OSDP configuration


Hardware support:

HID Aero - max 2 readers per 1 reader port configured for OSDP.

Mercury - max 1 reader per 1 reader port configured for OSDP.

For each reader, you can assign internal address (0 - 3). Don't use same reader address on the same port and only single reader is used per port, configure those readers for OSDP Reader 1 and OSDP Reader 2

On reader port 1, "OSDP Reader 1" and "OSDP Reader 3" can be assigned with internal address.

On reader port 2, "OSDP Reader 2" and "OSDP Reader 4" can be assigned with internal address. 


Keep in mind, that later at door configuration, "OSDP Reader 1", "OSDP Reader 2".. etc. will be used as reference and not the reader address.

Anti - Passback

Anti Pass-back (APB) feature prevents an access card or PIN from being used to enter an area a second time without first leaving it (so that the card cannot be passed back to a second person who wants to enter). APB only applies within single controller scope (controller + modules).

It is recommended to create areas before selecting readers.

Name - name of determined APB area.

Timeout - timed value in seconds, after which APB status is reset for the user.

Add APB door - select available door from the list and assign to APB Area. Door must have Entry/Exit readers in order to selected for APB.

APB reset can be executed at "Users" tab.


Door monitor must be used for Anti-Passback to work. Door monitor input must be activated, otherwise APB will not be applied to the user.


Creating, updating, deleting access level will reset HID APB status for all users!

How to create APB Area

  1. Click "Add" button.
  2. Enter APB Area name.
  3. Click "Add APB door" and select reader.
  4. Select "APB mode".
    Hard - access is denied and "Access denied" event with "Anti-passback violation" reason is generated.
    Soft - access is granted and "Access granted" event with "Anti-passback violation" reason is generated.
  5. Select "Leads from" and "Leads to" areas.
  6. Depending on configuration, these doors can be used for area entry or exit. If the first door is configured to enter APB area, configure door to exit APB area by adding additional reader to area using 3-5 steps.
titleSupported devices and configurations

Anti-Passback feature is supported on HID Aero and Mercury Security devices only.

The feature is implemented in hardware mode to ensure standalone operation in case of connection loss to the server. Therefore, APB zone(s) should be designed within the scope and capacity of a single master controller, and will be limited to the maximum supported door module count on the said device(s).
