The standard Passport app also has settings to let you customize the colors used on the app. Nexudus uses the main color of the logo defined in your location by default, but you can define any other color. As with any other Passport settings, you can choose different colors for each of your location.

Primary Color

The primary color is used as the background color for selected or highlighted menu options.

Secondary Color

The secondary color is used as the font color on elements using the primary color as their background.

Your primary and secondary color must be contrasted enough for optimal display.

For example, if your primary color is red and you secondary color is brown, you need to pick shades that offer enough contrast to be legible.

Tertiary Color

The tertiary color is used as the font color for unselected menu options and elements. It's also used as the app's general font color.

Access Control

If you use your own access control system, you can add a custom page on the Passport app to let your users unlock doors using the app.

In order to use this feature you need to define a shared secret within your access control system and then add it to the corresponding field on the Admin Panel.

Push Notifications

App Download URL

Automation Tiles
