Moving locking devices to areas

As soon as you create a locking device, you must specify an area. Ideally, you should follow best practice (see Best practice: setting up the locking system) and plan everything out in advance before creating your locking devices (see Organisational structure). This means that you only need to open windows once.

Obviously, you can also move your locking devices to another area at a later date.

Moving individual locking devices

Moving multiple locking devices

Assigning individual locking devices to a different area (in the locking device window)

Suitable for moving a few locking devices into many different areas:

Assign multiple locking devices to another area (in the area window)

Suitable for moving multiple locking devices into a few different areas:



Maximum one area per locking device

A locking device can only belong to one single area. There are no overlapping areas in the AXM Classic . If you assign a different area to a locking device, this locking device may be automatically removed from its existing area.

  1. You can use the Area - Details column in the Area - Details window to check whether a locking device has already been assigned to an area.

Areas have no influence on authorisations

Authorisations are not directly linked to areas. Consequently, if a locking device is moved to a different area, the change does not affect authorisations initially. However, areas are a useful tool for changing authorisations more quickly.

  1. Use areas to add locking devices to authorisation groups more quickly (see Adding areas and person groups to authorisation groups).
