Having merchandise delivered to our doorstep has become almost a daily occurrence for some of us. Over the past few weeks, we have been encouraged to use more of those services available to us to fill many of our everyday needs.
There are three primary delivery services used to deliver to our homes: the US Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS. As you probably are aware, all of those companies have assigned gate entry codes they use to access our community. We also recently extended a code to Domino’s Pizza and Tom’s Creek Nursery and Landscaping for their exclusive access. Others with their own direct access include emergency services and utilities who may need access to everyone.
During these times of heightened health concerns, there may be other local delivery services you have found to bring items to you. As always, we encourage you not to provide your 4-digit gate code to those coming to your home. The best way for you to allow access is to use your 3-digit directory code. Someone delivering to you can use the directory at the gate to look up your name and enter that code to dial the phone number you asked us to assign for you. The number you use may be a landline or a cell phone number. Alternatively, you can provide someone directly the 3-digit code for them to just enter at the gate. When you receive a call from the gate in this manner, you only have to enter the number “9” on your keypad to allow them entry.
Delivery services, similar to other services provided at your home, may also use the day worker code. Contact the
to obtain the current code. This code does periodically change.
As always, if you need assistance with the system, please contact the
. Also, if you are aware of a delivery service that will be regularly coming into the community, you can contact us to see if the frequency warrants assigning a specific code to that service.
Thanks for your assistance in keeping your 4-digit code for your personal use only as it provides 24/7 access to our community.
