  • Manual Actions: Manual actions should be used for occasions when you need to unlock/lock/silence an alarm for a limited amount of time, at most 7 repeating days. 
  • Manual Action Priorities: The general priority to be used should be 80 if needing to override a door lock/unlock. Your privilege allows up to 175, however, a priority above 80 should only be used in a case where you have knowledge of a need to raise the priority setting to that level. 
  • Custom Clearances: Custom clearances should only be set for a maximum of 7 days. If access is needed for a longer period a standard clearance should be applied.
