What is Avigilon Alta (formerly OpenPath)?
Avigilon Alta, formerly known as OpenPath, is a door access control system that lets your customers autonomously unlock doors and access different areas of your space using access cards. Their access is based on their passes, bookings, product purchases, and active contracts.
How the Avigilon Alta Integration Works
The Avigilon Alta integration automatically grants access to your space using Avigilon Alta access groups and several inventory items you have in Nexudus. You can connect Avigilon Alta access groups to:
- desks and offices
You need to create one access group per Nexudus item you want to connect to Avigilon Alta. Each access group should include all the doors customers need to unlock to move around your space.
For example, if you want to connect a resource to Avigilon Alta, you should create a dedicated access group that includes all the doors a customer needs to open in order to get to the resource.
Once you have all the relevant access groups in Avigilon Alta, you can enable the integration in Nexudus and connect each relevant inventory item to its corresponding access group.
Customers who book the connected resources, get passes, or have a desk/office assigned to one of their contracts are then automatically able to open the doors included in the Avigilon Alta access group you connected to the relevant Nexudus items. They are able to unlock the relevant doors using their Avigilon Alta access card.
