Verification Fail Alarm in FingerTec Access Control DevicesFingerTec’s access control devices are equipped with a Verification Fail alarm feature. The Verification Fail alarm will trigger the device’s alarm (internal or external alarm) if a user failed to verify for a pre-determined number of times. This feature is made to warn the administrator that the device is being vandalized or if someone is trying to break in into a building. Assuming that you had set the Alarm threshold to allow a maximum of 3 tries, if a user fails to verify after 3 times, the alarm will be triggered.
To set up this feature, you can refer to the following steps. This may vary depending on the model of the device you are using.
Monochrome Terminals (Kadex, R2, AC900)
You can select the Alarm Count Option following the steps below.
Menu> Options> Access Options > Alarm CNT > Define the value
*To disable this feature, you can set the value to 0.
Color Screen Terminals (Q2i, Ikiosk 100+)
You can set this feature in 1:1 Match Retry Times, and Password Retry Times in Display option:
Menu> System> Display > 1:1 Match RetryTimes > Define the value (1-9)
Menu> System> Display > Password RetryTimes > Define the value (1-9)
*Please note that for colored screen devices, the Retry Times cannot be disabled. You can only set it to the maximum value, which is 9. This will give the users enough time to verify.
FaceID (FaceID 2, FaceID 3, FaceID 4d)
You can configure this feature in Access Parameter Settings:
Menu> System> Access Control Settings > Access Control Parameters > Failure Alarm Thr > Define the value (1-9)
* Please note that for FaceID series, the alarm threshold cannot be disabled. You can only set it to the maximum value, which is 9. This will give the users enough time to verify.
