There are a number of great reasons to get an electric fence, but here are some of the top reasons why home owners or businesses  should consider getting one:

  • Accessibility and convenience: Having an electric fence helps those with accessibility issues and provides added convenience in inclement weather with the addition of a driveway gate.
  • Increases property value: Having an electric gate helps improve the overall property valuation.
  • Protects Individuals: Having an electric fence is a great way to protect your family or staff from unwanted visitors and suspect individuals.
  • Lowers the costs of some insurance policies: Insurance companies offer discounts for properties that have a home security system like electric fences.  See here for an example of one of these discounts.
  • Aesthetically appealing: Having a beautifully designed and professionally installed fence can bolster the look and profile of your property, promote an inviting impression for guests, and enhance the community’s look and feel.

Despite the many benefits of owning an electric fence, there are a number of challenges that make installation and maintenance a hurdle for property owners or managers.

Unless one is well versed with electric fencing products, relevant bylaws in Cambridge, and optimization of maintenance, property managers and owners can expect plenty of challenges while looking to get an electric fence installed. These can include:

  • Bylaw compliance: Cambridge bylaws are a set of rules and standards that, if not complied with, will incur penalties to your home or business.  Engaging a trusted installer who knows the ins and outs of Cambridge bylaws can help you avoid costs and wasted time.
  • A flurry of manufacturers to choose from: Without the benefit of prior experience, the time spent on installing an electric fence may be wasted if you end up choosing an inferior product. Having a team of professionals who have extensive product knowledge will help you choose the right manufacturer and product.
  • Positioning for long-life: It is easy to neglect factors that affect the lifespan of your gate like wear and tear, climate, and natural elements. Our team helps you select and install your electric gate correctly to ensure that it protects you for its full lifespan.

Top 5 Tips For Dealing with Common Issues with Electric Gates

Here are some great ways to ensure you get the most out of your electric gate. We have picked the top topics from a helpful guide on most common problems with automatic gates:

  1. Cold climate: Disconnect the cables from the battery and then clean the ends of the cables, as well as the battery terminals. If your battery box is made of metal, then you should take some Styrofoam insulation and apply a thin layer of it onto the bottom and the sides of the box.
  2. Gate won’t move: Ensure that the breaker and switch is functioning properly. Test the outlet using another device to see if it is an issue with the gate opener. The problem might be the remote controller needing new batteries or replacement.
  3. Gate keeps beeping: The quick solution is to add another battery if this is a low battery indicator, otherwise it recommended that customer support is contacted.
  4. Power outage: Set your electric fence to manual release and use the manual release key that was given to you when the opener was installed.
  5. Gate won’t open unless someone is next to it: This could be caused by interference from another transmission source. Lengthen the receiver antenna to its maximum height.
