Privacy Gate Upgrades Complete!, March 5, 2021 by Peter J. Kampa, General Manager
Dear Copper Valley Residents,
We are pleased to announce that recent upgrades to the privacy gates and their control systems have been completed, are tested and operational!
Radio Frequency Identification Detection system (RFID).
Residents will now have simple, hands-free gate access with the addition of the RFID system. A small sticker is placed on your vehicle windshield, which identifies your vehicle, communicates that to a receiving device, opening the gate as you approach. The existing gate “clicker” system will continue to function normally if you prefer not to transition to the RFID at this time. More information is available in the Resident Letter linked Here and below.
The CSD now has RFID stickers available. Each Resident will be able to turn
in up to two remote control clickers in exchange for two RFID stickers per household, at no charge. Any additional stickers are $15. In order to exchange or purchase the new RFID stickers you must fill out the new Gate Access Request Form (linked here and below).
Gate Coating Refurbished
For the first time since their installation in the 1990’s, the privacy gates were removed, taken to professional refinishers and a new powder coat finish installed. We expect that the gates will now give us an additional 20-30 years of service and look fantastic.
