    Dealing with Emergencies
     

 

    Customize your security system to respond to emergencies according to your exact specifications. Any relay controlled output device such as sirens, doors, lights, communication line, may be programmed to trigger automatically.
     

 

    For example, should your security system sensors detect an emergency, it can automatically:  
       
      Set off audible alarms and alarm signals and inform all personnel.
       
      Page or dial-up relevant authorities such as the fire brigade or police.
       
      Initiate a lockdown sequence.

    Matrix V also comes with a sophisticated card management system, which enables you to set up basic User Cards with User Details, Anti-Passback options, Card Expiry and Access Time Zones. All card access is logged, and cardholders can be traced down and located according to the last zone they accessed with their cards. Matrix V supports storage for a virtually unlimited number of card details on-server.

Such doors can only be accessed by a holder of a normal user card and another special Escort card, which, for example, may be held by a security officer posted at the door point or a trusted executive officer.
     
TemporaryCards    These cards are meant for normal staff members who have somehow lost their normal user cards. These temporary cards are tagged with the staff member's identity number in the security system so that his or her movements may still be monitored within secure areas. They have a short expiry date, usually a day.
     
Visitor Cards    These cards are meant for visitors to a secure area. They have a short expiry date, usually a day, a few hours or even a one card that expires once the cardholder leaves the secure area. They are also restricted time in terms of the areas in which they may access. Visitor cards are used specifically with the Visitor Manager Module.
