Incorporation of IoT and AI-Based Technology with Automated Gates to Attract Consumer Demand

The Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence have created a new buzz in infrastructure security and opening & closing the automation business ecosystem. Increasing internet penetration and availability of high-speed connections across the globe have paved the way for high-tech gate openers’ production capable of command door opening from any remote location. The individual needs to connect to the internet and access the door controls using authorized access to navigate the door's movement.

ASSA ABOLY is working extensively in the research & development division to integrate new and advanced technologies in the current door opening system. The organization provides a new high-end technology, Aperio. It is aimed to provide customers with better and more intelligent ways to enhance security solutions. Furthermore, ASSA ABOLY has ventured into investments to diversify a portfolio of entrance environments and door opening platforms.


Safe and Secured Mode of Operation and Extensive Reduction in Operational Cost to Boost Gate Openers’ Installation

The installation of automated openers provides customers complete control over closing and opening the gate and decide the individuals or the vehicles allowed inside the premises. The automated gates eliminate the requirements of security personnel who are otherwise deployed to attend and authorize the vehicles at the entrance. The advanced opening systems are also integrated with the ability to put on notifications on the attached smartphones, tablets, or laptops about the people entering inside the infrastructures, allowing the operators to maintain timely data about the entry and exit of individuals.

Additionally, natural gas or wood pellet burning has a discouraging factor of 50% to 70% energy losses varying according to various factors. On the other hand, its counterparts operating on electric power have almost negligible energy losses, prompting substantial market performance. Moreover, the electric-powered fireplaces eliminate the requirement of chimney, wood log storage space or piped gas connection for installation. Easy installation and reduced expenditure on chimney cleaning are also affecting the buying decisions of customers.


High Initial Cost Involved in Purchase and Installation is anticipated to Curb Market Development

Initial cost and installation involved in procurement and installation of automated openers is the main concern derailing the sales growth rate of the market. Advanced high-tech gates that come with additional features also incur a heavy toll of cost than other conventional gates. Additionally, these gates come with numerous accessories, which require timely and professional maintenance, which adds overhead operational cost, thereby minimizing the acceptance of advanced gates.

The automated gates primarily run on electric power, so in situations of power failures, the automatic gate access systems fail in operation. Thus, the owner or facility operator is also required to plan the structure of an electricity backup generator, increasing the incurred cost for initial installation.
