It’s easy to underestimate what it takes to deliver a functional, well designed and integrated entryway gate. It happens all the time. You've seen these gate installations that have been poorly thought out – they’re the ones that are left open, tilted, hit by vehicles, rusting, obviously disconnected because the property owner hates how inconvenient it is to have this broken entryway. They've paid good money to be able to control access to their property but what has been delivered is far from ideal and is now a wasteful pain to manage or try to make right. The gate could have been built correctly. The automations may have been fine. The access control could be the proper set up. But why do so many entry gates underwhelm the clients for whom the system was designed? The answer usually comes down to improper planning and/or a lack of integration of the components.
