How long does an installation take and will it affect normal operations?

Much of the installation work is performed after-hours to avoid any disruption. In cases of 24-hour store operation, every effort is made to safeguard patrons and minimize any potential disturbance. The average installation is completed in two days. Some installations require more time due to the complexity and/or scope of the implementation.

What is the range of the CartKey and is it adjustable?

The CartKey signal has a maximum signal range of four feet and a minimum signal range of 18 inches. The CartKey is designed and engineered so store personnel can quickly and easily unlock or reset Gatekeeper wheels without any manual intervention or physical strain. The maximum range was set at four feet in order to provide an optimum balance between convenience and control; setting the maximum range at greater than four feet could result in personnel inadvertently locking nearby carts.
