FAQ About Automatic Gates

How does a driveway gate opener work?

  • An automatic driveway gate often uses electric motors or hydraulic systems to function. Single or dual swing gates pivot on hinges located on gate posts positioned at the sides of driveway entrances. Sliding gates, on the other hand, are propelled by a stationary motor close to the gate's track. Our electric gate openers are smart and responsive, featuring safety sensors that will adjust to any obstructions and a timed auto-closing system. This system also features emergency release key switches in case of power failure.

Does having a smart gate opener improve the value of my property?

  • When it comes to selling a property with a gate, including a driveway gate opener often enhances the property's value and curb appeal. Potential buyers tend to see electric gate openers as an added security convenience compared to a manual gate.

How long does an automatic gate operator last?

  • When well-maintained, gates with an automated access control system can last for a decade or longer. Consult the instruction pamphlet for your remote controlled driveway gate to learn more about the recommended maintenance for each specific model. If you need extra assistance with your automatic gate, residential swing gate opener, or slide gate opener, don’t hesitate to contact us today.

Do I need to lubricate my electric gate opener?

  • Regular lubrication is necessary. We recommend every six months by applying a lubricating spray like #2 grease to all moving gate opener parts. Apply the same process to the other moving parts of your gate to ensure it operates smoothly.

How are automatic gate openers powered?

  • You can power your ALEKO automatic gates in a number of ways—it just depends on what works best for your individual situation and preference regarding different access control systems. Options for your driveway gate system include plug-in adaptors, rechargeable batteries, a control box, and solar power.

Can I automate my existing gate?

  • If your gate is from ALEKO, the answer to this question is a resounding yes. If a different manufacturer made your gate, odds are you can still automate it using ALEKO products. Connect with an ALEKO customer service representative to learn about selecting the best door opener option for your gate. We're here to make sure you're prepared with reliable swing gate operators and other types of access control systems.
