Reasons an Automatic Gate is Better Than a Manual Gate

When thinking about the addition of a property gate, it’s worth your while to think of an automatic electric gate instead of a manual gate. Automatic gates offer more security and convenience. For instance, when you have an automatic gate, there is no need to get out of your car and unlock the gate to then get back in the car to drive through. With an automatic opener or a key code, you can have the doors open automatically from the car which provides you and your family with more convenience and safety.

Added Beauty

Automatic gates are very attractive. They enhance your curb appeal and thereby increase the value of your property. They catch a person’s eyes when walking by and help set the scene to the entrance of a beautiful home.

Different Styles

Automatic gates come in several styles, are made with diverse materials, and have different functionalities. This allows you to choose a door that is harmonic with the style and decor of the rest of your property. Of course, the type you get will depends on your budget.


When you have an electric gate, you don’t have to get out of the car when driving into the property. You can operate it (open or close) with a remote control, much like a garage door. Newer electric gates now also have voice sensors and keypads to open the gate. This gives your gate the ability to open faster than the average manual gate.

The Electric Gate Installation Process

Installing an automatic gate will differ in cost depending on the gate type and the installation circumstances. We can say that the biggest part of the cost is going to be the post that hold the gate in place. Sliding Gates will also require tracks and special wheels, whereas swivel gates require hinges. Again, the cost of installation will depend on the size and type of gate being installed.

    Thank you for pointing out that automatic gates can add beauty to the property and increase curb appeal since they are so attractive. My parents just recently got a dog since they were lonely after all their kids left. I think we should recommend they get a gate so their dog doesn’t get out and to add to the curb appeal if they ever want to sell.
