Virtual Gate Guard
Virtual Gate Guard System
Replace or enhance your traditional security guard or telephone entry call-box with a patented Envera Kiosk System. These gate security systems consist of high-resolution digital cameras, video and audio recorders, and licensed Virtual Guards located at our Central Station.
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.
There are two Virtual Gate Guard options with auto-verify technology:
Expedite entry transactions with Automatic License Plate Recognition. This system captures the license plate of every guest that arrives at a gated community entrance. If the driver’s license plate is in the MyEnvera database and the guest has been manually verified once before, the gate will automatically open.
Automatically verify each guest with Automatic Driver’s License Recognition. This system is equipped with an easy-to-use, ATM-style card slot. When guests insert their driver’s license, the name is cross-referenced with the MyEnvera database to determine if the guest is authorized. If the guest is a permitted visitor and has been manually verified once before, the gates will automatically open.
When a guest is not registered and automatically authorized with the License Plate Recognition or Driver’s License Recognition, our licensed, virtual security guards will greet the guest and contact the resident he or she is going to visit. The Virtual Guard will contact that resident to confirm that the guest is allowed in and then grant or deny access as necessary.
Two-way audio and one-way video facilitate the communication between a guest at the gated community and the Virtual Guard at our Central Station. Each guest is logged using video and audio verification.
The Virtual Gate Guard is compatible with communities that would like to keep a manned guard at the gate during certain hours. With our Guard Module Security Guard Software with MyEnvera Support, communities can have a centralized visitor database, guard metrics reporting, and quick visitor search software for the onsite security guard.
A third Virtual Gate Guard option is available for communities with specific access requirements, like community development districts. This entry system requires guests to stop at the Kiosk for video capture of the driver, vehicle, and license plate information. While guests are not denied entry into the community, the association 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 system, residents can 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 Virtual Guards will notify community representatives so appropriate action can be taken. The audio and video of each transaction is stored and can be replayed, analyzed, and submitted to law enforcement or insurance representatives as needed.
