The GatePass Story — Guest Pass

That one friend, Dolapo.
  1. Pure vibes. A few times, security personnel left things to chance — out of respect/fear, security personnel let in seemingly “unarmed” guests. If security was a big reason for gating guests, how were people missing this giant loophole?;
  2. Vex central. On several occasions, when security personnel stood their ground to confirm access from the resident before giving access, such personnel were exposed to disrespect from frustrated guests;
  3. Gender gate. Access was highly gendered. A high number of female guests and residents were exposed to sexist behaviour from security personnel, including inappropriate remarks and even longer waiting hours;
  4. TMI. In several cases, there was way too much data being collected — which meant a high chance of sensitive data being mishandled, shared with the wrong person or even inaccurate. Keeping a log of names and personal details of incoming guests was not efficient and potentially dangerous to guests so sometimes, guests would leave fake contact details; and
  5. Red alert. Even where communities used general passcodes, in many cases they lacked the proper technology and/or processes for tracking a breach if it occurred on a particular account. If passcodes leaked (as they do sometimes), unauthorized guests could easily enter and exit the community without a real trace.
What we noticed Vs Our solution
  1. No friction. No harassment. Security personnel do not have to leave things to chance — only invited guests get access, with zero wait time;
  2. Digital = Trust. Because the GatePass solution is digital and more private, guests are more willing to provide accurate information and security personnel do not have to worry about losing a logbook of sensitive information;
  3. Work mode. The time and effort security personnel spend on paperwork and admin duty drastically reduces and they get more time to focus on other tasks;
  4. Power to residents. As a resident, you can create a guest pass on the go — no strict time periods, no intercom. You have the keys to your community;
  5. No pass. No entry. It’s easier to track breaches when they occur.
  1. You launch the GatePass app.
  2. You create a guest pass filling in your guest details.
  3. GatePass will generate a code for you to share with your guest.
  4. Your guest gets to your estate gate, they share the code with the security.
  5. Security confirms the code on their end. Voila! Your guests receive access to your community.
