IEC 60839-11-33:2021 defines the Web services interface for electronic access control systems. This includes listing electronic access control system components, their logical composition, monitoring their states and controlling them. It also includes a mapping of mandatory and optional requirements in accordance with IEC 60839-11-1:2013, as covered by Annex.
This document applies to physical security only. Physical security prevents unauthorized personnel, attackers or accidental intruders from physically accessing a building, room, etc. Web services usage and device management functionality are outside the scope of this document.
The document specifies only the data and control flow between a client and the services without reference to any physical device as the services required to implement a compliant electronic access control system (EACS) are not necessarily implemented on a single device, i.e. all services can be run on a control panel, event aggregator software on PC, etc.
