Interface Logic Systems' GateKeeper Quality Access Control software is designed for commercial, industrial and residential gated facilities where restricted access is required. Many of our weigh scale customers wanted to extend yard hours at unattended scales without adding to the payroll. GateKeeper is designed to limit which trucks are allowed into the yard after hours, checks them in and then triggers the gate to open. Further security designates which gates can be opened after hours, including the assignment of vehicles to gates to enforce protection by managing access to and within the yard.
The system is designed to interface with Transcore SmartPass Radio Frequency Tag Readers (or other automated vehicle identification systems) to permit automated, unattended and authorized facility access. GateKeeper also interfaces with each gate mechanism, automatically opening the gate when an authorized vehicle or individual is identified.
In a typical scenario, as an approaching is recognized by a detector imbedded in the driveway, the SmartPass Reader captures the vehicle's Radio Frequency Identification Code (RFID). The system searches the Vehicle file and on finding a valid vehicle record, the gate is activated, allowing the vehicle to pass. The vehicle's identification number, time and date of passage are recorded in the database history file.
Each controlled gate is graphically represented, showing its current status. The system operator may override the RFID system to manually open and close gates as necessary. GateKeeper also permits multiple fixed times, on a daily basis, for automatic opening and closing of specific gates. This can be set to open gates for morning and evening rush hours, shift changes or scheduled delivery times. Setting and reviewing the schedule is quick and simple.
When the Notification Flag is set for a specific vehicle, a message will be displayed, indicating that the vehicle has entered. This may be used to enable fleet managers to deliver messages to drivers. The notification message can be set to remain on screen until manually cleared, or to clear after a specified interval. Notification messages can "stack up" on the screen like message slips on a desk.
