Like the name implies, a vehicle detection device’s entire job is to detect vehicles on either the inside or outside of your automatic driveway gate and cause the gate to either open or stay open without the need for a gate remote or keypad.
There are two main types of vehicle detection devices: vehicle detection probes and vehicle detection loops.
After your beautiful new gate is installed, you have a dinner party attended by a few of your closest friends. As your good friend Leslie leaves in his S-class Mercedes, he stops his car in the path of your automatic driveway gate so that he can get out to admire the gate’s scroll-work and artwork. Suddenly, the gate begins to swing closed.
Leslie panics, freezes, and watches in horror as your lovely gate bangs against his late model luxury car and leaves some unsightly and significant damage.
