Visitor Buttons

Visitor buttons allow visitors etc. who do not have a remote control to open the gate. They are usually mounted on a post, rail, wall etc. on either side of the gate and well clear of the gate so that they can be operated from the window of a vehicle. The most popular visitor buttons and keypads are wireless and do not require any cable to be run to the control box.

There are three types of visitor buttons:

  • Hard Wired Push Button
  • Wireless Push Button
  • Wireless Keypad with PIN number
