You know those houses ? With automatic gates that are controlled by controllers ?
If you're to ask an engineer to make one for you, how much will the whole thing including the installation costs ?
A separated value would be great ...
Like how much for the gate and how much for the actual installation smile.gif

Depends whether your gate can support.

Also, price vary depending on the type you have in mind. There's the sliding version and the regular open outwards type and also whether you want to wire it to some lighting.

Mine costs about RM2k for the new gate and autogate system when I reno my home 2 years ago.

What kind of engineers are you talking about?

You need engineers to pull wire, do tiling work, make the gate, install the electrical parts, etc.

Anyway, I'm moving this into Properties discussion.

I asked them already, RM1K+ to install the auto open on your existing gate. <--- Won't last long IMO.

Gate nowadays belly expensive, mid-end ones already RM10K. sweat.gif

The cost of the gate itself would depend on what kind of gate you want, and what is the size of the gate.

Nobody here can give you the exact cost unless they know what you need and what is the measurement.

One more thing not to forget is the warranty of the Auto gate and axtra remote controls. smile.gif

Choose the design of the automatic gate wisely too.
Normal gate style (opens outwardly), long sliding style and Folding style.
Those sliding style one usually will have a small gate for you to open for people to come in. without opening the gate.

Not sure of the exact prices tho.
You can try yellow pages or ask a few friends for recommendation.

Well, I'm not trying to be funny but Im trying to install one myself, in my own home.
Since I've studied so much automation related subject. I'd think putting them into use would be great.
My dad quite agreed though, he asked about costs so ...
I searched the internet before sensors can costs from 50 to I have no idea how expensive they can be.
As for the gate openers, they costs 700 USD cheapest. laugh.gif

I'll appreciate it if anybody could give any answer to the question above.

At least 2.

Strictly speaking, the autogate mechanism only cost RM2-3k inclusive of installation.

Why want to do it on your own?

The manufacturer spend hundreds on thousands on R&D, do you think you could emulate that on your own?

Anyone here knows about any local autogate company websites with a catalogue of different gate types/mechanisms and their respective price?

Hmmm RM 2 - 3k huh, I'll check around in Malaysia to see what I can do.
It's not about emulating anything now. It's about applying what I've studied into use, not into waste like the rest of the population in Malaysia smile.gif

remote is a small problem ler...you can always get it duplicated.
anyway for SeeD's case...i rather agree with scorgio about just getting the people to do it.

My friend who is studying Electronic engineering did a house alarm system for my dad..a simple one with remote control...and the cost to make one end up more than purchasing a security set outside. Not to mention it comes with warranty and support too. DIY doesn't mean it'll be cheaper. it depends on the thing that you're building tho..because they mass produce it.

But i totally understand what SeeD meant..
well if time and cost is not a problem...and you're doing it as an interest, just go ahead and DIY it. It's satisfying to see the end result/ product. wink.gif money can't buy it.

I was referring to the more reliable brands.

RM1k also got. But what brand? RM600 for the motor & remote set I also saw b4.

Just make sure the motor & other mechanism is durable lah. If not, more headache than convenience.

The labour to install autogate is already RM2-300. So left RM7-800 for the set of machine.

U do the math. smile.gif

My autogate came with 3 remotes... so 2 for the car drivers everyone else gets a key for the small door... once they're in the house there is a switch if they wanna open the autogate.

Third remote is a spare... smile.gif

Can your automatic gates capable of manually open ?
Say no electricity or something. Then you manually open the gate instead of ... well you know what I meant.
