1st Choice Installs Driveway Gates in North London

According to recent crime statistics for North London, the largest percentage of crimes – 35.2% – were attributed to anti-social behaviour. This somewhat vague term includes trespass, excessive noise, littering or drugs paraphernalia, and misuse of fireworks. Many of the clients 1st Choice Security Systems works with in North London, express a desire to keep these kinds of behaviour away from their property.

Driveway gates in North London are an excellent way to keep anti-social behaviour at bay, but they also perform an additional security function. Doorstep scammers rely on being able to speak to homeowners in order to con money out of them. They prey on the most vulnerable, as 85% of victims are 65 or over. Automatic gates create a protective front line which scammers have to negotiate, before getting to the front door.


3 Non-Security Related Benefits of Driveway Gates

Electric gates are a powerful way to protect your property, your family, and older more vulnerable relatives. Many of our clients, however, want driveway gates installed for reasons that have nothing to do with security. Here’s 3 of the most popular benefits homeowners are looking for when installing driveway gates in the North London area:

  1. Privacy. Wood or metal electric gates create an effective barrier between the public world of the pavement, and the private realm of your home. And there’s no need to install fortress-type gates to achieve this. We regularly install elegant designs that cleverly shield your home from unwanted attention.
  2. An Elegant Frontage. Beautifully designed and finished driveway gates offer a stylish way to welcome guests to your home. Whether you’re looking to channel the elegance of the Victorian era with wrought iron gates, or you prefer the stylish minimalism of steel gates, 1st Choice creates bespoke automatic gates that ‘complete’ the style of your home.
  3. Increase the Value of Your Home. For North London clients wishing to sell their property, automatic driveway gates are an excellent way to make your home more attractive to buyers. In a housing market where everyone’s looking for ‘differentiators’, electric gates are proven to be popular with buyers of all ages.

Making Your Driveway Gates Secure

1st Choice Security Systems design and install bespoke driveway gates for clients. This means that we create great looking gates, that fit your driveway perfectly. Beyond that, though, we offer a range of security enhancements that make them an effective deterrent against crime. The two enhancements that are particularly effective are:

  • Residential CCTV. This is an effective deterrent to opportunistic crime, but it also allows you to observe activity near your property 24 hours a day via your mobile.
  • Door Entry System. Anyone wanting to gain entry will need to buzz through to the house and identify themselves using either an audio, or video device.
