Many states are opening back up after the first wave of the COVID scare, but other states are still struggling with a more cautious approach by governors and mayors. Fitness and Health clubs have been especially hard hit—many have been forced to close their doors or strictly manage the number of people who are in a facility. The same holds true for schools, training studios, and educational facilities.
Money Movers, Inc. a leader in the Member Management / Gym Software provider field, has been critically aware of these problems since we provide our software to Gyms, Health Clubs, and Personal Training Studios, as well as Educational Providers and even Hospitals. Working with Logical Developers, we already had developed the GateKeeper 24-hour access hardware that allowed clubs to check-in members using the AccessPass phone app and the member’s digital device. But now we have taken this one step further and added several new features that will be of great value to your facility.
Our updated 24-hour Access device, GateKeeper, now has mask recognition, tailgating, and maximum occupancy features.
Using front and side-mounted cameras, Gatekeeper can recognize whether the member is wearing a mask or not. This allows you to verify that all members and clients seeking access to your facility are wearing a mask. When GateKeeper is switched for “no mask, no entry” the hardware denies access.
GateKeeper also counts the number of people entering the facility and if more than one person tries to enter on a single scan notification is sent to the local administrator at the point of entry.
The mask scan function can also be set to “maximum occupancy” and once that number of occupants in a room is reached GateKeeper will not allow entry to the room. Perfect for situations where you must keep the occupancy of a facility to the mandated number—workout rooms, classrooms, meeting rooms, etc.
