WHAT IS A GATE MOTOR
This is the backbone of an electric gate. Gate motors are installed onto gates which makes the gate operate automatically. Depending on the size of gate, different motors are required. In order for an electric gate to operate with a motor, the motor initiates the opening of the gate using a remote control, optical scanner or other device signals to the gate.
WHAT ARE THE REASONS OF INSTALLING A GATE MOTOR
That would be for security and for the comfort of not having to get out of your car to physically and manually open the gate. That is an important feature to take into consideration, safety, the safety of you and your loved ones. Most of the high jacking takes places, during the time people need to get out and open their gates. With a gate motor installed, the risks of being high jacked are less risky. With a gate motor installed, you are can assess the situation of being followed or check the surrounding area before entering your home. Should you find that you are being followed or are in danger, you can quickly open and drive in and then shut your gate without having to even come out of the car. The modern gate motors now come with battery back systems for those bad days of low shedding or power cuts, that way you still be safe from highjackers.
