Residential – Automated Gates

Residential - Automated Gates

An example of access control is the automated gate for a residential gated community that will usually have one side for residents and one side for guests.

The resident side may open automatically when the system detects a special sticker or access card inside the vehicle. That’s called a proximity reader. On the guest side you may have a keypad where your guests would enter a code that will either open the gate or dial the homeowner to have them send a code to the gate.

Similarly, gates may be automated for single family residences for the driveway or pedestrian entry gates. Access to the property can be given through card or fob readers for the property owners and their families and domestic staff. Guest access can be granted through one-time-use codes or by the owner when called by the guest via an intercom or videocom at the point of entry.
