How B.A.S.I.S. Readers Work
B.A.S.I.S. G
B.A.S.I.S. G offline locks are designed primarily for the college/university dormitories . However, they can
be effectively used in any application where a room has continuous occupancy change over a period of
time, or where the lock location is remote or isolated enough that going out to reprogram the lock becomes
undesirable.
Guest functionality is the lock feature that enables you to add and delete users to and from the lock without
having to go out and visit the lock to reprogram it.
Operation
B.A.S.I.S. G allows a range of per-programmed badge numbers access into a locked unit that secures a
dormitory room. These badge numbers are available for issue and reuse as students are assigned to their
dormitory accommodations. The badge number is automatically issued to a student when the lock for
the room is chosen in the cardholder setup screen. The card number from the assigned range can then be
encoded and presented to the student for use in his or her assigned room.
New students may be assigned access to a particular room by using badge IDs from the same range without
ever needing to reprogram the lock. By taking advantage of the issue code look ahead feature, a badge ID
issued with an incrementally higher issue code will deactivate any other like badge ID for the lock.
The following diagram describes the design and process that B.A.S.I.S. G locks use to achieve the guest
functionality.

Task 1: Install B.A.S.I.S. Software
For complete B.A.S.I.S. software installation and configuration, see the B.A.S.I.S. Installation and Setup
User Guide. Contact your Stanley Representative for a copy or visit www.bestaccess.com.
Task 2: Install Encoder
One types of encoder is available for the B.A.S.I.S. Offline system:
• Magnetic Stripe encoder: Unitech Model MSR206
The card encoder or some type of encoding device (that is, an encoder or a printer with a built-in encoder) is
intended for B.A.S.I.S. G locks. So the following instructions are required for B.A.S.I.S. G functionality, but
optional for B.A.S.I.S. V. For a comparison of B.A.S.I.S. G and V, see “Feature Comparisons of B.A.S.I.S. G
and V” on page 10. The following instructions are for a stand-alone encoder.
15
Installation and Configuration
Perform the following steps to set up the encoder:
1 Click Start > Programs > B.A.S.I.S. ET > System Administration.
2 At the login window, type your user name and password and then click OK. If you do not know your
user name or password, see your System Administrator.
3 Click Administration > Workstations.
4 From the Workstation tab, confirm that the name of your computer is in the list. If your computer is not
in the list, add your workstation by using the browse button and select your workstation.
5 Click Add.
6 Type the name of your computer or click the browse button and browse the network for your computer.
7 Click OK.
8 Click the Encoders/Scanners tab.

17
Installation and Configuration
Defining the system
To define a B.A.S.I.S. offline system, you need to configure:
• Card Formats
• Badge Types
• Guest Readers
• Offline Access Panels
• Timezones
• Access Levels
• Adding a cardholder
Although B.A.S.I.S. locks are offline (stand-alone) and are not managed by access control panels, you must
define Access Panel settings for the locks. In effect, you define access control panels for the locks. More
than one lock – called a reader in B.A.S.I.S. — can share the same panel configuration. However, these
locks (readers) must all:
• be managed by the same Server or Workstation
• share the same password
• be located in the same time zone
• use the same daylight savings time setting.
Installation and Configuration
18
Task 3: Define Card Formats
Defining a card format is the starting point to configure guest access control. If guest access control is not
needed, a standard card format can be used or configured for a reader assignment through access levels.
Badges using standard formats on compatible tracks can only be assigned readers through access levels.
Perform the following steps:
1 From System Administration, click Administration > Card Formats.
Figure 6 Card format
2 Click Add.

4 Type the name of the card format. A typical name for the guest format is ‘Guest format.’
5 Complete all appropriate fields including field length and field order for facility code, card number, and issue
code.
21
Installation and Configuration
Task 4: Define Badge Types
To use B.A.S.I.S. G offline lock basic functionality, you must define a guest badge type. This badge type
allows you to define and allocate a range of badge ID numbers that will be programmed into the lock.
Badge type is an ID Credential Center function used in the configuration of Guest products and determines
the block or pool of badge numbers to be allocated to a group of locks.
Also, badge type determines the card format to be encoded on the badge. In this instance, think of the
badge type as a way of allocating a block of badge numbers to a facility, building, or other group of related
guest locks.
Note
A badge type could be used to allocate a pool of badge numbers for a dormitory from which
smaller blocks of numbers could be obtained for the individual dormitory units.
Perform the following steps:
1 From System Administration, click Administration > Badge Types.
2 Click Add.
The modify badge type window displays.
Choosing the Guest
classification enables the
features of the Badge ID
Allocation tab
Installation and Configuration

