You can manage access control for employees and visitors to the facility using Security Center Web Client.

As a Web Client operator, you can manage the following access control entities:

A cardholder entity represents a person who can enter and exit secured areas by virtue of their credentials (typically access cards) and whose activities can be tracked. You can configure the cardholder group, credentials, and access rules that apply to the cardholder.
Cardholder group
A cardholder group is an entity that defines the common access rights of a group of cardholders. You can configure the members of the cardholder group and the access rules that apply to them.
A credential entity represents a proximity card, a biometrics template, or a PIN required to gain access to a secured area. A credential can only be assigned to one cardholder at a time. You can add credentials and assign them to cardholders.
A visitor is a person who is given temporary access to secured areas. You can add new visitors and configure them to inherit access rights from cardholder groups in the system. You can assign credentials to the visitors in Web Client.
Access Rules
An access rule entity defines a list of cardholders to whom access is either granted or denied based on a schedule. Access rules can be applied to secured areas and doors for entries and exits, or to intrusion detection areas for arming and disarming. You can add and configure access rules.
