How Does an Automatic Aleko Gates Work?

How Does an Automatic Aleko Gates Work?

The operation of automated Aleko gates takes place through the presence of temperature sensors. The presence sensor causes the door to open when it detects that someone is approaching.  The operating process through temperature is similar; however, the system is activated when the sensor detects the change in infrared waves emanating from the heat of the human body.

It is worth remembering that the activation system of an automatic glass door must work according to its flow, that is, the equipment used, as well as its programming, will depend directly on the local demand.  Another important point to be considered is the speed with which the door opens and closes, which can also be controlled according to the need where it is installed.
