Local communication

Controllers and readers use the local network to communicate with each other for various purposes:

  • Update events for door and elevator state
  • Update events for intrusion detection state
  • Offline communication

Find out more below.

Update events for door and elevator state#

The controller periodically and upon change sends feedback status to the reader informing it about:

  • Lockdowns
  • Schedules
  • Door unlocks
  • Door openings
  • Zone violations

If the reader stops receiving feedback status, within 10 seconds, it returns to its default feedback (blue).

Update events for intrusion detection state#

The zone controller will use the local network to arm locks assigned to its zones depending on zone state, for instance if a zone is transitioning to the AWAY state.
