You can ALLOW or REJECT the Visitor at that time. One additional feature is to BLOCK a visitor from future visits.

Entry will be a breeze with this feature to pre-authorize guests. Simply generate a pre-authorized numeric code for your guests and let your guest know.

No more questions asked as the GUARD will be able to see which Wing/Flat no. the Visitor will proceed to.
Q: What do I need to do here?
Enter your mobile nos. within your family. Let’s say you have entered three mobile nos. Based on the order of these mobile nos., the SECURITY GUARD will be able to call you if you are not inside your house at that moment, for example. The SECURITY GUARD, in his version of Biizlo, will see the order of mobile nos. in the same way in which you have arranged them here. In this case, the 1st mobile number will be called first, 2nd one will be called second, when need arises. You can change the order of these nos. as per your requirement on a particular day.
Q: Do I need to add anything here? What happens after I add them?
One member of the family in a wing and flat no. may have got access to Biizlo. He/She should add other members of his/her family. Once added, the other members will be notified via sms and they can download the app and login with OTP sms. Until this activity of adding flat members is done using the mobile nos., additional members will not be allowed access to Biizlo. Everyone added to a wing & flat will be notified when a visitor comes.
Q: When is this feature handy?
For this feature to work, you must have important contacts added in Biizlo who will be notified in case of Panic or Emergency of the resident. To use this feature, simply type your urgent message and select to who you want to send it to, viz., to your list of important contacts; or, to the entire list of residents in your Society. One scenario can be, if anyone has suffered an extreme medical condition inside the house and there is nobody present, the resident can immediately make use of this feature to send the alarm which can turn out to be a life saver. Or, fire in the building, for example.
Q: What are these important contacts and how is this necessary?
What if you are in a state of extreme critical emergency, health or otherwise? Keep adding your important contacts so that they will be alerted/alarmed in such scenarios and to also automatically send details of where you are, i.e., your geolocation. Using the Emergency Help feature in the Dashboard, you can send PANIC messages to all in one go thereby saving time or getting that urgent help when required.
Q: What do I do here?
This is the icon at the bottom centre of your Dashboard. When you click the icon, you will see the master notifications page which is not just for Visitor notifications. You will also see notifications for Emergency Messages, if any. Click on each of these alerts to go to their details page. You see all notifications that you have received.

The biometric device is attached to the guard app. Regular visitors of residents and society can be allowed via fingerprint identification. The charges for the biometric device is billed separately and is not included with the Biizlo software subscription pricing.
Q: What is code-based entry and how can I use it? [ BETA ]
Rather than ask the 10-digit mobile no. and other details of regular staff everytime, 4-digit numeric codes unique to every regular staff can be generated to identify the person. This helps in simplifying the entry process.
Q: What are the features that I can customize to suit my requirements as a resident?
You can change the notification sounds, block visitors, disable daily notifications for regular staff, viz., maids, drivers, etc. to suit your convenience. You can also use these features during specific time periods as well.
