STEP 2: Explanation of ACCESS POINT 1 and ACCESS POINT 2.

There are two ACCESS POINTS (directions) - ACCESS POINT 1 and ACCESS POINT 2.

Access Units and IP Intercoms with one reader please set as ACCESS POINT 1 (follow STEP 3).

If there are connected extension modules as well:
a) All extension readers that are on the same door side as the main unit please set as ACCESS POINT 1 (the same like the main unit, follow STEP 3).


b) All extension readers that are on the opposite door side than the main unit please set as ACCESS POINT 2 (follow STEP 3).


 

STEP 3: Configure ACCESS POINT 1 and ACCESS POINT 2 in devices.

Go to device´s web management. You can use Access Commander feature:

Go to section Hardware - Extenders and select ACCESS POINT 1 or ACCESS POINT 2 for access modules.

ACCESS POINT 1 is substituted by "Door Entry" value, ACCESS POINT 2 is substituted by "Door Exit" value.

"Door Entry" = ACCESS POINT 1

"Door Exit" = ACCESS POINT 2

If there is only ACCESS POINT 1, please go to section Hardware - Door - Exit Rulesenable ACCESS POINT 1 (Entry Rules) and disable ACCESS POINT 2 (Exit Rules).
If both ACCESS POINTS are used in the device, then please enable both ACCESS POINTS (Entry Rules and Exit Rules).
