Software House C•CURE® Driver
These installation instructions cover the installation of
the Software House C•CURE Driver for connection to
the Software House C•CURE 800/8000 system. The
Software House C•CURE Driver is software-based
and is installed and configured on the Insight
workstation.
Product Description
The Software House C•CURE Driver enables
communication between the APOGEE® Automation
System and the Software House C•CURE 800/8000
system. The driver allows C•CURE 800/8000 objects
to be monitored and controlled by the APOGEE
Automation System, and operates as a virtual
field panel on the Insight workstation with many
capabilities normally associated with physical field
panels.
memory stick) suitable for use on the PC(s)
where the driver and DVR Option is to be
installed.

Connecting the Insight Workstation
to the Software House C•CURE
Server
An Ethernet TCP/IP connection must exist between
the Insight workstation (where the driver resides)
and C•CURE 800/8000 server. There are two
configurations supported for connection between the
Insight workstation and C•CURE 800/8000 system:

the APOGEE network and C•CURE 800/8000
network must already exist, or be added at this time.
This configuration is illustrated in Figure 1.

APOGEE and C•CURE 800/8000 System
Connected to Separate Ethernet
Networks
In this configuration, the Insight workstation does not
utilize its APOGEE network connection to provide
communication between the driver and C•CURE
800/8000 system. This configuration is required when
one network is configured to obtain IP addresses
automatically, while the other network utilizes fixed
IP addresses. For this configuration, an additional
Ethernet card must be installed and configured in
the Insight workstation. This additional card allows
the Insight workstation running the driver software to
become part of both the APOGEE network and the
C•CURE 800/8000 network.
Page 4 of 8
When configuring the additional Ethernet card on
the Insight workstation, define the TCP/IP settings
according to the requirements of the C•CURE
network. Contact the C•CURE network administrator
to determine the settings for configuring TCP/IP on
the additional network card. Further, if using a fixed
IP address, ensure that the address chosen is not in
use by any other device on the C•CURE network.
Once installed and configured, an Ethernet cable
must be installed between the additional Ethernet
card and C•CURE 800/8000 network to complete
this connection. This configuration is illustrated in
Figure 2.

Installing Software House C•CURE
800/8000 Client
Installation of the Software House C•CURE
800/8000 Client should be coordinated with
or performed by the security installer.
Using the Software House C•CURE 800/8000 Driver
requires the Software House C•CURE 800/8000
Client software (version 9.0 or 9.1) to be installed on
the Insight workstation. Follow these steps to install
the Software House C•CURE 800/8000 Client on the
Insight workstation:
For details on performing steps 2 and 3 in
this section, see “Installing the C•CURE
800/8000 Software” in the C•CURE
800/8000 Installation Guide
3. Run Setup.exe from Software House C•CURE
800/8000 Driver software that was previously
downloaded from the StdApps drive.
If the installation program determines that a new
version of Microsoft .NET software is required, it
will be installed after you accept the .NET license
agreement. You must click Accept for the driver
installation to continue.
During the installation, you are prompted which
components you wish to install. Select the
Software House Driver option. If this Insight
workstation will be used to view DVR Video, also
select the Intellex DVR Video option.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions, and accept all
default settings.
5. When completed, click Close to exit installation.
1. Verify that no other applications are running on
the Insight workstation.
2. Using the Software House C•CURE 800/8000
installation disk, install the C•CURE client on the
Insight workstation to be used by the driver.
3. If using the DVR Option, install Patch 1 or Patch
3 for version 9.0 OR Patch 4 for version 9.1 of
the Software House C•CURE 800/8000 software.
This patch adds support for Intellex DVMS and
Ultra software version 4.0.
Installing Software House C•CURE
800/8000 Driver Software
Perform the following steps to install the Software
House C•CURE 800/8000 Driver software on the
Insight workstation:
The driver only needs to be installed on one
Insight workstation, but that workstation
must be connected to the Software House
C•CURE network.
1. Log on to Windows using an account with
administrative privileges.
2. Verify the Insight SoftControllerSvc service is
not running (use Services window from Windows
Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services to
stop this service).

Once the Software House C•CURE 800/8000 Driver
software is installed, see Software House C•CURE®
Driver Start-up Procedures for details on adding
the driver to Insight, and configuring the driver for
communication and operation with the Software
House C•CURE system.
Installing DVR Video Option
on Additional Insight Client
Workstations
Perform the following steps to install the Intellex
DVR Video option software on additional Insight
Client workstations that will be used to view video
associated with Software House events:
The Intellex DVR Video option must be
installed on every Insight workstation that
will be used to view video clips associated
with C•CURE events.
DVR video is only available on Insight
workstations connected via Ethernet to the
Insight workstation running the driver.
Insight workstations connected via RS-485
cannot display video from the driver.
