Manual Control of Device Groups Areas

Device Groups / Areas will allow for any combination of grouped points in a Device Group / Area to be disarmed, unlocked, armed, or locked manually and will control all devices in the group once the command has been sent.

  • Click on the Access menu and click on Device Groups / Areas.
  • Unlock the pad lock to allow editing of the Device Groups / Areas module.
  • Select the controller from the pick list by clicking on the drop down arrow to the right of the Controller tag. ¬†Once the appropriate controller has been selected all Readers, Inputs and Outputs that are associated to the controller selected will be displayed.
  • Highlight the Device Group from the column on the left.
  • Right mouse click and select Arm, Deactivate, Lock; Force Arm, Deactivate, Lock; or Disarm, Activate, Unlock.

Please note that the Force Arm command in ELK can only be done if the point(s) are programmed to be Force Armed or Bypassed.
