Access level configuration helps clients to secure their system because they can set different Access Level for each authorized user according to the time zone. With this feature, you can limit the access of your devices to specific times and combinations of verification type in Access level, enhancing security of your premises.

By configuring the Access Level, the security mechanism for your premises is tightened to prevent it from being invaded by any unauthorized individuals.

Create a door in Ingress, then  assign your device to that door.

• Default Time Set Configuration

• Adding your own preferred Time Set
Click Add Time Set and configure the time intervals where users are allowed to access the door. Define the start and end time applicable for this Time Set. You can configure up to 3 different time sets in a day. 

Note: User can only access the door within these 3 intervals and cannot access the door in between the break interval of these 3 time ranges.
Click Save to save the settings. Once you’ve done configuring all the Time Set settings, click Transfer All Time Set to Device to synchronize all the settings to the devices.

1. Access 1 – Full access, can access all doors
2. Access 2 – Can access Door 1 and Door 2
3. Access 3 –  Can access Door 1 and Door 3
4. Access 4 – Can access Door 2 and Door 3
5. Access 5 –  Can access Door 1 only

    1. Dear Sir,

      For your kind information, you just can edit the time from the time zone, because time zone based on the time set. But when you use the time zone, it will automatically follow the setting from your time zone. You also need to make sure that you are using the latest version of Ingress software which you can get it from here:

      Best regards,
