  • Gate Access Control / Mobile Apps

    At our managers meeting today we were talking about apps & gate access controls. I see Spider Door and PTI that have mobile apps for payment and the ability for customers to access the facility with their phone and not use the key pads. I guess I knew it existed but we just don't have it but now some of our competitors do. Does anyone have a company that they use & like or dislike? Any problems with a web / cloud based system? We do not have individual door alarms.
    The future depends on what you do in the present.

    At another facility I managed, we gave the app and information to our people who drove RV's so they didn't have to block the entrance to get out and put in their codes as the parking for RV's was added on later after the posts were dug and put up for the access box. It worked very well as they could use their own back entrance and not block the driveway for others going in or out. We used PTI.

      Check out QuikStor. They also have a gate control app.

        I believe OpenTech Alliance has an app too, but you might want to check that out.

          You have several options available for gate control with apps. I suggest multiple quotes. Check out Stor-Guard as an option.

            Just a small correction to the above statement. Our app does not directly take payments for units. (The logistics of doing this for multiple variations of card processors and management software providers would be too much). It does have a feature where it will open the phone's default browser and direct it to the specified web page that takes online payments for your organization.

                  Good feedback, I really like the Levitons and could see putting automation in place to handle it. I could use If this then that to turn on or off the outlet. The drawback is that the outlets all have a manual option to turn it on. I think using IFTTT can just shut it off it detected every 5 min or...

                  I have some of them on my property. Each on a separate 20 amp breaker. I charge a $20 per month premium for the power. I have an automated kiosk for rentals but those units are blocked off in the management software so that you need to meet me to rent them.

                  So far those units have been...

                  That seems like a great idea-though place them somewhere they won't get damaged when a senior citizen inevitably knocks into one side of the other. I've had many phone calls for powered spaces so they can run dehumidifiers or a trickle charge for their battery....
