Similarly, all of our electric gate openers have adjustable obstruction sensing and optional full control. This means that the homeowner can adjust the obstruction safety
measures to suit individual lifestyle needs. For example, a home with animals and small children might have more sensitive settings, while a home with a single resident might have
less sensitive settings since obstruction would be less likely. Of course, the safety measures cannot be turned off altogether; should the gate come into contact with an obstruction,
it will cease to operate. This prevents or reduces damages or injuries. Optional full control is the safest setting for gate opener operation. All of our electric gate openers can be
set to automatically reclose after opening to the fully open position, but this risks closure on pedestrians or property. The safer setting is full control with a remote device; after the
vehicle or pedestrian has passed through the driveway gate, it is safe to signal the gate opener to close the gate.
Additionally, all of our driveway gate openers run on low voltage systems, which makes installation and accessory installation more convenient and, more importantly,
safer. Low voltage systems are safe enough for DIY installation, but they also make adjustments after installation safer. Adding accessories like intercoms, photo eyes, remotes,
etc. is made safer with the low voltage design of our gate openers.
Estate Swing also ensures gate opener safety with accessories that enhance the safety of gate opener operation. All of our remotes have a deliberate attempt function,
meaning that the button must be held for a second and anything less will not be acknowledged. This means that there is little chance of reversing the gate accidently on a vehicle or
pedestrian, and in combination with our optional full control feature, this is truly the safest means of operating any automatic gate opener. In addition, we offer photo eyes which
are a convenient means of automatically activating the driveway gate opener. To ensure safety, our photo eyes activate the automatic gate opener only when a metallic object
traveling at more than 5 mph passes through the photo-eye beam. This means that pets and children are not likely to activate the photo eye so the driveway gate maintains a
