Installation Overview
This chapter introduces the basic concept on how to install an access control system. The
experienced installer can jump to section “Determine Fingerprint Request” to get the
installation overview related to Flex fingerprint controller and other flex controllers.
The overall installation steps are shown in the following block diagram Fig. 1. The detailed
descriptions are given in the subsection below.
Preparing for the Installation
Before beginning the installation, it is recommended that the user gather certain
information to better prepare. Proper preparation will help ensure a smooth installation,
and will save the installer time and reduce unnecessary efforts. The following information
is essential for a professional installation:
Obtain a Floor Plan
Obtain a floor plan of the building in which the access control system is to be installed.
Obtaining a floor plan helps the installer determine what components need to be installed,
and where. It also is essential in determining the length of cable needed to connect
readers to the controller. A floor plan can be a blue print of the building, a design, or
simply a drawing of the facility. Any document showing the footprint of the building can
be used. The dimensions are important to note, especially when determining cable lengths.
A floor plan may be obtained from your local city hall.
Determining Hardware and Location
Determining which hardware to use and where it will be installed. This is the most crucial step
in the preparation stage. First, determine how many access points, or doors, need to be
managed by the access control system. These access points will control the security of the
facility, and can limit the entry and exit to and from any given area of the building. After
deciding which doors need to be controlled, the user must also determine the level of security
needed at each door. There are many ways to manage each door, using different resources.
These resources include, but are not limited to: proximity readers, mag stripe readers, relays,
and request to exits. A few common door configurations are described below:
6
Step 1: Preparing for the Installation
•
Obtain a floor plan
•
Determine the hardware and location
•
Determine the number of controller and
modules and system architecture
Step 2: Hardware Installation
•
Mount the controller and enclosure
•
Install and connect the card readers
•
Connect the electric strikes or mag locks
•
Connect the controller to the system
computer and desktop reader
•
Mount a backup battery in the enclosure
Step 3: Software Setup/Configuration
•
Install the software in the control computer
•
Setup the user accounts who will use the software
•
Configure the controller and all other hardware settings
•
Configure the holidays, access group and the door control
schedule
•
Enroll the cards and set the cardholders’ properties
Fig. 3. Installation Overall Steps
1. One reader, basic access control
The most basic configuration involves one card reader and an electric strike. In
this configuration, a person presents a card to the reader, and is either granted or
denied access. The electric strike unlocks if the system grants access. Another
variation of this scenario involves setting the system up to monitor whether the
door is open, which allows the system to protect against propped open doors, or
doors being held open for too long.
2. One reader, with request to exit device
7
Adding a request to exit device to scenario 1 allows the system to control when to
allow people to exit through a door. Request to exit devices include buttons that a
person must press in order to exit, or a motion detector that automatically unlocks
the door when a person approaches. These devices are always installed on the
secure side of the door.

Fig. 4. Common Door Configuration with Entry Reader
3. Two readers, entry and exit access control
If additional security is needed at a particular door, or if the administrator needs a
record of the time and date that people enter AND exit a door. Adding a second
reader on the secure side of the door will require people to present a card to exit as
well as enter. This scenario provides the added security benefit of allowing the
system to control who can enter, and who can exit. It also allows the
administrator to control when people can enter and exit.
Scenario 1 and 2 require one reader. Scenario 3 requires two. Each door module on the
EverAccess controller can control two readers. Therefore, scenarios 1 and 2 allow one
door module to control two doors. Scenario 3 requires one door module for each door.
This is important to consider when choosing the appropriate number of modules and
readers.
Determine Fingerprint Access Requests
The biometric recognition technology used in the fingerprint controller provides a higher
security level than regular card access system. Determine the number of the access points where
the fingerprint access is required. The fingerprint controller has a built-in reader, so it can be
used as an entry reader. A common door configuration with the fingerprint controller is shown
in the below figure:

Fig. 5. Common Door Configuration for Fingerprint Controller
As the Fig. 5 shows, the fingerprint controller will first work as a controller that receives inputs
of door lock, door sensor, request-to-exit. Also the built-in reader in the fingerprint controller
will sense the presented cards. No additional entry reader is needed. An exit reader can be
installed depending on the actual requirement and connected to the fingerprint controller. The
fingerprint controller can be further to be networked with more flex controller or connect to
computer.
Determining System Structure and Components
Determine how many flex controllers and fingerprint controller are needed, and whether
an Ethernet interface is required.
1. Each EverAccess controller can accommodate up to 8 card readers. If the system
to be installed requires more than 8 readers, additional controllers are necessary.
These controllers can be connected to the system as described in chapter 4.
2. The fingerprint controller can support 2 readers (one built-in, one additional) on
one door. Also it can network with other Flex controllers.
3. If one or more controller is to be installed at a different location than the system
computer is to be installed, an Ethernet interface is required to connect over the
internet. An Ethernet interface may also be used in locations at which the
controllers are installed a long distance away from the system PC. Please refer to
chapter 4 for more details on installing the Ethernet interface.

