So that cardholders can open SALTO doors and lockers, you must add the cardholders to access rules, and then add the rules to your SALTO doors and lockers.


  1. In Config Tool, create an access rule.
    To create access rules in Config Tool, see the topics "Creating access rules" and "Selecting who has access to doors" in the Security Center Administrator Guide. You can access this guide by pressing F1 in Config Tool.
  2. Add cardholders and cardholder groups to the rule.
  3. Define a schedule that contains eight or fewer time periods, and then apply your changes.
    In SALTO, a cardholder schedule (timetable) can only contain eight periods, where a period is a unique block of time, regardless of the day of the week. The following image shows a schedule that contains three time periods:
    • Period 1) 8:00 to 5:30
    • Period 2) 8:00 to 10:45
    • Period 3) 12:45 to 3:45
  4. Add the access rule to the door or doors and apply your changes.
    Security Center immediately exports the rules to the SALTO Virtual Network system.
  5. Update the cardholder's credentials: from the Cardholder Management task, select a cardholder, open the Modify cardholder window, click the Salto credential management button, and then click Update.
    Within seconds, authorized cardholders can unlock the doors and lockers for the specified schedules.
