Schedules and profiles work together to let you customize how and when you give an individual access to your security system. Log in to your VirtualKeypad.com account to learn how to create a schedule and profile!
Once you connect to your system, you will see the ‘System Overview’ page. On the menu to the left, click on ‘Schedules.’
Let’s start with Area Settings. Here, you can choose which area will automatically arm or disarm. If you want to be reminded if your system is not armed when it should be, check the box under the Closing Check section. Then click ‘Save’ in the top right to save those settings.
Now let’s see our Arming Schedule. In our case, the arming schedule disarms the security system at 7:30 AM on weekdays and then arms the system at 6:00 PM. You can change the begin and end times by clicking in the box. Notice the section titled Areas. You can include or exclude certain areas of your business. If you want to include an area, click the slider. This area will now automatically arm and disarm at the predetermined time that you selected. In our example, we’ll add the Office area to make it armed and disarmed at the given times. Scroll down to include or exclude Doors. Click ‘Save.’
You can give individuals access to your security system on specified days and times.
All you have to do is create a new schedule. From the ‘Schedules’ page, click the + button at the top. In our case, we will name the preset Custodian.
Now configure the settings. Give them access on Weekdays or Weekends, then select a begin time and end time.
‘Profiles’ let you customize the permissions a user has in your system.
Click on ‘Profiles’ from the menu on the left.
To create a profile, click the + button at the top of the page. Name the profile. Then, scroll down to the Areas section. Use the slider to allow this individual to arm and disarm the system and use the slider to grant this individual access to the system.
Scroll down to the Access Schedules section. Click the slider next to the profile which you just created.
In the Profile Options section, use the slider to enable the user to arm, disarm, and access doors. If you are ever confused about one of these options, just click on the ‘i’ next to the option for a helpful tip. Now we’re done! Scroll back to the top of the page to save this profile.
And that’s how you create a schedule and a profile on VirtualKeypad.com!
