    Can existing manual gates be automated?

    Generally they can be automated but there will be some exceptions. Much will depend on the layout of the overall site and the state of repair of the existing gates, the gate posts, the gate hinges and the gate leaf alignment. Learn More

    I have an inclined driveway – does this mean I cannot install an electric gate?

    No.  Obviously an inclined driveway can stop gates opening but sometimes there it is possible to install a swing gate that opens away from the property.  However, it may be possible to install swing gates that open away from the property although you will need to ensure that the gates do not obstruct the public highway.

    What happens in the event of a power failure?

    All quality installations will provide home owners with manual release keys and instructions on how to release the automation system in the event of a power failure.  Some electric gate systems also come with the option of a battery backup.  However, all systems come with a manual release facility that can be used in the event of a power failure.

    How will I know that there are people at the gate when it is closed?

    Almost every electric gate system has an intercom, either audio or audio and video, which enables people at the gate to contact the home owner.  The intercom will either be hardwired between the gate and the house or will be wireless with either a DECT telephone system or a GSM.

    How do visitors enter the premises when no-one is in the house?

    In general, they don’t – gates are put in place to provide perimeter security.  However, there are a range of intercom systems that will dial a mobile number when the intercom button is pressed at the gate and the system can be programmed so that the owner of the mobile phone, once he or she knows who wants to get in, can press a number on their mobile phone which will open the gate – either partially to allow pedestrian access or fully to let a vehicle enter the property.  The mobile phone user could be on the other side of the world but the technology still enables them to control the home entrance system.

    BFT offer a range of gate automation solutions created to effectively address any situation and need. No matter your requirements, a professional installer will be able to advise you on the possibilities and associated costs for your particular home project.
