What are Hardware Connections? 

When using Manual Check-in or when implementing Hardware for Access Control like barcode scanners or card readers, you have to create a connection in your online portal.

A connection is a setting in the portal that has 2 purposes: 

  • Reflect your business rules for access control in your facilities.
  • Establish a communication interface between the portal and the hardware that you will use for the Access Control.


How to Create a New connection

To create a new connection:

  • Go to your portal > System Settings > Hardware & Integrations.
  • Click on New to create a new Connection
  • Set a name and a description (Optional)
  • Save the connection


Advanced Settings

  • Client screen

When using Hardware connections, and therefore a piece of hardware for the Access Control, you get the option to enable a secondary screen that will display relevant information to the client. You can choose whether clients see how many credits they have left; if they have outstanding invoices; when the contract expires or if they had their birthday in the last couple of days. 


Example of a client with Granted Access:


Example of a Client with Denied Access:



  • Employee Screen

What you show to your client, you can also display on your employee screen.

Example of a view from the Employee screen:



  • Business Rules

Here you can set the restrictions and conditions members must meet be allowed or denied access to the facilities. There are 2 ways to handle business rules, Grant Access with Warning and Deny Access
