ATS Control Panel Manager's manual User identification All users of the Advisor MASTER system need PIN codes and/or cards. The PIN code has between four and nine digits and is unique for each user. It is a combination of numbers between 0 and 9. The PIN code and/or a card are programmed to let a user do specific tasks, such as arm or disarm the system.
• A door group for a night shift worker may allow their PIN code to be used to open a door between 23:00 and 07:00 only. Using a PIN code When you enter your PIN code on the Advisor MASTER keypad, each key pressed is indicated by * on the display.
ATS Control Panel Manager's manual Duress The duress function activates a silent signal to alert security personnel. For example, if you are asked, under threat, to breach your system security (for example, forced to disarm the system), this function lets you do so while at the same time activating the system duress facility.
Door opening option An Advisor MASTER keypad, Card Reader or combination of both can be used to open a door by entering a door code or badging a card. Your door code is related to your PIN code. It varies, depending on whether your PIN code has been programmed to allow you to arm/disarm your system, as well as open doors.
ATS Control Panel Manager's manual 3. In most systems with access control, an "Alarm Code Prefix" is used. The Alarm Code Prefix is the number of digits not to enter at the beginning of your full PIN code to make the door code and is programmed by the installer. For example. Alarm Code Prefix = 2 digits.
Arming your system When to arm You arm your premises, or areas in it, when they are unoccupied. Then if an unwanted event occurs, such as someone forcing a door open, this sets off the alarm. The time limit when arming Once you have armed the system, you must leave the area within a preset time as otherwise you will set off the alarm.
