There are advantages of living in a gated community.
A high security level, as well as controlled access.
Gated communities are better protected against burglar, because going through a security gate is not such an easy task. Visitors must be granted the access, so there is less unwanted traffic of any kind, in these communities, so there will be no more salespersons directly at your door. The gate is also supervised by cameras or by a guard, who records the entries and the exits. Even so, there is no guarantee that you will never experience crime or burglary in a gated community; it is just that the probability is significantly lower.
The security team has a better familiarity with fellow residents.
Daily trips in and out of the community gives you and our gated security team the chance to get to know each other. This connection helps all of us. People living in a gated community show a better sense of community, translated into awareness of strangers.
Gates reduce vehicle speed, resulting in more safety for pedestrians.
When required to stop your car at one of our community gates before entering, requires the driver to stop and focus. Becoming aware of the environment will help all of us keep our neighbors safe.
