I've heard rumors about cameras at the gates, but I've been told by gate attendants there are no cameras.
This gate attendant needs to read the POA Bulletin...........there are cameras!

To bad the gates were not noticed before a home was purchased in TV.

With a little effort I found one (of many) comments on cameras at the gates.
Go to Property Owners, Association of Florida and do a search on gate cameras.
Yes, Virginia there are cameras!

Gate connectivity is scheduled to be completed
in October, 2014. The cameras will be
able to pick up license plates and facial images,
including those of golf cart drivers.
Signs will be installed indicating that the
Community is Under Surveillance

They were noticed. That's the point of the gates. Unfortunately, for a lot of residents it's not until after purchasing a home, that they are told they are only for show and could be done away with at any time.

Otherwise known as making a decision without doing the research and asking the questions. Then, when they move in they jump on here to detail everything they didn't know and want to change.

Leave well enough alone . That is my outlook. There are more important issues in ones life to look at. At least one would hope so,

Do you really think the powers that be care? Why should they? They don't have to use the gates a million times a day like we do.
Agree.....if we MUST have gates, why not decals on the cars to open them like an IPass. The nuisance of having to roll down a window, time it takes to go up and down, possibly raining, etc. are all good reasons NOT to have to roll down a window to gain entrance. Some of you can hold your pass up against the window without rolling it down but our SUV is too tall and will not read the card through the window. It's all about convenience! Anyway, how much could those stickers to attach to a car cost?

Stickers, probably very little. The readers on the other hand, ?
BTW, why the hurry?

"...only for show..."?

Simply not true. Gates can (and TV's do) serve other purposes that those of a fully gated community. Safety for carts, traffic calming, crime deterrence...just to name a few.

What ever you all decide to do with the gates is fine with me. If the gates are eliminated I would be interested in buy some of the guardhouses to convert into rental homes.

I'm always amazed (entertained) about the negative comments over gates. Gates.

It's good news that cameras and "under surveillance" signs are now at all gates.
