· Switch. A device with one input point and 0 to N output points that has state (On or Off). The device can have these behaviors: Latch, Unlatch, Pulse, or Follow. A schedule associated with the device causes it to be available for activation via its input point during the selected times for the schedule.
· Timer. A device whose input is a schedule and that has 0 to N output points associated with it. The timer's state is On during the times selected in its schedule; otherwise it is Off. The device can have these behaviors: Latch, Unlatch, Pulse, or Follow.
· Valid Credential. A device whose input is a card reader and that has 0 to N output points associated with it. A valid credential device has no state, so its behaviors are limited to: Latch, Unlatch, and Pulse. Valid credential devices have permissions associated with them and appear in the group permissions area. Valid credential devices do not have Disengage messages because they do not have state, nor do they have schedules.
· Event Track. A device whose input is the specific event associated with it from the door that the event track device is created to watch. An event track device can have 0 to N outputs associated with it. The device can always have these behaviors: Latch, Unlatch, or Pulse. If an event track device is watching for Door Ajar events, then it has state and can have a Follow behavior. If the Follow behavior is selected, then the device can have a Disengage message. The schedule associated with an event track device defines when it is active because a client might want to respond to the event differently during business hours than during non-business hours.
