Using the front gate access system
The front entry gate system has been reactivated as
of Friday evening, August 15, 2008. The system offers two basic services,
1. If an Owner arrives at the gate and does
not have their key, the gate can be opened by inserting the 4-digit
code provided by the Owner into the system. To use this service, simply
press the asterisk (*) followed by your 4-digit code and the gate
will unlock for approximately 10 seconds and will then re-lock.
2. If a visitor arrives at the gate and wants to gain access,
they would find the Owner's/Tenant's name on the adjacent directory
board, press the "#" sign on the key pad; they will hear
a dial tone and should then enter the Owner's/Tenant's 2-digit code
found next to their name on the directory board. At that point, the
Owner's/Tenant's phone will ring and you can then speak to the visitor.
When satisfied with their identity, you simply press "#, 9"
and the gate will unlock for approximately 10 second. IMPORTANT; when
you press the "#, 9", the phone will also hang up and you
will NOT be able to speak with the visitor again. I recommend telling
your visitor that you are going to unlock the gate and if it does
not unlock for some reason, simply call you again using the system.
We have added all of the names that we are aware of related to the
various Units on the front gate directory board and thank Bob Bassett
for assisting us with that task Friday evening. If your name is not
on the directory board, please call the office (or e-mail me) and
provide us with the Unit number, name you wish to appear, the phone
number you wish to use (any local number, mobile or home phone) and
a 4-digit code and we will get it programmed into the system within
a few days. If you see your name on the Board but the system does
not work (gives you a "directory error" message), that means
we did not receive a phone number and/or 4-digit code and your information
was not programmed into the system.
There were a number of things that had to be completed to get this
system functioning again. On behalf of your Board and ALCOR,
we thank you for your patience regarding getting this system up and
running again and pledge continued improvements in the weeks and months
ahead at Pier 8.
