Flash PARCS: Overnight Tablet Module

Modified on Tue, 4 Jun at 12:25 PM


Overnight access credentials allow the parker in and out privileges of the parking facility, these credentials follow industry passback rules that require the pass to be used with the proper in/out sequence.

The Overnight Pass option allows hotel front desk attendants to issue barcoded passes to guests who self-park in the parking facility. These passes are activated through the Flash App on the Flash provided Windows Surface tablet and connected laser scanner.

Overnight Pass Usage

Overnight passes have the attributes below:

  • Allow for in and out privileges until the set departure date. The pass automatically deactivates at the location’s operating window hour on the set departure date.
  • If the parker pulled a transient ticket to gain entry and the transient ticket is closed as the overnight pass is activated, the guest’s next action must be an exit.
  • Set to a neutral state when first activated. This allows guests to use it at entry or exit.
  • Standard passback rules apply after first use unless the location passback settings have been customized. (See below)

Overnight Pass Passback Options

Locations have the passback options below for overnight passes:

  • Disable the passback requirement for all overnight passes.
  • Designate a number of allowed free exits per pass.

Contact Flash Support to make changes to the passback requirements. 

Late Checkout Fee Option

A Late CheckOut fee option can be added to the location’s setup. If the guest exits the parking facility after the set late checkout time on their departure date, they’re required to pay an additional fee at the kiosk. When the late checkout fee is enabled the operating window deactivation rule is null.
