Evacuation Assistant is integrated in Security Center as a plugin, and works with multiple components so you can use your access control system for mustering during emergency evacuations.

Components

Evacuation Assistant portal
The Evacuation Assistant portal is an HTML application that you can access through any web browser. The web server is hosted on the server that runs the plugin. No internet connection is required to use this portal.
Mustering clients
The mustering client is the device from which you log on to the Evacuation Assistant portal. This can be any device that can open a web browser and connect to the Evacuation Assistant service, for example, a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop.
Evacuation Assistant service
The Evacuation Assistant service process starts when the Evacuation Assistant plugin role is created. The clients connect to the Evacuation Assistant service, and the Evacuation Assistant service communicates with the Evacuation Assistant interface. The Evacuation Assistant portal connects directly to the Evacuation Assistant service through a URL.
Evacuation Assistant plugin
The Evacuation Assistant plugin is installed on a Security Center server and client workstations and runs as a plugin role on the server.
NOTE: The plugin role database contains the area configuration and a snapshot of the list of cardholders present in the areas that evacuations were started from.
