YOU ARE THE CENTER OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
In Addressgate you can change your neighborhood boundaries at any time. From just your closest nextdoor neighbors, to your whole street plus a few blocks this way and that, or maybe your apartment building, homeowner’s association, subdivision, town, etc.
Adjust your settings in real-time depending on your goals and whom you are trying to reach or listen to. Lost puppy? Post to a big area. Suspicious activity? Maybe limit it to a few blocks. Block party? Your guess is as good as ours.
You are always in control of who can see your posts and what posts you see. No other neighborhood network gives you all this power.
MADE FOR YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORS
You want neighbors to notice problems when you’re not home, to help with a lost pet or life emergency, to opine on local plumbers, gardeners and contractors, and maybe lend that proverbial cup of sugar.
But first they need to know you or at least know of you.
Addressgate helps you connect with your neighbors online instantly one-on-one or in an exclusive social forum setting. You can share photos, post news, events, neighborhood watch warnings and receive instant notifications when something important happens.
They say good fences make good neighbors. If so, Addressgate helps you be a great neighbor … from your side of the fence.
CLUBS ARE PRIVATE GATHERING PLACES DESIGNED FOR SOCIAL SHARING
When you connect your address to the Addressgate network you get instant access to exclusive private clubs made just for you and neighbors like you.
Each club is a private space where you can share ideas, photos, events, news and then comment, like, link-to, etc. Online activities already familiar to you.
Typical clubs can include: the street you live in; condo and homeowner associations; gated communities; developments and subdivisions; official towns, villages, borroughs, cities and counties; congressional and state voting districts; school and church rosters and more.
Create your own special interest clubs
All you need is a simple geographic boundary, a list of street addresses or a list of email addresses. You then send invitations to your list and when they join they are given immediate access to your club automatically.
The technology behind Addressgate clubs is ideal for any group that can benefit from verified address-based membership compliance.
REAL LIFE IS BUZZING ALL AROUND YOU.
JUMP IN TODAY AND BE PART OF IT
Tune in to your Local Happenings and discover the most relevant community events, news and deals taking place around your neighborhood right now.
We monitor top local internet feeds 24/7 looking for interesting stuff...so you don’t have to. We then GEO-locate everything on a map, calculate distances, track event dates and then add our own secret sauce to ensure supremely relevant results for you and your neighbors.
Apply #tag and category filters for even more targeted results.
“Addressgate is the only neighborhood-aware social site doing this. Everyone else wants you to do all the work!”
HELP BUILD A SAFER NEIGHBORHOOD FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Criminals don’t want to see you talking to your neighbors. When you notice something unusual around the neighborhood they want you to keep it to yourself. Actually they are counting on it!
Criminals will not be happy when you and your neighbors start sharing tips and information on Addressgate.
It doesn’t get any easier. One post and all member neighbors are notified in seconds so they can take action or provide instant feedback.
Local police and fire departments can post alerts too. Once they register with us we provide them with secure keys and an encrypted web or REST interface which they can use to keep neighborhood, city and county residents informed, issue civilian notices, etc.
