The Guardian Access Control system was developed over years of engineering research and valuable customer feedback. The focus was to offer the most stable keypad in the self-storage industry while providing the innovative features facility owners expect. 

Benefits

QuikStor offers a seamless integration between its express management software and the new Guardian Series system that allows two-way communication, showing real-time gate activity and reporting in the management software. The company’s robust keypad features allow any facility, on any budget, to have an affordable access solution. 

Difference From Competitors

QuikStor is so confident in its Guardian Series that every keypad includes a seven-year warranty, including coverage for lightning. The company’s smart keypads process all requests internally, without the need to communicate with the office. If an operator’s computer is off or a data wire to the office is severed, tenants can continue to access their belongings. 

30 Seconds in an Elevator With a Prospect

Every storage operator should be using access control to protect his property and the belongings of his tenants. The Guardian Access System is the complete package for any size facility, offering the perfect balance between long-term stability and modern features. 

Other Things Readers Should Know

All Guardian keypads are modular by design, meaning an operator can mix and match features to best suit the needs of his facility. Each keypad comes standard with an 80-character LCD display and two-way intercom speaker. In addition, the following options can be added on at any time: proximity reader, magnetic card reader, pay-at-the-gate, color pinhole camera or wireless data module. 

Future Plans

QuikStor is already in development on its second generation of the Guardian Control Panel, which will add cutting-edge features. For example, the “1-Click Diagnostic” will keep a facility operator informed of the overall health of his access system and allow him to address potential issues before they happen. 

A QuikStor Customer Says...

“I have lost a lot of electrical hardware to lightning. But I haven’t lost a single QuikStor Guardian keypad since they were installed two years ago. Before that, I would lose several keypads each year,” said Steve Chaires, owner of Advanced Moving & Storage in Tallahassee, Fla.
