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.
