The Mist app enables you to easily provide each of your visitors unique access to your Wi-Fi network.

How does this application work?

When a visitor signs in with Envoy, Mist receives their information and automatically provisions a temporary code to access your Wi-Fi network. Envoy then sends this code to the visitor via email or text message. 


  1. For this application to work, you must collect either visitor email addresses or phone numbers at sign-in. Learn more about how to configure your Envoy sign-in fields.

  2. Please ensure that the username has sufficient permissions to create single-use codes.

This app is configured per location. If using multiple locations, then the app must be installed at each location.

Enabling the Envoy + Mist application

  1. Under Wi-Fi, find Mist. Click “Install” and then “Configure”.

  1. Enter your Mist username and password, and select the Mist service type. Then click “Next step”.

  1. Select your Site or org from the drop-down, then click “Next Step”. Please ensure that this site has a guest network and guest portal configured.

  1. Select your network from the dropdown. Please ensure that this network has multi-PSK configured.

  2. Optional: Enter VLAN ID

  3. Optional: Add a URL for your logo that displays on visitor emails

  4. Optional: Send guest Wi-Fi credentials to hosts. This is useful when visitors do not have easy access to email or text messages or if they are not required to enter their email address or phone number at sign-in.

  5. Optional: Send visitor emails with updates from your Mist instance

  6. Optional: Select Visitor types to block from receiving Wi-Fi credentials.

  7. Click “Complete setup.”
