Here we will walk you through the necessary steps to set up a System Event rule to open doors during a certain time frame.
Click on the System Events icon in the Cloud Node Appliances home screen and click the + icon in the lower right.
Assign a unique Name for the event that will describe what the event will do, such as Open Door.
If the door(s) being opened are part of a partition, select the desired partition from the drop-down list in the Partition field.
In the Schedule section, select a Start Time and Stop Time to indicate when the door(s) will be open. (When you want the door(s) set to open, and when the door(s) will close.)
If this will be a Recurring event, select the days of the week for the door(s) to be open.
If this will be a Single Date such as for a holiday or other special event, set the date in the field in the form MM/DD/YYYY or click on the down arrow to set a date from the calendar.
In the Action section, set a Trigger of On Door Open or On Credentials Input, depending on the type of device being used (a key to unlock/lock the door(s) or a card reader/input device).
Select the + icon next to Source Doors to check the door(s) to be opened. Click SELECT.
At the Target Doors section, select Same as Source Doors if the Target door(s) and the Source door(s) are the same.
If they are different, select the Another Doors option and select the + icon next to Target Doors to check the desired door(s). Click SELECT.
Click SAVE at the top right to save your work.
