Creating a Schedule

Larry Wile Updated by Larry Wile


A schedule is a reusable time template that can control things such as when a door is unlocked or when a device is activated. A schedule is also used for access privileges with User Groups.

A holiday is a period of time during which a schedule is overridden instead of following its normal time block.


The following Administrator permissions are required to create a schedule:

  • View schedules
  • Create and edit schedules
