Online monitoring in Space

Overview

The online monitoring functionality allows you to view and control in real-time the status of online access points that are managed by control units (CUs). It also allows you to perform actions on doors like setting the Emergency open or Emergency close modes. Online CUs also enable the denylist to be transmitted automatically to doors without the need to visit each door with an updated key.

Note that you need to configure doors and have devices, such as CU, gateways, readers, encoders, etc., added to the SALTO network and set up to be able to use online monitoring.

To access the monitoring functionality, select Monitoring > Online monitoring. The Online monitoring screen is displayed.

Two tabs are displayed on this screen: Access points and Events. While Access points shows the online status of access points and their related devices, Events shows real-time events, like who accessed which door and when, from all the connected doors.

Access points

The Access points tab allows you to control doors, for example, you can open the door remotely for someone who is in another part of the building, or close every door in the building in an emergency situation. Select a device on the Access point tab to enable the buttons underneath.

Events

The Events tab displays a real-time record of every event involving the door, including the specific action (event), the name of the source (generally an access point), the user (cardholder/operator), the user photo and the time and date.

Click Clear events to remove all events from this panel. Note that events removed from this panel are still listed in the audit trail.

The Pause events notification button stops new events from showing momentarily. This is useful in case an important event is shown and you don't want new events to replace it. The photo of the user is also shown at the top of the Events screen if the feature is enabled. To enable this feature, go to System > General options > General tab and select the Show user picture in online monitoring checkbox. See General tab for more information.
