Location Zones

How to create Zones in a location. You must have the Administrator user role assigned to access these settings.

A Zone is any area that differs in some respect or is distinguished for some purpose, from adjoining areas within the same location. E.g. Level 1, level 2, warehouse, chiller, etc.

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 at a time, 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. E.g. Building 1 has mulitple zones (level 1, level 2..) Building 1 is a zone group, level 1 is a zone in that zone group.

To create a new zone group:

  1. Go to Tools > Locations
  2. Click the green View button next to your location
  3. Select Access Control Points & Zones from the left-hand menu
  4. Select the Location Zones tab
  5. Click the Orange Create a New Zone Group button
  6. Enter the name of the zone group
  7. Click OK

You can now add Zones to this zone group.

If you do not have any zone groups set up, you can still create zones, they will be automatically added to a 'No Group' zone group.

Create a New Zone

To create a new zone:

  6. Enter the Zone Name
  7. Enter a Reference if applicable 
  8. Choose a Zone Group from the drop-down menu (If you do not have any zone groups set up you zone will be added under 'No Group')
  9. Click Save

Your Zone will be added under your zone group and it can now be added to Location Access Control Points.
