When Synergis™ IX is enabled in your system, you have additional door settings to configure.

Before you begin

What you should know

Door configurations are pushed from Security Center to Synergis™ IX controllers.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task and select the door () you want to configure.
  2. Click the Synergis™ IX tab.
  3. In the Entering/Exiting section, configure the following:
    Entering intrusion
    Intrusion detection area that you enter when using the entry side of the door.
    Exiting intrusion
    Intrusion detection area that you exit when using the exit side of the door.
  4. In the General options section, configure the following:
    Always allow REX
    When enabled, the reader always allows a Request to exit event, even if the door is forced open. This does not restart the forced door or door alarm operation. When disabled, REX input operates only when the door is closed.
    Recycle door open time on REX
    When enabled, the reader extends the door open time when the REX is received. The REX must be received during the normal open time or during the pre-alarm time for the timer to be recycled. Pressing the request to exit after the door has been open too long requires the door to be closed. This option does not affect the ability of the request to exit action to unlock the door. When disabled, REX input does not alter the door open time after the door has been opened.
    Recycle REX time
    When enabled, the door open time restarts, allowing the door to be held open and the REX pressed at each point the pre-alarm starts, silencing the pre-alarm and restarting the open timer. This allows a door to be held open while furniture is being moved or to provide extended access for users with reduced mobility.
    Maintain REX
    When enabled, the door stays unlocked for as long as the REX button is held down.
    Pulse reader beeper on REX
    When enabled, the reader associated with the door produces a double beep when the REX button is pressed.
    Door forced sends door open
    When enabled, the reader expander processes Door forced open events as Door opened events. When disabled, the reader processes Door forced open events as normal.
  5. In the Schedule options section, configure the following:
    Always check unlock schedule
    When enabled, the door revalidates the unlock schedule it is assigned each minute. This prevents the door from being controlled and locked when it should be unlocked. This option also prevents schedule and area control from operating correctly and, if enabled, prevents the follow inside and follow outside area status from operating. Enabling this option allows the prevent unlock on arming and normal scheduling operations to occur.
    Enable open/close events on schedule
    When enabled, the door does not log a Door opened event when it is unlocked on schedule. This prevents the door from filling the event buffer with events that are not needed.
    Schedule operates late to open
    When enabled, the door does not unlock on schedule until the first access has been accepted at the door.
  6. In the Lock/Unlock options section, configure the following:
    Door lock follows inside area
    When enabled, the door unlocks if the inside area is disarmed. If no arm/disarm schedule is set, the Area Disarmed OR Schedule Valid Unlock Door option must be enabled for this function to operate.
    Door lock follows outside area
    When enabled, the door unlocks if the outside area is disarmed. If no arm/disarm schedule is set, the Area Disarmed OR Schedule Valid Unlock Door option must be enabled for this function to operate.
    Prevent unlock on schedule if inside area armed
    When enabled, the door does not unlock when the schedule is valid if the inside area is armed. Use this option with the Late open option to prevent false alarms by entry of personnel before an area is disarmed. This option only operates if the Door lock follows inside area and Door lock follows outside area options are disabled. To prevent unlocking and locking based on schedule and area status, set the Area disarmed and schedule valid, unlock door and Area disarmed or schedule valid, unlock door options to the required values.
    Prevent unlock on schedule if outside area armed
    When enabled, the door does not unlock when the schedule is valid if the outside area is armed. Use this option with the late open option to prevent false alarms by entry of personnel before an area is disarmed.
    Area disarmed and schedule valid, unlock door
    When enabled, the door unlocks if the door unlock schedule is valid and the inside or outside area is disarmed depending on the options set for Prevent unlock on schedule if inside area armed and Prevent unlock on schedule if outside area armed.
    Area disarmed or schedule valid, unlock door
    When enabled, the door unlocks if the door unlock schedule is valid or the inside or outside area is disarmed depending on the options set for Prevent unlock on schedule if inside area armed and Prevent unlock on schedule if outside area armed.
    Enable access on REX/REN events
    When enabled, the door generates a Request to exit or Request to enter event if the door opens while the door is unlocked from a request to exit. If the door remains closed, a No entry detected event is generated.
  7. In the Advanced options section, configure the following:
    Lock out REX when inside area armed
    When enabled, the door denies a request to exit when the inside area has been armed to prevent egress from an armed area.
    Deny entry if inside area is armed
    When enabled, the door denies entry if the inside area is armed.
    Deny exit if outside area is armed
    When enabled, the door prevents any exit if the outside area is armed.
    Prompt user for access reason code
    When enabled, the user is prompted on the reader expander's associated keypad to enter their reason for access. The user must enter the reason before access is granted.
    Enable access on door unlock events
    When enabled, the door generates an Entry assumed event if the door opens while the door is unlocked after entry has been granted. If the door remains closed, an No entry detected event is generated.
    Update user area when passback disabled
    (Not yet supported) When enabled, the door updates the user's current area, even if the door is not programmed with card antipassback. This can be used to track the last area the user entered.
    Keypad address
    The RS-485 address of the keypad you want associated to this door.
  8. Click Apply.
