How does DoorWatcher operate with Gym Assistant Access Control?

DoorWatcher lets you track activity at your door.  It captures a series of still images over a ten-10 second period with a view from the inside looking at the door entrance.  The DoorWatcher Viewer will display the member info, member photo on file and a series of still photo images from the scanned entry.

DoorWatcher with an added door sensor can track all door opening activity, whether a member scan from the outside, an exit from the inside, or even a door being opened from the inside to allow non-paying members illicit entry.  All door opening activity is saved in logged files that can be accessed anytime by an Administrator.

What is required to operate DoorWatcher? 

Combined with any Gym Assistant access control system, we offer a DoorWatcher system package;

  • DoorWatcher utility license
  • A dedicated specialized CCTV camera
  • CCTV extension cable 25ft (longer cable distance is available to add if required)
  • Door sensor to also capture photo images at the door whenever the door is opened.  This lets you see if members are opening the door for other people.

    • Gym Assistant software version v2.6.0
    • Active Gym Assistant Support & Maintenance subscription
    • PC 8GB RAM Minimum

  • Visually confirm when a member exits your facility

Pictures don’t lie.

Actual quote from longtime Gym Assistant Customer who purchased DoorWatcher in June 2022:  “In the way of feedback, we love DoorWatcher!  We’ve been up and running a couple of months and I’m pretty sure I’ve recouped our investment by charging members for day passes for unauthorized entry. 😊” – August 24th, 2022
