High Security Disarming Options
Description and Purpose
Figure 1: User Attributes for Disarming Partitions
Facilities often have different
departments that are open during different working hours. Personnel
typically only work in one department, and do not need entry into other
departments. This document discusses system
capabilities for High-Security Partition Disarming.
intrusion detection system that offers the ability to control separate
partitions is like having complete multiple systems in a single control
panel. The system can control when each user can disarm selected
partitions from system
keypads. This dramatically reduces the installation costs related to
securing each of the departments or separate offices.
The maximum number of
partitions on the system depends on the
control panel you choose.

Solving Security Issues for
Facilities with Varying Security Requirements
Locations with multiple
departments that have various authority requirements can be a challenge.
The Honeywell system allows for many arming options.
Honeywell’s solution allows you to arm the system in many ways. You can
arm and disarm each department separately, depending on your authority
within the department. You can leave unattended departments armed while only
disarming areas where persons should be. The system can handle the
separate needs of the vault, the teller line, the loan office, and the ATM
The system also features “Two-person Disarming,” a method of disarming
that requires two separate persons to disarm the system. After the first
person enters a pass code to disarm the system, a second person enters a
pass code to suppress a pending ambush message.
The system also features the best anti-ambush disarming capability in the
industry. It uses a method of disarming that requires a person to enter a
pass code to disarm the system. After entering and checking the department
for security issues, the person enters a second pass code within a
specified time period to suppress a pending ambush message.
Timed Vault Disarming:
The system can disallow disarming of vaults or high-security departments
outside of programmed time schedules. This allows janitorial and clerical
staff to work in low-security departments with broader work schedule
Some facilities house items or
information with varying classifications of secrecy. They may have
high-security conference rooms or test laboratories. For facilities like
these, Partition arming fits right in. Limiting traffic in controlled
departments after hours is essential to the reliability of privacy, or long-term tests in the laboratory.
In a facility, a single
individual may have different privileges or authority from one department
to the next. For example, Bob Smith may be the manager of the Quality
Assurance department, but only a customer of the Human Resource
Department. The system’s powerful capabilities allow a single individual
to have different authority in different departments.
A facilities staff changes
frequently. Lost keys and keys of employees who fail to return them at
termination, dramatically reduce the effective
security of door locks. By assigning each person a pass code, the pass
code can be individually removed from the system. In this case, human resources would simply delete the pass code for
the departing person.
Different departments operate
according to various schedules. The system allows you to individually
schedule Partitions to allow disarming by personnel based on the user’s
authority in the department.
