Flash PARCS: Monthly Barcode Credential Setup

Modified on Wed, 25 Oct 2023 at 03:46 PM


If looking for a more flexible low-cost credential solution, Flash PARCS offers the option to convert RFID data into a barcode format. Follow the steps below to create the monthly account barcode credential.

See the Monthly Account Setup article for more details on account creation. 



The monthly account RFID field must contain data. The system does not require a viable RFID Card number, any numeric data can be entered with the following format: number-colon-number.

  • Example: 183:123456 
  • If issuing prox cards the RFID data should read “facility code:card number”


  • Use a unique prefix number to identify barcode only accounts.
  • Don’t issue sequential credential numbers.

Barcode Creation

The barcodes will be created through an external source, we recommend the website https://barcode.tec-it.com/en/


Use the PDF417 or QR code option.


  • Use the Create Sequence option to create multiple barcodes. (Up to 10 at a time using the free version).
  • Print on a matte finish material, a glossy finish may interfere with scanning.
