Front Gate Security

Cameras and Transition to the Fob System

The first of our major summer projects is underway.  Approved by the Community Association Board at the recommendation of our Safety and Security Committee, we have installed front gate security cameras and are switching from the 4-digit codes we have used for years to fobs.  The cameras and fob reader have been installed at the front gate.  We have tested the system and it is working very well.


Our intent is to make this transition smooth for everyone.  We have begun our implementation in a way that we think should prevent anyone from being locked out”, but we have also prepared to handle what we hope will be only a few problems any residents may have.  We will keep you updated as we move through this new system. 


The transition process to the fobs will proceed this way:

  • The codes currently in use will remain in our system until residents pick up their fobs from the Office. All fobs are available in the office and there are two for each unit.  Those codes will remain active while residents “test out” the fobs, but the codes will be deleted on the Monday following the day you pick up your fob.  There after, your access will only be via a fob or through a phone directory (see below).


  • We have had some owners request to have their “home watch person”, "tenant” or other person to pick up their fobs.  The reason for this new system is to increase the security around the property.  Click here for a form that must be completed by the owner prior to us providing a fob to a person other than the owner.  We will only provide ONE fob to this person.  The owner MUST pick up the other fob. 


  • Residents who have used one of a handful of generic codes given by the previous management have been assigned temporary codes until they can pick up their fobs. These temporary codes will be deleted once the fobs are picked up as described above.


Using the screen at the Gate.  The photograph to the right is what the screen at the gate looks like.  Until you get your fob, you need to push HOME key, enter your four digit CODE and then press the GREEN ARROW.  This will allow you to gain access as you have been doing.  

 

Using the Directory.  Everyone, but especially visitors, will be able to look up residents using a directory at the gate. This is not quite ready yet, but as soon as this part of our system is up and running (we hope by the 25thof May) we will provide you with detailed instructions about how to use it.


Our progress with the directory so far:  We have uploaded the directory with the owner last name and phone number. For now, the default for the first name is MR.  This will be shortly changed to your first initials.  Calls from your guest or visitor from the front gate will come across your caller ID as 941-697-0693.  To open the gate for your guest/visitor, (1) answer the phone and (2) press “9” on your phone. The gate will open and your guest will be able to enter. 


An instructional video is in preparation to assist with the use of the new system and will be posted as soon as it is available.  If you have any questions please contact Trish Carver at 941-697-6595.

Grounds Improvements

GOALS FOR 2019

The Grounds Committee's primary goal for 2019 was to enhance prominent focal areas on Cape Haze Resort's property.

      In January with  the approval of the board, we removed worn-out plastic planters around the pool area and replaced them with bright aqua and blue ceramic pots filling with colorful plants. A diseased Foxtail palm tree was removed and replaced with a Terracotta urn  filled with cascading flowers.  The entrance to the pool area planters now have brilliant yellow Hibiscus plants.  Spent palms plants outside the clubhouse were replaced with hardy philodendron called "Hope".  Whenever possible existing plants were saved and relocated.

     February's project was to enhance the two entrance monument walls, a combination of red Hibiscus and dwarf red Ixoras were planted, these should flourish in the full sun and be a cheerful welcome to all entering Cape Haze Resort.

     Presently the committee has recommended enhancement of the 17 driveway islands facing each of the six condo buildings.  Also recommended is adding a Weeping Bottlebrush tree along with Hibiscus shrubs to the central island by the clubhouse.

     Future plans include mulching, refurbishing footpaths, adding shrubs and replacing removed trees on our beautiful C.H.R. grounds.
