This section lists the settings found in the Synergis™ access control unit Portal tab, in the Access control task. This tab opens a window to the Synergis™ unit's web-based interface (Synergis™ Appliance Portal) which allows you to configure and maintain the unit.

  • Change the security password required to log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  • Configure the network settings on the Synergis™ unit so it works on your system.
  • Enroll and configure the interface modules attached to the Synergis™ unit.
