Security for Gated Communities and Home Owners Associations
When your property management company or home owners association needs efficient, cost-effective, high-tech security solutions for your gated community, Security Technology of South Texas is the answer. Count on our trusted team for:
Gated Security Featuring Virtual Gate Guard – This automated system gives you greater control and tighter monitoring of who is driving through your gates (or in some cases, running into them and destroying them). Our video cameras detect each driver approaching the gate and send immediate word to our operating center via cloud-based connectivity. Our live security personnel can then perform the necessary checks (including contacting residents for permission to let guests enter), and then allow or prohibit entry as needed.
Automated Gate Controls – Want to make entry as easy as possible for community members in good standing? When these members carry RFID (radio frequency identification) barcode tags on their windshields or headlamps, the automated system scans the tags and lets authorized personnel right through — no human intervention needed. The system also logs entry times while capturing their license plate information.
ePass – A simple two-step process allows residents to create a unique and temporary electronic visitor pass for their guests. An email will be sent to the guest containing a QR code visitor pass. Upon entry to an attended or unattended gate, the guest simply scans the QR code from their smartphone to access the community.
Amenity Center Monitored Video – Are you worried about trespassers jumping into your community pool or using your mud room after hours — or using facilities which are supposed to be off-limits during certain seasons of the year? Our surveillance cameras keep recording 24 hours a day, 365 days a week. If they detect after-hours motion, a real-time video feed is relayed to our security center so we can see what’s happening and respond appropriately (siren, verbal message through a speaker, contacting the authorities etc).
We are partnered with FrontSteps best-in-case HOA security management software. This total community management system features Dwelling Live visitor management technology for total entry control. Residents can send “e-passes” to guests’ mobile devices for quick, accurate RFID scanning and controlled one-time gate entry.
Give your gated community the safety and peace of mind it deserves. Contact us today to tell us your needs!
A vehicle pulled up to the gate of one of our clients and crashes through, causing thousands of dollars in damage. The customer easily retrieved the high quality overview video of the event along with the license plate information, and within a couple of hours a DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) search was performed by the Sherriff’s department, and the intruder was apprehended shortly thereafter.
Our Videofied security system actually detected the “shadow” of an intruder climbing over the fence attempting to burglarize one of our protected customers. We caught them!
