Automate your Fire Evacuation procedure
With the optional Fire Link module, Synergy Access can automatically open gates, doors and turnstiles when a Fire Alarm is triggered.
Synergy Access can also play an important role in your muster/evacuation procedure as reporting is provided with a fire report for rapid analysis following an emergency incident. If Synergy Access is connected to your fire panel, this can also be automatically e-mailed to appropriate managers or printed at any networked printer(s).
To ensure the same access control credentials cannot be used twice to enter a door, Synergy Access features anti-passback, which prevents users passing their card to another person after they gain access. The anti-passback feature can be configured to be set to be active during particular times, days or even be set to stay active permanently.
ANPR (Automatic Numberplate Recognition)
With the optional ANPR module, ANPR system server and a compatible camera to read vehicle registration number plates (VRN), Synergy Access can also control access to bollard and car park / entrance barriers by simply identifying authorised vehicles and granting access accordingly. Number plates can be added/removed from the database via the Synergy Access browser-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) by an administrator, and this is then pushed in near real-time to the local ANPR system server which controls access. This is known as a hybrid approach as, for convenience, all administration is completed via the browser-based GUI but the data is stored at the access control point on site.
