Security Center

To define a set of time constraints for a multitude of situations, such as when a user can log on to the system or when video from a surveillance camera can be recorded, you can create schedules and then apply them to specific entities.

What you should know

When the Security Center Directory is installed, the Always schedule is created by default. This schedule has a 24/7 coverage. It cannot be renamed, modified, or deleted, and has the lowest priority in terms of schedule conflict resolution.

If you want to use schedules for any of your settings in Security Center, you must create the schedules in advance.


  1. Open the System task, and click the Schedules view.
  2. Click Schedule (), type a name for the schedule, and then press ENTER.
  3. In the Identity tab, enter basic properties of the schedule, and then click Apply.
  4. Click the Properties tab.
  5. From the Date coverage drop-down list, choose one of the following:
    Defines a pattern that repeats every day.
    Defines a pattern that repeats every week. Each day of the week can have a different time coverage. This option is not available for twilight schedules.
    Defines a series of patterns that repeat on a monthly or yearly basis. Each date pattern can have a different time coverage. For example, on July 1st every year, on the first Sunday of every month, or on the last Friday of October every year.
    Defines a list of specific dates in the future. Each date can have a different time coverage. This option is ideal for special events that occur only once.
    NOTE: The Daily, Ordinal, and Specific schedules allow you to define twilight settings.
  6. Click Apply.
