My kids always get the code within a week, and it's not from other kids.
Adults tell each other the new code in loud voices or enter the code in
plain sight.

I disagree with withholding the code from kids anyhow, unless the code is
only needed late at night (that is, if common spaces are unlocked during
the day). It's awful to make younger community members knock for access to
their own common house, in my opinion.

The technical solutions being suggested seem to ignore the human dynamic,
which is that parents will share the codes with their older kids who seem
mature enough, and those kids in turn will share them with their friends
who are younger. I don't know if you can technologize your way out of that
