While this may seem extreme, GateGuard must be able to update and repair the device, and access the building, and ensure the safety and reliability of the service as best as possible, regardless of building politics, board meeting schedules, and the like. It is simply not safe or realistic to wait for board meetings to update and secure a building’s access control, or to have the entire building held hostage by one shareholder or board member, for example.

We may remove any and all other access control devices on all your buildings.
For example, not not limited to, if you run a “2 and 20” fund and purchase 50 buildings, we have the right to attach our device to all 50 buildings. If you then invest in another building, we have the right to remove that building.
“You” in this instance shall mean you personally, the entity with which you sign this agreement, any management company, investment company, fund, holding company, trust, partnership, family office, informal partnership, party-round, and the like associated with you and your property and/or properties. In the event you begin a new management company or fund, these terms and this agreement shall copy-over and apply to it. That is, you cannot claim that of, for example, 60 buildings you own, “Well, these 30 buildings are owned and managed by Company A, but these 30 buildings are Company B and not part of this contract.” As long as you are associated with both companies, A and B are entirely bound by this agreement through your signing up. This is to protect us against the rampant and frequent “shell company” games played by real estate investors. If you have any connection directly or through any company you own in full or part or as an investor, you are signing that company to this agreement as well.
38. Right to surveil our devices & operation
In order to ensure the security of our staff, equipment, team, vendors, courier partners, network, and to understand and improve the usage of our systems and operations we may install cameras to monitor the usage of our system and building activities. We may also ask our staff, employees and contractors and partners and vendors, to wear body cameras or recording devices to ensure safety.
We have the right to place and install cameras in any and all public spaces and frontage of your building at our discretion. In the event of vandalizing of any of our equipement, we have the right to charge you for the installation and cost of our camera system and cameras (as listed on our website and in our terms).
Our staff and vendors have the right to wear body-cameras, audio recorders, and similar devices on their person when accessing your building, including when entering utility rooms, offices, private spaces, public spaces, units, and the like and you agree you will disclose and gain consent for that when asking us to access any private spaces. You agree that when you invite or provide us access to private spaces you are representing that you have gotten such permission for us to to access these spaces wearing such recording devices.
39. Existing Contract Pricing Applies (This does not apply to new customers)
For existing customers and those who previously placed orders or made verbal or written agreements to place any orders with GateGuard INC: In the event you sign up a building(s) for which you requested an invoice(s) or otherwise communicated that you would place an order, in writing or verbally, in email, messenger, chat, phone, or other means, or you have an existing contract with us, the pricing for devices shall remain the current pricing ($5600 per device, or $3600 for 3 or more devices) and be due upon installation. However, the updated terms shall also apply. For example, if you previously told us you would order 11 devices, were invoiced for them, and then failed to pay, and sign up for this new free-device order, you still owe the full cost of the devices invoiced because we already expended significant cost and risk associated with acquiring and adding those devices and your actions (placing false orders, failing to make full payments, etc.) caused significant difficulties and damages to us. Us installing devices or doing business with you is not a waiver of claims of any damages.
