  • What features would you put into your dream keypad/gate controller?

    If you could create your own keypad and gate controller, what feature(s) would you include? What functionality is missing from your current setup?

    Some examples:

    Keypad use
    - Log all keypad activity (successful and failed code entries)
    - Be notified when a code has been entered (active code or not!)
    - Be notified when the keypad has been locked out (3 unsuccessful attempts)
    - Capture and record a picture from the keypad when it is used

    Access Maintenance
    - Be able to add or remove gate codes remotely
    - Add temporary codes (disabled after # of uses or by date/time)
    - Automatically update codes based on customer management software (CMS) changes (add/delete codes)

    Gate Control
    - Open/close gate remotely
    - Notify when the gate remains open longer than xx min
    - Notify when the gate doesn't open when it should
    - Notify when the gate doesn't close when it should
    - Restrict gate access to set hours of the day

    - Gate access report for specified period of time (SPOT)
    - Gate access by gate code for SPOT
    - Unusual gate activity report (TBD)
    - Print out current gate codes (all active, temporary and watched codes)

    Different states have different laws. In CA, there is a legal form to be completed and notarized, or they must have the proper court documents. In the meantime, we overlock the space to ensure that no one gets access until we have the proper paperwork.

    Just spent two nights on the outer edge of Kerrville at a Super 8. It was actually one of the nicer 8's we've stayed in. We did the three twisted sisters near there.
    Love the entire area....
