Golden Rules for Gate Access Systems11/21/2013 Back To Blog
The gate clicker might be small in size but it's perhaps the most powerful weapon at your possession for your personal safety. The presence of gates signifies the ultimate effort of households to strategically fortify their properties, keep intruders out, their kids in, shield the entire perimeter and ensure personal security. The protection of the entire home basically relies on the capacities and condition of a single gate remote and that's why it should be highly valued and secured. After all, these little gadgets can be easily lost or attract the attention of little children and become their new favorite toy and this won't only be a possible wound to your security but also a potential threat to their welfare.
Keep gate remotes safe
Today, there are several access entry systems for electric systems and regardless of their type, technology or form, they are all equally important for both your security and safety. Don't forget that a multicode remote will not only open the gate but also the garage door and possibly your car or house. If it gets lost, your property will be an easy target for potential perpetrators. It's not a coincidence that children are the usual victims of garage doors and residential gate openers. At the age of five, we would probably find the moving doors fascinating and would want to play with the remote too and that's exactly why you need to keep the clicker hidden and certainly out of their hands.
Unwillingly, children can also cause significant damage to your security if they are aware of your personal code for the gate opener keypad. At a young age, they may not recognize right from wrong but their memory is like a sponge. They might accidentally share the code with strangers or use it themselves to exit the property just because you punished them. For these reasons, it's best to keep codes secret and possibly change them often to ensure complete home security and the safety of your children.
