Access Control

Access control comes in various forms from a simple push button to a fully networked system.


Each gate installation comes with handheld remotes, these transmitters will allow you to open and close your gate on entry and exit. Once used the gate will automatically close. We do recommend additional access control as remotes can get lost. Additional remotes can be purchased at any time from Gatehouse Security.

Push Buttons

A simple solution to allow pedestrian entry and exit. For additional security, push buttons can be timed to only allow a user access at certain times. Usually buttons are installed on the gate post or on an independent post near the gate.


Using a keypad allows authorised access using a PIN. You choose a PIN for each user. These can be timed to only allow users entry within certain times.

GSM Intercom

The most popular intercom is a GSM intercom which works on a SIM card housed in the unit. These units will call your landline or mobile phone giving you the you the ability to open or close your gate. You don’t even need to be home! These units come with the option of a keypad giving the additional benefit of PIN entry. The units will call each number on a list of numbers to ensure you don’t miss visitors.

Wired Intercom

Wired intercoms require communication cabling from the unit back to the handset in your property. You have the option of additional handsets for ease of use.

Wireless Intercom

These units do not require cabling or a SIM card. They operate on a wireless receiver, positioned in your property and a portable handset.

Video Intercoms

More of these are coming on the market and can be installed wirelessly, wired or with a SIM card. Units will call your mobile phone and you can see who is at the gate. Unlike video doorbells, the video intercoms allow you to open your gate to your visitors.

Vehicle Detection Loops/ Probes

If you would prefer your gate can be set to open automatically on entry and exit. A loop or probe can be installed in your driveway which will open the gate when your vehicle passes over it. These can also be used for safety to make sure your gate does not close on your car on opening or closing. Loops require a slot to be cut into your driveway and are wired back to the control system.
