We recommend adding all the door names in your building in advance of installing Latch devices. This means you can add people to the door in advance so that people have access as soon as a device is installed on that door. Once you've created the door names and added all the people, you can assign that door name to a Latch device during installation. Alternatively you can create door names during installation using Manager App.
1. Create a door
- Navigate to the 'Doors' tab in Latch Manager
- Select 'Create Door'
- Name the door
- Select the door type
- Select 'Create' to finish creating the door
- You can now add people to this door
2. Assign the door name to a Latch device during installation
Once you have created the door, it needs to be assigned to a Latch device during installation using the Manager App. Once installation is complete, any people you have added to the door in advance will now have access.
What is a 'Not Installed' door?
Once you have created a door, it needs to be assigned to a Latch device. This occurs during installation of the Latch device. Until then, the door will remain 'uninstalled'. You can still continue to add people to the door.
