Today’s Gate for A Better Tomorrow
Electronic automated gates are a must these days. Not only do they add sophistication and value to your property, they really offer a number of conveniences as compared to the basic lock and key security control. True, they can be costly at times, and may require more power than what a household generally consumes but they also offer advantages that a regular gate does not. For environment conscious people, the extra carbon footprint for installing an electronic gate may be a deterrent in getting one.
How do Solar Gates Work?
The solution? Solar powered gates. These days, a number of things can be powered just by a few hours of sun bathing and that can include your electronic gate system.
There is already a wide range of solar powered gates available on the market. They can be used for above ground or underground installations as well. These gates are powered by batteries that charge from solar panels.
Why Solar Power?
All around the world, people, businesses and governments are in search for better ways of harnessing renewable sources of power with the goal of a better tomorrow for humanity. So it is imperative that we also do our part. Installing solar powered gates as opposed to conventional ones can be our way of making a contribution to this world wide endeavor.
Secondly, solar power is a mature technology and we do not stand to lose due to technical problems or obsolescence. Solar power technology has been in an advanced stage even in the 1950s. So there should be no fear of the technology being inappropriate, a failure or a hazard to our properties’ security.
Where to Find Solar Power Gates?
Solar power kits that meet the energy requirement of a gate opener are already available and have been around for a considerable amount of time. You can also shop for these kits online and install yourself, or hire the professional experts that are experience in the installation.
How Long Will the Battery Last?
Reliability is often a concern for many property owners. A typical electronic system would require a change in the batteries after a regular use of around 60 days. Not with the case of solar power. The good news is your solar powered gates system has the potential of running forever. If you do not live in an area where six months of day and six months of night time is normal, your system can get unlimited amount of power from the sun and you run no risk of being on empty. These stand-alone systems are also very self-sufficient and can run with very little maintenance.
With regards to the durability of the system, it is also guaranteed to be in good condition for a long time. A Solar powered gates system involves very little energy and use in its regular operation. In many cases, it only ever functions up to four times in a day in most residential properties. Chances of damage to the system due to wear and tear are very low. You can count on your system to work for you for a long, long time after it was installed.
In recent years, countless people have turned to solar panels to power their homes and businesses. And now, many are also realising the benefits of solar powered gate openers.
