Recently we were asked if we had a way to intelligently grant site visitors a daylocker without having to issue them a building access card or go through the steps of downloading and installing the Smartalock App for their phone.
We considered various approaches to this that were both fast and flexible, along with having the ability to integrate with existing visitor management systems via a simple API interface.
New in version 2.6 of Smartalock software is our first release for supporting Visitor lockers. With just a single piece of information from the visitor (their email address), our system can generate a one-time use QR code that is emailed to the visitor. The visitor then simply taps the visitor button on any Smartalock kiosk and holds up the QR code to be given their locker.
Visitor Codes can be generated via the Smartalock admin portal by the client admin - and many different policies can be applied - ie which locker banks are available for visitors, how long the QR code is valid for etc. Further features are coming again in 2.7 which is as always a free upgrade for our existing clients.
