What is a gate telephone entry system?

An entry telephone system is a device that uses plain old telephone service (POTS) over a traditional telephone line to allow communication between tenants within a building and guests seeking gate access. Additionally, tenants are able to remotely open the gate for visitors.

There are a number of considerations and solutions that must be taken into account when controlling access at a gate. There are situations, for example, where the entry system may be installed at a front gate located hundreds or even thousands of feet from buildings or units on the premises. As a result, the telephone entry system for gates must be able to operate over such a long distance. It is necessary to run extensive wiring or maintain a powerful, consistent signal in order to operate wireless gate entry systems.

Typically, gates are used to control access for cars, so the entry hardware may be installed next to the driveway. For pedestrians and drivers, it is a complex undertaking to ensure that outdoor gate access control is convenient and reliable.

What is the function of a gate telephone entry system?

In order to gain a deeper understanding of telephone entry system, let us review its key advantages. 

To operate a gate telephone entry system, a signal is sent from the gate station to a resident’s substation, which allows the gate to be remotely unlocked. The following is an example of how a visitor can contact a tenant using a gate telephone entry system:

  1. An initial step in the process is for a visitor to select a tenant using a base station located at a gated entrance. A tenant can be found in the directory of the base station by the visitor. The majority of systems provide a call button or a code that can be entered to dial the tenant’s substation.
  2. A substation is then connected to the base station. Substations and base stations are connected through the internet, cellular networks, radio signals, or wiring.
  3. Using the substation, the tenant communicates with their visitor. Both the base station and the substation transmit audio, enabling a two-way conversation in real time. Visitors and tenants can see each other as well as hear each other when using gate telephone entry systems with cameras.
  4. Lastly, the tenant grants entry. An electronic signal is sent to the motorized gate when the tenant presses a button on their substation. Once the gate has been unlocked, the guests are able to enter.

In general, a simple two-door telephone entry system may cost as little as $1,000 and may go as high as $10,000 or more for an all-in-one multi-tenant telephone entry and access control system. The cost of installation hardware and labor is not included in this calculation.

Almost all gate operators allow the user to switch to a manual mode in order to open the gate manually. Depending on the manufacturer, the method varies. For a chain drive slide gate, it is possible for the chain to be detached in a worst-case scenario. In the case of a swing gate, the arm that connects the operator to the gate may be detached.

Remote control devices are programmed to a receiver that can activate a gate opener in different ways depending on the manufacturer of the device. It is usually possible to enable a receiving device to “learn” a transmitter by using a “Learn” button or a program step. For programming instructions, please refer to one of our experts.

If telephone entry systems are not maintained and upgraded on a regular basis, they can develop hardware and software issues. The method of repairing it will depend on where you purchased it. If the system is fully serviced, you should not be concerned. As soon as the system detects a problem, it will alert our technical team, who will be able to resolve it remotely or on-site.

All gates require some form of power in order to open, whether that power is provided by an electrical source or by manual operation. It is possible to operate most gate operators on solar power with a battery system in the operator if the desire is not to run a high voltage power source to a remote gate.

There is a great deal of force exerted when moving the gate, so all slide gate operators require some type of pad to secure them. Various drive mechanisms are available for slide gate operators (chain drive, hydraulic rail drive, rack). Therefore, the installation process differs depending on the type of drive mechanism. It is advisable to hire a professional to install a gate operator.

A commercial door operator is a complex system, designed to integrate with a wide variety of doors, functions, and situations. Additionally, the size, weight, and number of cycles determine which type of operator is required, in addition to the type of door (Standard Sectional, Rolling Steel, etc.). It is therefore imperative that you consult with a professional installer of LiftMaster products for assistance in selecting an operator.
