Alarm Code Access

In addition to card access, the One Card Office also administers alarm codes. Current USF faculty and staff members may use their alarm code to arm/disarm alarmed areas.

  • Below are terms to know when requesting an alarm code

    Alarm Code:

    Authorized USF employees have permission to arm/disarm a specific alarmed area with an alarm code that is administered to them by One Card personnel.

    Keypad Access:

    USF maintains two types of keypads, both of which are armed/disarmed when an authorized employee enters a numeric code.

    Manager Approval:

    To obtain an alarm code, manager (or supervisor) approval is required. A manager, in this case, is the "person responsible for the area/group" to which the cardholder needs an alarm code. The approval process entails that a manager submits a request via the Alarm Code Request Form. The use of the Alarm Code Request Form allows One Card and Campus Security Systems personnel to grant access in a timely and accurate manner, and maintain accountability while doing so.

    Access Modification:

    In addition to requesting an alarm code for keypad access, managers also may need to modify that access. Modifications include adding/removing alarm codes. The modification process requires that a manager submits a request via the Alarm Code Request Form.
