Security Tips

  • If you leave a vehicle parked in your driveway, do not leave the garage door opener inside it. If the opener is built in to your vehicle, then use the LOCK button on the button panel inside your garage to lock the garage door from the inside.
  • Keep your garage door closed when not in use. If you crack the door for ventilation, be aware the door can be opened and your premises accessed by an intruder.  If our security staff sees your garage door is open at night, they will come to your front door to remind you to close it. Whenever our security staff makes contact with residents after hours they will park directly in front of your house with the emergency lights on, so that you will know who is knocking on your door.
  • No HOA gardeners or security/alarm company people should ask to enter your home without your prior invitation. Solicitations: Anyone coming to your door soliciting is required to have a "Solicitors License" from the City of Mesa. Ask to see it, if they don't, notify the Mesa Police Department and our Security.
