Security Center

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 is a type of entity that 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 a type of entity that configures 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 is a type of entity that 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 cannot create credentials in Web Client, but you can assign credentials that were created in Security Desk.
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. If a credential has already been created for the visitor in Security Desk, you can assign the credential to the visitor in Web Client.
