More and more people in the Austin and Central Texas area are deciding to have an automatic gate installed on their driveway. When we talk to customers about why they decided on an electric driveway gate, we often hear the same answers over and over. Here are some of the main reasons why you should consider an automatic driveway gate.

Enhanced Security

Of course, the main reason Central Texas residents want to add an iron gate to their property is to add more security to their home. Anything that can help keep intruders from accessing your property is a good thing. Plus, an automatic iron driveway gate cuts off many of the ways people can get inside your home, including through the garage or backdoor. They are also a convenient place to add security cameras.


An electric driveway gate is the most convenient way to restrict access to your driveway and property. They can be operated from inside the car and open and close fairly quickly. Often, faster than a garage door. There are even electric gate openers that can be controlled from your smartphone so you can open and close it from anywhere.

Prestige and Aesthetic Appeal

Wrought iron gates have always been known for adding a sense of prestige to a property. Especially when the iron gate is custom designed and custom-welded to create a look that distinguishes your Central Texas property. But even standard automatic driveway gates add plenty of aesthetic appeal while increasing security.

Keeping Children Safe

One that not everyone thinks about right away is how an electric iron driveway gate can help keep children safe. The driveway typically leads straight into the street. So any ball or toy that gets away from a child usually heads down the driveway and out into a dangerous area. An iron driveway gate will keep kids from chasing things out into the street.
