Glenmore Community Access
Access to the Glenmore community is controlled through our gatehouse guards and our automated gate systems. All access to Glenmore requires authorization by a resident, renter, or similar.
Residents, renters, club members, and certain employees can register with our gatehouse and be approved for vehicle access through our right-side automatic resident gate. This gate uses advanced camera imaging to detect vehicle license plates. Use the form below to register for this access.
Visitors, contractors, deliveries, and other short-term guests can enter Glenmore using the left-side entry lane, stopping by the gatehouse, and talking with the guard on-duty. Guests must be authorized by a resident, renter, or other contact.
Residents, renters, and certain other authorities are given broad privileges for authorizing and admitting visitors into our community. Such privileges carry a responsibility. When you register with the gatehouse, Glenmore grants you an "account" in our gatehouse access system:
For the best experience and ease of use, we encourage you to download the TEKControl Visitor Management App for your smartphone, tablet, or other web-enabled device.
Alternately, you can access your account by linking to the TEKControl Web Portal at this URL: https://webapp.tekcontrol-site.com/.
There are many benefits to using the app. With more than 900 residences in Glenmore, the volume of phone and email messages to our gatehouse is often quite heavy causing delays in our staff responding to you and is prone to errors. By using the app, you will help our Guards and Supervisor better manage gatehouse traffic. Your GCA Board of Directors and Security Committee highly recommend you download and make use of the app.

About the Gatehouse
Glenmore's gatehouse is managed by GCA's Security Committee to ensure that all vehicles and pedestrians entering the community are appropriately authorized and do not pose an obvious security threat to the community. Our gatehouse is staffed 24x7 by professional and certified security guards provided by Securitas, a nationally recognized security contractor.
Our residents are a critical element of Glenmore's security posture. Residents are entrusted with keeping a list of 'permanent guests', those relatives or others whom you trust to be admitted to the community at any time without prior notification to the gatehouse. This is a sacred trust and we ask you to responsibly manage this list.
Visitors or contractors visiting your home who are not on your permanent list should be communicated in advance to the gatehouse by email or phone. The guard on duty is required to call the residence before allowing entry to any visitor not authorized in advance.
Bear in mind that the gatehouse staff are not police, are not armed, and are not able to arrest or detain suspicious individuals. The Albemarle County Police Department will provide support for these situations. However, the gatehouse staff will report suspicious activity to the police, and will only permit vehicles to enter the community if they are either known to them or previously authorized as a visitor or guest by a resident.
Please note that any suspicious or criminal activity should be reported first to the police using 911 - do not expect the gatehouse to so on your behalf. You should then inform the gatehouse.
