User access levels in Space

Overview

User access levels are used to define a group of users with the same access permissions, for example, all staff in a department. This means that if you are configuring a door entry on the Door information screen, you can allow access permissions for that door to all users belonging to a specific user access level. Without user access levels, you would have to associate each individual user with that particular door.

The following sections describe how to create and configure a user access level.

User access levels allow you to group users for easier access management. Unlike zones, user access levels do not save memory space on a key.

Creating user access levels

To create a user access level, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Access points > User access levels. The User access levels screen is displayed.
