After being in the electronic security industry for over 28 years, I found that clients are under the false impression that their gate is a security installation, when in fact the automatic gate is really more of a convenience. Gates being lifted or ripped off its rail is becoming a common problem, even during broad daylight.

I have researched, designed and manufactured a product that is in essence a single zone alarm system that is always armed and only bypassed for a short time after the gate is triggered legitimately.

The output of the alarm can be connected to a siren or linked to the household alarm that may be connected to armed response or it can even be linked to a GSM Communicator to SMS the owner about the forced entry.

Typically the trigger of the Gate Alarm would be an industrial Door Contact mounted in the motor housing, other options would be to use the safety beam or ev
en to install a outdoor motion sensor.
