We are in the process of rebooting onto new servers and then updating the apps with new features designed to enhance security and also make these features more easily accessible for users. We anticipate these to take 2-3 months to complete. More new in due course.
An updated version of the Android version of GateKeeper is due to be released in the coming weeks. It adds all the new features implemented since the last version and is currently being exhaustively tested before being released.
The latest updates to GateKeeper offer a wide range of interactive flagging options. This allows homeowners, admins and guards to flag users discreetly to highlight any important issues. It might be something positive like warning about any medical issues or to add important notes for your family or friends. However it can also be used to highlight potentially troublesome visitors like estranged partners, unwelcome visitors or banned vendors. Guards are not only able to see any comments from homeowners but also add their own notes so other guards can see these too. There is no substitute for a diligent guard of course but this feature is an important tool in ensuring the community info is effectively pooled to help guards do their work to the best of their ability.
We are delighted to report GateKeeper is working fantastically well with the Apple Watch. Now you can get a tap on the wrist to make sure you never miss any event at your home, any important news or any social event again. An Apple Watch with GateKeeper let’s you stay in touch in style.
There have been several updates over recent months and there’s another about to go to the app store with a number of new features and improvements added. We are also working hard on admin and user support documentation to ensure that these new features and existing ones are all easy to understand and make the most of. More details of these in due course.
We’re just completing the specifications for version 2 and hope to be able to release it in weeks rather than months. More news and details as soon as a release date is confirmed.
GateKeeper is now also available on the App Store. The app works for both admins and residents and requires a login to be able to gain access. Residents should use the iPhone/iPod version and admins the iPad version. We are delighted to make our innovative technology available to you finally, we hope you find it useful and look forward to improving it with your feedback.
After many years and countless man hours GateKeeper for Android is finally available to download today on Google Play! Of course you can’t get in to enjoy the app until your community signs up to the service, but it’s there now and we can make demo accounts available for anyone wishing to check it out. The iOS version has also been submitted to the App Store but their submission process takes a few days so it’s not likely to appear for about another week. Of course we expect to find the odd bug that we’ll stamp on as fast as possible and we have left off a couple of features we plan to add with an early update, the app is pretty much complete and appears to be working well so we’re looking forward to now finally be able to release it ‘into the wild’.
