Avoid A ‘Home Alone’ Situation With The Gatekeeper App

Remember Harry and Marv? The tiny short-tempered man and the tall dumb one, who terrorised the living daylights out of a naughty 8-year-old called Kevin McCallister?

Yes. We’re talking about the plot of the 1990 blockbuster movie, Home Alone, where the bad guys ultimately end up paying for their crimes, behind bars. While the movie served its purpose of entertaining people and raking in some big moolah, the depiction of events hold no semblance in the real world.

Now, imagine a country like India where there are thousands of Harrys and Marvs – probably a lot more deadlier – goofing off in every major metropolis, and most probably in an area surrounding you too. How do you keep your apartment and your kids from witnessing or being victims to rancid, violent Home Alone-esque occurrences?


Gatekeeper Home Alone


The answer lies with choosing an effective and efficient security system of course, like the Gatekeeper app by ApnaComplex, one of India’s leading security solutions providers. It’s quite like a benevolent all-seeing eye watching over your kids. Here is a scenario on how Gatekeeper can effortlessly handle it without the guard having to break a sweat.


The Trespassing And The Break-In

Remember when Kevin, despite all his best efforts, could no longer hold the “There are people in the house” act? Well, the criminal twosome from the Wet Bandits gang decided to invite themselves into the McCallister household, which spelled more trouble for the obnoxious little kid.

However, when you get Gatekeeper, the visitor tracking app, there is no chance of random strangers gaining unauthorised access to your apartment complex, let alone your doorstep.




The All-Seeing Guard

For a visitor to enter your apartment complex, they will need to provide brief details of the resident they are going to visit and their door number at the security booth. For the information to be rechecked correctly with the resident, the guard has the option to then send a text message or call the resident and confirm whether they are expecting a visitor.

Once the authenticity (or the apparent lack thereof) of the visitor’s request is ascertained, one can figure out whether a visitor is around for the right reasons or not!

Having a high-security feature in the form of a user-friendly app will not just help you avoid the Home Alone situation, but will also play a key part in safeguarding the well-being of your kids and your entire family.

Announcing Staff Leave Management and Weekly Off Management in ApnaComplex

We are happy to announce that now ApnaComplex supports Leave Management and Weekly Off Management of Maintenance Staff.

ApnaComplex was first to introduce attendance tracking capabilities that is tightly integrated with bio-metric devices couple of years back. This has helped several societies tighten the security of their respective complexes and also ensure payments are done as per the attendance. As a natural extension of this, we now offer committee members and estate managers to track the weekly offs and leaves of the maintenance staff.

With help of the leave management module:

  • Society can now maintain the Holiday list for the year.
  • For maintenance staff, weekly offs can be captured to help in creating a schedule for the maintenance staff.
  • Committee / Estate Manager can mark full day or half- day leaves for any of the staff – with an ability to update/cancel the leave.
  • The holidays, weekly offs and leaves can be viewed in a calendar view by the committee.

The holiday list of the society can be viewed by all the members of the portal and the admin features are available for Staff Admin and Community Admin roles.

Go to Directory->Maintenance Staff and you can see the “Manage Holidays” button to manage add/update/delete holidays. You can also spot the icon for managing weekly offs and leaves in the staff listing below against every staff.

This module is available for all customers who are subscribed to Standard Management and Ultimate Editions.

Yet another feature by ApnaComplex.com to eliminate paper based records and aid automation of your society office!
