Person - Quick Start


An access control system fundamentally controls the flow of people through a secure Facility. It should be no surprise that each Person's record contains a large amount of information. In most cases entering a Person, is straight forward. Input the basic information, determine if the Person needs a login of their own. Assign them one or more Access Level or Access Level group to provide access to secure portions of the system. Assign the Person a Card so the Readers can identify them. If the Person does need to utilize BluSKY, when you assign them a Role, remember to ensure they are also given a BluSKY login.
