The single door controller is usually mounted above the door or behind a false ceiling and act as the ‘brains’, refusing entry or allowing staff to enter based on rules sent from the timeware® software. The access terminal stores all transactions locally, passing data periodically back to the software.
Door forced / door ajar
The timeware® administrator can specify which doors an employee can enter on certain days and even certain times. These rules are stored within a ‘terminal policy’ which means that a change affecting many people can be made in one place with the changes affecting many staff within seconds!
All access control information is available to be viewed by timeware® operators with the correct permissions. The audit screen holds many years of access transactions and is a great tool for identifying who went where especially when biometrics are used rather than prox cards (which can be lent to other people).