Hardware Installation
In this chapter, after preparing for the installation, the user is ready to begin the install. This
section will describe, in general terms, how to install the hardware including wiring. Here are
the following processes:
•
Mount the support frame and controller
•
Connect the electric strikes or magnetic locks
•
Connect the door sensor
•
Connect the request-to-exit button
•
Install and connect the card reader (optional)
Mounting Fingerprint Controller
The fingerprint controller has a built-in reader working as an entry reader, so it should be
installed close to the door where it guides. As a common rule, the fingerprint controller
should not be installed on a metal, which will lower the card sense range.
The fingerprint controller package contains a supporting frame to elevate the controller in
order to make wire connections more convenient. The installation is described in the steps
below:
Step 1: Mount the supporting frame on to the wall.
Use the four anchor screws (provided in the package) to mount the frame to the wall.
Show it as the Fig. 6.
Step 2: Make cable hole
In the terminal area, marked as 1 in step 1 of the figure, make a hole on the wall, big
enough to allow all the wires go through. Note the wiring diagram will be addressed in the
following sections. Wire all the required cables before step 3.
Step 3: Mount the fingerprint controller to the supporting frame
Align the fingerprint controller to the 4 latches (marked as 2 to 5 in step 1 figure) on the
frame, and attach the controller to the frame (marked as 1 in step 2 figure). Make sure the
10
latches are in position. Then push down the controller a little bit to lock the position
(marked as 2 in step 2 figure).
Step 4: Lock the screw at bottom
Secure the controller to the base board by tiding the screws at bottom of controller
(exclusive screw driver is provided in the controller package).
Note: the screw has to be fastening to push down (secure) the tamper switch.

Fig. 6. Mount Fingerprint Controller
Connection to Door Lock
Electric strikes and magnetic locks are used to keep doors locked unless the system grants
access or the user sets the doors to remain unlocked. The installer must supply the electric
strikes and/or magnetic locks. It is recommended that the installer follow and keep the
instructions for these locks. One strike or mag lock is required for each door. These locks
11
must be powered separately from the controller. The mounting instructions for strikes and mag
locks vary depending on the manufacturer and type of lock. Please consult the instructions
included with the door hardware when installing. Once the locks are installed, follow the
instructions below to connect them to the controller.
The fingerprint controller has one door controller delay for the door lock control. Terminal 43
is named common terminals (COM). Terminal 42 is used for normally open terminal (N.O.)
locks. Terminal 44 is used for normally closed terminal (N.C.) locks.
The electrical door lock must have a separate power supply. The power supply for the electrical
door lock depends on the specification of the lock. Carefully choose the cable connecting the
door locks to fit the current draw. Two common types of electrical door locks in the market
are electric strike locks and magnetic locks. The connection methods for these examples are
shown in Fig. 7Fig. 8 respectively.

Please NOTE:
1. The maximum current outputted by the door lock relay on the fingerprint is less
than 5A. If the current for door lock exceeds the capacity, an external power relay
is needed.
2. V+ in the figures represents one lead of power from an external power source.
When using DC Voltage for the lock, put the positive lead here. When using AC
the leads are interchangeable.
Connection to Request-to-Exit
When fingerprint controller receives a valid signal (closed connection) from the request-to-exit
device, like a button, the controller will unlock the door for the specified open time. Connect
the request-to-exit device to terminal 12 and 13, shown as the below figure:

Connection to Alarm Input
Fingerprint controller supports 4 general alarm inputs, for example, a motion sensor or a glass
sensor. Normally the 4 alarm inputs can represent 4 arm zones, but they can be freely defined
based on the actual application. When a valid alarm input (closed circuit) is detected, the
13
controller will energize the specified alarm output relay. Fingerprint controller support 2 alarm
output relay and the 4 alarm inputs can be assigned to either one of the two alarm output relays.

