Schedules

Overview

Schedules are a collection of time intervals used to control access to Portals or Floor Stops. Schedules provide an easily managed mechanism to manage the access control system based off timing needs.

Schedules

Access Schedules are used together with Access Levels to determine an individual's access to Portals or Floor Stops. For example, Linda needs access to every door in a Facility during normal business hours but she does not need to access the building after hours. An Access Schedule for business hours would allow her to only use her Card or Credentials during the specified time. 

Device Schedules determine when a device should remain energized. Device schedules are likely to describe the times when a Portal should remain locked. For example, Corputech wants to keep the front door unlocked during business hours. A Device Schedule would be used to keep the lock engaged during non-business hours.

Creating a Device Schedule

  1. Log in and navigate to Schedules. Main Menu-> Administration -> Schedules
  2. In the lower left hand side click the  icon.

Create Device Schedule

  1. Select the System you are making a schedule for.
  2. It is important to verify that the Schedule Type is set to Device Schedule.
  3. Give the Schedule a name using the Name text field.
  4. Using the Schedule Interval, select the time you want to disallow Access.
    • Note: If necessary use the Plus Sign.png icon to add another row for more complex timing.
    • NoteIf there is a period where you wish to disallow access you must use the first interval up until the time where access should be allowed then use another interval when the Device schedule should go into effect and lock. 
    • The example shown would keep the device engaged or locked all weekend, from midnight to 8:00am and 5:00pm until midnight on the weekdays.
  5. If needed include a Holiday Schedule to be applied on the defined Holidays.
  6. When finished use the shortCreateBtn.png button to finish.
