Otis Compass Destination Dispatch Elevators


Overview

This document outlines how to integrate a Mercury-Security EP-4502 to the OTIS Elevator Destination Dispatch solution. The Otis DDS integration supports up 128 total floors. When using front and rear entry points within the elevator cab, each entry point is considered to be a distinct destinations. A 32 story building using front and rear entry points requires a total of 64 destinations.

A single primary EP-4502 controller communicates to the Otis DDS. In order to support multiple EP-4502’s, a Primary and Secondary needs to be configured. The Primary EP-4502 will manage communications to the Otis DDS. Communications between the Otis DDS and the Secondary EP-4502’s will have to go through the Primary EP-4502. Primary and Secondary EP-4502’s will exchange messages through an Over-Watch Controller Service which must be installed on the Primary EP-4502.

Supported Modes

A reader within Access It! Universal is configured to communicate to a DEC (Destination Entry Computer, E.g touch screen or keypad) by IP address. This reader can be a traditional weigand reader or the serial reader built into the OTIS DEC terminals.

The following reader modes are available when using the Otis DDS integration. These modes can be manually set or controlled through Tasks.

  • Mode 1 Default Floors – User presents cardholder credentials to a reader. The default floor assigned to the cardholder is checked for authorization. This mode will ONLY authorize the cardholder’s default floor. The DEC will inform the user if the cardholder is authorize to access the default floor.
  • Mode 2 Access to Authorized Floors – User presents cardholder credentials to the a reader. If the cardholder contains active access levels, the DEC will allow the user to select a floor. The DEC will inform the user if the selected floor is accessible
  • Mode 3 User Entry of Destination – The user will select a floor on the DEC. Next, the user presents cardholder credentials to a reader. The DEC will inform the user if the selected floor is authorized.
  • Mode 4 Default Floor or Entry of Destination – User presents cardholder credentials to a reader. Within a timeout period set on the DEC, the user may select a floor. If a floor is not selected, the DEC will inform the user if the cardholder is authorize to access the default floor. If a floor is selected, the DEC will inform the user if the cardholder is authorize to access the selected floor.
