EASY RESIDENT ACCESS
Forget searching the car for your gate clicker, or desperately trying to remember the pin code, licence plate recognition technology is making its way into retirement communities.
Over 50s lifestyle developer Halcyon has embraced new technology at its country club community, Halcyon Greens on the Gold Coast.
The community plans to roll out Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) technology that will enable homeowners to enter and exit the community freely in their golf buggies or cars without the need for manual gate clickers or remembering pin codes.
Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann said the introduction of the LPR would enable homeowners to feel more secure, while adding convenience when entering and exiting the gated community.
“We’re all about lifestyle at Halcyon, but the licence plate recognition technology now puts our communities at the forefront of innovation for the everyday,” Dr Geissmann said.
“This technology will make an already leisurely lifestyle an even more seamless experience and it builds on the many other initiatives already in place.”
Other initiatives at Halcyon Greens include giving residents the option of going ‘off the grid’ through Tesla Powerwall systems that reduce electricity bills.
Dr Geissmann said the incorporation of these types of innovations set Halcyon apart.
“Convenience and security are the cornerstones of Halcyon communities,” Dr Geissmann said. “A home at Halcyon is a lifestyle change for the better, and that’s exactly what we intend to deliver.”
The LPR will be at the front entry gate of Halcyon Greens, as well as the golf club buggy gate entry points.
Homeowners will register their vehicle and golf buggy licence plates with Halcyon so they are listed residents.
Homes at Halcyon Greens are priced from $474,000 to $750,000.
Halcyon Greens on the Gold Coast now have licence plate recognition to enable smooth access for residents through the front gates.
