On Solid Ground is a family owned and operated RV and boat storage property. The owners, who are RV and boat owners themselves, know that security is paramount and easy access is key for their customers.
The property has one motorized gate for vehicle and trailer access and was using a traditional keypad access solution. The keypad was conveniently located on the driver side for vehicles, however, customers driving RVs had to get out and walk around them to punch in the code, and customers pulling wide boats and trailers had to carefully maneuver them to get close enough to the keypad to not have to get out. In both instances, the stopped vehicles clogged the staging area before the gate. In addition, it frequently rains in the summer when boat owners use the facility the most, making it a nuisance for customers to roll down their windows or exit their vehicles to access the keypad.
On Solid Ground installed a VIZpin reader to operate the motorized gate along with its original keypad solution. They quickly realized the benefits, too. Co-owner Thomas Martucci comments, “VIZpin is a great product and exactly what we needed – simple to use, which we knew would be attractive to our customers. In addition, anyone can give their keycode away, but no one gives their smartphone away, so we know that when Joe’s VIZpin key was used, it was Joe in the facility.”
