What Brivo Information do you need?
To set up the Brivo integration in the Rhombus console you will need the four items below:
- Username - This is your Brivo user name that is tied to your account
- Password - This is the password tied to your account
- Client ID - This is created after creating a new application.
- Client Secret - This is created after creating a new application.
Activate the Integration in Rhombus
In the Rhombus Console, you'll navigate to the path below to turn on the integration:
Settings > Third Party Integrations > Badge Systems > Brivo
You'll be asked for your username, password, client ID, and client secret as seen below:
Activate the Integration in Brivo
To get a client ID and client secret, you'll need to create a new application under the application management section. You should name this new application "Rhombus" and insert a description of your choice. Make sure to choose "password" as your Authentication Type as seen below:
After you create a new application, your client ID and client secret can be found under the information bubble. You'll find your username under the bottom left tab. Note: Do not use your email address as your username for the integration. Your password is the same password you use to login to the Brivo OnAir Console.
Setting up the Integration
Next, your Brivo access points will appear within the Rhombus console under the Device Name column. From here you can select which cameras you want to associate to which access points.
