Following the success of the USAutomatic Sentry Gate Opener 300S, US Automatic manufactured the USAutomatic Sentry 300D in order to accommodate dual gates that are of industrial and home owner grade. It can lift gates up to 12 feet in length and has a cable of up to 14 feet. Join us as we take a peek at this dual solar swing gate and its features.
- EASE OF USE
The Sentry Gate Opener 300D is a complimentary pack to the 300S. It features a dual pairing device that allows the connection of the primary gate opening to it for a perfect synergy and timing. It is made just for the said component, hence the 300S is a prerequisite for the whole system to work.
The Sentry Gate Opener is covered by a 3 year limited warranty and another 7 years extension for a service warranty with minimal cost on the spare parts that are to be used. This actuator kit is synced with the first 300S and can be quickly set up in a few minutes to a couple of hours.
Right out of the box, this model already provides the user everything that is to be needed in the actual installation of the unit. It includes a 50 foot cable, the actual commercial swing gate opener, a water tight junction box, wire nuts and all other hardware components that are crucial in the mounting process. This actuator operates smoothly and in sync with the 300S providing a seamless connectivity for double swing gates.
Once installed the system communicates with the other gate opener, hence providing you a service that is without lag. There isn’t anything that is to be discussed on its functionality as it does what it is supposed to do- pair up perfectly with the 300S for a more convenient and automatic opening up of gates.
Having an actuator kit that is dedicated with a paired device is good. Warranty wise, this provides a good coverage if ever one of the machines break. Also, each device is a separate unit, meaning more time was spent on manufacturing both- giving more focus on quality and build strength.
We also think that its solar power option in a smart choice especially when the power supply is out. Having a 7 year extended warranty also ensures you that you will be paying the minimum to nothing at all if ever anything goes wrong.
Having another device as a dedicated actuator may be a good thing, but spending another buck for it can be a disadvantage for many. Needing the Sentry Gate Opener300S for the 300D to work can mean that you have to spend more money for both of them. However, if compared to most gate openers, the combined price of both is still way lesser than just one gate opener of other brands. Hence, while this may mean that you have to pay for a double amount upfront, you are still actually saving more money.
Performance wise, the Sentry Gate Opener 300D works perfectly in tandem with its twin. The seamless connectivity on both do not display any noticeable lag. Its build quality is also pretty solid. Although one might need to buy both devices for them to perfectly work, still this product allows the user to gain more savings compared to buying just one from other brands.
