It enables an operator to unlock or lock all doors, or a dedicated group of doors via icons in the Doors.NET client or from a dedicated hardware input. This setting allow you to toggle between whether this feature is enabled or disabled for the controller.
Note: There are limitations with Global Lock/Unlock related to response times when using PXL or Entraguard controllers. These limitations, and further setup instructions are explained in more detail in the standard Doors.NET help file.
