Name The name given to the Portal
In Reader The Reader used for entry.
Out Reader The Reader used for exit.
Antipassback Mode This mode will keep the card from being used twice in quick succession
Active Lock Schedule Portal Mode This is the mode the Portal uses when first activated or reactivated
Perimeter Portal If checked this Portal is an entry into the Facility.
Offline Portal Mode The default is "No Change". This is the mode you want the portal to be in when the SIO board(s) loses communication with the Controller.  We recommend that this be set to "No Change".  With this setting, if the door was unlocked it will stay unlocked, if it was on card access it will stay on card access. Note: This setting will be used anytime the controller is rebooted
Deleted If checked, entry is deleted from BluSKY.
