Both entrance and exit gates will be closed during hours specified by the
Chadwick Shores Board of Directors. The hours of closing may change based
upon season, day of the week, security concerns, and special circumstances.
When the entrance gate is closed you will press the hash tag symbol (#) followed
by your individual homeowner 4 digit access code on the keypad at the entrance
gate to open the gate.
The exit gate opens automatically by sensors in the roadway. The exit gate
opens inward (toward a waiting vehicle) which requires that any vehicle waiting
to exit be positioned behind the white line at the exit gate.
Emergency or yelp sirens activated for three seconds will automatically activate
the entrance gate opening mechanism.
Please drive slowly through the entrance and exit gates. These are blind
areas with no visibility as to what is behind the gate walls. If a vehicle
is parked at the front gate, assume that people are working around the gate
and be mindful.
Opening the Gate
The system contains access codes that have been randomly generated and assigned
to homeowners/property owners in Chadwick Shores. Every homeowner should
know their access code. If you do not have an access code or do not remember
it, contact the suggestion box at www.chadwickshores.com to request your
code. Individual access code should be safeguarded and not passed out to
friends, workers, delivery drivers, or other individuals visiting you within
To open the gate, enter the hash tag and your four digit access code, for
example - #1234. Please press each key slowly to ensure that the keystroke
is recognized. Once your code is recognized, you will hear an audible sound
and see the word "open" displayed on the keypad screen. The entrance gate
will automatically close behind you.
Guest Communications: Providing Gate Access from your Home
Our access control system is equipped with a telephone entry system that
will provide voice communication for your guest from the entrance key pad
to your home by use of the local telephone network. This option is only available
if you have provided Premiere Management Company (our property management
company) with a valid phone number and instructed them to put your name in
the directory. If provided, the homeowner's name and telephone number is
programmed into the telephone entry system.
When guest(s) come to visit a homeowner, they can can look up the homeowner's
name in a directory by using the arrow keys on the keypad to scroll up or
down. Once they have found the homeowner's name they will view on the same
line the owner's directory number. The guest(s) will then enter that number
in the keypad preceded by the hash tag (for example, #011). The entry of
the directory number in the keypad will cause the homeowner's designated
phone to ring.
When the homeowner answers the phone, they will be able to communicate with
the guest(s) for a short time (90 seconds maximum). To grant access to the
guest(s), the homeowner enters nine (9) on their touch-tone phone. This will
open the gate for the guest(s). If the caller is unrecognized or the homeowner
does not want to grant the caller access to the community, the homeowner
simply hangs up their phone.
The homeowner's telephone number is not displayed on the keypad. A telephone
number can be stored in the system without a homeowner's name being displayed
in the directory. If the homeowner chooses this option, he/she will need
to inform any visiting guest(s) of the homeowner's individual three-digit
directory number. Otherwise, the homeowner will not have a method of granting
access to a guest(s) through the telephone entry system.
Exiting Chadwick Shores when the Exit Gate is Closed
Exiting the subdivision is automatic and no code is required. The exit gate
automatically opens INWARD when a vehicle pulls up to the white line at the
exit gate. If you do not stop at the white line and proceed closer to the
gate, a sensor will be activated that will stop the gate/keep the gate from
opening. The exit gate will close automatically behind you after you pass
through the gate.
