How to: Add access control points to Aware

Last modified: Thursday December 10, 2020.

Once you have added your access control system to Ava Aware, you can scan the access control system for information about the access control points attached to the server.

When Ava Aware has the list of access control points, you can then add these control points to Aware, enabling you to place them in Map view, read status messages from them, and to trigger rules to alert your staff about access control events.
