Front Gate Access Guidelines

We all have a role in keeping our community safe and secure. One of the most important ways you can help is to be very cautious about giving out your personal 4-digit gate code. It should NOT be given to anyone outside of your immediate family. It’s best to treat this code like your home alarm code.

Personal gate codes are rarely changed, so once you give it out, that person will always have 24/7 access to the community. There are better ways to provide access for your guests:

  • If you’re going to be home, the best way is to provide your 3-digit directory number. When your guests enter the 3-digit number at the keypad, the system will call your phone. When you have verified it’s your guest, press "9" on your phone to open the gate.

  • Your guest can look up your name in the directory on the keypad box and press the “CALL” button to have the system call your phone. After you have verified the caller as your guest, press "9" to open the gate.

  • If you’re not going to be home but you have service personnel (e.g., house cleaners) arriving, there is a day worker code you can provide to them. This code is valid Monday - Saturday from 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Once you provide this code to someone, they will have access to the community any time the code is valid.


  • Your 4-digit personal code never changes unless you or the Security Committee feel it has been compromised.

  • Your 3-digit directory code never changes unless there’s an issue with the code. Also, you can associate your 3-digit code with either your home (landline) phone or a cell phone.

  • The day worker code changes periodically.

If you need your 3-digit directory code, you can either contact Security or look it up in the directory at the gate. Also, contact us if you need the day worker code.
