Learn how to configure Doorflow Access Control System
What is Doorfow?
Doorflow is an access control system that let's members of your space access the space with their smartphone via NFC or Bluetooth or using their keycard.
Users can use their phone as a key card by installing the Doorflow app which can also be white-labelled Or you can integrate the keycard into your company app using the Doorflow SDK.
Optionally, users don’t even have to take the phone out of their pocket as doors automatically unlock once they approach them. By using the latest Bluetooth LE technology, that is present in all modern phones.
How can the integration between Doorflow and Nexudus Spaces help your space?
Flexible opening times: You're bound to have different plans that allow members to access the space at different times of the day. By integrating both systems you can synchronise the access conditions that each of the plans has in Nexudus with the Doorflow user accounts.
Reports: When you integrate door access control in your space, you'll have a much better idea of who is coming and going and when.
Resources: You can link your Doorflow account with the Resources that you've configured on your Nexudus account. This means you can generate access keys for the Resources from Doorflow when a booking is made via Nexudus.
How can I integrate Nexudus and Doorflow?
First, you'll need to open an account on both of these platforms. If you already have a Nexudus account and you're interested in integrating Doorflow in your coworking space, you can contact Doorflow.The Doorflow team will tell you about the steps you need to take to install the system and enable your account.
Access to the coworking space, is managed by Passes on Nexudus. These are the elements that you need to link on your Doorflow account to grant the access rights that you want depending on the coworkers in your space. On Doorflow, you can use different Groups to manage the different types of Passes or Resources that you've configured on your Nexudus Spaces account and link them later.
Your Nexudus account has some Passes configured by default, such as 24 Hours Pass, Day Pass (8HRS) and Evening Pass, which can be sold to coworkers separately or via a Product or Plan. If you want to link these elements, you have to create three groups in your SALTO KS account: Members with 24 hours access, Members with day access and Members with evening access. Then, when a member accesses the coworking space using Doorflow, the system will check that they have a valid Pass that grants them access.
Once you've got an active account for both platforms, you'll need to configure some settings on each of the accounts. Below, we'll look at the necessary elements for each of them:
When you have a valid Doorflow account, you can enable the integration in your Nexudus account.
