Access to doors is controlled by a Security Level selection in the user’s authority, assigned to the area where the door is assigned. Depending on the security level, access is granted when the area is armed, disarmed or not at all. It is selected in the same location as all user permissions and may be different from area to area if different authority levels were assigned to each area. For example, a user may be permitted use keypad commands in two areas but door control in only one and still limited to the current arming state.
Security Level Options:
Disarming after access is granted while an area armed: Because access may be granted to open a door while an area is armed, a method of disarming must be considered in order to prevent false alarms. Disarming may be performed at a nearby keypad or automatically when access is granted. A selection for Disarm Level is also made in each authority level along with Security Level and other permissions. Depending on the selection the area may be either disarmed or reduced from All-On to Part-On Instant, thereby maintaining a level of protection for occupants in the area.
