Marinas have a responsibility for protecting boat owners, guests, and boats. Unauthorized people on the docks are a security threat and liability. Managers need to do everything they can to prevent theft, assaults, and vagrancy. And do it all without inconveniencing customers.
So what are your choices?
- Issuing physical keys to everyone isn’t practical. Keys are easily shared or lost and re-keying a marina security gate every time a key is missing is very expensive.
- Keypads are another solution, but once the PIN # is out there, everyone has it so you have no idea who has accessed the boat dock gates.
- Cardkey systems offer higher security than keypads but they are expensive, they require network connections, people still share card keys and now they can be easily cloned.
With VIZpin, your phone is your key!
The VIZpin Solar Access Control Kit provides higher security in a convenient, affordable solution. You control what docks and amenities users can access and when. You can issue temporary Smartkeys to guests and workers and revoke them just as quickly. Best of all, with VIZpin you can keep permanent records of who was on your dock and when.
