By installing electric gates you are moving the first line of defence away from your front door and enhancing the security of your home and family.
Having a system that includes an intercom allows you to speak directly to the person trying to gain access into your property and then you can decide from the safety of your home if you want to allow them in.
On the older or more basic models that were offered in the past the units would come with multiple wires and would have a very limited range and many issues. AES offer systems that operate on wireless technology for easy installation and fantastic coverage.
Wireless intercom systems are offered in DECT technology, which is a longer range version of the technology found in almost all portable home phones. This system is suitable where broadband coverage is an issue and where the distance between the gate entrance and the home is within a working range of 200 meters. Up to 4 handsets can be positioned around the home so the gate visitor can be answered quickly.
GSM Intercom systems for gates allow the intercom to call your mobile phone, as well as calling your home phone, all with the added benefit of no range limits. If you have reliable and strong mobile phone coverage, then this could be the option that might best suit you. There is also a free app that can be installed on iPhone or android with many extra features.
One of the most popular options is the Wireless Gate Video intercom that operates using the home owners own Wif-Fi connection. The intercom when connected to the network can make video calls to the owners smartphone wherever they are. Thus enhancing the security of the property and giving peace of mind to the homeowner.
