Intelligent Protection

Automated driveway gates add a physical barrier that makes your home look luxurious while deterring potential criminals. Modern gate automation technology adds incredible convenience to your daily lifestyle, as well. As you reverse down your driveway to head into work for the day, motion sensors will signal to the gate to open. As you drive away, the gate will close. By incorporating the Control4 DS2 video entry system, you’ll have a gate automation system that is intelligent enough to know which vehicles are and are not allowed on your property, so there’s no need to worry about unapproved cars gaining access to your estate.

Automated gates tie into your new or existing security system, too. In addition to physical protection, you can see, hear, and speak to anyone approaching the gate by foot or vehicle. View surveillance footage using your smartphone or a control system touch screen, open the gate remotely for friends that are visiting, or issue unique user keypad codes for the dogwalker for a layer of convenience you couldn’t imagine without automation!

Routine Gate Maintenance

Your gate offers you and your family protection, but are you protecting your gate? That may seem like a silly question, but consider this: gates withstand Mother Nature year-round and have several moving parts that need regular maintenance to ensure proper operation.

Regularly scheduled visits from the professionals at T-N-G Services ensure your automation software is up-to-date, intercom systems and key fobs are appropriately connected, plus fully maintain the gate’s functionality. Our team will clean and lubricate all moving parts, check hinge alignment, and remove insects and animal nests. Over time, dust, dirt, and other debris accumulate on critical moving parts, and our team cleans everything without tarnishing decorative finishes. Preventative measures like this help avoid major disruption of gate operation in the future.
