How to create a temporary access code

Setting Up Temporary Access Codes

You can provide a temporary access code for visitors that require access to your facility for one day only. This feature is primarily for auction winners, vendors, or inspectors. In addition, temporary access codes are only used by facilities that utilize Nokē Screens/keypads.

The temporary access code is valid for 24 hours only starting at midnight. This way, the facility manager sends the visitor the temporary access code, which provides them access to the facility for that day only. When the temporary access code expires at midnight, the visitor no longer has access to the facility, and the facility manager does not have to worry about revoking access. If the visitor requires additional access to the facility, the manager just sends them the following day’s temporary access code.

To enable temporary access codes,

  1. From the Web Portal, click the Settings tab, and then click the Facility tab on the Settings page.

  2. Scroll down to the Device Settings section, and then click the Temporary Code drop-down arrow and select On.

Note: If the Temporary Code is already set to On, click Off and then click On again to reset it.

3. Click the Home tab to view the Temporary Code widget. If the widget is not displayed, you’ll need to add it to the dashboard.

4. Now the Temporary Code is displayed on your dashboard.
