About inter-zone kiosks

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:

  1. Create zones in your location
  2. Create an inter-zone only access point
  3. Create an inter-zone kiosk

Step 1: Create zones

To use an inter-zone kiosk, first, 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.

Once your zones are created, you can create an access point with those zones connected to them.

Step 2: 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 the 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.

To create an inter-zone access point, during the set up of your access point, select at least two connecting zones, and select Inter-zone as the Access Point Type.


Step 3: Create an inter-zone kiosk

Creating an inter-zone kiosk is slightly different from creating a regular sign in/out kiosk. There are no printing, photo capture, or delivery settings.

To create an inter-zone kiosk, select an inter-zone access point from the Access Point field. 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.

Next step: Once you have set up your kiosk, you can activate it in the same way as any other kiosk. Log in on your kiosk device using the kiosk email and password.
