Applying a Door Override

JC Updated by JC


A door override is a method of temporarily overriding a door lock state from within the Access Devices page. There are three types of overrides that can be applied.

  • Indefinitely - choose to keep your door locked or unlocked indefinitely.
  • Until a Certain Time - choose to keep your door locked or unlocked until a certain time later in the day.
  • Until Next Schedule Change - choose to lock your door until the next change. A schedule must be applied to the door first before using this function.

No matter which type of override is applied, a Credential User will be able to access a locked door as long as they have the proper access permissions.
