The UltraAccess module provides access control features to the UltraTime Enterprise software for a variety of environments, including doors, turnstiles, elevators and parking gates.
The system can restrict employee access based on location, time and day of week. All accesses, whether granted or not, are logged to the system’s access log which may be viewed or printed at any time.
Popular hardware utilized with UltraAccess include HID Edge Evo® controllers, IBC controllers and ATS Maximus data terminals.
Door access may be configured to work in an ‘off-line’ mode for companies who do not have real-time access control requirements. In this mode, UltraTime downloads employee information to the access control terminals periodically. From that point on, the individual terminals determine whether entry is granted or denied for that particular access point.
The ‘on-line’ access control option is designed for companies that have highly fluctuating access schedules or require real-time processing of access control requests, such as high security areas that might require security staff notification upon illegal access attempts. UltraAccess configured in ‘on-line’ mode validates all access requests from the access control terminal network. This allows a supervisor to alter an employee’s access status from either the access control terminal (hardware dependent), or the central server and the employee’s new access status would take effect immediately.
