Telephone entry systems are an essential component of gate automation, allowing visitors to communicate with residents or tenants to request entry. These systems are available in various forms, such as tes, call boxes, intercoms, telephone boxes, and dial pads, and are equipped with a keypad to enter codes for opening the gate or keeping it open for an extended period. For residential properties, a "call button" is typically used to dial the home number, while commercial systems can dial multiple tenant numbers. To ensure maximum convenience for visitors, a gooseneck post is often used to mount the telephone entry system within comfortable reach from their car window. These systems are generally installed around 10-12 feet away from the gate to allow ample space for the front of the car. While residential systems do not require a dedicated telephone line to operate, commercial systems do so they can dial different tenant numbers. In summary, telephone entry systems are a must-have for any gated property, offering convenience and security to residents and tenants alike.
