Driveway gates are a great addition to any property. They are aesthetically appealing, provide added security, add value to your home, and so much more.

A driveway gate serves as a barrier between your home and the outside world. Peeping toms and robbers will have to go that extra mile to even get close to your home. More often than not, they won’t even be able to reach the front door.

Unwanted Vehicles

We have all had cars use our driveway to turn around or sometimes even to park when our neighbors are having a party. Your driveway is your property. No one else should have access to it. Driveway gates will prevent these two situations from happening.

Regal Look

Driveway gates can give your property that regal look. Have you ever been to The Palace of Versailles in Paris, France? This palace is home to one of the world’s most beautiful gates. Driveway gates can be as ornate or as simple as you would like.

Child Protection

Now your children and pets have a safe front yard to play in. Gates do not obstruct the view of the outside world. It simply serves as a way to keep your loved ones from wandering.

Operational Safety

Automated driveway gates either slide or swing open in response to a button being pushed. The technology is very safe if your car is the right distance away from the gate. Most gates come with a sensor to prevent any contact with a vehicle or person. Some options come with infrared beams that are motion sensitive.

Operational Settings

Many driveway gates come with several opening settings. If you want to let someone on foot in, you can open in slightly. If you want to let a car in, you can open it fully.

Security Keypad

Not all driveway gates come with a keypad, but it may be a good idea. Keypads provide convenience to the homeowner. You can simply tell a friend or family member the keypad code and they can enter upon their arrival without having to call you for help. In addition to keypads, you can install an intercom system and even a video camera.

Driveway gates have endless benefits. They give homeowners peace of mind and turn many heads because of their grandeur. If you are considering a driveway gate, they are well worth the investment when constructed properly.
