Inter-zone kiosks are used to move people from one area of your location to another without signing them out first. This gives you the ability to accurately track who is accessing what areas of your location and when.
There are three steps to setting up your inter-zone kiosk:
To use an inter-zone kiosk, you first need to create zones for your location. Zones are the different areas in your location that people can access. You can set these up in many various ways, you can have separate zones for different floors in a building, different buildings on a campus, or specific rooms that you need to track access to.
For full instructions on how to create zones, please see our Helpdesk article Location Zones.
Once your zones are created, you can create an access point with those zones connected to it.
Create an inter-zone only access point
Access points are different areas in your location that can be used to access other areas. The default access point is Main Reception, where people sign into and out of your location, however you can change this and add more as required. Inter-zone access points may be entrances to different floors, buildings, or specific doors that grant access to special areas of your location, e.g. Vault Door.
For full instructions on how to create zones, please see our Helpdesk article Access Points.
To create an inter-zone access point, during the set up of your access point, select at least two Connecting Zones and set Inter-zone Only to Yes.
Create an inter-zone kiosk
Creating an inter-zone kiosk is slightly different from creating a regular Sign In/Out kiosk. There is no printing or questions, including photo capture, on an inter-zone kiosk, and no Deliveries.
To create an inter-zone kiosk, set the Access Point to the inter-zone only access point you created.
This will immediately configure the available kiosk options to the inter-zone only configuration.
Proceed through the available options to the Question Rules tab where you can Save your kiosk.
For full instructions on how to set up a sign in/out kiosk, please see our Helpdesk article Add a sign in/out kiosk.
Zone kiosk layout
Once you've saved the kiosk, you can update the kiosk layout.
You can customize the theme, colors, make the kiosk touchless, update the buttons and instructions, and upload images.

Once you have set up your kiosk, you can activate this in the same way as any other kiosk, by logging in on your kiosk device using the kiosk email and password.
