Gate System Interfaces

Interfaces are provided for the two major manufacturers of Gate Systems for the Mini-Storage industry. These two are the Preferred Technology PTI Falcon and the Doug West & Associates DigiGate.

The interface is provided via a data file that is extracted from the system and stored in a format which is compatible with the gate system software. It is the responsibility of the gate system software written by the gate manufacturer to actually load the information to the gate system. This data file is created for all units in the system via the Gate option of Utilities. Each gate system has different features so the information collected varies. See the gate system documentation for a description of each field.

Once the appropriate Gate System is selected in the Gate System option of Configuration, the Gate button will be activated on several screens. From these screens the gate interface can be activated. All information should be loaded from the system to the gate periodically. For instance, after processing Late Charges the entire system should be loaded to the gate. This will update the delinquency status of all units. Those unit with a balance greater than that allowed will be locked out. Likewise, after posting the daily receipts, the information should again be loaded. This will release any unit which no longer has a balance greater than the maximum allowed.

Specific unit information can also be loaded to the gate at the time of a new Rental or Vacancy. This will load the gate system with the access code of the new Rental or remove the access for a Vacated unit.
