Configure SMS and Email Settings

To connect to Wi-Fi Cloud services, guest users must register through SMS or email. The administrator must configure these settings for the user.

SMS Service Configuration

To configure the SMS service:

  1. Click Admin.
  2. Click Settings and then click SMS and Email Settings.
    A list of SMS/MMS accounts is displayed by default.
  3. Click New Account to create a new SMS/MMS account.

For Twilio, provide these details.

  • Account SID — The account SID associated with your Twilio account.
  • Auth Token — The auth token for your Twilio account.
  • Twilio Number — A number or short code that you have purchased for your Twilio account.

For MSG91, provide these details.

  • Username — The user name for your MSG91 user account.
  • Password — Password for the MSG91 user account.
  • Sender ID — A user-defined ID to be used to send SMS messages to the guest. This ID is used as the sender ID for the SMS. A guest will receive the SMS with the sender as this ID. The ID must be six characters in length and can only contain letters from A through Z. For example, ATNSMS.
  • SMS Route — Send the SMS by the Transactional route or the Promotional route. If the SMS contains any promotional content, then it cannot be sent through the Transactional route. If such a message is sent through the Transactional route, the message delivery fails. There are certain policies you must adhere to for sending promotional messages.

For a custom service provider, provide these details.

  • Service URL — The URL of the SMS endpoint including the GET parameters as name value pairs. It is mandatory that the URL has <sms_content> and <to_number> tags as placeholders for the fields that represent message content and destination number.

    For example: https://custom.service.com/sms/?username=johnsmith&[email protected]&to=<to_number>&body=<sms_content>

    Any invalid characters entered in the API Endpoint URL, for example (\n), will be replaced with "_.". The # character in the API Endpoint URL results in the URL after the "#" to be treated as a fragment. Any variables within the fragment are not replaced.

To assign portals to the SMS service accounts:

  1. Select the SMS/MMS tab.

You can assign multiple portals to an SMS service account. However, the same portal cannot be assigned to multiple SMS service accounts.
