Setting time zones
When you connect your checkpoint to Sigur controller, one of the configurable parameters you will see is its time zone. Time zones are set depending on the controller location relative to the server.
For instance, if the headquarters where the PACS server is deployed is located in Moscow and its time zone is GMT+3, then the turnstile at the checkpoint in Chelyabinsk will be at GMT+5. Thus, the system will take into account the time zone differences between the regions.
Accurate time and attendance tracking
Time zones in Sigur will help you avoid manual calculations, save your workforce’s time and eliminate human errors.
Geographically distributed architecture
Sigur architecture is designed so that all devices and equipment can be connected into a single system regardless of their geographical location. Most of Sigur controllers are network-enabled and are standard IP devices that can communicate with the system server over the Internet.
They also have an integrated memory, which can store information about all events in the system (including all access events). The date and time of the recorded events will be registered using a real-time clock, i.e. local time.
Therefore, even if the server is temporarily not responding, all data are saved. As soon as the connection is restored, all events are automatically transferred to the PACS server.
