 How to open the gates at the Club:

First of all, your membership needs to be activated then the Clubhouse Manageress will load your cell number onto the access control system.

Then go onto the Google Play Store and download and install an app called G-REMOTE on to your phone. When your number is in the system, “Zandvlei Sports Club” will show up in the device list.

When you tap on this one, an “Entry” and “Exit” button will show on the screen.

Tapping on a button sends a signal to open the gate. Sometimes it doesn’t work first time because the system is updating but after a few more attempts the signal usually goes through.

It is also a good idea to save the number 063 942 6126 on your phone. If the app is not working at all, you can phone this number, and when you are connected dial either 1 for entry or 2 for exit.
