Access Level Schedules and Exceptions
Schedules and exceptions allow access levels to control when access to doors is allowed
Updated this week

Access levels are used to manage door access. Access is prescribed using two components; a schedule that defines normal use and exceptions that temporarily change the access schedule. Access levels are on a per-site basis. Each site will have its own unique access levels to provide users with access to the doors in that site.

Access Level Schedules

The access level schedule dictates when users with this access will be able to access the doors. Schedules are set when creating an access level and can be modified at any time. To modify an access level schedule, you need to be an Access Admin and a Site Access Admin for the site containing the schedule.


  1. Select the Access tab from the All Products section on the left, then select the site by clicking on the location button. Once you've selected the site click on Access Levels from menu on the top

  2. On the Access Levels page, you can select view, and edit previously created access levels or add a new access level with the + button on the top right.

    Note: Name your access level something descriptive. For example, "24/7 - Full Access". During this stage, you can also choose to add groups and the doors the access level will control. These values can also be changed after the fact.

  3. From here, you can name your access level, add groups, doors, and the desired schedule


Exceptions are useful when you need to modify an access level for a given period of time, but not permanently. Exceptions take precedence over the schedule. Typically these are used for holidays or special events where access must be modified on a temporary basis. Exceptions are limited to a 1-month time frame so if you need a longer exception it is recommended to use a schedule instead.


To add an exception to an access level you need to be an Access Admin, and a Site Access Admin for the site you are making the exception in.

  1. Select Exceptions underneath the access level's schedule. You can choose from your already created exceptions or add a new one by selecting + Create new exception

  2. Name the Exception

  3. Select the date for the exception

  4. Hover over the schedule and Create Schedule

  5. Set the schedule and then select Done

  6. Apply the schedule to the access level(s)
