SWi Gate Operators


Looking for easy and secure access to your residence, business or facility? Consider  gates & operators installed by SWi, LLC.

SWi began installing gate operators in 2002, beginning with large, high-security overhead track gates at the Wyoming State Penitentiary. Gates & operators now represent an exponentially increasing part of the services we offer. Besides installing the operators, we take care of most of the control work as well. That work is overseen by Carl Olson, who was a career journeyman electrician prior to the SWi start-up.

Gates & operators can be as simple as a keypad entry and pre-exit, to a telephone entry and exit, to the use of proximity cards and radio transmitters. Key features people ask for are the ability to open and close gates remotely, often combined with the ability to control and track access by employees or personnel. That can be accomplished by using proximity cards in conjunction with radio transmitters.

Transmitters operate much like garage door openers, allowing the users to enter without exiting their vehicles. Gate control systems also can be integrated with phones and networks to allow facility owners or managers to control access and change system settings from remote locations. Security can be enhanced by adding video cameras, which can be viewed on location or remotely.

All gate controllers installed by SWi meet UL 325 guidelines governing gate safety. Although UL 325 has not been adopted by Wyoming and many other states, we will not install a gate that does not meet that safety standard. Our customers can rest assured that not only will the gate operate correctly, but it will also operate safely.

SWi’s obligation to its customers does not end once gate controllers are installed. We provide routine maintenance as well excellent response times in the event of problems with gate operation. In addition to servicing and maintaining our own gates, we can provide service contracts for customers who want their previously installed gate controllers serviced routinely. We have been put in charge of many gates installed and/or serviced poorly by others.

Satisfied customers with gate controllers installed by SWi include the Wyoming State Penitentiary, FedEx Ground, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Marathon Oil Company, El Paso, Wyoming National Guard.  Too numerous to list are the municipal, airport and residential customers throughout Wyoming and Montana that SWi has provided with access control.
