Are you sure your security gates are serving the purpose well? Security gates should have some features to make it more secure and safe. If the security gate has all the necessary features, then it can really serve its purpose.
Below is the list of certain gadgets which are essential for security gates:
Alarms can be of great help. An alarm becomes active whenever an intruder tries to open the gate. The alarm should be loud enough to make you awake. With a built-in alarm, Apple HomeKit-compatible lock is great to scare off thieves.
Smart locks are very popular with landlords who can enable or disable the digital access. The main purpose of a smart lock is to limit the door access to a few people with an electronic keychain or with a near field communication device like a smartphone.
With the help of door chains, you can slightly open the door to check who is standing outside. The main purpose of a door chain is to communicate with unfamiliar individuals and prevent them from gaining unauthorized entry.
Security Pin Hinges
An individual won’t be able to pull out the door after removing the hinge pins. It is very simple to fix. All you have to do is to change one of the hinges to the one that has a set screw. If you have out-swing doors, make sure you have at least one security type hinge- either interlocking type or security-pin type with a set screw.
Outdoor Security Cameras
A battery-operated wireless camera is great to make sure all hard-to-see nooks and corners are being monitored. Some cameras have an adjustable motion detector that can take videos, infrared, and night vision; a great tool to keep the intruders away.
Video doorbell helps in analyzing guests before they enter your home. The Wi-Fi video doorbell provides video facility, online video storage facility and on-demand video facility with notifications when someone presses the button.
A security fence before the gate is a perfect option to guard your home against intruder access and serves as an excellent deterrent to crime. It can prevent the intruders to enter a property like a school or an establishment.
These gadgets definitely help you enhance the security of the gates. It is best to start using these gadgets as soon as possible.
