added Line 20


How do I get new remotes for the gate?

John Brown keeps a supply of remotes on hand, preprogramed with the gate code.  They cost from $20 to $30 depending on style chosen



I am a new resident, how do I get my number programmed into the gate?


Call Kevin Fields to have your number added to the gate phone















How do I open the gate?














Front Gate
When the subdivision was originally laid out, each lot received a lot number.

You give your lot number to your friends or guests and when they drive up to the front gate (Canada Road); they punch in your lot number on the dialpad  and hit the call button. They must add a zero before there lot number at the gate.  for lot 32 you must enter 032
It will call your house, and the guest can tell you who they are, and you can then you hit the number 9 on your phone to open the gate. On some remote type phones, you may have to hit 99.  When you do hit 9, it also hangs up the call, so you can't talk to them after that.

** guests have to push the buttons to call from the console at the gate,sometimes guests just drive up to the gate and call on their cell phones, which won't work.

Guests can also scroll down the list at the gate to your name,,, after they have set you up on the phone list; and then hit the Call Button


Back Gate

The back gate off of Seed Tick automatically opens between the hours of 6am to 6pm monday thru saturday...and sometimes on sunday. When coming into the subdivision you just drive up to the gate about 3 feet from it and it will automatically open. When you leave, pull up to the gate, about 10 feet from it(because the gate opens towards the car) and it should open automatically.

So any guests can come in on Seed Tick during those hours, but outside of those times they have to come to the front gate  (Back gate isn't hooked to the phone system)

You can also use your Remote to open the back gate



Who do I contact if there is a problem with the gate?


Call Floyd Groves for problems with the front gate and John Brown for the Seed Tick gate.  If the proper person is not available call the other.
