Haig Point

About This Project

Haig Point is a is a private community on Daufuskie Island that can only be accessed by boat. Haig point has 700 properties, a Rees Jones designed golf course, beach club and equestrian center. Haig Point has its own private ferry company that transports its members, their guests, and employees to and from Daufuskie and Hilton Head Island.


The Embarkation Center on Hilton Head serves as both a ferry terminal and parking lot, as no cars are allowed in Haig Point – members and guests travel via golf cart or bicycle. The Haig Point Ferry Company has three large ferries, two smaller ferries and two smaller water taxi. Haig Point and JSC Systems worked together to develop a system that would control access and increase safety to this uniquely situated Island. The challenge was to give Haig Point Operations personnel the ability to control who goes where and when while providing the least amount of unencumbered access. The first phase was to install proximity/keypad readers at each Ferry dock to control and record all Ferry riders. In addition proximity/keypad readers were installed at the gates to the South land entrance to the community. Haig Point now has a system that only allows access to authorized members, guests, employees and contractors while providing reports and instant notification of any breach in the system.
