Components of Otis Compass integration
- Config Tool
- Config Tool is the Security Center administrative application used to manage all Security Center users and to configure all Security Center entities such as areas, cameras, doors, schedules, cardholders, patrol vehicles, ALPR units, and hardware devices.
- Security Desk
- Security Desk is the unified user interface of Security Center. It provides consistent operator flow across all of the Security Center main systems, Omnicast™, Synergis™, and AutoVu™. The unique task-based design of Security Desk lets operators efficiently control and monitor multiple security and public safety applications.
- Expansion server
- An expansion server is any server machine in a Security Center system that does not host the Directory role. The purpose of the expansion server is to add to the processing power of the system.
- A reader is a sensor that reads the credential for an access control system. For example, this can be a card reader, or a biometrics scanner.
- Destination Entry Computer
- A Destination Entry Computer (DEC), also known as a terminal, is a point of entry in a destination dispatch system. A cardholder gains access to an elevator from a DEC, which is located at an elevator landing.
- Destination Entry Server
- A Destination Entry Server (DES) is a server that controls a group of Destination Entry Computers (DECs) in the Otis CompassPlus™ Destination Management system. For failover purposes, the CompassPlus™ system might also have standby servers.
- Destination Entry Redirector
- The Destination Entry Redirector (DER) is a redirector that manages the network routes of the Otis CompassPlus™ Destination Management system.
