Door Groups

Creating Door Groups allow you to assign access to all, or a set of all the doors in your account in one action. After creating a group, you can assign the door group (or group of door groups) to an Access User.

Giving a guest or user access to a door group will assign their credential to all the doors in that group.

To create your first door group or a new Door Group, go to the Devices tab, select the "Door Groups" tab, and click "Add Door Group". 

Please note, Door Groups could require a plan upgrade. This can be configured from your account's Billing settings.

Group Conflicts

For Group conflicts, the last action/save rules.

For example, suppose a user is given access to an individual lock along with an access schedule by being granted access to a group. Then later, suppose this same individual is granted access to a group with a different access schedule and this door group has that same individual lock in it from the previous group. The access on this individual lock is now in conflict. In this case, the system will use the most recent access grant (and its schedule) to resolve the conflict.

 

Door Groups are a great way to provide access to a subset of locks in one easy action.

Similar to Common Doors but used for groups or 'groups of groups' of specific doors.
