Can I create multiple daily time frames for an Access Control credential?

Yes. Time frames for users to use their credentials can be set up using a rule and a schedule. Multiple time frames can be set up by creating an additional rule and schedule for each time frame.

Example: A user is allowed to use their credentials to access a door from 10:00 AM to 10:30 PM and from 1:00 PM to 1:30 PM. Their credentials will only work within the specified time frames and the doors will automatically lock at the end of each time frame.
