Secura Key Offers Lockdown and Door Status Features
In response to many requests from dealers, system integrators and end users, Secura Key has now released SK-NET Version 5.20 Access Control System Software, featuring two new, critically important features: System Lockdown and Real-Time Door Status Reporting.
Security officials at schools, courts, government offices and other facilities that may be targets of crime or terrorism need the ability to lock or disable groups of doors with a single command in order to react to internal or external threats, and they also need to know the real-time status of controlled doors in their facility.
These features work with either the Secura Key SK-ACPE-LE or the NOVA.16 (SK-MRCP) access control panels and Smart Readers.
SK-NET provides three progressively more secure Lockdown levels:
Level 1 - Global Lock - cancels all Manual or Door Zone unlock commands.
Level 2 - Global Inactive for Lockdown Group - also places all doors in inactive mode.
Level 3 - Global Lockdown for Lockdown Group - also disables REX or ‘remote open’ inputs.
The Door Status icon color indicates off-normal Door Status conditions:
- No color indicates all doors are secure.
- Green indicates unlocked doors.
- Yellow indicates doors held or propped open.
- Red indicates doors forced open.
SK-NET allows the designation of override cards that can be issued to campus police or first responders (police, fire or EMTs.) Override cards allow access at any reader, whether inactive or locked, providing authorities with the access required to capture or neutralize an assailant.
