Assign your doors to the site, floor, or space that they provide direct, physical, access to. These doors are called direct doors, since they are used to directly enter the space. Each direct door should be assigned to exactly one space, but each space can have multiple direct doors.
Info: The names of the direct doors and of the spaces are both defined by you, apart from the Floor. The space "Floor" appears on every floor and its direct door may be the main door for a single office space on that floor, the elevator door that gives access to the floor, or both.
Assign doors to spaces
Important: Doors are loaded into the system by essensys partners on your behalf. If you need to add access control to additional or different doors, contact us.
