FLASH PARCS: Monthly Barcode Credential Setup

Modified on Thu, 16 Feb 2023 at 04:26 PM

Monthly Barcode Setup

FLASH PARCS offers the option to convert RFID data into a barcode format. This provides a flexible, low-cost credential solution. Use the guidelines below to help you create a monthly account barcode credential.


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”

See the Monthly Account article on How to Add RFID Credentials to an account.


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


You must create the barcode through an external source, we recommend the website www.barcode.tec-it.com, or contacting a 3rd party vendor. 


  • Use the PDF417 or QR barcode 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.
  • Parkers can present the image on their smartphone and scan it at the kiosk.
