Free Logon

The Free Logon essentially is a simple and quick way to offer internet access for guests. This manual describes how to configure the Free Logon on the IAC-BOX.

Hint

  • By using the Free Logon, note the Repeat Interval. After a Free Logon ticket expires, the guest device is unable to login again until the Repeat Interval expires.
  • If you use the function Expires after Logout, a Free Logon ticket will Expire as soon as it does get logged off.

Configuration

The Free Logon configuration can be found and activated in the WebAdmin menu Tickets / Templates.

Data Collector

The Free Logon can be used together with the Data Collector module. This module can be activated and configured in the WebAdmin menu Settings / Ticket. Here you can ask for specific data which will then be saved with the Data Collector module.

After clicking on Save you can select the Data Collector profile in the Free Logon configuration in Tickets / Templates.

Additionally after selecting a Data Collector profile for the Free Logon you can also enable the option Show as Sign Up. This will replace the big Free Logon button with a much more small button, which will be lined up with icons from the modules Messaging and Social Login.

Use with PMS System

If you do have a PMS System configured on the IAC-BOX, then it is also possible to enable the Free Logon to be shown in the PMS ticket selection. In order to do so, activate the function PMS Authentication required in the Free Logon configuration. The Free Logon will now be listed after guests authenticated with their PMS data.

Example 2:

  • Time Credit: 50 minutes
  • Ticket Limit: unlimited
  • Max. Idle Time: 60 minutes
