The behavior of the rock in fail-safe mode will depend on the event.
1. Access Control System (ACS) Power Loss: variations exist as follows:
- Complete connection to the ACS is lost (i.e ACS power, data wires and LED wires are disconnected). The Rock will authenticate but the ACS will not allow access.
- Only power wire is disconnected (i.e data and LED wires remain connected), the Rock will authenticate the face. The ACS will validate the badge number.
2. PoE+ Power Fail: The Rock will not authenticate and will only pass badge information to the ACS if badge operation is enabled in 1FA mode. PoE+ Power status will be displayed and LEDs will be off.
Note that in Single Factor Authentication (1FA), Active Panel HOLD will disable badge only access in fail-safe mode.
