Door Schedules

NOTE:   Door Schedules are used to program reader(s) to unlock on a specific time of day for a specific timed interval.  This functionality is achieved via the IS2000 server and therefore requires that the IS2000 server be running in order for the reader(s) to follow the programmed unlock timed intervals.

  • If Controller Groups are being utilized, select the appropriate Controller Group from the drop down pick list.
