Automated gate systems are a popular choice for securing different kinds
of properties across the residential, commercial and industrial segments. Gate
automation delivers convenience and security while adding value to the property.
However, careful planning is necessary when selecting an automated gate
system; to make the correct selection, it is important to focus on finding a
qualified automated gate supplier first.
There are several qualities that one should look for in an automated
gate supplier. The gate automation provider should offer integrated service
delivery, a full range of products and systems, quick response and fast
turnaround times, highly qualified technicians, reliable service guarantees and
an established reputation.
Suppliers offering integrated
Choose an automated gate supplier that provides the assurance of integrated
service delivery covering planning, design conceptualisation, installation, and
service. The right supplier will recommend automated gate systems based on the
buyer’s need and not what they want to sell. The end-to-end support will cover
supply, installation and long-term service for maintenance and repair.
Suppliers offering a full range
of automated gate systems and accessories
Access gates might need additional security features such as card and
transmitter programming, parts, access cards, and transmitters. The customer
should be able to buy automated gate systems and allied products from the same
supplier instead of having to go to different suppliers. In addition to the
convenience of dealing with only one supplier, the buyer can also ensure that all
the products are compatible.
Suppliers offering quick
response and quicker turnaround times on enquiries
Check the supplier’s customer service policy and turnaround time for
requests, concerns, and enquiries. Get the assurance of a supplier that will
provide service and support for the long-term.
Suppliers offering highly
qualified technicians or employees
Choose a company that is staffed by trained and experienced technicians
who are up-to-date on the latest technology and safety issues, and can address
the buyer’s requirements. Check whether the supplier provides continuous
education and training to their technicians. This guarantees access to the best
technicians for installation of automated gate systems, repair of existing
equipment, and programming of security systems.
Suppliers with clear service
agreements, warranty, guarantee, and repair policies
Read the fine print. A good automated gate supplier will have service
agreements that will minimise downtime of the security system.
Suppliers with a good reputation
and established business
If correctly installed and maintained, the automated gate system will
provide years of trouble-free convenience and additional security for the property.
Choose a supplier who will be able to provide service throughout the life of the
