How do I create an Access Group?

Access Groups combine door groups and schedules, so your users can have access to the doors they need at certain times.

What are Access Groups?

An access group combines a schedule and a door group. You will create access groups so you can link certain schedules with certain doors for specific users. For example, if your employees need to access the lobby door from 9am-5pm, you will create an access group that combines both the lobby door and the 9am-5pm schedule. 

If you are creating a new Access Group that requires a new schedule and door group, you will have to create the schedule and door group first.

2) Fill out the access group details. Name the access group, add a description (optional), and click the Doors and Schedule that you would like to combine, then click the 'Save and Close' button.
