Space-OnGuard mapping


This section relates to mapping elements of the OnGuard software to those in Space.


Credentials (the term used in OnGuard), like the user's name or their Badge ID (Ext ID in Space) are created in OnGuard and transferred to Space.

Credential mappingFirst, create the user in OnGuard

Credential mapping in SpaceThe user is then automatically transferred to Space

Access levels

In the below example, you can see three user access levels created in OnGuard:

  • "Access Level Staff"
  • "access level test"
  • "new access level test 2"

OnGuard access levelCreating access levels in OnGuard

These user access levels are then transferred to Space into zones. These are defined in the description as OnGuard access levels:

Space access levelThe OnGuard access levels are defined in the description field in Space

Inside each zone, you can find the specified doors (access points) for the OnGuard access level.

Space access points inside each zoneYou can see the associated access points inside each zone

The zones are only synchronized when the timezones of the readers inside them are all the same. If one reader's timezone is not aligned with the others, the zone will not be synchronized.

Align timezones of the readersMake sure you align the timezones of the readers inside the zones

Mapping users and access levels

In the OnGuard Credentials section, you assign an access level to users:

OnGuard access levelsOnGuard access levels

Then the user is then mapped to that access level in Space.

Creating doors

First you have to create an Access Panel in OnGuard:

Access Panel in OnGuardCreating an 'Access Panel' in OnGuard

The equivalent of an Access Panel in Space is a group of doors (not a zone). Here you can also define if the door is to be online or offline.

See the below SALTO IN example. Once created, in the Reader and Doors menu of OnGuard, all the online doors and related information have to be added to the different panels.

Readers and Doors option in OnGuard'Readers and Doors' option in OnGuard

Note: Card format can be any of the options, as can ports and addresses.

Once you save this, the doors are then synchronized to the Space Doors section.

Doors in SpaceDoors are synchronized to the Space 'Doors' section

Initially, all doors are synchronized as offline.

Offline doors in SpaceDoors are synchronized as offline to start with

You have to then manually define them as either online or offline in the drop-down Connection type option of Space, as indicated below.

Defining online doors in SpaceDoors have to be manually defined as online

Mapping doors and access levels

In OnGuard, in "Access Level Staff" you can see the doors created (For example, Lenel S2 Reader, TEST YSA, XS4 Mini - Meeting Room, XS4 Original+). (Note that in OnGuard a "reader" is the equivalent to a "door" in Space.)

This is then transferred to the Space Zones > Access points section:

You can create custom access timezones in OnGuard that are then transferred to Space as cardholder timetables.

Space cardholder timetablesSpace cardholder timetables

Door timezones can then be moved from Always to a custom timezone.

OnGuard timezone AlwaysOnGuard timezones set as 'Always'

OnGuard timezone customCustom OnGuard timezones

These custom OnGuard timezones are then transferred to the Space cardholder timetables section.

Space custom timetablesCustom OnGuard timezones transferred to the Space cardholder timetables section

Only the OnGuard access levels (zones in Space) are synchronized with doors that have the same timetable. If one of the individual doors has a different timetable from the others, the zone will not be transferred to space.

Events, status and monitoring

In the OnGuard Alarm monitoring section, you can see the systems status for door monitoring and the main alarm monitor which displays events that have been collected in Space.

Alarm monitoring in OnGuardAlarm monitoring in OnGuard

From BlueConn version 2.5.2 onwards, new events are also added to the connector such as "Door left open" and "Intrusion alarm". This means these alarms will be mapped from Space to OnGuard. In the below example, "Door Forced Open" is the equivalent to "Intrusion alarm" in Space.

Door Forced Open event in OnGuard'Door Forced Open' in OnGuard is the equivalent to 'Intrusion alarm' in Space

And "Door Held Open Restored" is the equivalent to "DLO (Door Left Open)" in Space.

These following events are also transferred to the door status in OnGuard alarm monitoring.


This intrusion of an online door in Space is displayed in OnGuard as "forced" in alarm monitoring in real time.

Intrusion in alarm monitoring

Door left open

The "Door left open" event of an online door in Space is displayed in OnGuard as "held" in alarm monitoring in real time.

Door Left Open - held in alarm monitoring


In standard mode, if the lock is online (communicating) and locked, the status "locked" is displayed in OnGuard.

Access mode locked

Only events from doors synchronized between OnGuard and Space are synchronized. If the event related to the door is not linked with a user synchronized between OnGuard and Space, the event is sent without a cardholder (empty).

Doors marked as yellow are online doors which are not communicating temporarily.

Remote opening

You can carry out remote openings in OnGuard for the corresponding doors in Space. See the below example for where to find this option in the OnGuard interface.
