Introducing five new integrations that streamline lobby security
Safeguarding your workplace while creating a welcoming, seamless experience for guests is no small task. Screening visitors, issuing access badges or credentials, and securely sharing your Wi-Fi network often has to be done manually with separate, incompatible tools.
At Envoy, we believe that securing your office—starting at the front desk—should be simple. We’re excited to share that Envoy now connects with more of the tools you rely on to keep your workplace safe: Visual Compliance for restricted party screening, C-CURE and Openpath for access control, and Ubiquiti Unifi and Mist for Wi-Fi provisioning. Each tool builds more security into your sign-in while automating much of the manual work that comes with using multiple tools. These integrations are available to companies on our Enterprise plan.
Screen visitors against restricted parties lists with Visual Compliance
Whether for compliance or safety reasons, there are certain individuals you don’t want coming into your workplace. Using a block list is the first step toward keeping out unwanted visitors. However, you may also want to check if visitors appear on external lists of restricted parties (like terrorist, wanted criminals, or export-related restricted parties lists).
Now you can connect Envoy to your Visual Compliance account to automatically check and alert your team if visitors appear on lists of restricted parties. Your team can then take discreet action before there’s a problem.
To get started, head to your security settings page and click “Install” next to Visual Compliance.
Issue access credentials seamlessly with Openpath and C-CURE 9000
If you use an access control system, you or your team are likely inputting each visitor’s information into your system to issue credentials manually. Now you can pass each visitor’s information directly to your Openpath or C-CURE 9000 dashboard when they sign in. Your team can then quickly issue credentials and see which areas the visitor accesses right from their C-CURE 9000 or Openpath dashboard. With the Openpath integration, visitors will receive a link where they can unlock doors right from their smartphone.
To connect Envoy to your Openpath or C-CURE 9000 account, head to the integrations page in your Envoy dashboard.
Share your Wi-Fi with visitors automatically with Ubiquiti UniFi and Mist
“What’s your Wi-Fi?” is often the first question visitors ask when they sign in. But, sharing your one-and-only guest Wi-Fi password makes it easy for people to access your network once their visit has passed.
Connect your Ubiquiti Unifi or Mist account to Envoy to automatically share a unique Wi-Fi password with visitors once they’ve signed in. You can see how visitors are using your Wi-Fi network in your Ubiquiti Unifi or Mist dashboard and, once the visitor signs out, deactivate their code instantly.
To connect Envoy to your Ubiquiti Unifi or Mist account, head to the integrations page in your dashboard.
