Most driveway gates and security gates can be either manual or automatic. Manual gates require someone to physically open them and often come with intercom systems for communication with people in the house. Automatic systems can be opened with a remote control, a keypad or voice and sensor recognition. There is usually an intercom associated with an automatic system as well. Security gates can be designed to either swing open or slide open, but sliding doors are typically more secure. Gates, like fences can be made of wood, vinyl, iron, steel or aluminum and can be made to exactly match a fence or have a unique design that complements the fence.
Security Gate CostsAverage costs can vary widely depending on the design of the fence and the materials used. A simple chain link security gate that matches the customer's fence will be one price while an ornately decorated, hand carved wooden fence will cost significantly more. Savings are realized with the installation of driveway and security gates because homeowner's insurance premiums are often lowered due to the presence of the gate and fence. A sturdy driveway gate also deters criminals and tends to increase the property value. In general, the manual gates are the least expensive to install followed by automatic gates which have added costs of the remote, keypads and security cameras.
