With double-badge activation, an authorized cardholder can unlock a door and trigger actions by badging twice. The door remains unlocked and the action remains active until the next double-badge event.
A double-badge or double-swipe is defined as two badge reads from the same cardholder within the standard grant time configured for the door. The first read unlocks the door; the second read triggers the configured action.
How it works
Double-badge activation requires doors that are controlled by a Synergis™ unit, and a DoubleSwipe custom field configured for door entities in Security Center. This custom field identifies the cardholder group whose members are authorized to perform double-badge actions.
- Cardholder activities
- Credential activities
- Door activities
- Area activities
