Prerequisites

Integration Activities

Step 1. Set up the Employees

All employees must be configured with badging information and imported via Employee Import. Therefore, set up an Employee Import that includes the column:

  • Badge - Employee's Badge ID, Badge Code, or Username.

For more details, see Understanding the Employee Import Data.

Step 2. Set up the Badge Readers in SiQ

Badge Readers must be configured on the Floor Map in SiQ and each Badge Reader must be configured with a unique code. This will identify the location where a person entered the building and left the building. The same code will be reported by the Badge Reader at the customer’s buildings.

Add a Device icon and set it up as a Badge Reader

  1. Navigate to the Floor Map floor_maps.png icon.
  2. Select the building and floor you are working on.
  3. Click the Map Editor map_editor_icon.png icon. The Map Editor displays.
  4. Click the ADD SPACE icon. The space drawer displays.

6. On the Floor Map, click the Device icon. The data drawer displays.

7. If you just added a device, the default Device Type will be a meeting room. From the Device Type drop-down select Badge Reader.

9. Repeat steps 6 to 8 for the other Badge Readers on the floor map.

Any changes you make in the Data Drawer are saved automatically.

Step 3. Set up the Badging File

Set up a data file in a csv format and include the following:

  • Badge - Employee's Badge ID, Badge Code, or Username.
  • Device Info - Device ID that was set up on the floor map in SiQ.
  • Admitted at - Date and time the employee used the badge reader.
  • Status - Status of the employee's reading (Accepted or Denied).
