To enable your Axis units to make access decisions independently of a Synergis unit, activate autonomous mode in the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.
In high-latency situations, Autonomous mode improves the delay between a card read and a Door unlocked event by disabling remote authorization. The Axis unit sends the information to the Synergis unit after the decision is taken.
What you should know
NOTE: Because Autonomous mode does not contact the Synergis unit for access control decisions, there are certain limitations related to enabling the mode:
- Advanced features in Security Center are disabled.
- Credential changes, like revoking a credential's access, take longer to apply because the changes must be sent to the Axis unit during synchronization.
- Log on to the Synergis unit.
- Click .
From the hardware tree, select the Axis unit that you want to run in Autonomous
The configuration window opens.
Select the Autonomous mode check box.
- Click Save.
- (Optional) Repeat steps for all Axis units that you want to run in Autonomous mode.
The Axis unit makes access-grant decisions independently, and then send access control information to the Synergis unit.
