System preferences apply to all users who log in to the site or device. System preferences affect the performance and operation of the system and require authorization to configure. A change to the audible alarm notification is an example of a system preference. Only the users defined in the Users Authorized to Edit System Preferences section are authorized to configure system preferences.
To synchronize system preferences within a site or to reuse the system preferences on another site, refer to the Configuring and Maintaining Preferences appendix of the ADS/ADX Commissioning Guide (LIT-1201645) or the NAE Commissioning Guide (LIT-1201519).
