Add and Modify Access Levels

Learn how to adding or modify access levels in the Verkada Access system

Updated this week

Once a door is configured an access level needs to be added to schedule access. Access levels are assigned to access groups to give access to specific users.

Note: You cannot badge into a door unless you are in an access group with at least one access level associated.

Required. You must be logged in with a user account with Access Site Admin permissions for the site to modify or create an access level. Learn more about Roles and Permissions for Access Control.
