Location Zones

How to create Zones in a location. User Role required to access these settings: Administrator.

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. E.g. 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 Tools > Locations.
  2. Click View next to your location.
  3. Select Access Points & Zones from the left-hand menu.
  4. Select the Location Zones.
  5. Click the Orange Create a New Zone Group.

  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:

  1. Go to Tools > Locations.
  2. Click the green View button next to your location.
  3. Select Access Points & Zones from the left-hand menu.
  4. Select the Location Zones tab.
  5. Click the blue Create a New Zone button.

  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 Access Points.

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


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.