Connection to Alarm Output
Two alarm output relays are included in the fingerprint controller. Same as other Flex series
controllers, fingerprint controller provides a flexible alarm output setting. Users can assign the
corresponding relay status to the different events. There are three terminals for each alarm
output relay: COM, N.O and N.C. The wiring depends on the alarm device. Please read the
user manual of the external alarm devices before wiring. Using the 1st alarm output relay as an
example, the wiring is shown in Fig. 12 and Fig. 13.

Connection to Fire Alarm
Fingerprint controller provides a special fire alarm input. Users can define either fail-safe or failsecure as door behavior on a valid fire alarm input (closed circuit). Connect fire alarm simply to
terminal 25 and 26 at the back of fingerprint controller. The connection is similar as the
connection to a general alarm input.
Connection to Tamper Switch Alarm Output
In step 3 to mount the fingerprint controller, a screw is needed to be locked at the bottom of
the controller. The screw is not only securing the controller, but also pushing down the tamper
switch. If someone tries to unlock the screw to remove the controller, tamper alarm will be
triggered and the controller will energize the tamper switch relay output. The NO, COM and
NC pin of the tamper switch relay are terminal 33, 34 and 35 respectively. Connect an alarm
device to these terminals if it is required by the application.
Connection to Door Bell
If users press
button on the front panel, the fingerprint controller will send a valid
signal (closed circuit) on door bell output. Connect terminal 45 and 46 to a bell device,
shown in the below figure:

Connection to Computer via RS232
As other EverAccess Flex series controller, the fingerprint controller is able to operate as a
stand-alone device or as a networked device, connected directly to a PC via serial port.
RS232
Fig. 16. Connecting Fingerprint Controller to a PC
To connect the fingerprint controller to the computer via RS232, the communication terminals
should be wired to the computer serial port as follows: the RS232 TX terminal of the controller
is linked to the RS232 RX of the serial port and the RS232 RX terminal is linked to the TX.
Note that 15 meter is the max distance of RS232 connection from fingerprint controller to
computer. Please use RS485 bus if the distance is longer than 15m.
Fig. 17 describes how to connect the DB9 port to the computer serial port. If a self-made
cable and interface is used for connection, then a DB9 female connector is required. The

Alarm Setting
The EBC890 fingerprint controller has 5 alarm inputs and 2 alarm outputs, and provides very
flexible configuration options. Any alarm event can be arbitrarily allocated to single or multiple
alarm outputs. Alarm components, configuration basics, and menu settings are introduced
below.
Alarm Configuration Basics
The EBC890 fingerprint controller keeps track of all events in the access control system, either
legal or illegal, either normal or abnormal, for example, the granted access, the denied access
and so on.
Some events are critical which must trigger the alarm output, like the firm alarm input, the zone
alarm input and etc. But some events are not that important to trigger the alarm output, like the
denied access during the invalid time. These settings all depend on the users’ requirements.
EBC890 controller collects all events that might trigger the alarm output and provides the full
capacity to enable or disable the alarm output on these events.
Sometimes user wants to allocate a particular event to a particular alarm output, or allocate
alarm inputs in certain area to multiple alarm outputs. EBC890 controller delivers all the
function and flexibility user need. User can define whether certain event will trigger an alarm,
and can further specify to which alarm output that event is allocated.
All events that might trigger an alarm are listed below:
41
Fire alarm, zone alarm 1~4, unknown user, expired user, invalid user, user PIN fail, invalid time
zone, system PIN fail, ARM PIN fail, door forced open, door held open, and remote alarm.
All these events can be allocated to any alarm output. Note the built-in buzzer will beep
when any alarm output is triggered for any reason. The detailed configuration method is
introduced in the following section.

