    Information

    Boomgate access control determines the format for Access Codes, the Access Code Slip template and interface options.

    Access Slips can be setup as a Form Letter and/or SMS template to provide the entry codes to Guests.

    The options selected and code format will depend on the Access Control interface being used.



    Boomgates are an Access Control module that can be enabled in the Module Market or by contacting RMS Sales.

    The 1-Way SMS module is required to send Access Codes as an SMS.

    Guest and Reservation are default System Labels that can be customised.



    System Administrators will require Security Profile access to use this feature.
