Create your own dashboard

We have changed the way you work with information on the dashboard. Each administrator can put only the information which they use most on the homepage. This not only just about displaying information, administrators can control the system directly from the dashboard. The dashboard consists of several widgets:

  • The main widget has an overview of the access control system. You will find the number of users, devices, zones, time profiles and 4 more of the most important numbers in a single overview.
  • Control the locks of the most important doors directly in the door widget. The administrator can open a door for a few minutes or on a one-off basis. Streams from the intercom camera and any linked external cameras will let you know who you are letting in.
  • The lockdown widget lets the administrator lock one or more selected doors with a single click.
  • The access logs widget gives you information about who entered the building, and when and which door they used. You can set a filter to show only important doors or key access events.
  • The system logs widget is used by the highest level of administrators. For example, they can display only warning and system error logs.
  • Device status can be ascertained from the widget of the same name. You can see all the devices or select only a few. For example, you can display only those devices which are offline.
  • The system load widget lets the administrator know how full the disk, RAM and CPU memory are.
  • Licence status tells you how many devices and users you can still add to the software.


Administrators can put the lockdown widget on their dashboards, but this isn’t the only place, where you can find it. We have also added it to details of individual devices, zones and companies. This means you can lock the doors at each of these levels. We have even added a lockdown icon to the main menu at the top. With this, you can lock all the doors you administer by pressing a single button.

Licence Plate Recognition

We are adding another access credential to the 2N® Access Commander software – car licence plates. With this, you can restrict car access to a garage. Simply install a suitable camera so that it can read the licence plates of incoming cars. Connect the camera to the intercom (or even an access reader) and the barrier will only automatically open for cars with authorised licence plates.

Which camera is suitable? The function is compatible with Axis cameras fitted with an Artpec 6 processor or higher. The camera must also have software (ACAP) by Vaxtor installed – VaxALPR on Camera v.2.2.15.
