Your home’s gate is a beautiful addition to your property that also enhances your overall security. In order to complete your fence’s ability to protect your home from intruders, you need to include a gate. However, a gate can create a whole host of inconveniences and outright difficulties for your life. This is where an access panel will come in.
Let’s take a look at how access panels are designed to make your life easier.
You can get through your gate a lot easier
Access panels make getting through your gate a snap. Unlike typical gate access systems, which require you to fumble with keys, latches and locks, access panels allow you to breeze right through by doing nothing more than entering in a passcode; after this, your gate’s operating system automatically opens your gate up for you.
This is an especially important benefit to have if your fence’s gate is enclosing a driveway (you don’t want to have to get out of your car, unlock the gate and drag it open every single time you drive up to your home).
You can see what is going on from afar
With many types of gate access panels, you can see exactly what is going on at your gate without guessing or trying to peer out from your home. Instead, you can simply combine an access panel with a security camera; with the right technology, you can even monitor everything that is happening at your gate while you are far away from home.
You will never forget to lock your gate
Some days, you can get in a hurry and that can’t always be helped. When in a rush, you usually forget to do things — like properly close and lock your gate.
This presents a serious security risk for your home, because your gate’s ability to keep intruders out is effectively nullified when it is wide open or unlocked. Having an access panel, on the other hand, will make sure that you never have this problem, because they are designed to automatically activate to close your gate after you leave.
You can communicate with visitors at your gate
When someone comes to your gate, you should be able to communicate with them in order to
- Determine who they are
- Give them instructions or ask questions and
- Provide them with access to your home without having to go all the way out to your gate.
An access panel is the only gate technology that allows you to have control like this. This is especially handy if you live on a large property and don’t have the time or energy to walk all the way to the gate to unlock it.
You won’t have to add another key to your key chain
Although it starts out just holding your home and car keys, you have likely added several random keys and ornaments to your key chain over the years. The last thing that you want to do is add any more bulk to it. If you have a gate with a lock and key access point, then you have no choice but to do so. Having an access panel, on the other hand, has the opposite requirement. Because access panels only require a code, the need to add another key to your key chain never presents itself.
Your access panel will be an invaluable part of your home fencing system
As you can see, an access panel is a must to optimize the security of your home without inconveniencing yourself in the process. It will, indeed, make your life easier.
