In Access Commander, you can setup 2N RFID/Keypad/Bluetooth/Fingeprint equipped IP units to control which floors authorized user can access.
The whole scenario allows interconnection of 2N IP units with AXIS A9188 I/O Relay Modules, which tells the lift which floor can be accessed after a person authorizes using the 2N IP unit as shown on the following image:
Types of most typical scenarios are (please also see image above):
Currently, a maximum of 5 AXIS A9188 can be connected with one 2N unit making maximum of 40 floors supported (1 I/O Relay Module can handle up to 8 floors).
The following guide will explain, how to set the whole scenario to allow persons access to certain floors in the lift using their credentials (RFID, Code, Bluetooth or Fingerprint).
STEP 1: Configure AXIS A9188 to allow communication with 2N unit.
Navigate to section System Options -> Security -> HTTPS choose certificate from previous step and allow Administrator to use HTTPS.
Self-signed certificate and HTTPS protocol settings can be also set the first time you access AXIS A9188 device before creating root password by clicking on button Use HTTPS
STEP 2: Configure 2N unit to communicate with AXIS 9188 I/O Relay Module
Connect the 2N unit to the AXIS A9188 I/O Relay Module in section Hardware - Lift Control by specifying the IP address of AXIS A9188 and administrator user (root for example).
All AXIS A9188 I/O Relay Modules connected to the same 2N unit needs to have same administrator user with same password (root for example) - maximum of 5 AXIS A9188 I/O Relay Modules can be connected to one 2N unit allowing for maximum of 40 floors
STEP 3: Setup floor access to users using 2N®Access Commander
Navigate to Access Rules and begin creating rules to define which zones or floors each group may access. For example, the group ‘Company A Sales Team’ can be paired with the zone ‘first floor’ to allow the users of that group access to the first floor.
Optionally, Time profiles can be set within Access rules which will restrict access to that floor within desired time frames.
If none or Empty Time profile is used it means access will be allowed 24/7.
Enable lift control usage in added devices in the device details page in Access Commander.
If you add to Access Commander device with lift control license, it will become automatically enabled for Lift Control)
To finally setup which users can access which floor, in device details go to Management and create Floor assignment according to physical connection of relays between AXIS A9188 and the lift itself (for example relay io_1_1 on AXIS A9188 is physically connected to lift that 1st floor will become available for Groups of users which have in Access rules defined rules for Zone 1st floor).
Since up to 5 AXIS A9188 can be connected, you need to know which relay belongs to which AXIS A9188 I/O Relay Module:
io_1_1 in Floor list stands for first connected AXIS A9188 to 2N unit and its first relay
io_1_2 in Floor list stands for first connected AXIS A9188 to 2N unit and its second relay
io_2_1 in Floor list stands for second connected AXIS A9188 to 2N unit and its first relay
From now all users, which are part of Groups associated in Access rules with Zone 1st floor and have valid credentials, when they authorize on 2N IP unit in lift cabin will be able to use lift button for 1st floor.
(Optional) STEP 4: Setup floor to allow access to anyone who press lift floor button
In order to allow access to floor without need to authorize person using RFID card, in device details go to Management and create Floor assignment according to physical connection of relay between AXIS A9188 and lift itself (for example relay io_1_2 on AXIS A9188 is physically connected to lift which 2nd floor will become available for anyone who just press 2nd floor button in lift).
From now, anyone who press button for 2nd floor will be able to access that floor.
Optionally, Time profile can be set, which will restrict access to that floor for desired time frames.
If none or Empty Time profile is used it means 24/7 allowed access.
