Building/Area Access Systems
A Card Access Control System is any mechanism that controls access into or out of an area, i.e. card swipe readers. FSU utilizes a cCure 800/8000 enterprise card access system manufacured by Software House which allows centralized management of access to card access areas. FSU also utilizes stand-alone card readers manufacured by Locknetics which are not centrally-managed and are not addressed here.
On-line integrated security access control
- Eliminates traditional locks and keys
- Restricts access to controlled areas
- Allows reporting of access gained through card swipes to any centrally-managed area.

University Standard for Arming/Disarming Card Access Systems
Pursuant to F&A policies for card access system security, perimeter doors on buildings that are outfitted with card access security will be armed only during the hours of 11:00pm to 5:00am, Monday through Friday, and all day on weekends and holidays. The impact of this limited arming time is that alarms are not generated outside of those hours in the event of breaches of security (doors forced open, doors held open, motion detected, etc.). This does not apply to intrusion (burglar) alarm systems, nor does it apply to card access areas that are set up as "intrusion zones" where arming and disarming are done locally by the department.
University Standard Alarm Shunt Times for Card Access Systems (Door Held Open Alarms)
The current length of time that a door may be held open during a period when the system is armed is ten (10) minutes. The University reserves the right to extend this alarm shunt period on an individual basis based on usage of the area that requires such extension. When an alarm is "shunted", no alarm event is generated to the University monitoring station until the shunt time is exceeded.
