chevron_rightMy Brivo isn't working, what do I do?
Brivo is the app on your phone that grants you access to the amenities. If for some reason it is not working, there are some steps that you can follow that may fix the issue.“Orange” ErrorIf you tap the access button and receive an orange button, it means that your phone had not made a connection with the access point yet. You must also be within 2 feet of the door, otherwise it will not connect. We recommend waiting a moment for the error to clear and try again (it usually takes about 20 seconds for it to clear out), and ensure that you are standing immediately in front of the FitCenter door.Location AccessWhen you installed Brivo on your phone, you should have granted the app access to your location. Sometimes settings on your phone may be changed to new defaults when an OS update is installed. We recommend checking the app settings to ensure that location access is still enabled, and that location services are enabled on your phone.Not AccessibleSome amenities are only available at certain times. If you are trying to access that amenity during outside hours, access will be denied during those "off" hours.Device UseIf you attempt to register your Pass on another device, it will deny the pass (same goes if you uninstall and reinstall the app). If you receive a new phone or have reset your current phone, it will deny the pass. Please Connect w/Us to troubleshoot if any of these examples occur as your pass may need to be reset.ReservationAs of July 24, 2020 (and until further notice), use of the FitCenter requires reservations. We recommend completing a reservation at least 30 minutes prior to visiting. If you did not receive an email confirmation, it may signal that there was an error while completing your reservation, and you will need to try again to ensure that access can be granted.
