There are many things to think about when it comes to monitoring access points within your community to unauthorized visitors and service providers. You need to provide your residents with the best, safest, and most secure living environment possible. But without reliable access control systems, your residents are at risk. Upgrade to a modern HOA access control system to keep them safe. Here’s how modern systems help property managers like you protect their residents.

Upgrading to Modern Cloud-Based Community Gates and Security Solutions

Outdated HOA access control solutions are inefficient, unsecure, and detrimental to your community’s safety. The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the security industry, and the benefits are clear. If you still use outdated card credential technology like low-frequency proximity cards and magnetic stripe cards, you are vulnerable to data breaches, credential cloning, and compliance violations. Now is a perfect time to upgrade to modern, cost-effective, and minimally disruptive access systems like cloud-based home security solutions.

Understanding Residential Access Control Solutions

A cloud-based residential access management system is a single-sign-on software suite that allows you to manage and monitor and control all your on-site security gates, doors, and hardware. Most of these security solutions have a wide range of modules and features to meet your community’s needs, such as visitor management, credentialed access, license plate recognition, telephone entry, and surveillance. You can get access to this software on your computer, tablet, and even your smartphone.

Single sign-on HOA access control is a convenient and secure way to restrict your community’s access to unwanted visitors and give access to authorized people quickly and conveniently. Here are some of its typical features:

Real-Time Monitoring 

You’ll be able to monitor visitors and access records in your community in real-time with cloud-based solutions. Simply log into the software with secure permission based credentials from any location to see what is currently happening, for example, what license plate just entered your gate, what vendors are on the premises, and how many visitors have been processed at your gatehouse. Your residents can also receive text message notifications whenever visitors arrive. Now, you don’t have to be in all places at once.

Gated Community Access Control

Modern access control systems give you complete control of every access point, amenity, and facility. Gated community access control system also lets you decide how long a particular community area (e.g., swimming pool, gym, function room) stays accessible, which is perfect for service providers and vendors.

Mobile Credentialed Access

Forget the keycards and fobs. Instead, the best community security solutions provide non-cloneable mobile credentialed access to all your residents and staff. This allows them to enter and exit all access points in the community with their smartphones. It also enhances everyone’s safety and security: people don’t just lend their mobile phones to anyone. And if there are guests, you can provide them with non-cloneable mobile credentialed access that expires whenever you please.
