Long before YouTubers were making so-called “tier lists” on everything from League of Legends champions to their favourite movie snacks, an American psychologist by the name of Abraham Maslow posited a theory of motivation that placed human needs in a “hierarchy” in which they were ordered according to their importance to human psychological health.
Today, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a staple of psychology and understanding not only human motivation, but also human behaviour, as we work towards actualising these innate needs.
Unsurprisingly, the need for safety and security is pretty much in the top tier, second only to physiological needs such as food, shelter and rest. There’s a certain feeling you get when you know that you and your loved ones are taken care of. It doesn’t really have a name – peace of mind probably comes closest – but we all know when we feel it, and we all know when it’s absent because we feel distressed, anxious and worried. Ergo, you go to great lengths to protect your family against whatever outside forces may wish them harm, including safeguarding them against crime.
Having a gate motor installed is one of the best decisions you can make to improve personal security as it helps to control access to your property and, with our high-speed models, you spend less time in your driveway where you are vulnerable. In addition, our super-fast gate motors have an automatic close feature that works in tandem with your gate’s infrared beams to close your gate securely behind you, helping to mitigate the risk of tailgating.
We know that, when it comes to your security, there can be no time wasted and downtime is just not an option. With our innovative Service Exchange Programme, your installer instantly gets a replacement unit when he brings your D5-Evo gate motor to any of our branches, so your gate can be back up and running in a flash.
Your installer can learn more about this exciting initiative here. Currently available in South Africa only.
