Synergis™ IX is an OEM product. For this reason, it uses a different set of terms from Security Center.
The following table lists the terminology difference between Synergis™ IX and Security Center.
|Synergis™ IX||Security Center (glossary terms are in italic)|
|Area||Intrusion detection area.
NOTE: An area in Security Center has a much broader meaning. It can either represent a concept (used for grouping) or a physical area.
|Access level||Access rule.
NOTE: Access rules are configured in Security Center and pushed to the Synergis™ IX controller.
|Controller||A Synergis™ IX controller is represented by two different entities in Security Center:|
|Door group||Secured area.
NOTE: In Security Center, a secured area is a physical area with the access control features enabled.
|Expander module||Downstream module or downstream panel.|
NOTE: In Security Center, operator typically refers to a Security Desk user, while user refers to all types of Security Center users: administrators, supervisors, investigators, operators, and so on.
NOTE: A user in Security Center corresponds to a user account with a username, a password, and a set of privileges. Cardholders are configured in Security Center and pushed to the Synergis™ IX controller.
|User group||Cardholder group.
NOTE: A user group in Security Center is used to define the common privileges and access rights for a group of users. A user belonging to a user group inherits the properties of the user group. Likewise, a cardholder belonging to a cardholder group inherits the properties of the cardholder group.
|Zone (Input)||Input (only digital input).|
