Internet-Independent Visitor Access:

Attendants continue to access the database as it was at the moment of service loss and all transactions to and from the gate computer are immediately synchronized when Internet service is restored.

Guest Pass Printing:

Managers can configure passes to the unique needs of their communities without the requirement for special programming. Printer options include direct thermal, thermal transfer and Dymo™ for building lobbies. Print a pass with just one keystroke! Return visitors can be tracked via an optional Bar Code on the pass. Property directions appear on the pass. New design templates coming soon.


Residents can choose to receive emails or text messages when guests are added to their account or when passes are issued for their address. Abuse can be detected immediately and action taken from anywhere there is an Internet connection.


A simple two-step process allows residents to create a unique and temporary electronic visitor pass for their guests. An email will be sent to the guest containing a QR code visitor pass. Upon entry to an attended or unattended gate, the guest simply scans the QR code from their smartphone to access the community.
