Big Canoe security gates have been replaced with the latest LiftMaster equipment. Each gate functions well with DwellingLIVE, our visitor management and access control system.
Summertime means busy times at the gates. On Friday, July 1, gate operators issued 761 guest passes, more than double the daily average of 350.
Gate attendants work in 12-hour shifts to serve the Big Canoe community with courtesy and efficiency. In addition to printing guest passes, attendants must monitor entry and exit lanes, answer telephone calls, monitor the dispatch radio for emergency traffic, verify each guest has entry authorization, check driver’s licenses, record vehicle license tags, provide maps and directions, and install transponders. When do they eat?
Make sure to provide your full name and 911 address or lot number to your guests or contractors. When a vehicle arrives, the driver will be asked for a valid driver’s license before entry is allowed. If the driver is not on your entry list, you will be called, possibly only one time if the attendant is busy, to accept admittance. If you cannot be reached, entry will be denied.
To assure all guests, contractors, and subcontractors will be admitted, enter their names directly into DwellingLIVE or telephone approval for expected guests 24/7 at (706) 268-3376. To gain access to DwellingLIVE, email email@example.com.
