This can get involved as you need to take into account quite a few factors, our best advice is to start off and keep it simple!
Identify Primary, Secondary and Other or Unexpected Users.
Your new gate can be viewed as your front door – who do you want to let in – who do you want to keep out – how do you want allow them in and let them out again.
Primary Users – You, your family, close friends and relatives.
Suggestion – issue primary users with remote control hand transmitter – this activates gates from a vehicle or on foot.
Install a Code pad – issue a secure pin number to trusted persons
Secondary Users – Close neighbors, Postman, Wheelie bin collection, regular or arranged deliveries
For less secure situations the gates can be held open on a ‘timed’ basis during key periods in daylight hours and timed to close in the evening or nighttime.
Install a Intercom with or without Code pad– an intercom (voice only or voice and vision) will allow you to identify a person before deciding whether or not to let them in – issue pin number to trusted persons – this can be changed from time to time for security.
Other or Unexpected Users – Unexpected visitors – wanted or unwanted.
As above, although you may wish not to give out the pin number for the code pad.
