Advanced Configuration Options

  • Database - Click in the field to the right of the Database field to select the correct database type.  The default database installed with the application is Microsoft Access; however, if a conversion is performed this field will need to be changed to a value of 1- SQL Server.
  • Hide SQL Logon - If this option is set to a value of True, the SQL login will not display when starting the Access Control Software Application.  This option should be set to a value of True after the initial setup of the software has been performed.  The SQL username and password values will need to be set properly on initial startup of the application.
  • Precision Access - This value must be the same for all PCs running the Access Control Security Application on the network.  If this value is changed, then a reset to all controllers must be performed to allocate memory accordingly.  This option allows Access Control Reader groups to be assigned to Personnel records.  NOTE:  The Precision Access Flag if set to true will consume more memory at the controller; due to this the full amount of cards will not be downloaded to the controller. 
  • Run As a Service - This option toggles whether the software will run as a Windows service.  With this option no GUI (Graphical User Interface) will be displayed.  Any changes made to the software will need to be completed via the thick client or the thin client.    If the operating system should crash or be rebooted for some reason, with the Run as a Service option set the application will automatically restart.  Most IT departments set this option for servers running in a virtual environment or for servers that are not easily accessible by the Security Administrator.  If running the application as a server both the AutoLogon Operator and AutoLogon Password options are required to be set.
  • AutoLogon - If the AutoLogon option is set to a value of True, the software will not prompt for a user name and password when logging into the software.  The AutoLogon Operator and AutoLogon Password set in the configuration options page will be utilized.
  • AutoLogon Operator - Enter the username to be used when automatically logging into the Access Control application.  To enter the username, click to the right of AutoLogon Operator in the box provided and type in the username.  Note the username values are not case sensitive.
  • AutoLogon Password - Enter the password to be used when automatically logging into the Access Control application.  To enter the password, click to the right of AutoLogon Password in the box provided and type in the password.  Note the password values are not case sensitive.
  • Deadman Alarm Timeout - Select the time in minutes by clicking in the text box to the right of the “Deadman Alarm Timeout” box, a drop down arrow will appear allowing the operator to select the desired timeout time.
