With our wifi integrations, your members will be asked to log in with their Cobot email/password to get online. This way, only authorized members of your space can access the internet.
For members with limited plans/day passes, Cobot will automatically use a day pass every time a members goes online, and prompt them to buy more passes when needed.
Cobot also automatically tracks the usage/capacity of your space, which means that you will be able to see how many people are at your space and when they come in. This allows you to optimize your plans and number of members.
How It Works
After you set up the integration between your router and Cobot, when a member goes online, they will be asked to log in.
After entering their Cobot email/password, they can either go online or see an error message (for example, if they do not have enough day passes left).
Members who log in are also automatically checked in on Cobot, which means you can see how many people come into your space in the analytics section, under Attendance.
When your member comes in the next day, they do not have to log in manually again. Cobot stores their computer's MAC address (a unique number that comes with each device) and recognizes the account, checking them in automatically. Of course, your members can use more than one device (i.e., phones, tablets).
Members can sign in to your wifi with multiple devices and only have one time pass deducted at a time. If you would like to limit the number of devices your member logs in with, we are not able to do this for you, but you may be able to do this via your router or network settings.
Our Radius add-on, which allows you to use almost any router that supports a protocol called RADIUS. For more information, log in to Cobot and go to Setup > Wifi Integration.
What Do I Do If My Coworkers Can't See The Wifi Login Page?
Our wifi login requires the use of the DNS protocol. If a member's computer is using a custom DNS server instead of the Pfsense routers, the login won't work. Try to disable any custom DNS settings on the device.
Another source of problems could be from people trying to go to a page using https. In order to be redirected to the login form, people should visit a site that uses only http, for example, http://google.com.
