Friday, January 15, 2021 TimeTec 0 Comments

In this previous article (https://bit.ly/3giwYZe), we already show how to send invitations and how visitors fill in their information, then receive a QR code.
This article provides some questions on determining whether the QR Code invitation can be used one time or multiple times and how to check the QR code validity.

Question 1 - What are the differences between QR code for invited visitors and normal visitor walk-in registration?

Invited Visitor
Walk-In Visitor
Provided with a QR Code
Does not have a QR Code
The QR code already have visitation details (Car Plate Number, Street Name, Unit Number)
The visitor must inform the correct details to the security guard (Street Name. Unit Number, Owner/resident name)
Does not need intercom/permission from owner/resident
Guard needs intercom to get a permission from owner/resident

Question 2 : How to determine whether the QR code has one time or multiple times validity?
This is a one-time QR code having only one date and time

This is a multiple times QR code, having a start and expiry date.

Question 3 : When a resident invitation is scheduled at 3PM, must the visitor come sharp at 3PM or it doesn’t matter?
Yes, the time range applies for Check-in based on the invited time. 

By default, the time range is 1 hour before and after the scheduled time. However, the i-Neighbour admin can change to a maximum of 6 hours. So if the time is set at 3PM, it also means that the visitor can come between 2PM to 4PM. And in the invitation link also, the  QR code validity is stated. 

Question 4 : What happens if the visitor comes too early or too late, out of QR Code time range.
If a visitor comes to the guard house, but the QR code is already out of time range, the tablet located at the guardhouse cannot read it.
For example, this is a message shown on the guardhouse tablet.

For the solution - visitor can ask resident/owner to send a new invitation/new QR code or security guard can register using “Walk in registration”

Question 5 - If today a visitor has already checked-in using a QR Code, can he use the same QR code on the next day?
For one time QR Code, it can be used 1 time only.
For Multiple In Out, he still can use it until the date expires.
If a visitor gives an expired QR Code the guardhouse tablet will show this message:
