Electric gates help make your home more secure. They provide a physical barrier as well as acting as a deterrent to opportunistic thieves. 


If your property is in an area with a high crime rate, or you have particular concerns about personal and property security, it’s possible to make your gates even more secure. 


All automated gate are operated by automatic gate openers for both security and convenience. As well as saving both time and effort, they also ensure your gates are closed behind you when you leave. 



How secure are automatic gates and what can you do to make them even safer?


Automatic gates provide security but are not completely foolproof. Even a swing gate with magnetic locks at the opening edges could theoretically be breached by someone ramming them in a vehicle driven at high speed.


If closed gates are fully boarded, then they present a degree of privacy because nobody can see through them. They form part of a physical boundary as an extension to any walls or hedges at the perimeter of your property.


To help you increase security, gates can be used with an access control system.  These can range from a keypad up to a full video intercom system.


At Linkcare, we stock an extensive range of access control systems that both improve security and provide additional convenience.

AES Intercom System


A highly effective access control intercom is the AES Slim CL-AS wired stainless steel audio intercom kit


This stylish, sleek access control system includes a speech panel at the gate and a handset in black or white inside your home.  This is an excellent, entry-level intercom that can increase home security and give the homeowner more control over access to their property. 


An example that incorporates video is the AES 705 DECT 2.4G wireless video intercom which is ideal for multi-occupancy residences such as apartments.

It comes with four call buttons, all of which communicate with a different handset. This system allows you to see who is at our gates before you let them in, giving everyone at the address greater confidence in their communal security.


A professional installer can advise you on security measures


One of the great advantages of using the services of professional gate installers is that they can provide insight on different aspects of gate installation. 


They will be able to advise which security measures might be best for your property and then ensure that they are correctly installed. 


Linkcare uses a network of experienced gate installers, all of whom are initially assessed and then continually vetted to ensure their skills are up to date.
