4 Ways to Prevent Unauthorized People from Entering Through Your Community’s Automatic GatesGated communities are renowned for their safe and secure environment. Most of these communities install automatic gates to prevent intruders from entering, hence ensuring protection of the people inside the premises. While automatic gates are good when it comes to preventing unauthorized entry, there are several extra measures that can be taken to further enhance the security of the gated community. By combining automatic gates with security guards and monitored systems, crime and vandalism can be drastically reduced and the safety of the residents can be ensured.

Here are 4 ways to prevent unauthorized people from entering through your community’s automatic gates:

1. Friendly Guards That Know Everyone

Automatic gates are great, but they don’t offer a personal touch of security. Furthermore, it’s easy for unauthorized people to steal a key card or find another way to enter the premises. With a friendly guard at the entry gate that monitors everyone who enters and leaves the community, it’s much more difficult for an unauthorized individual to sneak in. Knowing the security guards is also helpful for the residents. It makes them feel safer and guards can also learn everyone’s habits quite easily.

2. Remotely Monitored Security Cameras

Most gated communities, even if they have automatic security gates and cameras, aren’t always monitored. In fact, most of the times no one even looks at the security footage unless there’s an incident. That’s why remotely monitored security cameras are recommended to prevent unauthorized people from entering via the community’s automatic gates.

With remote monitoring, residents can rest easy knowing that someone will always be monitoring the cameras. If they notice a suspicious activity, they are able to call for help immediately. All in all, remotely monitored security cameras boost the security of gated communities.

3. On-Site Guards to Quickly Respond

Combining remote monitoring with on-site guards is the best way to enhance security in gated communities. The person monitoring can contact the on-site guards in case of an emergency and they can respond within a few minutes at most. Having a quicker response time means safer residents and less crime overall.

4. Secure All Access Points

While automatic gates are great, they are usually embedded with wireless connections that make it easier for hackers to gain unauthorized access to gate communities via remotely operated systems. That’s why it is extremely important to have enough coverage for all access points with security personnel when possible. The entry points should also be locked to prevent a breach on the premises. Installing a fence or wall that is attractive yet stable enough to prevent unauthorized access to the premises is also a great option to enhance the security of the gated community.

Final Word

While automatic gates are great for preventing unauthorized entry to gated communities, there are several extra measures that can be taken to further increase the security of these communities. Safeguarding a gated community is a collaborative effort among the management, security personnel, and residents. You can prevent property breaches and protect your gated community by working together and taking the necessary precautionary steps.

I have to say that the service at Superior Gate Services was fantastic. Cindy first took my call and was super helpful and friendly.  We just bought a home that has an electric gate and we wanted it repaired and serviced.  She managed to get us into a slot the next day and called that next morning to give us a time range. Great follow-up! Our technician Sean (I hope I remembered his name correctly) was awesome and went through the repairs,  and gave several operating and home maintenance tips to my husband.  This company aims to please on all counts and delivers !!  We will be using them again and would definitely recommend them.

I got a quote the same afternoon I inquired, had the gate installed within a week, and Scott and his crew have always gone above and beyond to help out, even reconnecting my garage wires that the dog ripped out when they were just quoting me on the gate. If I've ever had any trouble, they go out of their way to come out promptly and help in anyway they can... Obviously without ever charging me for a visit. Highly recommend!!

Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had called them last week first when my automatic gate stopped working but then remembered that I had a home warranty so told them never mind but then it ended up not being covered. So I emailed them back and they called me the next business day and came over within an hour! Scott came out and told me it just needed some tuning up and the actual opener was in good shape and one of the best ones. So he did a tune up and he helped me change the code for my gate opener!

Called these guys off their positive yelp reviews after getting the run around from another contractor. They took my first service call and responded quickly and took care of the problem and worked around my schedule. Since that first call uv had two other properties needing their services and just like the first call no hassles. Show up take care of it and reasonable prices. They don't hit you with extras like some others do they fix the problem and then they do a full tune up and cleaning on the gate at the same time. My other contractor would charge extra to do the tune up. That's dumb. Just make it happen. That's what they do. They just make it happen without taking you to the bank. Thanks superior for being on the team, your a great asset.