range of badge IDs for
your application.
Figure 11 Entering the range of Badge IDs
8 Enter the First ID number in the badge range that you want to create
Note Make sure to allocate a range of badge numbers that will facilitate the future growth of a group of
locks. The size of the range will determine the length of the reader list in the ‘Allow Access To’ dropdown selection on the Badge tab under Cardholders.
9 In the ID Count field, enter the number of Badge IDs that you want to create.
10 Click Add.
11 Click OK.
Installation and Configuration
24
Task 5: Define Offline Access Panels
Although B.A.S.I.S. Locks are offline (stand-alone) locks and are not managed by access control panels,
you must define Virtual Access Panel settings for the locks. Using the access panel concept allows the
programming of guest locks to follow the same conventions as B.A.S.I.S. online products. Up to 64 locks
(called readers in B.A.S.I.S.) can share the same panel configuration. However, these readers must all:
• be managed by the same Server or Workstation
• share the same password
• be located in the same time zone
• use the same daylight saving time setting.
Note The default password is ‘BEST.’ Care should be given to faithfully document any changes to
this password since the password cannot be viewed from anywhere in the B.A.S.I.S. application
software.
Perform the following steps:
1 From System Administration, click Access Control > Access Panels.
2 Click the Offline Lock tab.
3 Click Add.
The Offline Lock Access Panel window displays.
25
Installation and Configuration
Name the offline lock
access panel
appropriately for all of
the possible 64 locks
that it controls.
The workstation name
refers to the technical
name of the computer
to which the PDA or
Netbook is attached
Figure 12 Naming the offline lock access panel.
4 In the Name field, type the name of the access control panel.
5 Click OK.
6 Repeat steps 3 and 4 as necessary.
Installation and Configuration
26
Task 6: Define the Guest Locks/Readers
In the B.A.S.I.S. software, locks are referred to as readers to conform and maintain consistency with
B.A.S.I.S. online terminology conventions.
You can define up to 64 readers for each ‘virtual’ offline access control panel. And each reader will accept
up to eight different card formats. It would be highly unusual to use this many formats in one lock. Perform
the following steps:
1 From System Administration, click Access Control > Readers and Doors.
2 Click Add.
The Add Reader window displays.
Selecting the
Guest reader type
enables the
assignment of a
subset of badge
numbers from the
larger range of
numbers
configured for a
Badge Type.
The automatic
setting for ‘online
reader mode’
allows the lock to
use time zone
control and token
control when
programmed for
both.
Figure 13 Defining offline guest readers
3 In the Name field, type the name of the reader.
4 In the Panel field, select the virtual offline access control panel that controls the reader.
5 In the Type field, select Guest.
6 Select the appropriate reader mode.
7 Under the Card Format section, select the Guest Card Format.
27
Installation and Configuration
Note Selecting the ‘Offline Guest’ reader type refers to a B.A.S.I.S. G configuration.
8 Make any other selections as necessary.
9 Click OK.
The Reader is listed in the Reader listing at the top of the window.
10 Repeat steps 3 – 10 for each additional lock/reader.
Now that you have defined the reader operation of the lock/readers, you now need to configure the
software so that the correct chassis type is assigned to the lock/reader and other offline features are
configured appropriately.
Before you can complete this section you must know:
• Chassis type of the lock/reader. The chassis type will only be either mortise or cylindrical.
• The maximum number of cardholders that will need to access the lock/reader. This includes both guest
cardholders and those cardholders that access the reader by access levels.
• The number of guest badges that will be assigned from the pool of badge IDs.
Installation and Configuration
28
Define Other Guest Reader Features
1 From System Administration, click Access Control > Readers and Doors.
2 Select the Reader that you want to define. Make sure that the check mark is next to the reader to be
modified.
3 Click the Offline tab.
4 Click Modify.
The Modify Offline Reader window displays.
Make sure that
the correct reader
is selected when
selecting offline
features.
The common door
feature allows
duplication of a
badge range
between locks.
The number of
events is
automatically
calculated based
on the amount of
lock memory and
the number of
cardholders
allocated.
Figure 14 Defining the offline reader
5 In the Chassis Type field, select the chassis type that the lock/reader has.
Note The custom chassis type enables the modification of the chassis volume. The chassis volume is a
value used by engineers that relates to the number of turns of the motor that is required to unlock
the lock. Only use the custom chassis type at the direction of a technical support engineer or
specific instructions enclosed with the lock.
6 In the Cardholders field, select the total number of cardholders that will need to access the lock/reader.
7 In the Look Ahead section, select the look ahead offset and range. Normally for B.A.S.I.S. G locks, the
offset is set to 1 and the range to 3.
8 The Guest Parameters section, select whether the reader will be a Common door.
29
Installation and Configuration
9 In the Badge Type field, select a guest badge type from the list that was created. See page 21.
10 In the Number of badges field, enter the number of guest badges to be allocated to this reader from the
total pool of badge IDs.
11 For a common door only: In the Badge Start Number field, enter the starting badge number for the
subset of numbers to be used in this reader. The badge end number is automatically calculated from
the numbers entered.
12 Click OK.
13 Repeat steps 3 – 12 for each reader to be defined.
Define Timezones
A timezone is a block of time that a particular activity or function is allowed to occur. These blocks of time
are represented by intervals.
B.A.S.I.S. Access Control system can be configured for up to 255 timezones limited by the feature set of
each product.

format). Indicate by checking the check box on each day that you want the interval to be active.
7 Click OK
The new timezone has been added to the list.
Notice the Timezones tab has additional headings for something other than standard days of the week.
These H1-H8 represent holidays that allow for the exceptions to each interval. These holidays, or exception
days, are configured on the Holiday tab.
B.A.S.I.S. organizes these exception days into one of eight types. Those exception days that are to be
treated the same would be organized into one of eight types. A holiday type can contain more than one
configured exception period.
Access Levels
An Access Level is nothing more than a list of relationships between readers and timezones. These access
levels will become assigned to badges and will determine whether or not a badge will unlock a door during
a specified time.

Initial Configuration of Transport Tray
After the B.A.S.I.S. Transport Tray has successfully installed onto your workstation, you will need to set up the
location of the SQL Server CE B.A.S.I.S. Transport database file that is used to store offline information. This
configuration is required before installing any B.A.S.I.S. Transport software for a PDA or Netbook. Three options
exist for the configuration location of the Transport Database location:
• Mobile Device — PDA
• Removable Media Device — USB Flash Drive
• Known Directory — simple directory
Removable Media Device
The Removable Media Device option can be used to store the database if the user has a USB Flash Drive that
will be used by the client during reader programming. The flash drive can be inserted into the server’s USB
port to store the database file. Once a panel download is complete, the device can be removed and inserted
into the client computer to allow access to all lock set information during programming activities. History
will automatically be uploaded when the device is reconnected to the server and communication server is
running If retrieved from the lock. Perform the following steps:
