Protecting your Enfield, Camden or Dagenham home is the main priority. Nobody wants to feel unsafe in their own home. There are lots of different ways to help increase home security, many of which we’ve covered in our blog.

Today, we’re going to talk about the main advantages of installing automatic gates in your driveway.

Advantages of adding electric gates to your driveway



When it’s raining or stormy weather outside, there’s nothing worse than having to get out of your car in order to open the gate to your home. With automatic electric gates, it’s as easy as clicking a button – no need to get wet as you leave and reenter your car. 

As you approach the driveway to your Enfield, Camden or Dagenham home, the process is simplified and you can easily gain entry. There are a few different ways to unlock your automatic gates, from card readers to keypads to remote controls.



If you’re looking for additional security then installing an automatic gate can provide this. Electric gates are heavy, strong and secured into place. Typically, this means that criminals will tend to avoid automated gates. Electric gates are difficult to climb over or break into. Because of this, an automatic gate provides security against potential burglars.

Electric gates allow you to take control over who enters and leaves your London property. An additional benefit is that they also keep children and pets in the garden or drive, whilst also keeping any unwanted visitors or animals out.



When making any type of home improvement, a major question we ask ourselves is: does it add value? So, do electric gates add value to a property?

The answer is, yes. Not only are automatic electric gates great for safety, but they are also aesthetically pleasing and can improve the overall appearance of your property. 

When it comes to selling your home in the future, automatic gates are a great selling point and it is reported that they can add up to 5% extra value to your home. This is because having electric gates reassure a lot of buyers as it makes them feel like the house is safe and private.



Electric, automatic gates are built to last for years and a great investment for your home. They are constructed from weather-proof materials to withstand any weather condition and are easy to maintain.
