In case of an emergency, operators can override the existing access control rules to lock or unlock access to floors from the Monitoring task in Security Desk.

What you should know

Normally, the access rules are applied according to the schedule. The rules are defined by the security profile of the Destination Entry Computer (DEC). During an emergency, you can override the access rules by applying one of the following parameters to a floor:
Lock
Overrides the current access rules and denies cardholders access to the floor. Only exempted cardholders or cardholder groups can access the floor. When a floor is locked, the operation mode of a DEC does not change according to the usual schedule.
Unlock
Overrides the current access rules and allows all cardholders free access to the floor.

Procedure

  1. From the homepage in Security Desk, open the Monitoring task.
  2. To lock a floor, do one of the following:
    • Right-click a floor entity in the area view and click Otis Compass > Lock ().
    • Drag a floor entity from the area view to a canvas tile, and then click Lock () in the Otis Compass widget.
  3. To unlock a floor, do one of the following:
    • Right-click a floor entity in the area view and click Otis Compass > Unlock ().
    • Drag a floor entity from the area view to a canvas tile, and then click Unlock () in the Otis Compass widget.

Results

The access control mode of the floor changes, and the Operation mode changed event is triggered.
