Gate automation systems provide another level of security to buildings, parking structures, and secure sites by controlling access to a facility. Gates usually target vehicles and require drivers to provide electronic or confidential identification (such as a PIN or access number) to enter a facility. They protect employees, property, inventory, and business operations
Employees who park in office garages often report feeling safer when there is automated access. Garages with restricted access experience less vandalism than open, unprotected garages. Automated gates also record the number of vehicles that enter a facility and can use this information to ensure that all vehicles have left at the end of the workday. At the gate is also a great place to place video surveillance camera systems to monitor the vehicles that come and go.
Tri-City Alarm can install automated gates in several styles. Many garages have an automated arm that regulates traffic entering and exiting. Other security gates feature sliding doors that provide a larger barrier and present more of a deterrent to unauthorized persons.
Gates can be activated via keypad or smartcard (inserted into a recording device or waved before an infrared camera) and record vehicle arrival and departure times as well. Many businesses put a surveillance camera at security gates as well.
