Panel Specifications - Honeywell Galaxy Dimension GD Sereis Quick Start Manual


Access Control
Door Control Modules (DCMs) can be added onto the
Galaxy bus lines to add fully integrated access control.
Each DCM allows two Wiegand readers to be connected to
control two separate doors or one door with an entry and
exit reader.
Group based Access control
Access control works best when Group Mode is enabled
(see above). Each access reader can then be programmed
to control access to a particular group (or area/subsystem)
within the building. Only users who have access privileges
to that group will be granted access via that reader.
Users and Access Templates
Every user on the system must be allocated an access
template. An access template is a list of groups and time
schedules that will dictate which groups and when a user
is able to gain access to. This method means that if there
are multiple doors leading into one group or area, then a
user will be given access to all those doors in one move.
This reduces programming time and complexity.
The Access Template to be used for each user is chosen
within each user's options in menu 42.1.11 = Template.
There are multiple access templates available (dependant
on panel variant) and each one is fully customisable.
Access Templates are programmed in menu
45.7 = Access Templates. In each Access Template each
group on the system must be allocated a time schedule as
required. If no schedule is allocated to a particular group
(default) in the list then users will have full access through
any doors leading to that group. When a schedule is
allocated, access will be granted during the OFF periods of
the schedule and denied during the ON periods. Time
schedules are programmed in menu 65 = Timers.
Time schedules
A Time schedule is a weekly list of on and off times and
can be used to control the security of any object that it is
assigned to. When a timer is ON it forces a secure state
(system set, access denied etc). When a timer is in the
OFF state, it causes an un-secure state (system unset or
access allowed etc). Up to 28 on or off times can be
programmed into each weekly schedule. Up to 67
schedules are available dependant on panel variant.
For each time schedule, it is possible to allocate one of 32
Holiday Calendars. A Holiday Calendar is a list of 20
holiday periods, each with a start and end date, which
suspend normal timer operation. During a holiday period,
one of two things can happen.
1. The timer is frozen in its current state (on or off)
and will resume operation from the next event
when the holiday period finishes.
2. An alternate time schedule can be appointed to be
used for the duration of the holiday period.
