Logged in users have full access.

If a user who did not logged in your site, he can open home page, but when he try to view any other buddypress content, he will be redirected to optionally URL which can be setting in admin panel.

If you want more pages opened to non members users, you can enter page URLs in “Opened Page URLs” option, you can add any urls (enter one URL per line please) which opened to public, guest can view content of these opened post / pages / stores… and so on, when they view these opened pages,  they will not be redirected to register page, else they will be redirect to your pages which you setting in admin area, for example, register page  or store page or membership payment page… and so on.
