  • Please be advised that we recommend 2N® Access Commander being connected to the devices 24/7. If 2N® Access Commander becomes disconnected from your devices, a feature of our products are that the devices will store an event log autonomously and, upon reconnection, will synchronise the offline log data back to 2N® Access Commander. Whilst it this happens, the application will continue to run but the event and access logs will be updated in the background whilst the data is being processed. If there are many devices, this can take a long time.
