Is it possible in Cpam to assign multiple doors to one reader/gateway.
Here is the situation. The customer would like to set up one reader to activate outputs depending on which card is swiped, for instance if the swipe card 1 then output 1 will activate. Card 2 then output 2 would activate.
I have thought about creating a custom gateway template and assigning the outputs from an output module to that gateway. Then creating multiple doors on that gateway and setting access policies for each output. The problem comes in though that I can only assign 1 reader per door. Does Cpam have the ability to be able to assign 1 reader to multiple doors? Or is there a way to use the global IO's to accomplish this task?
The only way I could think of is to:
1. Setup a single door, lets call this door "Lockers." Setup an access policy for all people with access to a locker, to grant them access to the door. However, the template for this door will only have a reader on it.
2. Next setup outputs under the "Hardware" page, for each of the lockers that you woud like to use. Each locker needs their own output.
3. Global I/O you can set up a rule, like this; If Grant Access to door "Lockers" AND Badge# "X", timed unlock or toggle "X" locker output.
Does this make any sense? Global I/O rules take about 3-5 seconds, and the gateway requires a connection to the server to complete its task.
