Before you add Security Center cardholders into the Schindler PORT database, you must configure a number of settings related to the elevator system.

What you should know

By default, cardholders inherit the settings of their parent cardholder group. However, you can override the settings for individual cardholders.

Procedure

  1. From the home page in Config Tool, open the Access control task.
  2. Click the Cardholders and credentials view, select a cardholder group, and then click the Schindler PORT tab.
  3. From the Elevator system list, select the elevator system that you want to configure for the cardholder group.
    NOTE: You must configure each elevator system in the list that cardholders require access to.
  4. (Optional) To grant the cardholder group access to any floor at any time, switch the Exempt from access rules option to ON and click Apply.
    The access rules that are defined for the Schindler PORT system do not apply to this cardholder group.
  5. From the Company name list, select the company that applies to the cardholder group.
  6. (Optional) In the Department field, enter which department of the company the cardholder group belongs to.
  7. From the Automatic destination list, select one of the following:
    Off
    The automatic destination feature is disabled.
    Universal
    Cardholders are brought to a specific floor and zone when they badge at a Schindler PORT terminal. When this option is selected, you must enter the destination floor and zone.
    Specific
    Cardholders can only call an elevator from a specific floor and zone, which then brings them to a specific floor and zone. When this option is selected, you must enter the boarding floor and zone, and the destination floor and zone.
  8. To add a Schindler PORT access control profile to the cardholder group, do the following:
    1. In the Profile name section, click the Add an item () button.
    2. Select a Security Center schedule and click OK.
    3. From the Profile name list, select an access control profile.

    1. In the Call type section, click the Add an item () button.
    2. Select a Security Centerschedule and click OK.
    3. Select a call type.
