Using the access control function block it is easy to set up user access for controlling circuits or devices on your Loxone system.
The access controller is a block that is used in conjunction with 1-Wire identification devices such as iButtons or RFID tags. You can set up access schedules based on weekly times or calendars, and assign specific users to different groups which have different access rights. The steps below show you how to set up the access controller.
Step 1: Insert user
FIrst you need to have users to then put into user groups. To create a new user, select the Periphery tab, then the 'Common' menu, and click on 'User'. Alternatively, use the F4 shortcut, and type 'User'. Each user can then have an iButton ID assigned to them. This is important as it is what will trigger the access controller block.
Each user can then have an iButton ID assigned to them. This is important as it is what will trigger the access controller block.
Step 6: Assign 1-Wire Extension
You must now assign the 1-Wire extension (i.e. the iButton reader) to be used, and choose which user groups have access. In this example, we are using the extension called 'Office Door 1-wire Extension'. You can set the user groups by ticking the appropriate groups in the 'Allowed groups' section.
