The User Groups tab lists all created user groups as well as the zones and devices assigned to them once they are highlighted. Clicking the Add button will allow for an additional user group to be created.

User Groups are permission sets that contain a number of Devices and an associated Timeband for each Device. For example, a User Group could be created called “Office Access,” which contains two Devices (“Lobby” and “Hallway”).The “Lobby” Device could be assigned a Timeband allowing access from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The “Hallway” Device could be assigned the same Timeband or one allowing access from 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday. This permission set (two Devices, each with an assigned Timeband) forms a “User Group.”

Once the User Group field has been completed and a Default Timeband selected, the devices that should be assigned to the new User Group can be selected in the Zones window. Once all selections have been completed, click Save.
