SMS password for Guest Portal

Submitted by -

Hi, it would be a nice feature, that guests could gain access to the guest portal by filling in mobile number and then they will get a sms with a one time access code.

Hi @polereseau


this feature is implemented via 3rd Party providers. I actually can offer you a cloud-based solution for your APs (as long as they are able to connect to Unifi Controller). Ready within 24hrs. Contact me in case you are interested. I'm not sure if Ubiquity can and will provide the same feature (due to the different business model [HW sales, rather than subscription services]).

@polereseau  I've been using binaer's solution at a client site for a couple of months now and I can confirm that it works great, I can highly recommend it.

So, if we want this, we have to trust som forum users that their solution is not a haux?

Is there well known (international) vendors or solution suppliers for using SMS to authenticate users?


Also, I would like a solution where every user get x minutes per day and y minutes per week or month.

This way I can give visitors access but naigbours who live nere by would be restricted, per mobile phone number.

Hey hakontdal


basically, yes, you have to. But you know what? You are right. Why trust someone you don't know. I can offer you a free trial, without any credit card or anything. I just hook you up to our system and you can check it out yourself. If you are happy, we would be delighted to serve you. If not, you don't have any obligations. Let me know if you would be interested.
