ACCO is a modular access control system (ACS) – its architecture is based on door controllers that can work autonomously or create an entire network.
ACCO Soft Lt, an intuitive and versatile software, is used to configure the access control system and administer its resources.
The non-volatile memory of a single access control module can store system configuration settings and register over 24,500 events. All system events are continuously logged in the ACCO Soft Lt program. The software allows users to browse their list, with option to apply various filters. This grants the system administrators a clear insight into the information required at a given moment. The event list can be exported to a file in a selected format (.CSV or .XLS) for convenient archiving.
The ACCO system has an option to limit the number of possible entries for every user. This function may be used in places where a certain number of visits is purchased – e.g., in fitness clubs or swimming pools. Activation of the anti-pass back function eliminates the possibility of multiple use of one identifier to open the door under surveillance.
The presence monitoring function helps to determine when users enter, leave or are late for work. This allows to check if workers use their identifiers in accordance with company policies.
The ACCO Soft Lt software features a tool that generates presence reports. The system administrator is able to define various rules of entry/exit, using the system modules. By setting specific rules, it is possible to determine who is present in a particular room or area, and how long they have been there (data on entry/leave of workers is always collected). These are used to calculate attendance time, and generate a report, which can later be useful for calculating overtime and more.
