Automation of gates are no longer just a luxury, in the high-risk environment of today they eliminate a period of vulnerability when a person has to get out of a vehicle to open his gate. A full range of gate motors make any gate type automatable, from swing gates to sliding gates. Choosing the correct motor is important as different gates and areas of operation have very different needs, and the right model makes all the difference.
As with gate motors garage motors also eliminate a period of vulnerability, especially if the door faces onto a public area. Built-in lights help to illuminate surroundings to check for possible dangers, but also allow the persons in the vehicle to safely disembark and unload the vehicle. Once again a variety of doors can be automated, from rolling doors to sectioned sliding doors. A good installation is essential, so make sure your installer fits the motor properly to ensure hassle free operation.
Intercoms provide a means of identifying visitors at your premises without having to remove any barriers between you and them. While audio devices (such as phones) allow for good interaction, adding video allows the user to gauge the situation outside visually as well, being able to check the circumstances as well as the visitor. Both wired and wireless systems are available. Wired systems are more labour intensive to install, but the direct power supply ensures lower operational costs and higher reliability. Wireless systems on the other hand are more flexible.
Most gate and garage motors will be fitted with some kind of Transmitter and Receiver to enable remote operations, but these are not the only devices that can be operated as such. Using receivers with relays enable almost any device to be operated remotely.
BM Solutions will save you the hassle of using different remotes for different products.
