Available Door Options

  • Buzzer (OSDP) allows the reader to beep when a card is read.

  • LED (OSDP) allows the reader LED to turn on and operate the same as a Wiegand reader LED, lighting green when the module relay activates. If disabled, the reader LED is turned off and does not operate in any condition.

  • Card (Authorization) enables the use of cards for any of the doors.

  • Fire Zone indicates this custom output triggers with a fire alarm.

  • Fire Exit allows the door to unlock during a fire so people can exit the area.

  • Include in Lockdown allow this door to be included when a lockdown is initiated.

  • Door Sensor allows a motion detector mounted near the door to trigger a request to exit.

  • In Prop Time, enter the number of seconds that you want to allow the door to remain open without triggering an alert.

  • Door Forced Message sends a status message any time a door is forced open.

  • Request to Exit (REX) requires people to request exit. REX is usually triggered by motion near the door or a button press.

  • Unlock on REX appears when the Request To Exit toggle is switched on. Default is switched on. To allow the door to unlock when a Request to Exit input is received, enable the toggle. This is typically for magnetic locks. To allow the door to remain locked when a Request to Exit input is received, disable the toggle. This is typically for door strikes.
