To configure the input contacts, output relays, and readers attached to the Axis controller, you must make your changes in Config Tool and the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.

Before you begin

What you should know

  • Output relays and readers are configured on the Hardware page of the Synergis™ unit in the Synergis™ Appliance Portal or in Config Tool.
  • Input contacts are configured on the Hardware page and Peripherals page of the Synergis™ unit in Config Tool.

Procedure

To configure the output settings of an Axis controller:

  1. Log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  2. Click Configuration > Hardware.
  3. For A1601 controllers, configure the auxiliary I/O ports to be used as inputs or outputs, as required.
  4. For A1001 controllers, configure the settings, as required.
    For more information about each setting, see the Axis documentation.

To configure the input settings of an Axis controller:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Access control task, and click the Roles and units view.
  2. From the entity tree, select the Synergis™ unit, and click the Peripherals tab.
  3. Expand the Axis controller that you want to modify, select an input, and then click Edit ().
    Peripherals page of an Axis controller in Config Tool.
  4. In the Edit input dialog box, make changes, as required.
    Example:
    Edit Input dialog box for an Axis input in Config Tool.
    NOTE: The available settings depend on the input that you select. On A1601 units, I/O 1, 2, 3, 4, 13, and 14 cannot be supervised when configured as inputs.
    Name
    Input device name.
    Logical ID
    Must be unique among all peripherals attached to the same unit.
    Shunted
    Select this option to ignore the inputs. Once shunted, the state of the input remains at Normal, regardless of how you trigger it.
    NOTE: If the door is forced open, the Door forced open event is still generated in Security Center, even if the door input is shunted.
    Contact type
    Set the Normal state of the input contact and its supervision mode.
    Not supervised/Normally closed
    The normal state of the input contact is closed, and the access control unit does not report that the input is in the trouble state.
    Not supervised/Normally open
    The normal state of the input contact is open, and the access control unit does not report if the input is in the trouble state.
    4-state supervised/Normally closed
    The normal state of the input contact is closed, and the access control unit reports when the input is in the trouble state.
    4-state supervised/Normally open
    The normal state of the input contact is open, and the access control unit reports when the input is in the trouble state.
  5. Click Save, and then click Apply.
