The facility offers a gated security access that requires a pin.  When you enter your gate code, it not only opens the gate, but it turns off the burglary alarm for your unit(s).  When you enter your code to leave, the gate opens again and your burglar alarm is turned on again for your unit.  During the week, the gate may be open because Owner Association Staff are onsite.  You still must enter your code at the gate in order to turn off and on your burglar alarm on your unit.
