Top 5 Problems Faced By Residents Of Gated Communities And MyGate’s Solution For Them

There are tons of regular everyday issues that the residents of nearly every gated community face. MyGate has made a commendable effort in addressing most of these issues; we have listed out the five most common issues face by residents and how MyGate helps them address each of them;

1. The maid suddenly takes leave for a long period

One of the most terrifying situations faced by the lady of the house is her maid informing that she won’t be coming to work or worse, the maid just takes off without even informing. To deal with this situation, MyGate has an feature called, ‘My Daily Helps’, where one can instantly hire any of the daily helps among the many options that are listed.

2. You are waiting for the delivery package but the delivery guy is stuck at the gate for over half an hour

In huge complexes, the early morning and evening hours at the main gate are at its chaotic best. From office cabs and school buses to house helps and delivery boys everyone is trying their best to get in and out of the community at the earliest. In this scenario, the validation of a delivery boy tends to take the longest especially if the complex has over 1000 houses. To get your delivery package within minutes of it arriving at the gate, the residents can pre-approve the arrival of the delivery boy using the ‘Notify Gate’ feature. Hence once the pre-approval is done, the delivery boy is not re-authenticated and is let into the community instantly, the same can be done with cabs and other service providers too.

3. You have to leave for work but your maid is still working

A lot of times we have to go to work in the morning and leave the house to the maid till she finishes her chores. With MyGate in play, the residents can leave the house without worrying because the maid has to show all her belongings to the guard before leaving the apartment which he will match with the things she had at the time of entry on his guard app. Hence anything extra will be confiscated instantly, unless it is supported by a gate pass given by the residents, an option that can be found in the ‘Notify Gate’ tab.

4. Fire broke out at home and you need to inform the gate

God forbid, fire ever breaks out at a home of a community where MyGate is in play, the residents can use the ‘Security Alert’ feature to inform the main gate about the disaster. An alarm will instantly start beeping on the guard app, indicating an emergency.

5. Cabs are on a strike and you don’t have a driver

This can be a very frustrating situation because a major section of the society depends on public cabs to commute to work. However, if these cabs are ever on a strike then we can hire a driver for a specific number of days using the ‘My Daily Helps’ feature and hire a drive instantly.

MyGate is already deployed at over 100+ communities in India and this number only seems to be increasing. With customers like Adarsh, Shobha, Mantri and Salarpuria among the many others, MyGate is latching its roots in the security space of the gated communities in the country rapidly.
