Relay Control: Manage Relay Triggers

Relay Triggers can be used to open doors or trigger lights/sounds when employees clock. This is useful for access control or signalling when an employee has entered or left the facility. Relay triggers can be configured for all employees, for individual employees, or payroll types. Up to three devices can be activated for a specified amount of time.

To use the relay triggers/timers you must purchase and install a TimeIPS® Relay Control unit from our secure website. You can install up to one TimeIPS® Relay Control unit per TimeIPS® Clock.



Using the left pane Main Menu » Administration, click on: Clocking » Relay Controls

Click on the Manage Triggers button or the Relay Triggers icon at the top.
