This section lists the settings found in Door configuration tabs, in the Area view task.

Door - Properties tab

In the Properties tab, you can configure the general behavior of the door. Some of the behaviors are not supported by all types of access control units. If the configured behavior is not supported by the selected access control unit, a yellow warning appears on the page, explaining why your configuration is not valid.
Unlocked for maintenance
Set to ON if the door is unlocked, and possibly open for maintenance purposes. While the door is in maintenance mode it remains unlocked, and no events are generated except for the Door offline: Device is offline event. The maintenance mode icon () is also displayed on the door icon in maps.
Standard grant time
Amount of time the door is unlocked after an Access granted event is generated.
Extended grant time
For cardholders with the property “extended grant time” turned on, the amount of time the door is unlocked after access is granted.
Standard entry time
Amount of time the cardholder has to cross the entry sensor, in addition to the Standard grant time. If no entry is detected during this time, a No entry detected event is generated. This option is only supported when your door is configured with an entry sensor. If no entry sensor is configured, entry is assumed when the door opens. If no door sensor is configured, entry is assumed when an access is granted.

For example, if the Standard grant time is 5 seconds, and the Entry time is 3 seconds, the cardholder has a total of 8 seconds to trigger the entry sensor of the door.

Extended entry time
For cardholders with the property ‘extended grant time’ turned on, the amount of time the cardholder has to cross the entry sensor, in addition to the Extended grant time. If no entry is detected during this time, a No entry detected event is generated. This option is only supported when your door is configured with an entry sensor. If no entry sensor is configured, entry is assumed when the door opens. If no door sensor is configured, entry is assumed when an access is granted.

For example, if the Extended grant time is 10 seconds, and the Extended crossing time is 10 seconds, the cardholder has a total of 20 seconds to cross the entry sensor of the door.

Door relock
Specifies when to re-lock the door after an access has been granted.
On close
Relocks when the door closes.
NOTE: This option is not supported by HID units.
Delay after opening
Relocks after the specified delay after the door has been opened.
NOTE: For HID units, the maximum delay is 27 minutes.
When door is unlocked by schedule
Select the events you want to suppress when the door is unlocked by schedule.
  • Door open too long events
  • Access granted and Access denied events
Door held
What to do when the door is held open.
Trigger event
Set to ON if the Door open too long event must be generated after the specified duration.
Reader buzzer behavior
Set to either Suppressed to never sound the buzzer, or to Suppressed when door closes to silence the buzzer as soon as the door closes.
Door forced
What to do when the door is forced.
Trigger event
Set to ON if the Door forced open event must be generated.
Reader buzzer behavior
Set to either Suppressed to never sound the buzzer, to Suppressed when door closes to stop the buzzer as soon as the door closes, or to Suppressed on access granted stop the buzzer when an access is granted, or when the door is manually locked.
Request to exit (REX)
The options in this section are generally used to decrease the number of false Request to exit events at a door.
Time to ignore REX after granted access
Ignore any requests to exits for this long after access has been granted.
Unlock on REX
Set to ON if a REX is being used, and you want to automatically grant access to all requests to exit.
NOTE: Security Center does not receive REX events if the access control unit is connected to the Access Manager. However, the REX events are received when the unit is offline and then connects back to the Access Manager.
Ignore REX events while door is open
Do not generate REX events when door is open.
Time to ignore REX after door closes
Once the door has closed, wait this long before generating any more REX events.
NOTE: HID controllers do not support this feature.
Visitor escort rule and two-person rule
Settings common to the visitor escort and the two-person rule restrictions.
Enforce two-person rule
Set to ON if two cardholders must present their credentials within a certain delay of each other in order to gain access. This rule can be enforced only on one door side or both.
Maximum delay between card presentations
Maximum delay allowed between the two card presentations to satisfy the visitor escort rule and the two-person rule restrictions.

Door - Hardware tab

In the Hardware tab, you can configure the physical wiring relationships between the access control unit and the door, and associate cameras to door sides.
Preferred unit
Access control unit that is connected to the door.
Preferred interface
Interface module that is connected to the door.
Door side
Readers, REX’s, entry sensors, and cameras associated with the door side, that match the physical wiring done on the controller and the door.
The available reader settings are:
PIN entry timeout
This sets the entry timeout for the PIN after the card has been read. For example, at the default (5 seconds), you have 5 seconds to enter all the PIN digits.
Use card and PIN
Set to ON to change the reader mode to Card and PIN and use the Schedule drop-down list to select when this mode applies. When not in a scheduled time period, the reader behaves in Card only mode.
Additional connections
Other physical connections associated with the controller and the door.

Door - Access rules tab

In the Access rules tab, you can view the access rules applied to this door.
Door access applies to
Which door sides the access rules apply to.
Both sides
Apply the same access rules to both door sides.
Individual sides
Apply individual access rules to each door side.
Access rights for door (side)
Define who has access to this door (or door side).
Access rules
Add access rules to grant (or deny) access to the door to cardholders and cardholder groups based on a schedule. This is the recommended approach.
Cardholders, cardholder groups
Add cardholders and cardholder groups to grant them access to the area at all times. Only use this approach for temporary situations.
NOTE: If all perimeter doors of an area share the same access rules, define those rules at the area level.

Door - Unlock schedules tab

In the Unlock schedules tab, you can configure scheduled periods when the door is not used for secured access, and no access rules are in effect.
Unlock schedules (free access)
Periods when the door is unlocked, and no access rules are in effect.
Exceptions to unlock schedules (controlled access)
Periods when the door is locked, and access rules apply.
