SmartGuard is designed to replace your old, outdated PC-based guard system with a modern, cloud-based system. It assists your security personnel in making quick and informed decisions on both scheduled and unregistered guests at guarded points of entry. This results in a more seamless entry process for visitors. The system works on smartphones, tablets and PC’s (anything with a web browser), offering you complete flexibility.
Tap2Open SmartGuard securely expedites the entry process for vendors and guests of residents in communities with manned gates. Residents can schedule and send invitations to their guest’s from their smartphone or PC. Waiting in line to be cleared by the guard is a major inconvenience for your guests and a complete waste of time. With Tap2Open, guests with invitations can go directly through the (resident) gate without waiting for the guard!
If a guest doesn’t have an invite or is required by the community to check in with the guard, guards are able to quickly search through all active invitations by resident name, address, or guest name. After the invite and visitor have been confirmed, guards can grant access to guests at the touch of a button. In the event of a surprise or unregistered visit, guards can search the community database to contact a resident. Guards can even schedule guest invitations on the behalf the of the residents.
Through smart design, the system also has many more advanced features…
- Invitations and entries can be viewed immediately by guards at all gates
- Works offline, so if the internet connection fails, the guard can see all invitations
- Supports custom data collection (license number, car make and model, etc.)
- Supports phonetic searches (it will find the name even if spelled incorrectly)
- Guards can open any gate
- Works seamlessly with both guarded and non-guarded gates
- Unmanned gates can be closed to visitors at certain times
- Tap2Open can be used to replace guards or eliminate shifts during slow periods
SmartGuard works on any device with a web browser, making it ideal for communities with multiple entry points, roving guards and remote access. Because it is cloud-based, no IT support is required, and the system is always up to date.
For communities with multiple entrances, Tap2Open makes entry much more convenient for guests. Because guests let themselves in, gates that
were only for residents now can be utilized by guests. Because some guests will use alternate entrances, the lines for any unannounced guests will be much shorter, too.
Delivery drivers (and guests) are sometimes routed to unmanned gates that they cannot use. Unfamiliar with the area, sometimes the drivers will try to enter through the exit and end up popping their tires! With Tap2Open, the drivers would be able to use back gates as well. They could open the gate themselves when they arrive!
Smart. Seamless. Secure
