What you need to know!
The new gate simply requires a current members badge to swipe a couple inches from the sensing element to activated opening the gate.
Note: entering a code in the key pad will NOT open the gate.

After the gate opens, a line of cars may pass through the gate without having to enter the access code for each car.
How does this work? While the gate is OPEN, each time a car passes over a vehicle sensor buried in the driveway, the gate close delay timer is reset. After the last car passes over the vehicle sensor, the delay timer will count down and when it reaches zero, the signal to close the gate is made.
if multiple cars can go thru at one time, then there is no procedure to check everyone's membership card. so, as a member, if someone is waiting at the front gate when I pull up to the gate, and they follow me in, we don't know if they are a member or not... !!! ???
As with any system, clever people will work on schemes to defeat it. For convenience of members bringing out a guest to the club, we want the ability to have more than one vehicle pass through the gate at one time.
If however, there is a car waiting to gain access at the gate, and they follow you through uninvited, then you have the right and permission to ask to see their membership badge.
Every member is responsible for safety and security of the club. If that person says they are meeting a member at the club, then it’s that members responsibility to meet their visitor at the gate.
If a vehicle (including a motorcycle) is in the gate movement area (between the two posts), the gate will not close. Vehicle loop sensors will detect the vehicle and the gate close signal is prevented.
If the gate is in the process of closing, then let the gate close, and then reopen the gate with the access code. The Vehicle Loop Sensors and Safety Photo Eye are intended to prevent injury and damage and stop the gate from closing if these sensors detect an object present.
The club will still issue an access code each year for the members only section of the website and access to the club house.
The club house and website access code will be mailed as part of membership renewal, you will receive a printed sticker to apply to your permanent membership badge.
Think of it like how Ohio Motor Vehicles does renewals for license plates. That sticker will be printed with the access code for the club house and website.
