Door Accessibility can be setup by setting door and its Time Zone. This article contains steps to configure Door Accessibility.

Applies To:

  • Software xPortal2005, xPortal2007, xPortalNet, xPortal3000

 Resolution Summary

This section assumes the Door Setup, Time Set Setting and Time Zone Setup are completed. After all, now we can setup the door accessibility by setting door and its Time Zone. The Door Accessibility Level will be assigned to every card, thus the system can determine at which day and what time the Card Holder can access the door. 

The xPortalNet IS software supports 255 sets of Door Access Level except xPortalNet IS/7 where it can support up to 4080 sets of Door Access Level. 

By default, the system has 2 Door Access Levels, which is access code '000' and '001'. Door Access Level '000' is means no access to all doors whereas Door Access Level '001' allows full access to all doors. These default settings cannot be edited nor deleted.
