There are two Virtual Gate Guard options with automatic verification technology:

Driver's License Technology

License Plate Technology


Residents living in communities with an Envera Virtual Gate Guard have access to our MyEnvera web portal and smart-device app. MyEnvera is a resource for residents to update their guest list, household information, and more.

When a guest is not registered and automatically authorized with license plate or driver’s license technology, our trained, virtual guards will greet the guest and contact the resident he or she is going to visit. Once the resident is contacted, the virtual guard will grant or deny entry as instructed by the resident.

Two-way audio and one-way video facilitate the communication between a guest at the gated community entrance and the virtual guard at our Central Monitoring Operations Center. Accompanying cameras at the entrance record all activity and license plates for guards to see in real time, as well as refer to when needed for video retrieval or transaction reviews.

The Virtual Gate Guard is compatible with communities that would like to keep a manned guard at the gate during certain hours but would like to save money and increase efficiency as well. Envera’s Guard Module Software is often utilized by on-site gate attendants during daytime hours, with Envera’s Virtual Gate Guard continuing to verify visitors during the overnight shift. In addition to being a cost-efficient solution, communities have a centralized visitor database, guard metrics, and software designed for visitor verification at a gated entrance.

A third Virtual Gate Guard option is available for communities with specific access requirements, like community development districts. This entry system requires visitors to stop at the kiosk for video capture of the driver, vehicle, and license plate information. While guests are not denied entry, the community will have video and audio records in case of incidents at the entrance or in the community.

While guests are greeted and verified with a Virtual Gate Guard, residents have quick and easy access to the community through a designated resident lane with Access Control. Envera uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) to grant access to residents entering in their registered vehicles.

In case of questionable or criminal activities, our service includes video and vehicle owner information retrieval to notify community representatives who can take appropriate action. The audio and video of each transaction is stored and can be replayed, analyzed, and submitted to law enforcement or insurances representatives as needed.
