Allow for multiple PIN codes to be used on same Panel

Currently the new feature allows for just one pin code. Adding more pin codes will allow the user to assign codes to different members of the family or temp codes to guests without needing to share their own code. Individual PINs would need to be revocable.

These are very good ideas to consider and we are definitely looking to make the permission system more robust.

Meanwhile, as a workaround for your use case, consider creating a copy of your panel (panel > builder > menu > copy panel), assign a unique PIN Code and share it with the guest. Then, delete the panel when needed.

Alternatively, you can temporarily change your PIN for the guest and then revert to your original PIN.

Being able to have multiple pin codes would be a huge improvement. I would like to generate a code for a guest to use and then delete it without having to give out or change my primary pin.

Hi Robert,

When presented with the PIN Pad, would you prompt which PIN Code should be used?

Would this be "security level access" kind of thing? I.e. Level 3 would grants access to everything, while level 2 grants access to levels 1 and 2, etc?

I would think instead of the pin being assigned to individual panels when set up, it would be an option under settings or my account. There you add a pin(s) for users with names and then at the panel level you can check to allow the panel itself to use any pin from that list.

I wasn't really considering levels. I would just like to add a guest pin, allow that guest to disarm the system while house sitting for instance, then I can remove the pin at a later point without giving up my main pin.
