4. NORMAL, SECURE & MASTER USERS
The Digy Elite accepts up to 500 users and provides entry via the use of PIN codes. Each user is provided with two code memory slots,
Memory Slot 1 (Primary Code) and Memory Slot 2 (Secondary Code).
The way in which the two memory slots are programmed determines a users access level and also determines the way in which the
Digy Elite grants access in its three Modes of Operation.
There are three user levels:
Normal User
A Normal User only has a Primary Code and is only granted access when the Digy Elite is in Normal or Bypass Mode.
Secure User
A Secure User must have a Primary and Secondary Code programmed, the two codes must not be the same. The Secure User can
gain access when the Digy Elite is in any of its three Modes of Operation. In Normal Mode the Secure User must use their Primary Code
to gain entry. In Secure Mode the Secure User must present both their Primary and Secondary Codes in order to gain entry.
Master User
A Master User must have both Primary and Secondary Codes programmed with the same PIN code. The Master User can gain access
during any Mode of Operation by presenting their PIN code to the controller. (The Master User is convenient but is less secure than a
Secure User).
5. Modes of Operation
The Digy Elite has 3 Modes of Operation:
1. Normal Mode
Normal Mode is the default mode
and the Mode LED is green. In
Normal Mode the door is locked
until a Primary Code is presented to the controller. Special codes such as "Open Code" and "Auxiliary Code" are active in Normal mode.
(see par. 8 e 9).
2.
Bypass Mode.
In Bypass mode the Mode LED is orange. In Bypass Mode, access to the premises is dependent on
whether the controller's Lock Strike Relay is programmed for Fail Safe Operation or Fail Secure
Operation.

When the Lock Strike Relay is programmed for Fail Secure Operation, the door is locked until the Door Bell Button is
pressed.

When the Lock Strike Relay is programmed for Fail Safe Operation, the door is constantly unlocked.
3. Secure Mode
In secure mode the LED is red. Only Secure and Master Users can access the premises during the
Secured Mode.
A Secure User must enter their Primary and Secondary Codes to gain entry. After entering their Primary
Code the Door LED will flash green for 10 seconds, during which the Secondary Code must be entered.
A Master User only needs to present their PIN code once to gain entry.

6. Auxiliary Input and Output
The Digy Elite auxiliary input and output can be configured in different combinations, for optimum usability in different applications. (see
par.13).
7. Request to Exit (REX) Button
The REX button must be located inside the premises to be secured and is used to open the door without the use of a proximity card or
PIN code, it is usually located in a convenient location, e.g. Inside the door or at a receptionist's desk. The function of the REX button
depends on whether the Lock Strike Relay is programmed for Fail Safe Operation or Fail Secure Operation.
1. Fail Secure Operation: From the moment the REX button is pressed, the door will be unlocked until the "Lock Strike Release
Time" has passed. After this time, the door will be locked even if the REX button has not been released.
2. Fail Safe Operation: From the moment the REX button is pressed, the door will be unlocked until the REX button is released, plus
the "Lock Strike Release Time". In this case the "Lock Strike Relay" only begins its count down once the REX button has been
released.
3. Programming the Digy Elite
Programming the Digy Elite is done solely via the unit's keypad driven Programming Menu System (see par.7.1).Certain codes and
settings are pre-programmed with Default Factory Settings. The table below shows the names of all the Digy Elite Menus, default
factory codes and settings.

15. Enrolling Primary & Secondary Codes
Primary Codes

Primary Codes can only be enrolled to an empty User Slot, i.e. a slot where there is no existing Primary Code.

Primary Codes must be unique, i.e. one users Primary Code may not be the same as another users Primary Code.

Primary Codes cannot be the same as any system codes, such as the Normal / Secure Code or Open Code.

Users who hold a Primary Code can gain entry only during Normal Mode.
Secondary Codes

Secondary Codes can only be enrolled to User Slot that already has a Primary Code enrolled but no Secondary Code.

Secondary Codes do not have to be unique, i.e. multiple users can all hold the same Secondary Code.

Secondary Codes cannot be the same as any system codes, such as the Normal / Secure Code or Open Code.

Users who hold Secondary Codes can gain entry in any Mode of Operation.
Enrolling codes
There are two methods to enroll Primary and Secondary codes, the Standard Method and the Code Search Method.
A.
The Standard Method is mainly used when the User Slot number for the user you wish to program is known. You can
program both Primary and Secondary Codes using the Standard method.
The Code Search Method is mainly used when enrolling a users Secondary Code and the User Slot Code is unknown. The Code
Search method only works if a user's Primary Code is already enrolled but the Secondary Code is not.
