During emergency evacuations, people must gather to designated assembly points, and confirm their presence by badging their credentials on site. The corresponding cardholders are then mustered to the mustering area in Security Center.

What you should know

All cardholders are moved when their credential is presented to the USB reader, regardless of the cardholder status. However, operators receive a warning message if disabled cardholders, cardholders with lost, stolen, or inactive credentials, and expired visitors are mustered.


  1. Connect the USB reader to the client workstation.
  2. From the home page in Security Desk or Config Tool, open the Mustering task.
  3. In the General configuration pane, select the Card reader type from the list, and then click Refresh ().
    The Reader connection status changes from Not connected to Present a card.

  4. Click the Mustering area field to open the Select mustering area dialog box, and select an area to muster cardholders to.
  5. (Optional) Click the button to browse for a different folder to save the current file in.
  6. (Optional) Select the Load pictures check box to display cardholder pictures in the report pane.
  7. Do one of the following:


The cardholder associated to the presented credential is moved to the mustering area, and the People counting task is updated.
