Custom Barcode Decals are available to add image or text to your property's Barcode Decals. These are most often used for classifying vehicles. For example communities may distinguish between Resident and Country Club Member. Universities often distinguish between Student and Faculty. One of the other common use cases is to add an expiration date to the decal. Your security vendor may program into your controller that decal 00001 is authorized to enter for the next year, and then it automatically gets deactivated. Adding the expiration date to the decal helps manage this process.
“We have blue, red and black (NSCA) bar code decals. The blue ones are for the owners that have a waiver to park on the street overnight. The red decals are for guests of residents that are visiting the community and the black are specifically for an owners vehicle in Niguel Shores (NSCA).”
― Marla Miller, General Manager at Niguel Shores Community Association

What does this cost?
Custom Decals are priced based on the cost of materials - the larger the decal the more the decal will cost per unit.
How reliable are they?
The functioning aspect of the decal does not change when adding image or text. The custom decals are 100% reliable like all BAi decals.
