Description

The Lock command locks the currently selected object(s). The Lock command can be used with Buttons, Contacts, Pages, and Stations. Locked buttons or contacts do not trigger events when operated. If the button has an indicator, it appears in the “locked” state. If a page that requires a PIN number is locked, then the user will need to enter the correct PIN number before using the page. If a station is locked, all of its buttons will appear in the “locked” state and/or a lock icon will appear on the screen. Unlock has the opposite effect as Lock.

The following table shows the various effect of locking or unlocking an object:
