- "The TT-8L Gatekeeper is a surveillance droid commonly used to screen visitors at ultraexclusive [sic] locations."
- "Although it isn't much more than a simple photoreceptor mounted on a retractable eyestalk, this droid is adept at keeping out the riffraff so the rich and the superrich [sic] can enjoy their luxurious lifestyles in peace."
A model of security droid consisting of an extending eyestalk with an orange photoreceptor, the TT-8L/Y7 gatekeeper droid was installed in doors and entryways to screen visitors and scan for weapons. Considered obnoxious and invasive, TT-8L/Y7s enjoyed their position of control and were nicknamed "tattletale droids" due to their demeanor in the pursuit of fulfilling their programming. They spoke in a barking metallic voice using an attached speaker and had a grating laugh. TT-8L/Y7s also functioned as holocams.

- ―Jabba's TT-8L/Y7
Manufactured by Serv-O-Droid, Inc., the TT-8L/Y7 was in use across the galaxy for years. During the Clone Wars, one was installed outside the main entrance of Rishi Station, a Grand Army of the Republic listening post, and the Trandoshan scavenger Gha Nachkt had a pair of these droids installed in the airlock of his freighter, the Vulture's Claw. General Grievous, the leader of the Separatist Droid Army, had several TT-8L/Y7s in his fortress on the third moon of Vassek. The Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure had one fitted into the front gate of his palace on Tatooine, which was considered to be one of the most infamous and annoying examples ever in use.
