Cause

In order to unlock a door from a graphic, the door reader must first be added to that graphic.

Resolution

To add a door reader to a graphic, do the following:

1. From the “General Configuration” tab navigate to “Floorplans” and select the correct floorplan, then go to the hardware tab. 

2. Add the appropriate reader by clicking the green +, then drag it to the correct location on the floorplan graphic. Save the change to the floorplan graphic. 

3. From the “Access Control” tab navigate back to the newly updated floor plan. Now you can right-click on the reader and select “Unlock”. This will unlock the corresponding door.
