Command 53, Access Control Functions.
Access Control Functions
In systems that combine security and Access Control, the COMMAND 53 feature lets you Add or Delete Access Cards and turn user access levels ON or OFF. With an Access Control system you can issue up to 255 user access cards. When a new access card is issued, the Add function lets you activate that access card in the memory of your security system. Similarly, when an access card is cancelled, the Delete function lets you deactivate that access card from the memory of your security system. The ability to turn user authorization levels ON or OFF gives you control over allowing or denying access to card holders at any of the seven authorization levels. To enter the COMMAND 53 Mode, press COMMAND when SETUP FUNCTION is displayed. You can only enter the COMMAND 53 Mode while your system is disarmed. Before you can use COMMAND 53, you must enter a passcode beginning with the digit "8" that was programmed into your security system by your alarm technician.
Access Control Functions associated with each Alpha II Function Key (A, B, C, D): In the COMMAND 53 Mode, the Function Keys (A, C, D) are used for selecting functions related to the Access Control feature and are different from their normal operation, as explained below:
A Key - Add (activate) a newly issued access card in the memory of your security system.
B Key - N/A
C Key - Turn authorization level (s) ON or OFF.
D Key - Delete (deactivate) an access card from the memory of your security system.
To use COMMAND 53:
A = Add Access Card - The Add function allows you to issue Access Cards with up to four different authority levels, one authority level for each door where a Card Reader (A, B, C, D) is installed. To do so, you must have a copy of all of the User Numbers and their assigned authorization levels. User Numbers and their assigned authorization levels are programmed into your security system and documented by your alarm technician on a Program/Account Record Sheet. From this listing of User Numbers and assigned authorization levels, you can carefully select a User Number with authorization levels that meet the "access needs" of the user to whom the card is being issued. Once the appropriate User Number is selected, document the Access Card Serial Number and User's Name on the same line of the Program/Account Record Sheet as the selected User Number. Only Card Reader A can be used for activating a new access card in Step 4.
To Add a Card:
C =Change Levels (Turn ON/OFF) - The authorization levels assigned to a user number are programmed into your security system by your alarm technician for each door in the Access Control system. Access Card serial numbers and associated user numbers are documented by your alarm technician on a Program/Account Record Sheet.
To Change Levels (Turn ON/OFF):
D = Delete A Card
To delete an Access Card from your system, you do NOT need the card in your possession.
