Controls individual users access level and resource availability. Please note that the iMCA System considers "USER" to be not only a person who can physically login into the system from a variety of access devices but also a single access device (a permanently connected touch screen terminal system for example). Combine "Access Level", "Allowed Interface", "Forced Interface", "Trusted Host Name", "Trusted IP Address" options to create role based scenarios for connecting and communicating with iMCA system for individuals and access devices or units.
Enable / Disable login ability for any user.
Ability to enforce user/terminal to login to PC, Mobile or Touch screen mode irrespective of access device.
Ability to grant user/access terminal "trusted" access level for skipping explicit authentication process.
Ability to set expiration date for login (from this date, login will be automatically blocked).
Password generator and messenger for sending the access details to the system, via email or SMS.
PROVIDER: this user can create additional iMCA Sites, monitor, control and automate them all. "PROVIDER" is an "ADMINISTRATOR" for all iMCA sites also. This option is available only for iMCA Provider version license holders.
ADMINISTRATOR: users granted this access level will be able to monitor, control and automate one single site (default) and will be able to access all resources within the iMCA Server. Only trusted users should be granted administration rights.
USER: users granted simple "user" access will be able to use monitor and control functionality of the iMCA System however they will not be able to use any site's management options including any automation triggers options.
GUEST: will only be able to use monitoring functionality but any access for controlling (switch ON/OFF anything via the iMCA System) or site administration will be disabled for them.
In conjunction with the user "ACCESS LEVEL" there is also "ALLOWED INTERFACE" option. It provides greater flexibility for controlling what interface is allowed to be viewed or accessed on particular user or device terminals. There are four different options:
PC: access and ability to login into the system from any PC based devices.
MOBILE: access and ability to login into the system from any mobile/hand held devices supporting web browsing and HTML standards.
TOUCHSCREEN: combination of PC and MOBILE access devices containing touch screen capabilities.
iMCA: access to all management, monitor, control and automation functions of the iMCA system (excluding VIDEO monitoring and stipulated by the ACCESS LEVEL)
VIDEO: access to the iMCA system user interface for video monitoring
By using "Forced Interface" option you can always reinforce and overwrite default (also customisable) access interface.
