The reader LED behavior can be adjusted in .1 second increments to accommodate virtually any desired display sequence.

It is recommended to create a new reader type so that only the readers which require the custom LED function can be individually configured.

If the desired outcome is to effect all the readers for the system, simply make the changes for the existing in-use reader types rather than creating new reader types.
