The General settings page in the Access control task lets you configure the general settings pertaining to access control, and to install and configure custom card formats.
Visitors
Cardholder groups can escort visitors
Turn this option on (default=on) to assign a cardholder group as a visitor host. Any of the cardholders that can escort visitors in the selected group can act as the visitor host.

This option is enabled when Limit visitors for single host is on.
Miscellaneous
