template distribution from enrollment HandKey II to other
selected HandReaders thus eliminating the need for a user
to be enrolled at every HandKey II
ƒƒ Independent door control capability without the need for
an access control panel
ƒƒ Assign temporary access to selected users by specifying a
user’s access start and stop days and times
ƒƒ Manage archive activity to keep old information available
for reports
ƒƒ Manage alarms for additional security
ƒƒ Monitor multiple remote sites from the convenience of
your PC
ƒƒ Remote enrollment feature enables a HandKey II to be
controlled from the software. For example a guard behind
a glass partition or a supervisor in a distant office can enroll
new users without physically going to the HandKey II
