The Access Manager role manages and monitors access control units on the system.
The Access Manager keeps the units updated with the access control settings configured in Security Center, in real-time or on a schedule, so that they can make independent access control decisions whether they are connected to the Access Manager or not.
The Access Manager also logs the access control events in the database for access control investigation and maintenance reports. All events generated by the units (access granted, access denied, door open, etc.) are forwarded by the Access Manager, through the Directory, to the concerned parties on the system.
Multiple instances of this role can be created on the system.
