Access control setting is to set unlock time and assign privilege for
registered users. Settings of each user consist of three period time
settings and one group setting. Relationship between period time and
period time is "OR". Group also consists of three period time settings
and by the same token, relationship between these three period time is
"OR".
Simply put, if you want to keep a registered user in unlock status. Firstly
the group that this user is in should be defined in unlock combination
(one group can be defined in one combination together with other group,
but these groups are required to unlock door together). Second, current
unlock time is in any availability range of user time period and period
time of its group.
Under system default, a new registered user is in Group 1 and group
combination is Group 1. So new registered user is in unlock status under
default. If a group that user is in is not defined in group unlock
combination setting, then the use can only record attendance and cannot
unlock door.

period in 24 hours everyday. Each use can set up to three time zones and
the relationship between these three time zones is "Or", which means
the user is valid as long as identification time satisfied one of these three
time zones. Each time zone format of time zone is HH: MM-HH: MM,
i.e. in term of 24 hours format and precision to second.
End time less than start time "23:57-23:56", means all day forbidden.
End time larger than start time "00:00-23:59", means valid in the time
interval.
Valid time period for user unlocks: all day open "00:00-23:59" or time
period with end time larger than start time.
