The term end-of-line refers to the termination point or the final point in a circuit or system. It is typically used to indicate the end of a communication or control line, where a device or component is connected.

In access control systems, end-of-line typically refers to the point where a sensor or detection device (e.g. contact sensor, request-to-exit device, motion detector) is connected to a control panel. For example, a contact sensor may be connected as part of such a line, and the control panel monitors the status of that line. If the line is tampered with or the circuit is broken (e.g., someone attempts to bypass the sensor), the control panel can detect the change in the line's status and initiate an appropriate response, such as activating an alarm or sending notifications to a security team.

Kisi can detect compromised wiring

Kisi offers enhanced configuration options for detecting cut or short statuses in your wiring. These critical events will be conveniently displayed in the Events history as Controller tampered events, providing you with immediate visibility into any tampering attempts.

You can enable Kisi to detect compromised wiring when configuring contact sensors or request-to-exit devices.
