When you have an automatic security gate installed, it uses a motor to power it. The motor is what has the sensors that are triggered when the remote is pressed and it pushes the gate open. This is why automatic security gates are so popular. They are practically impossible to force open and so, criminals will have a very difficult time trying to break in.  

The motor you get is one of the most important things to consider. You might get a very attractive gate, but if the motor is of a low quality, then you would be wasting your money. You should do your research on which gate motors are the most reliable.  This will ensure that the motor cannot be manipulated by any criminals and thus, allow them to open the gate.

Protecting your motor is of importance. It is the most expensive part of the automated gate system. You can have it protected by a case that has a lock and key to protect the motor from being stolen. In addition, the casing will also protect the motor from exposure to the sun and other weather elements. These weather elements can cause damage to the gate motor and so, the casing would be the best way to protect it.
 
In addition to the above, an automated gate will increase the value of your home. Increased security is the best way to increase the value of your home and it is thus, a good investment. Most home seekers want a home that already has good security features and an automatic gate is a desirable form of security.  

A good gate motor has a good battery as well. This battery kicks into use when there is an electricity power cut. This is very important because if there is a power cut you would still want to be able to get into or out of your home. A good battery life will mean that the gate will open automatically for many hours until electricity is restored. These are some of the things you should take into consideration when choosing a gate motor.
