DDS team, with the help of UX consultants, has designed Amadeus 8 software with the operator experience in mind. Amadeus 8 approach is based on three task groups corresponding to three types of users: Set-up for the installers, Management for the security and company manager, and Security for the guards. The features available for each type of user are specific to its specific duties.

SET-UP

Configure the system’s parameters in a more simple and powerful way than ever.


Infrastructure: Rely on the setup wizard to build the site in a straightforward process. Create controllers, and all their parameters by default, for access and lift.


Time Zone: Define the time periods in which system functions will be activated.

 

Access: Supervise cardholders’ access points, time authorisations and assigned access groups. 


Video: Construct the logical video tree structure. Amadeus 8 integrates DVR’s and NVR’s from numerous video partners. 


Alarm Zone: Define groups of inputs that will be armed / disarmed together. 


Global Reflexes: Set up complex, flexible cause and effect rules with a deceptively simple user interface. 


Position – Graphic Module: Create a virtual representation of the physical elements (door, inputs…), as well as of the predefined actions, with dynamic icons layered on top of maps. 


Badge Templates: Personalise badges as you please. 


Options: Manage appearance, behaviours, and file location preferences with an easy swipe of YES/NO buttons and drop down list selections.


Diagnostics: Consult sophisticated diagnostic tests and solution tools.
