This page explains how to use Integromat to set up a connection with Igloohome.
Igloohome integrates with Beds24 via Integromat.
1.1 Set Up
Step 1: Set up an Auto Action which selects the bookings which will be sent to Integromat
Go to (SETTINGS) GUEST MANAGEMENT > AUTO ACTIONS and create an Auto Action with following settings:
- Trigger Action = 'Auto'
- Trigger Event = "Check-in"
- Set Trigger time to a negative value, for example -2 days means the booking data will create a PIN 2 days before check in.
- Trigger Time = same number as Trigger Window (positive), for example if -2 days was selected, trigger window should be 2 days
The Auto Action must be created by the Account which owns the property, actions linked from other accounts cannot be used.
Step 2: Select the Auto Action which you want to use for Integromat
Select the Auto Action in (SETTINGS) APPS & INTEGRATIONS->INTEGROMAT.
Step 3: Create an apiKey
Create an apiKey of 16 or more characters in (SETTINGS) APPS & INTEGRATIONS->INTEGROMAT and save it.
Step 4: Choose your send strategy
Bookings can be sent repeatedly, once only or after each modification.
Step 5: Customize information sent to Integromat (optional)
A default set of booking information is sent to Integromat, this can be customized by specifying the fields you want to send, one per line at the setting "Data fields". See below for a set of all fields.
Step 6: Activate sending
Tick the rooms for which you want to send bookings in (SETTINGS) APPS & INTEGRATIONS->INTEGROMAT.. Only bookings from rooms enabled for Integromat and which meet the trigger conditions in the Auto Action will be sent.
Contact igloohome to get an API key (required for the Integromat setup).
Step 1: Add Igloohome
Click on this link https://www.integromat.com/en/apps/invite/c9526e8ac86da8a74d48d6182a8381ec and select "Add to my inventory" to add igloohome app to your Integromat account.
Step 2 : Create a Scenario
- Create a new scenario, add Beds24 app as the first module. Use the API key and Property ID from Beds24 to create a connection.
- Add igloohome app as the second step, choose "Create Duration PIN Code"
- Use an API key from igloohome to create a connection (if you do not have an API key, please contact igloohome team for one)
Enter the Lock ID that is tied to this property (PIN will be created for this lock when new booking is created). Lock ID can be found on the igloohome app.
- Under Start date, select the Date and Time function "parseDate". Input the check-in date variable from Beds24 in the first half of the function, followed by the check in time and the timezone. Please make sure that the minutes and seconds for the check-in time is 00, as PINs are created by hourly resolution. For example: parseDate(Check-in 12:00:00+08:00;YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ssZ)
- Under End date, select the Date and Time function "parseDate". Input the check-out date variable from Beds24 in the first half of the function, followed by the check out time and the timezone. Please make sure that the minutes and seconds for the check-in time is 00, as PINs are created by hourly resolution. For example: parseDate(Check-out 16:00:00+08:00;YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ssZ)
- Enter a description for the PIN code. We recommend using the Booking ID to easily identify the source of the PIN.
- Add gmail app as the third step and choose "Send email"
- Connect your gmail account and input the Guest email variable into the email address field.
- Setup your email template to include the PIN code from the igloohome app.
- For multiple rooms in the property, set up a router between the Beds24 and igloohome app.
- Clone the igloohome app and link it to the router.
- Clone the gmail app and link it to the cloned igloohome app.
- Set up filters between the router and the igloohome apps. The room ID from Beds24 should correspond to the lock ID from igloohome.
- Change the lock ID for the cloned igloohome app to match the filter.
- Change the gmail template to include the PIN code from the cloned igloohome app.
- Clone as many igloohome app/gmail app for each room in the property and add it to the router with a filter.
Each property will need a new scenario.
Make sure the Integromat App Limit can process the maximum number of bookings you expect to be sent for each trigger, especially if you are sending the bookings one time only, more bookings than the limit value will not be processed.
