From Security Center Web Client, you can prevent all access through a door by deactivating (shunting) the reader.
Not all readers can be disabled from Security Center Web Client. The ability to shunt a reader depends on your access control equipment. Shunting a reader is equivalent to cutting the power to the reader. For this reason, a cardholder presenting a valid credential at the door would no longer be able to unlock the door. This however does not prevent someone from unlocking the door with a key.
What you should know
- Log on to Web Client.
- From the main menu, select the Monitoring task.
- Click the Area view ( ) tab and find the door with the reader you want to shunt.
- Drag the door to a monitoring tile.
In the Door settings dialog box, select the reader side you want
- Click Save.
The reader is now disabled, preventing access from that side.
