8 Benefits of an Automatic Gate Opener

You may be wondering, is an automatic gate opener worth my time, effort, and money? Here are just a few advantages we, at Ghost Controls put together to help you make your decision.

1. Safety

One of the most important aspects of a gate for your home is how effective it is at keeping unwanted visitors out. An automatic gate gives you the ability to specifically decide who can enter your property and when, without the need to have multiple copies of keys floating around.

2. Cost

Many people considering making the switch to an automatic gate, are concerned that it is out of their price range. Most automatic gates on the market can be found for less than $1,000. At Ghost Controls, we even offer an automatic gate system for as low as $499. When compared to other forms of security, especially ones with recurring monthly plans, this is a very cost-efficient strategy to security.

3. Low Maintenance Security

Having a home security system is one thing, but preventing specific cars from entering your property is a job fit for either a security guard, or an automatic gate. Rather than going through the ridiculous hassle of hiring a security guard, using an automatic gate opener can be about as simple and low maintenance as security can get.

4. Aesthetics

An automated driveway gate is a great way to decorate your home, as there is something unmistakably aesthetic about it. Whether it is placed at the front or back entrance to your home, you will be able to greet guests in style.

5. Privacy

Having the ability to limit access to your property creates a sense of privacy that is otherwise difficult to achieve. Ghost Controls automatic gates even have VacationMode™ and PartyMode® functionality, that allows you to limit all access, or open access to your gate depending on the circumstance.

6. Ability to Customize

One of the best parts of owning your own automatic gate opener is the ability to customize it. Our gate openers are compatible with virtually all kinds of gates available. From wood to iron, you can use a gate that matches best with your home’s style.

7. Convenience

The convenience of not having to manually get out of your car to open your gate should speak for itself. If you have ever had to manually open a gate in the rain, then we are sure you can agree.

8. Home Value

When considering any addition to your home, an important question to ask is whether it will benefit your home’s value. Adding an automatic gate has proven to not only increase property value, but also makes the property easier to sell. You may even be able to receive a discount to your homeowner’s insurance because gated systems are a deterrent to thieves.
