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, they are:

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.
