Alarm Area Mode

In this mode, you use normal user access to go in and out of areas based on the users’ area role settings. Note this applies only to areas set for Limit Area and will only allow disarm or partial disarm when this setting is enabled. Arming this area only requires a single user.

Dual Alarm Area

In this mode when the keypad is set for single area login, and the area is configured for the dual user, the keypad will prompt for two (2) value users ( user ID /PIN ) to allow disarming of the single area. Disarming means disarm or partial. Any user can arm the area, and dual is not required.

Dual Supervise Alarm Area

This is same as dual alarm area except at least one of the users must be a supervisor.

Access Control Mode

In this mode, you use normal card access to go in and out of areas. The readers are assigned to do read valid cards and determine if two (2) valid cards are required to enter.

In all cases of dual area operation, the user counts are maintained, and people are tracked through the areas.

Dual User Area

ARCO Platform enables you to configure an area requiring a minimum of two (2) users present at a given time. The first person to enter will be prompted after valid entry for a dual user so that two (2) people will then be marked in the new dual user area. Any subsequent user can enter, and any user can leave so long as there are at least two (2) people present. When the last two (2) people leave, they will be prompted to both badges to leave.

Dual Supervisor Area

Similar to Dual User Area except at least one user has to be a supervisor.

Entry / Exit Time Attendance

For this mode of operation, when the out reader is used, the user is marked as being out of the building. This mode can also be used for Time Attendance; if the door category is In/Out, then the keypad readers will show the entry or exit message along with the Granted message to feedback to the user they are entering or leaving.
