You can choose specific days and time periods when your alarm is armed.

For instance, you may want your alarm to be armed Monday-Friday during a certain time and Saturday-Sunday during a different period of time.

You can configure active alarm periods using the Schedule feature.

Tip: It is highly recommended to set your alarm schedule so that the system is armed one hour after the last employee is expected to leave and disarmed one hour before the first employee is expected to arrive.
For example, if the first employee is expected to enter the location at 8 A.M., configure the alarm schedule to disarm at 7 A.M. If the last employee is expected to leave at 11 P.M., configure the alarm schedule to arm at 12 A.M.
This helps ensure the alarm system does not trigger a false alarm because an employee arrives early to work or remains on site after their shift.

Configure Alarm Schedule

To configure a schedule for your alarm:

  1. From the Alarms page > Alarm Configurations tab, select Create Schedule :


  2. A list comprising all seven days of the week is displayed. Choose the days on which you want to arm the alarm using the sliders:

  3. Choose a day and specify the period of time you want the alarm to be armed. For example, you can choose to arm the alarm on Sundays between the hours of 12:00 AM to 7:00 AM. If you wish to arm the alarm during the evening or night, a second time period is available for configuration by default. In the example below, the alarm is armed on Sunday from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM:


  4. Once you have configured your alarm schedule, select Save to apply all changes.

  5. Select the Schedule icon in the main Alarms user interface to ensure the alarm is armed during the dates and times you specified:
