WGY-ESP provides for controlling access through card reader controlled doors based on the card user’s access authorization permission.
For each cardholder, a configurable Personal Identification Number (PIN) may be assigned, so a valid card and the associated PIN will be required for entry. Each card reader is individually configurable to support the following modes of operation:
- reader only, or
- reader plus PIN, or
- PIN only.
WGY-ESP offers the integration of various access technologies including:
- Smart Card proximity reader (read and write)
- Smart Card W/ contact (read and write)
- Biometric readers
- Wiegand-effect swipe and insert readers
- Magnetic stripe swipe and insert readers
- Short-range proximity readers
- Long-range proximity readers
- AVI tag readers
- Barcode swipe readers
- Reader/keypad combinations
- Keypad-only applications
The system provides the capability to enable/disable users in a simple way using block enable and disable commands.
The definition of reader operation parameters (e.g., location, unlock time, time-out) on a per door basis is provided by the system.
Remote Processors (RP) can be configured through the Primary Host or workstations. Modifications in the database will automatically update all Remote Processors affected by the changes without further operator intervention.
Auxiliary relays can be independently controlled in each RTAP or RTMP such that a no-reader controlled door can be locked or unlocked via time zones or on a manual command basis.
In order to switch doors to or from free-access status, door control relays can be activated and deactivated via time zones or on manual command. Up to 96 system-wide time zones are supported.
User information is entered and stored via the cardholder database. The employee database supports 10 (ten) user-definable fields in addition to the standard system-supplied fields.
For access control purposes, the system will handle up to 32 fixed and 32 variable holidays.
The number of access records archived at the Primary Host fileserver is only limited by the size of the storage device.
Standard access control functions are provided from the workstations and include:
- Entry of access control configuration data
- Entry of access control operating data
- Storage of access control data
- Download of user and configuration data to Remote Processors
- Editing of access control data
- Archiving of access transactions
- Retrieval of access records from Remote Processors (RP)
- Editing/display of cardholder status
- Generation of management reports
WGY-ESP provides two levels of antipassback control: Perimeter and Global. Each controlled zone is user configurable to either perimeter or global antipassback.
Perimeter Antipassback Control: Antipassback checking is done at the entrance and exit point of a controlled zone. No antipassback checking is done within the zone.
Global Antipassback Control: Access requests will be check not only at the entrance and exit points, but also at ID points within a controlled zone. This can provide a higher level of antipassback security and more effective control of movement within a zone.
When an access request is made in a Global Antipassback controlled zone, the Primary host will verify that the person making the request is located in the expected location and has the authorization to enter the destination zone. Areas that have portals with readers only on one side can still have antipassback violations checked in one direction. If the person’s last logged location matches the user’s current location, access will be granted; if not, access will be denied and an alarm will be generated.
