Set up location zones

Learn how to create location zones. You can add a zone group to link multiple zones in the same location. You need the Administrator user role to access these settings.

Zones are a way of breaking up your location into specific areas for many purposes. You may want to track who is in what area at any time, you may need the ability to evacuate only one area of the location, or you may want to create more secure zones that people are not allowed to access unless they have the right credentials.

Create a new zone group

Zone groups are a way to group one or more zones under a common name. For example, a location has multiple buildings and multiple floors in each building. The building is a zone group and the floors are zones in that group.

To create a new zone group:

  1. Go to Locations, then select the location from the drop-down list.
  2. Select Access Control Points & Zones.
  3. Select the Zones tab.
  4. Click Create a New Zone Group.

  5. Enter the name of the group.
  6. Click OK.

You can now add zones to this zone group.

To edit your zone, click the green View button next to the zone name.

Multi-language

If the multi-language add-on is enabled, the names of your zones and zone groups will need to be translated as they appear in the kiosk and Sign In/Out Manager.

To add translations, click Edit Translation next to each zone or zone group you want to translate.
