Adding areas and person groups to authorisation groups

This section explains how to add multiple locking devices to authorisation groups quickly using areas. The process for person groups/identification media is similar.

Ideally, you will have already created your authorisation groups before creating the locking devices (see Best practice: setting up the locking system and Creating authorisation groups). This allows you to set authorisation groups directly in locking device and identification medium properties when you create locking devices and identification media:

You can use areas to quickly add several locking devices to authorisation groups:

  1. AXM Classic open.
  2. Authorisation group created (see Creating authorisation groups).
  3. At least one area created (see Creating an area).
  4. At least one locking device has been assigned to the area (see Moving locking devices to areas).
  1. Click the orange AXM button .
  2. AXM bar opens.
  3. Select the Access Levels entry in the LOCKING SYSTEM CONTROL group.
  4. The AXM bar will close.
  5. The Access Levels tab will open.
  6. Select another locking system in the drop-down menu or select the All drop-down entry to display the authorisation groups in all locking systems.
  7. Click on the authorisation group to which you wish to add locking devices and identification media.
  8. The authorisation group window will open.
  9. Click on the Locks tab.
  10. Window switches to the Locks tab.
  11. Use to sort/filter the displayed entries if required (see Sorting and filtering).
  12. NOTE


    Areas as a filter criterion

    Areas can be used as filter criterion, thus simplifying selection of your locking devices.

    1. Click the filter icon in the Sector column.
    2. Select one or more areas.
  13. Select all locking devices that you wish to add to the authorisation group (Ctrl+click for individual devices or Shift+click for multiple devices).
  14. NOTE


    Double-clicking as an alternative to arrow keys

    Double-clicking an entry in the list will also move this entry to the other column.

  15. Use to move only the selected locking devices or to move all locking devices.
  16. The selected locking device in the left-hand column is added to the authorisation group.
  17. Click on the Finish button.
  18. The authorisation group window closes.
  19. All identification media in this authorisation group are authorised for all locking devices in this authorisation group.
  20. Matrix view is visible again.
  21. Click on the Refresh button.
  1. Matrix displays authorisations from your authorisation group (identified by a small triangle next to the cross).
