Choosing the Right Gate Opener

  1. Consider the size and weight of the gate. You’ll need an opener that can handle the weight and size of your entrance.
  2. Think about the frequency of use. If your gate is going to be opened and closed several times per day, you’ll need a more durable opener than if it’s only used occasionally.
  3. Consider any features or requirements you may need, such as remote access, battery backup, an app, telephone entry, and video entry.
