1 The maximum supported value is 255 seconds.
2 The Extended grant time cannot be shorter than the Standard grant time.
3 Entry sensor is not supported with Mercury integrations. In the absence of the entry sensor, Security Center uses the door sensor, and the Entry detected event is generated when the door sensor is triggered. In the absence of both sensors, Security Center generates the Entry assumed event when access is granted.
4 A door that is configured to relock after opening with a non-zero timeout will relock after the grant time expires or on close, whichever occurs first. The set timeout is not taken into account. With the Relock on close option, the door relocks either when the door closes or at the end of the grant time (whichever comes first).
5 For the Reader buzzer behavior setting, the options Suppressed and Suppressed when door closes are supported in both online and offline operation modes. The option Suppressed when access is granted is treated as Suppressed when door closes.
6 The Maximum delay between card presentations setting from Config Tool is not applied. The value is fixed at 15 seconds for all Mercury controllers.
7 Two credentials owned by the same cardholder can be used to gain entry.
The reader LED stays green while the reader waits for the second credential to be presented.
8 The Synergis™ unit must be connected to the Access Manager.
9 Supported for doors, but not for elevators.
10 Multiple door sensors per door is not supported.
11 Multiple door lock outputs per door is not supported.
12 The visitor escort rule requires the FeatureRichLayout database setting to be active on your Synergis™ unit.
13 A visitor who requires an escort can be escorted by any cardholder who is someone else's escort. The specific escort that is assigned to the visitor in Security Center is not enforced by the controller.
14 REX unlocks doors regardless of interlock. If REX is used, then see Configuring Mercury controller settings in Synergis™ Appliance Portal and Mercury native area control limitations.
15 Not recommended for Card-In/REX-Out doors because a cardholder's presence in the area cannot be verified.
16 Floor tracking is not supported. All floor buttons must be controlled by one Mercury controller. Output relays from different boards can be used, but must be assigned in consecutive blocks. This means that the last output on board A must be followed by the first output on board B if the elevator is configured across multiple boards.
17 If the zone is linked to a door through event-to-action, and the Mercury controller is operating offline (there is no connection to the Synergis™ unit), the zone does not work.
18 Changing the state of the inputs of an interface triggers an event, even within the Reactivation threshold.
19 Due to a Mercury limitation, when a door it set to lock on close, the Door locked event is generated when the door opens instead of closes.
20 Feature can work offline if the Mercury native area control is enabled. For more information, see Configuring Mercury controller settings in Synergis™ Appliance Portal and Mercury native area control limitations.
21 The "AND" operator is not supported on Mercury controllers.
