The Fire In / Out status can be set to simply follow the employee’s T&A status. Alternatively it can be also updated from their use of Access Controlled doors/turnstiles. So an employee could have a fire status as IN when they arrive on site through a turnstile – even before they have clocked in for T&A.
Visitor system integration
Focus has a number integrations with other third-party applications. In particular, interfacing with EntrySign Visitor Management system, allows Focus to include a separate Visitors Fire Roll Call report, that can be automatically generated at the same time as the Employee report.
If required, an automated fire report can be produced that is not reliant upon software or network infrastructure. Using an HRX clocking terminal, a serial printer can be wired directly into the HRX RS232 port. The HRX terminal itself will then generate the Fire Roll Call report directly to the serial printer. Both the HRX and the printer can be powered via a UPS to ensure a report is produced even during a power outage. This direct from terminal report can be produced at the same time as one generated through the Focus software. This is sometimes done as a precaution or back-up in case any infrastructure fails during the emergency.
Manual Fire Report Generation
Quickly produce a Fire Report by pressing the Fire Report button on the Focus toolbar or via the fire icon on the desktop. A report will then be sent to the designated printer/s. This does not require the purchase of an HRX terminal.
