you ever decide you want to sell. Prospective buyers have high standards when looking at properties and want to feel their investment is matched by what they will receive from their new property. An added bonus of your property over another could well be the electric gates you’ve invested in, which will offer the new owners the same security and benefits you have enjoyed.


Unlike manual gates, electric gates can be controlled remotely from inside the comfort of your home. If someone has visited your home and forgotten to close the gate, you can close the gate yourself after they’ve left without having to leave the house. If you know you’re going to have a lot of people visiting on a certain day – perhaps you’re having a party – you can leave your gates blocked open to allow several people to enter your property before remotely closing and locking the gates again. Also, when you’re driving you don’t have to get out of your car to open or close your gates behind you, as you can control all of this from a simple fob button within the comfort of your car. This is especially ideal if it’s raining!

Block solicitations

One of the most annoying parts of being a homeowner is the unwanted sales visits, politicians, or people with religious agendas knocking at your door. Even with a ‘no unsolicited visits’ sign, most people who want to talk to you are undeterred from knocking and pushing their conversation on you. As anyone who’s been caught out by this knows, once you’re in that conversation, getting out of it can prove pretty difficult.
