Home Security Systems - Perimeter Protection

Date: 21 April 2022

Home security systems can encompass more than just a few security cameras. The boundary of your property is your first defence, so why not protect it?

Why wait for the burglar to peep through your window when you could fortify your home! A lack of exterior security means one less step for the burglar.

Perimeter protection prevents the problem before it arises, no one can burgle your home if they can't make it into the garden!

This is where door entry systems with automatic gates come in.

Discover how to defend your home at the first hurdle with this blog post!

The perfect combination

Door entry systems and automatic gates are a match made in heaven! The door entry system restricts access to your property but gives YOU the power of choice. The physical barrier of the automatic gate then enforces this choice. The gate can't be opened manually, so the only way anyone can enter is with your permission.

The secure door entry system process

Visitors must press an external buzzer to alert you that they are at your door. The buzzer
connects to an intercom and/or a video camera.

Using this technology, you can safely talk to/see the visitor from inside your home. This gives you the opportunity to ask for a name or proof of identity, greatly decreasing your chances of being involved in a distraction burglary.

If you decide to permit the visitor entry, you press the button on the internal intercom that opens the door.

The automatic gate process

An automatic gate set into a perimeter fence creates an imposing barrier between
your family and the neighbourhood burglar. YOU determine how and when the gate opens.

  • You set the code that will open the gate. A keypad entry system grants access to your property. No code, no entry.


  • A remote fob offers you primary control of the gate. You simply push the button on the fob to enter and the gate will close automatically after you've passed through.

Professionals do the job right!

An amateur could install a potentially ineffective and dangerous system. Faulty gates have killed people in the past! A professional will install a safe, quality system that's tailored to your needs. You can take comfort in knowing that your system will protect your family for years to come.

Always research your installer and ensure they have the relevant accreditations like SSAIB and NSI. Proper accreditation guarantees a great quality door entry system that will secure your home and protect your family.

The Gate Safety accreditation ensures the same quality for your automatic gate system. Without this protection, you risk the installation of a faulty system that could do you more harm than good.
