SATEC VisitMe SmartApp

July 2018 Access Control & Identity Management

SA Technologies (SATEC) has launched a SmartApp, the app is a quick and user-friendly interface for estate residents to manage their visitors.

The app has been designed to manage visitors in an innovative and feature-rich manner which puts control of visitors in the resident’s hands. A resident can grant or deny access on any smartphone registered to the system. The operator can interact directly with the resident using the VisitMe scanner.

A call function is included on the scanner for residents that might miss a push notification from the scanner, informing them of a visitor at the gate. The solution provides one point of communication to all of the residents without having different hardware and databases that needs to be updated on different platforms – no more Intercoms required to process unexpected visitors and courier companies.

• By capturing the vehicle and visitor details with a scanner, the HOA and the resident will know who entered and exited the site with a time and date stamp.

• Onsite validation also ensures that the driver and vehicle information matches on exit – the guard is notified of any anomalies before raising the boom.

• This gives estate or complex residents absolute control over their visitors, delivery companies, and contractors.

HOA’s could look forward to no additional fees that need to be processed into the levy accounts, as this solution is rented at one standard rate. The SmartApp and the VisitMe scanner is included into one complete bundle with an SLA that covers repair costs.
