Gate Access Systems Accessories
Gate access systems use a variety of methods to control the flow of traffic; the most popular types involve the use of an electronic gate keypad. The type that is probably most familiar uses a keypad with 10 numbers, plus an asterisk and pound sign. These sometimes include an intercom, and both wired and wireless styles are available. Other keypad systems have only one or two buttons, such as a "push to exit" button or a single button to open or close the gates, such as some types of gate transmitters.
An automatic gate intercom helps ensure that the operator knows who is at the gate prior to opening it. An outdoor intercom, with or without a keypad, is mounted at the gate, and those who wish access must first "talk" to an operator who can operate the gate remotely. An electronic gate receiver can be used for a variety of access applications. These are commonly used for parking facilities, industrial sites and gated communities. Most models can detect obstacles and pause operations, support a large number of transmitters and pick up transmitted signals from as much as 500 feet.
