How To Configure Ingressus To Trigger Alarm For Doors That Remained Ajar in Ingress
To increase your security while using Ingressus controller in controlling the doors, you can configure it via Ingress Software to trigger an alarm if the door stays ajar for a specific time, say for example 10 second. Therefore, if the door is left open for 10 second without closing, the system will trigger an alarm to alert people. To setup this feature, please follow the simple steps below:
Go to the Devices tab > select Zones > select Fire Alarm > add new Zone > add setting to device > select device > select the Trigger Condition to “Opening Timeout”. Refer to the screenshots below for more information.
For the last option, which is “Stop alarm once door is closed”, please tick it so that if the door is closed, Ingressus will deactivate the alarm automatically. However, this option will only take effect if Ingressus is connected to the Ingress server.
If the controller is not connected to the Ingress server, you have 2 options to deactivate the alarm:
1) Restart the controller.
2) Configure the settings from Ingress and upload it to the controller.
For the second option, please follow the steps below:
Go to the Devices tab > select Zone > select Fire alarm > add new Zone > add setting to device > select device > select the Trigger Condition to “Door Closed Correctly”. Refer to the screenshots below for more information.
For the best configuration, please upload both settings discussed above in order for your controller to work perfectly regardless whether the Ingressus controller is connected or not connected to the Ingress server.
Once completed, the display should have 2 options under the fire alarm zone as shown in the image below.
That’s it, you’re all set and you can now utilize this alarm feature to increase your office security.
