  1. Dual authentication - 2 credentials (any credential\pin) from the same user are required to gain access to a secure door.

To Activated dual authentication mode you need to select the dual authentication mode under reader options:

The Dual authentication ave 3 setting
  1. Time zone - time frame when the dual authentication will be active
  2. Number of sessions - number of users can be authenticated at the same time
  3. Session Timeout - the time the user have to preset the 2 credential, the control panel will wait for this timeout when the first credential is presented, if no credential is presented during this time the session will ends.
Each user can be defined with a Dual authentication override:

  2. Force dual authentiicaiton
Those modes will override the reader set in case that the reader settings are different.
