HOLIDAY HOURS


Most access-control and intrusion solutions need to be aware of holidays. An intrusion system may be programmed to have different permissions on holidays and weekends than they have on regular weekdays. Similarly access control systems may permit access on a weekday that they may otherwise deny on a weekend or a holiday.

 
The Ontario Government introduced Family Day as a new statutory holiday to begin in 2008. This new holiday is the third monday of February, and in 2008 it falls on February 18.
 
If your business is closed on this new holiday, you may want to program your access/intrusion system to recognize the holiday. If you do not do this your system will consider the day to be a regular workday, granting access when it should not.
 
Many businesses will observe holidays differently depending on religion and personal choice. A company which observes Hanukkah, the Chinese New Year or any other non-statutory holiday should be aware of how these holidays may impact their access control and intrusion systems. Particular attention needs to be paid with the holidays that do not fall upon the same date every year, as these may require manual entry of holiday dates into the system.
