Residents have two options to access the entrance gates.
 
First, and preferable, residents can use their vehicle EZ Tag to automatically open the gates when approaching within range of the scanner.
 
Secondly, residents can purchase a Key Fob to manually open the gates when pressing the button within range of the scanners.
