Electric Driveway Gate
Once you have an electric automated gate, you will never want to go back to manual! Experience the convenience of staying in your car and opening a gate remotely, avoiding the Texas heat and bad weather.
Go Electric with Buzz
At Buzz Custom Fence, we design and install electric gates for any fence, any purpose. Our team can automate gates for homeowners, apartment complexes, rural ranch properties, gated neighborhoods, factories, even the zoo!
Depending on the length and weight of the gate, a heavy duty opener may be required – providing better performance. Whether you want to automate an existing gate, or you’re working with Buzz throughout the entire process, we will help decide on a compatible gate opener. Gate openers can only open a gate one way, so a decision will need to be made on swinging, sliding or vertical pivot.
Electronic gate openers work for all gate types. Gate openers generally operate via alternating current (AC) power, solar panels or batteries. Some gates use all three power sources for reliable and consistent performance. You may be wondering which power source do we recommend? Here are a few indications that electric is your best bet:
- Frequent gate use. If you open your gate to leave in the morning and come home at night, you aren’t asking too much of it. But if guests, family members or clients are coming and going all day, you will need a sturdier gate opener to withstand mechanical and power demands. Electricity is more reliable than a solar-powered opener, which is limited in the number of times it can open a security gate each day.
- Tight budget. Electric is cheaper to install and maintain than solar powered openers. If you have little budget for automation, electric is the best option.
- AC power is available. If AC power is already available at the location of your gate, then going electric is a no hassle option. Running wiring out to the gate location, can be expensive and delay the installation of an electric gate.
- No hassle. Other than a power outage, electric gates work day after day. Solar panels require more maintenance, including cleaning and re-positioning panels after storms.

I recently moved into a new home that came with an automatic driveway gate. I had no idea how it worked except that I knew it wasn’t opening. I called, they were able to get me an appointment for that week and arrived promptly at our appointment time. They quickly saw the problem of why the gate was not opening properly and explained to me how everything should be working so I had a better understanding of the unit. They fixed the driveway gate and then were nice enough to do also make it so my pedestrian gate also worked more smoothly. Will definitely call again for any fencing needs!

Needed to get an electric swing gate for my driveway. I had an existing steel gate that I wanted to reuse. Buzz Fence thought they could do the job while saving the existing gate. Another vendor recommended that I not use the existing gate. Buzz’s quote was $1750 cheaper than the other vendor, mainly because of the cost of the gate. Buzz is very professional, prompt, and a team I will highly recommend.
