IS2000: Time Schedules Setup Guide

The following guide provides a guide to time schedules the IS2000 software. Use this guide as a quick reference. Please contact IMRON Corporation for questions.

Considerations Prior to Setup

Make sure the controller is online, initialized, and configured. This tutorial will assist you in adding and managing time schedules using the Axis A1001. However, the same steps should be utilized regardless of what controller is used.

IS2000 Time Schedules Setup

Please launch IS2000 to begin.

I. Time Schedules

To access the Time Schedules module, click on the “Access” button from the navigation toolbar to bring a popup menu. From the popup menu, select “Time Schedules.” (See Figure 1)

Time Schedules are made up of intervals that indicate periods of door unlocks or when someone should be given access to a door or group of doors. Time schedules can be assigned to Access Levels, doors, IO devices, and credentials across IS2000.  Up to 100 Time Schedules can be defined per Controller Group and each Time Schedule consists of 12 intervals. (See Figure 2)

By default, Time Schedule 1 (Always) and Time Schedule 2 (working hours on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) are created in the system.

IMRON suggests that Time Schedule 1 NOT be modified by the user and left as an “Always” schedule to grant complete access.

B. Programming a Time Schedule

    • Note: As mentioned above, it is NOT recommended to modify Time Schedule 1 (Always).

  1. Select the day(s) of the week for the time interval to be used by checking or unchecking the checkboxes for the respective day(s) of the week.
  2. Set the Start Time and Stop Time by clicking on the corresponding fields and entering the time in military time (i.e. 5:00 p.m. would be 1700). As each time interval is entered, the time period will display itself graphically at the bottom of the Time Schedule page. Repeat the process for each Start Time and End Time interval you wish to add. (See Figure 7)

Note: When using the Axis A100 panel, there is a one-minute delay to the start and stop time. For example, if you enter a time schedule of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (i.e. 0900 to 1700), your door will be unlocked at 9:01 a.m. and will lock at 5:01 p.m.
