How to Capture Guest Emails with Your UniFi Network

Management 5 minute read 16 December 2019

It's no hidden fact that providing free guest WiFi has become a necessity in any modern hospitality venue. With 93% of venues offering free WiFi, providing basic WiFi access at your venue no longer comes with a competitive advantage, it's simply a requirement.

For venues that already have Ubiquiti hardware in place, you'll know that while the UniFi guest WiFi options are great, they are basic and lack any WiFi marketing features such as data capture. Beambox provides a convenient integration to help you power up your free WiFi network and start building your guest database.

With Beambox, you can regain that competitive advantage with a WiFi network that connects guests to your brand, not just the internet.

Setting up your branded WiFi login

Our 5-step WiFi setup enables you to manage, brand and customise your guest WiFi experience at any time. When you make a change, your UniFi networks will instantly update without delay. Need to add a new promotion to your WiFi login? No problem, you can update it from anywhere, instantly.

UniFi WiFi Logins

When guests connect to your WiFi login, they'll have the option to login using your email form or through social logins. Social logins enable the guest to quickly connect using their existing social media accounts, plus you'll still be able to capture data such as email address, full name, gender, date of birth and age.

The email form can be completely customised to capture the data that matters most to you. Select from our standard fields or add custom fields to collect bespoke guest data.

When guests enter their information, it is validated to ensure that your database is filled with quality data only. For example, the email form will verify that the mailbox exists and will prompt the guest to re-enter their email if it fails verification.

Organising your form fields

When it comes to capturing data, staying legally compliant in both data protection and marketing regulations is critical. All of our WiFi logins are pro-actively compliant in all markets that we operate within (Primarily the 🇺🇸US and 🇪🇺Europe). This means that you will always have confidence in your marketing database and your ability to use it to grow your venue.

Integrating with your UniFi controller

The Beambox + UniFi integration requires no technical understanding. From the Beambox dashboard, you will simply enter your controller details and our integrator will automatically configure the guest control settings for you. When guests then succesfully login to your WiFi, Beambox will authorise them on your cloud controller in real-time.

From there on, you can manage all aspects of your WiFi login directly from your Beambox account. Here's our full guide on integrating Beambox with UniFi.
