Looking at the title, you’re most likely wondering “What is Access Control?” Quite simply, it is a method of restricting access to a place or resource, in this case by putting up a secure remote operated gate. According to the FBI, in their most recent Crime Report, there were 1,729,806 burglaries in 2014. With security on the forefront of everyone’s minds, people are looking for ways to keep their homes and families safe. Here are three ways that gated access can help you.
1. A privacy fence/gate keeps out unwanted guests and noisy neighbors.
When you choose one of our wrought iron fences, you can choose the finials on top, or opt for the pressed spear top. Both options create a fence which is beautiful to look at, adds to the landscape and is difficult for a burglar to climb.
2. A well-made fence can suggest an even better security system.
This one plays to people’s perceptions. If you see a well-made fence, you think that the person is also likely to have a good security system to go with that fence. People typically believe what is easiest. In this case, the simplest answer is that, if someone goes to the trouble of building a fine-looking fence (like one of ours), then they will also have spent money on a security system to match it.
3. A secure gate with lights can deter burglaries.
If a person is looking to break into your house, the last thing they want is to draw attention to themselves. Things like a high fence, which has to be gotten around, and motion activated lights revealing their location make it less likely that someone is going to make the attempt. It’s simply too much trouble, with not enough reward.
Wood and iron gates can make a wonderful addition to any home, both for the security they provide and the value they add to a home. If you’re interested in learning more please, contact us.
