A gated property is no longer reserved for the rich and famous, as many homeowners are looking to add gated fences to their own home no matter the neighborhood and their budget. There are many reasons to add a fence with an electronic swing gate in particular to your home and your property, some of which might surprise you. Note the following.
A fence with an electronic swing gate is different than just a standard fence, as the gate works to keep people from entering your yard rather than just providing a dividing line between you and the neighbors. When your fence completely surrounds your yard and even your driveway and closes with a swing gate, you are less likely to have intruders on your property. Keep in mind that, very often, thieves will approach your home during the day to check for alarms and the types of locks you have on the doors, but a fence with a swing gate that needs a remote to open can more readily keep them out during the day and at night.
A gated fence is secure, but if you need to get out of your car every time you enter or leave your property to open the driveway gate, this can be a nuisance. A swing gate that works with an automatic opener makes it much easier on you as you come and go, as it opens and closes with the push of a button.
3. Discount on insurance
With the added security of a gated fence around your property, you may get a discount on your homeowner's insurance. Your insurance carrier knows that this fence is likely to keep out intruders and thieves and protect your home from vandals as well, so, in turn, your premiums may be lower. If you do decide on a gated fence, and especially one with added security features such as a security camera and coded keypad at the gate, be sure to ask your insurance carrier if you would be eligible for a discount. You may also want to note if a certain style, size, or other such feature would give you a larger discount.
4. Added value
All these benefits of a fence with an automatic swing gate can actually increase the value of your property. If you were to put your home on the real estate market, a buyer may prefer your house because of the added security and convenience of the fence with an electronic swing gate, versus a similar home without this feature.
