Door access controllers allow you to provide scheduled and specific access for individuals and groups of users.
Outlook/Google Calendar Integration
Your infinias door controllers can read data from specific Outlook and Google calendars, and use scheduled events to direct the access schedule for your doors and/or users. For schools, churches and businesses, this provides more automaticity in door access, as many after-hours and special events are already placed in an activities calendar. Simply schedule a meeting in Outlook or your Google Calendar with the correct location, and rules setup in the infinias software will setup the lock/unlock schedule and user access in the background.
Mobile credentials allow you to provision door permissions through infinias cloud, and register users through a mobile app. Mobile Credentials requires an additional security step – users must be able to unlock their phone with their selected phone protocol (facial scan, thumbprint, passcode, etc.) and also have permissions granted through the door controller setup. This creates a multi-factor authentication protocol for your doors.
Infinias can also take advantage of geo-location services to send notifications to all users that are located on campus, such as weather alerts, special events, or security alerts.
Door Alarm Notifications
Rules built with infinias cloud allow you to send push notifications to specific administrators/users for specific alarms. For example, if a door is left open or propped open during a specific time period, you may want to send those alerts to maintenance staff. An additional rule can send these same types of alerts to a security group if the alarm is triggered after hours.
The infinias Rules Engine consists of three main concepts: events, filtering and actions. Every event that takes place, whether triggered by door access via the controller, door manipulation, or mobile app access, is checked to see if one or more rules apply to that event. Rules are impacted by filters: what schedule are we currently running? What group is the user in? What zone is the door in? What type of event was it? Based on the event and the filter, action is taken. The action may unlock/lock the door for the user. It may send an alert to maintenance or security staff. The event could trigger an alarm, or merely log the event in the events page.
Alerts can be customized for nights, weekend, holidays, and other specific schedules.
