Frequently Asked Questions

We wanted to touch base with our residents concerning the gate access. First, we would like to thank all of our residents who have registered with FrontSteps our new software. If you have not, please take a moment to register by going to and clicking the top left New Resident Register link.

Below you will find details on how gate access works and some answers to frequently asked questions.

How will I get notifications for my incoming guests?


Properly Registered in Frontsteps – When a resident registers for a text or email they will be notified when a guest enters or is denied.

How does the Visitor Management System Work?


How it works at the gate:

When your guest pulls up they will be asked for a destination or address. Your profile will appear and then the gate attendant will ask for an ID to verify access. If they are on the list the gate attendant will record entry and allowed access.

If you visitor is not on the list the gate attendant will call the Primary Number (assigned by resident). If they do not reach a resident, they will call the Secondary number (assigned by resident). If no answer they will try the primary number one more time. If resident answers they will be allowed entry.

NO Answer – the guest will be denied access. This is a cause for backups at the gate.

How do the QR codes work?


A QR code can be sent by the Resident via email or text and is good for 7 days. When they enter the community, they present the QR code, and the gate attendant will scan and grant access. This is the quickest way for your guest to enter.

What is my guest is not on my guest list?


Non-Registered Guests – The gate attendant will try to call the resident. If no info is available, the gates attendants will provide information to the guest on how the resident can get registered and put them on their approved guest list.
