Whilst Quoox does not integrate or link to any door entry systems per se, the entry barcode function within Quoox can be used with some door entry systems. This provides the member with an entry barcode or QR-code that they can scan with your door entry system and, if that system grants them access, they can then open the door.
What the Quoox app provides is a static barcode/QR-code with the content of the barcode as you set in the member’s record. For absolute clarity, Quoox does not control access, and the status of the member record in Quoox has zero bearing on whether the door entry system will allow access. The two systems are administered completely separately. It is the same as a printed barcode (like on a traditional membership card), only provided in electronic form.
Setting the member’s access code
You set the member’s access code in the details tab of the member record.
The data that you enter must be valid for the type of barcode selected. For example, some barcode types only support numbers and are of a fixed length.
The value you set is static. It does not change. Quoox simply converts it to a barcode, for the member to hold in front of your entry barcode scanner.
The value that you enter is that required by the door entry system. It should be possible to determine this from the door entry system.
Note: As above, a member’s status does not have any impact on the rendering of the barcode.
Using the access barcode
To use the access barcode, the member access the Access Control screen in the Quoox app, via the menu.
If the member has an access control value set and it is compatible with the type of barcode selected, the barcode will be displayed on the app screen.
The member simply holds the barcode up-to/under your door access control system so it can be read.
If your door access control system reads the code; it confirms it as valid; and the system is set to allow access for that code, then the member will be granted access.
Important: Think of the Quoox barcode as being the same as an old-fashioned membership card with a printed barcode on it. The barcode can be used with the system but the Quoox system is not involved in the granting of the access in any way. The entire administration and control of the door is managed via the access control system that you install. If a member leaves, you will need to remove that member from the door access control system to prevent them retaining access.
