No guards, a gate with RFID and also a keypad.
I don't want to get too detailed but our place is five miles up at the end of a non-through road. Keep in mind there's no through traffic and the fucking cops sit just outside our gate up the road a bit (and it's only about 80 houses) at 5am when it's pitch dark (so you can't see them) just to see if they can catch someone rolling the stop sign when exiting the development. Our development is all of about 80 houses and it's really, really quiet and boring up at our place...part of why I bought there. Busy body pricks just like to camp out and follow people in when not writing bullshit tickets.
