New to the community but looking for guidance from those who are experienced in this sector.
I would like to configure Meraki in an 18 room motel/hotel with the following features;
- Guests to be greeted by a splash screen when joining Wi-Fi, they have to authenticate with room number/name (to avoid any passersby using the wi-fi)
- Free Wi-Fi that they get logged into is capped, but they have the choice to Pay for faster internet.
I can see the optional paid systems but I am struggling to see how to configure the splash authentication screen.
Any guidance on how to configure those features would be greatly appreciated.
Meraki can directly directly into some PMS's. What management system are they using to management the hotel?
Being a small hotel/motel, they will be using little hotelier, but I haven't found any integrations with them. If their PMS doesn't have integration, do you have another suggestion?
Im thinking of creating 2 SSID's so that the second one can have the payment system and larger bandwidth, that should take care of the optional payment speed.
Im just stuck on the authentication splash system for the free one.
With no integration, you will probably need to use Meraki authentication with your splash page. It will probably be easier to pre-create a username for each room with a static password, and then leave a card in each room with the password.
Actually I see the paid billing option also includes an option for "free" with limits. Check it out.
I haven't used it for a Hotel before, but I have had good results with Splash Access.
