Guest access levels in Space

Overview

Guest access levels are used to group together guests and access points for access to a specific area. For example, you can create a first floor access level for all guests staying on the first floor or a leisure access level for guests to access the gym. You must define the guest access levels before checking in guests.

The following sections describe how to create and associate a guest access level.

Creating guest access levels

To create a guest access level, do the following:

  1. Select Cardholders > Guest access levels. The Guest access levels screen is displayed.

Note that the partitions functionality is license-dependent. See Registering and licensing Space for more information.

  1. Click Save.

Associating guest access levels

After you have created a guest access level, you must associate zones, outputs, and guests with that guest access level. The following sections describe how to associate guest access levels with those entities.

Zones

To associate a zone with a guest access level, do the following:

  1. Select Cardholders > Guest access levels. The Guest access levels screen is displayed.

  2. Click the guest access level that you want to associate with a zone. The Guest access level information screen is displayed.

Click 'Zones' in the sidebarClick 'Zones' in the sidebar

  1. Click Zones in the sidebar. The Zones dialog box is displayed. Note that the dialog box will be blank if you have not yet associated a zone.

'Zones' dialog box'Zones' dialog box

  1. Click Add. The Add dialog box, showing a list of zones, is displayed.

  2. Select the required zone.

  3. Select the appropriate Timetable using the drop-down list or specify whether access is optional. You can also select the Always or Never drop-down list Timetable option. The Always option is selected by default. This means that guests associated with the specified guest access level always have access to that zone, as you have not specified a timetable.

Note that the system calendars do not apply if the Always option is selected. If you select Never, they do not have access to that zone at any time. See Cardholder timetables for more information.

  1. Select Yes or No as appropriate. If you select Yes, the hotel operator can decide whether or not to grant access when they check in a guest. If you select No, access is granted to all guests in the guest access level by default. Note that if you specify an access point as optional, it is displayed as a checkbox option in the Optional facilities panel on the Hotel check-in screen. Optional access is useful for hotels offering various accommodation packages and rates to guests, for example, accommodation with or without spa access.

For security purposes, a guest access level cannot be associated with a zone that contains a room. Guests can only be given access to their own rooms or specific additional rooms at check-in.

  1. Click on Save & Close. The selected guest access level now has access permissions for that zone.

To modify a zone's cardholder Timetable, from the Zones dialog box, do the following:

  1. Select the zone to be edited and then click on Edit.

Outputs

To associate an output with a guest access level, do the following:

  1. Select Cardholders > Guest access levels. The Guest access levels screen is displayed.

  4. Click Add. The Add dialog box, showing a list of outputs, is displayed.

  5. Select the required output and specify whether access is optional. For example, you can give all guests in the guest access level access to the penthouse floor by default or opt to grant guests access to this floor during check-in. See Zones for more information and a description of the steps that you should follow.

It is recommended that you select No in the Optional column for the ESD_#1 and ESD_#2 outputs that are generated by the system. This ensures that guests automatically receive access to the ESD in their room when their key is encoded, and hotel operators do not have to grant this access to individual guests during check-in. See Associated device lists and Zones for more information.

  1. Click on Save & Close. The guest access level is now associated with the output.
