02 Jun: Cost Comparison: Gate Guard vs. Smart Gate Entry System

Throughout human history, the only way to use a gate to control access to a facility has been to employ guards who restrict access through face-to-face interactions. The problem, however, is that hiring a security team to manage a gate is prohibitively expensive in most cases. Additionally, human operators can be manipulated by cunning criminals, and they often make mistakes. Therefore, modern smart gate entry systems have been developed to control access to facilities using modern technology.

11 Nov: Gated Community Security – The Problem with 4 Digit Codes

Technologies have changed, but the gate remains the point that primarily determines whether intruders can succeed at breaking in.

Unfortunately, many facilities are lax with gate security. The most significant gate security issue stems from facilities using 4-digit pins that provide easy access for criminals. Therefore, it is important for people who are responsible for gated community security to understand why 4-digit codes are a serious problem.
