“Card-in / Card-out” refers to door control where users are required to present their credential both when they enter and when they exit. Requiring users to card in and out can simplify time and attendance tracking. Requiring a credential to exit a secured space can increase security and reduce the risk of theft. This application of Card In / Card Out does not provide the Anti-Passback feature used in more advanced Access Control systems.

How to configure authority for users to obtain access granted:
Access is granted based on the area armed state and a Security Level setting. The user is assigned an authority level in the area where the door is assigned. The Security Level setting in the user’s authority determines when access is granted depending on the area armed state.