Software Setup
Please Note: This is a brief instruction on EverAccess Flex Series Software for more
detailed instruction guide please refer to the EverAccess Flex Series Software Manual.
The next step after hardware installation is to configure the whole access control system. Flex
series controller has the ability to allow users configure the basic setting through the keypad on
the controller. But for the detailed, complicated settings, we recommend to use the
management software. To configure the system in software, several major steps that you need
to follow are shown as below:
1. Install the software in the control computer
2. Setup the user accounts who will use the software
3. Configure the controller and all other hardware settings
4. Configure the holidays, access group and the door control schedule
5. Enroll the cards and set the cardholders’ properties
Install the Software in the Control Computer
Just like installing any other software in the computer, inserts the software installation CD into
the CDROM, and run the setup program. Choose a special installation folder if needed,
otherwise just follow the setup wizard and choose the default selection.
To run the software, you need the administrator privilege and the basic computer requirement
is as follows:
1. Pentium 3 CPU
2. Windows 2K, XP
3. 100M bytes free space in hard drive
4. 128M memory
For the details of the software installation and the minimum computer requirement, please
refer to the software manual.
50
Setup the User Accounts for the Software
A User of Flex series access control software is a person who operates the software at any user
interface. Each user belongs to a certain authority group. The authority group defines the
authority level of users over the operations in the software. Different authority groups have the
different access to the operations in the software.
The first step to use the software is to setup a user list that defines who will be able to use the
software, and assign the authority group to each user. This user name and the password will be
required to login the software.
Please note that a user in admin group is required to configure all the other settings.
For the details to setup a user account, please refer to the software manual.
Configure the Controller and All Other Hardware
In this step, users need to set all the configurations for the controllers, doors, readers and
alarms. All these configurations are closely related to the hardware. The rough sub steps are as
below:
1. Add a controller to the system
Go to the controller configuration dialog box in the software. Click the ‘add’ button,
give the RS485 address for the controller, set the serial port for the controller and click
the submit button to connect a controller.
If the wiring is correct and the address of the controller is valid, the software should be
able to find the controller and show the status of the controller as ‘online’. This
indicates that the controller has been added to the system.
2. Configure the door settings
Door name, door open time and door held open time should be configured in this step.
Door name is used to help users remember the door location and help make the
configuration process easier.
Door open time defines the amount of time that the door can remain open after the
door is unlocked, before an alarm is generated by the controller.
For more detailed information on door settings, please refer to the chapter in this
manual entitled “controller functionality and configuration”.
3. Configure the reader settings
Users can configure the following properties of the readers: the reader-to-door
allocation, the keypad reader and the system reader. For the more details about the
reader settings, please refer to chapter 6.
On the EFC-02, readers can be allocated to different doors, and can be set as ENTER
only or EXIT only. So set these properties following the system access control plan.
51
Keypad Settings define whether the reader is a keypad reader.
The System Reader can be used to acquire the card’s serial number easily and
conveniently.
4. Configure the alarm settings
All of the alarm inputs can be assigned to the different alarm outputs. Also users can
set the events that can trigger alarm outputs.
Configure the Holidays, Access Group and Door Control
Schedule
At this step, users will configure the holidays, access groups and the door control schedule.
1. Configure the holidays
Users can add or delete holidays in the software. Beside holidays, two additional types
of dates are supplied in the system. Different access rules can be applied to different
dates.
2. Configure the access groups
An access group defines a group of cardholders who share the same access rules at the
associated access points and at specified times. Set the access rules for the access group
here. And assign the cardholder to a certain access group in the next step.
3. Configure the door control schedule
On the Flex series controller, the door can be configured as normally open, with card,
with PIN and card, which means, respectively, the door will be remain open, a valid
card has to be presented, and both a valid card and a PIN have to be presented to
require the access.
Please refer to the software manual for the details.
Enroll Card Holders
This will explain the steps to enroll card holders in the system. There are two ways to enroll a
card holder:
1. Enter the card number manually.
2. Present a card at the desktop reader and the card number will be added into the system
automatically.
The properties for each card should be input at this time. The primary properties are card
holder name, PIN, forced PIN, and access group. Users can configure the cardholders
individually or can do batch configurations if a group of cardholders share common properties.
52
Enroll Fingerprints for Card Holders
Fingerprints for card holders can be enrolled not only from the controller, but also from the
software. An additional fingerprint module is required to enroll fingerprints from software.
Only a couple of models from Secugen are able to work with the software. Model Hamster
Plus is recommended to use. Customers can buy a fingerprint controller kit from EverFocus
that includes a Hamster Plus USB fingerprint reader, or buy it directly from Secugen
(www.secugen.com).
Users need to install the Secugen USB reader driver and connect the fingerprint reader to
enable the fingerprint registration function. Same as the fingerprint controller, two fingerprints
are used for each card holder.
Users can either download the card holders’ information from software to the controller, or
upload the data from controller to the software.
Please refer to the software manual, for the details of registering fingerprints for card holders in
software or other operations.
