This system of accessing space is not new. It has been used in apartments, hospitals, office building and many more public spaces for a long time.
Just recently the expense of the technology involved has made it a more affordable option in home security as well.
This option is more feasible now for the average homeowner. The first thing that needs to be in place is a fence around the perimeter of the yard.
Access control system fencing has changed a lot from the days of chain link. Now day's homeowners can erect fences in a variety of styles and designs to blend in with their homes naturally aesthetic landscape.
Homeowners can choose between fencing that offers complete privacy so no one can view the property. The only issue this causes is that the homeowner also cannot see out.
A way around this is by using mirrors strategically placed that allow the property outside of the gate to be viewed. Another option in fencing that offers height is palisade fence which also offers spaces to see through.
On top of the fencing that supports security around the perimeter of the property homeowner's need to decide on a gate option. Gate style options vary greatly as well as how they function. Homeowners can choose between a swing gate and a sliding gate. Both options have pros and cons.
Design wise they both are incredibly attractive options. Sliding gates require less space to enter and exit and they do not swing out into the space that will be driven through. This is a better option for driveways where space is minimal.
How homeowners choose to gain access through the gate in many different ways. Some like the options of a keypad entry. The downfall of this method is that each time you enter the space you need to roll down the window and push in the code.
