What is Security Lockdown?

Lockdown is the facility to secure the site through a single action by disabling access through selected doors. This includes disabling exit buttons and relocking doors held open by time zones. Specific users can be permitted to pass through these doors during the Lockdown condition.

During a security Lockdown, it may be necessary for certain staff to move around the site to investigate and attend to the incident.

There is a check box in each user record that may be selected to allow the user to operate doors that are in a Lockdown state. Their normal permissions will still apply and so doors normally barred to them will remain so. This is called a user lockdown exemption
