Giving a user access to a door requires 5 steps:

  1. Ensure you are an Access Admin (Allows you to see the Verkada Access portion of Command and make changes to Verkada Access)

  2. Make sure you are a Site Access Admin for the site containing the door (Allows you to see the access controllers and doors at a site, as well as configure these doors)

  3. Assign the door to an Access Level

  4. Associate the Access Level to the Access Group

  5. Assign the user to an Access Group

The steps are detailed below.

Ensure you are an Access Admin

If you add an access controller to your org you are automatically made an Access Admin. Otherwise, another organization admin (or your account if you are an organization admin) needs to go to Admin > Org Settings > Users to elevate your permissions.

From the Users page, select the account to be modified and edit the role dropdown to the appropriate role.

Ensure you are a Site Access Admin

Site Access Admin permissions allow you to see the access controller and door on your Home and Devices pages. If you are an Org Admin, you can give yourself Site Access Admin permissions for any site. If you are not an Org Admin, then a current Site Access Admin for the site with the door in question will need to make you a Site Access Admin.

To do so, go to Admin > Access Control > Access Sites

Select Admins in the row for the site you wish to grant Site Access Admin

Next, click Add in the top right

When the dialog box appears, find the user in the list, check their name and select Done to make them a Site Access Admin.

Assigning a door to an Access Level

Navigate to the door's page and select Access Levels

From here select Add Access Levels to see a list of all configured access levels for this door. When the dialog box opens, check the box for the desired access levels to apply them to the door and select Add.

Assigning the Access Level to the Access Group

Navigate to Admin > Access Control > Access Groups

Select an access group

Select Access Levels and + Add Access Level

Check the box next to the access level the door was added to then select Add

Assigning a user to the Access Group

From Admin > Access Control > Access Groups, select the group to add a user to. On the right side of the page select + Add...

Check the box next to the user(s) you want to add to the group and finish it by selecting Add.

Upon completion of the above steps, the user will be able to unlock the door.
