Streamline your check-in process and level-up your internet security with our newest integration with IronWiFi!

This integration will allow admin to:

Read on to learn more about how IronWiFi and Optix can help you manage your coworking space.

What is IronWiFi?

IronWiFi is a cloud-based RADIUS and captive portal platform that acts as a barrier between your members and the internet.

It offers an additional layer of internet security for members, as well as increased oversight and control for admins by requiring a username and password to use the WiFi.

It’s an effective way of ensuring only paying members are using your space and accessing your internet.

What are the features of this integration?

For those of you who already have IronWiFi set up in your flexible workspace, this integration will allow you to:

  • Grant access to the WiFi only after a member enters their Optix username and password
  • Automatically check a member in via Optix once they join the WiFi

Ensuring members are checking in can be one of the biggest challenges for coworking community managers. The IronWiFi and Optix integration can alleviate much of the hassle of this process. It also streamlines the user’s experience by checking them in automatically.
