RFID in a Gated Community

The Challenge

Residential gated communities are growing in popularity. About six percent of Americans live in a gated community and construction of such communities comprises 10 percent of the new home market – and as much as 50 percent in larger metropolitan areas in southern states.

The overwhelming reason people are purchasing homes in gated communities is the sense of security – limiting the volume of traffic in a neighborhood and controlling who has access to the streets. But managing access to these communities presents many challenges.
