Code Tamper is the ability of Velocity to deny access for a set amount of time after a set number of invalid access attempts has been made. Generally three consecutive incorrect attempts will lock the keypad/reader for one minute.
To change these settings, or disable them, follow the steps below:
Open Controller Properties, select Setup
Under Code Tamper Alarm, edit the Invalid penalty timer, Threshold timer, and Lockout time
When the first invalid code/pin is entered, this will trigger the beginning of the invalid penalty timer.
Counting down from 20, the timer has an additional penalty added after each invalid access.
If the timer exceeds the threshold timer, it will lock the reader for the lockout time.
EX: Invalid Access 1: 20 seconds
Wait 5 seconds
Invalid Access 2: 35 seconds
Invalid Access 3: 55 seconds
Locked out one minute
To disable this, the user could set the timers to values that could almost be impossible to reach
