What Are the Benefits of Electric Gates for My London Home?

By March 21, 2017May 24th, 2019News & Communications

There are many benefits to installing electric gates, including, increased security, privacy, an improved aesthetic and lower crime rates. It’s true what they say – you can’t put a price on the safety of your family. Many people are turning to electric gates as a stylish and effective means of providing increased security for their London property. In this latest post, London Electricians takes a more in-depth look at the advantages of this addition to your home.


Safety and Security for Your Family

First and foremost, electric gates are the perfect security solution for your property, acting as a deterrent to potential burglars and thieves. After all, if you put a barrier in the way of unwelcome visitors, they are less likely to make you a target as it is more difficult to break in without being seen, thereby making your home significantly less tempting. Automated gates give you the peace of mind that your children and pets can play outside the house without the risk of running into busy roads and oncoming traffic. Furthermore, implementing an access control system to work with your electric gates will allow you to identify and speak with visitors safely from inside the property; this means you can remotely grant them entry to your premises without even having to step outside.


Privacy from Onlookers

If your London home is situated on a busy street or the main road then you may have felt uneasy at times due to a number of inquisitive people passing by. Whilst curiosity is a natural thing, having lots of people stop and stare into your property – or even perhaps try and park on your driveway – can become uncomfortable and irritating over time. Installing electric gates allows you to take back control and regain an element of privacy that you feel you may have lost due to the location and positioning of your house.


Increased Property Value

Introducing increased security measures can only result in positive outcomes for the value of your London home. It is an investment worth taking, especially if you are looking to sell your property further down the line, as electric gates are an appealing prospect to potential new owners. What’s more, you may even find that some insurance companies will reduce the premium or cost of your home insurance due to the fact that there is less chance of a break-in and, therefore, your property is less of a risk.


Great Aesthetic Value for Your Home

Electric gates come in a range of styles and designs, meaning that you choose whether to have them work seamlessly with the architectural style of your house or make them a standout feature of your property. Create the wow factor and leave a lasting impression on your guests with luxurious automated gates or go understated with a simpler and more minimalistic design – the choice really is yours.


Electric Gates = Ease of Use

Introduce ease, convenience, and security into your life with electric gates, the perfect solution for the busy Londoner in need of quick and efficient way to get onto their driveway without having to get out of the car, open the gate, get back in the car and drive through, then close the gate again. All of these steps can be bypassed simply by pressing a button on a remote; your gates will open and close automatically, undoubtedly a relief after a long day away from the house, not to mention much safer.
