System Overview
aPod System Alarm Panel Interface
The aPod Alarm Panel Interface will simplify the arming and disarming operations and eliminate false alarms.

You need an alarm system. You don't need the hassle.
Improve your building security

Integrating intrusion detection with access control will improve the security of your facility. When several users need access at different times, ensuring proper use of the alarm system while avoiding false alarms becomes a challenge. The aPod System solves this problem by simplifying the arming and disarming operations and enforcing configured permissions.

Eliminate false alarms

Arm and disarm the alarm panel from outside the armed area using an access token. There are no false alarms caused by PIN entry errors, expired entry/exit delays, wrong enty/exit routes or unauthorized access to an armed area.

Track all arming and disarming events

The aPod System maintains a detailed record of all arming and disarming events. The user's name, date and time, area armed or disarmed, arming/disarming location and whether or not the request was successful are all recorded in the event log.

Features of the aPod Alarm Panel Interface
  • Arming and disarming permissions. Designate which users may arm or disarm the alarm panel. Arming and disarming permissions are configured independently. If a user does not have permission to disarm the alarm panel, their token will not unlock the door into the armed area regardless of their normal access permission.
  • Simple, safe arming. Approved users can arm the Alarm Panel from outside the armed area using their access token. There is no way to trip a false alarm.
  • Auto-disarming on entry. Approved users will disarm the alarm panel automatically when they unlock the door with their access token. There are no false alarms caused by PIN entry errors or delays in disarming.
  • Visual and audio feedback. The access reader provides both visual and audio feedback to indicate if the arming or disarming action was successful or not.
  • There is no need to designate an entry/exit route. An area can be armed or disarmed at any access point.
  • Remote arming and disarming. Administrators with remote connection authority can arm or disarm the Alarm Panel from anywhere there is Internet access using any device with a Browser.
  • Multiple partitions. The aPod System can independently arm and disarm different areas within your facility if your Alarm Panel supports multiple partitions.
  • Security alerts. A security alert is transmitted by email, text message or Twitter to designated administrators whenever the alarm panel is armed or disarmed.
  • Audit log. All arming and disarming events are recorded in the event log indicating who, when, where and success or failure.
  • Delayed unlocking. When accessing an armed area, the unlock action is delayed until the disarming status has been verified and indicated to the user.
  • Configurable arming delay. An arming delay of 0 to 60 seconds can be configured.
  • Automatic locking of doors. Arming an area automatically locks all doors into that area and overrides any scheduled unlock periods.
  • Check for open doors. Arming is prevented if a door into the area is open. The open door is indicated in the event log.
  • Card+PIN access mode. Disarm the Alarm Panel using Card+PIN access mode for higher security.
