Important: Placing the third finger enrolled onto the sensor silently notifies the alarm monitor or security personnel. The safe will also unlock when the duress finger is read.
For normal operation, the proper person’s finger is placed on the opaque Light Emitting Sensor reader. The LES transmits the fingerprint image data. Proprietary algorithm interprets the image looking for the finger points; comparing the ridges, valleys, whorls, and the distance between them to those images stored in the database. Once a proper match is found, the User is identified and access can be granted if the time, authorization number, etc. are correct.
Security settings for the fingerprint image on the SMARTPOINT can be changed for specific individuals to accommodate individual situations. There are seven levels of security. The number four level is the standard. If set at seven, the fingerprint data must match exactly. For a person having prints that are more difficult to read, the security setting for that individual can be set lower.
Note: The factory recommends discussing potential changes with a LA GARD representative prior to making changes.
The LA GARD SMARTPOINT system is designed for three levels of keypad codes. The Master Code can program all functions of the SMARTPOINT including gain access to the Master Menu and set system operation mode. However, the Master Code cannot unlock any of the locks. There is only one Master Code and it is eight digits.
The Manager Code cannot install locks; however it can gain access to the Manager Menu, program User Codes/Fingerprint Users and can unlock the locks. There is only one Manager Code and it is six digits.
The Users Codes can only unlock locks that they are programmed to operate. There are eight Users Codes, each of which is six digits.
The SMARTPOINT system can be programmed by the Master Code to operate using:
- Code or Fingerprint only
- Dual Code
- Fingerprint and Code
- Fingerprint and Dual Code
- Dual Fingerprint and Dual Code
To prevent manipulation, the wrong try penalty is a five minute delay period after four (4) consecutive invalid codes.
The LA GARD SMARTPOINT is sold as individual components, enabling each installation requiring only the necessary parts.
The software driven program for the SMARTPOINT is designed for operation on a PC or laptop running Windows® 2000 or higher.
The SMARTPOINT can be battery powered or AC powered, with DC backup. There is one nine volt battery contained within the logic module. Small or large battery boxes are available if using time delay/time lock functions.
When battery powered, the factory recommends that the battery be change yearly. The nine volt alkaline battery is located in the logic module beneath the keypad. To change the battery, remove the black plastic battery compartment cover by pulling down on the handle.
