API integration with Open Path (Avigilon) access control for room reservations access by PIN
Enable Program's room reservation software to send patrons a unique 6-digit PIN via email for accessing their reserved rooms during their allocated booking period. Open Path offers excellent API documentation and currently provides this feature with two other room reservation software vendors, tailored specifically for libraries. Sending a preemptive email to patrons for room reservations significantly reduces the workload on library staff, as it streamlines the process of granting room access. Moreover, there are opportunities to integrate a 'touchless' experience through third-party applications as well.
