How It Works

Manage your Alvarado optical turnstiles in real-time

Turnstile configuration made easy

GateKeeper is not designed to take the place of an access control system. It allows control of virtually all day-to-day operational functions, including designating a passage lane as entry or exit, opening or closing a lane and allowing passage overrides. GateKeeper also provides immediate visual notification of alarm conditions – identifying the turnstile, the time of alarm and the alarm condition.

Automated event scheduler

GateKeeper also includes an Event Scheduler which allows automation of turnstile configuration changes. Intuitive templates are provided to automate the changing of turnstile states (e.g., turn all turnstiles to free exit at 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday; close turnstiles 2 and 4 on weekends and holidays).
