Single Door iCAM Entry does not require any software purchase. iCAM Entry Windows PC software is included with model
iCAM7101EC1. iCAM Entry will support up to three iCAM 7 Series readers.
Iris Access (EAC) Software
Iris enrollment, configuration and Central Database. Iris Access EAC SW can write iris templates to a database and smartcards. Matching iris can
be in 1:1 (verification) or 1:N (identification mode / 1 to Many) 3 Factor authentication is also possible with a third party access control system
interfacing with iCAM and EAC software via wiegand output.

Multiple concurrent enrollment stations are supported with Iris Access EAC
With Iris Access EAC software there is a centrally located iCAM for Enrollment. That being said any door mounted
iCAM can technically be used as an enrollment camera. Door iCAMs not recommended to be used for enrollment.
iCAM Entry Software
iCAM Entry is designed for small system deployments, three or less iCAM’s, 200 user capacity.
iCAM Entry allows for administrator authorized On Device Local Enrollment via the LCD screen .
The feature set of iCAM Entry is designed for SOHO environment as each reader is managed individually.
Communication & Wiring
All iCAMs require a static IP address and network connection through CAT5/CAT6
Most commonly Ethernet, DC Power and Wiegand are used at each door.
All iCAMs require 12 to 24 VDC power (2 A Max @ 12vDC),
Iris ID power supplies can be purchased and are recommended for enrollment station.
3rd Party power supply are often used for door cameras (Altronix, etc.). Wiegand connection also required.
Optional Accessories

* iCAM Entry can distribute data to other Iris Readers manually
through the include Windows application.
Iris Access EAC is robust and will automatically distribute user data
to a predetermined set of iris reader groups.
Iris ID Identity Check fraud screen
iCAM Entry is built on top of iCAM Manager SDK.
iCAM Entry cannot run concurrent with iCAM Manager SDK. Each
iCAM Device supports a single host connection. When iCAM
Manager SDK is used iCAM Entry cannot be connected to iCAM
Entry at the same time.
Iris Access EAC has multiple applications - Iris Server, Iris Enroll, Iris
Manager, Iris DB Admin
Iris Access EAC Software current release is version 3.10
Iris Access EAC is backwards compatible with IrisAccess4000 / IrisAccess7000 Series hardware.
iCAM Entry Application software only supports iCAM 7 Series devices.
iCAM 4000 Series End of Life 2013
Legacy Support: IrisAccess7000 and IrisAccess4000 are compatible.
Iris ID iCAMs with EAC software can work in several modes and send wiegand to an ACP*
1:N mode where the iris database is stored on server and on iCAM. Only iris is used for
authentication. Database size can be up to 100 thousand with Iris Access EAC.
1:1 mode using a card or pin as a verifier with Iris (Pin known to iCAM).
1:1 mode using a card that can store iris data written to the smartcard directly.
1:1:1 3 Factor mode : Card+Iris+Pin for example where the access panel would be set to
“Card+Pin”. Card+Iris would match and output card # to ACP, and then a PIN is output to the
Access Panel which is waiting for pin. In this case Pin is known only to the ACP, and not the
External card readers (125khz low frequency or high frequency 13.56 MHz card readers can
also be connected to the IrisAccess 7 Series models via the wiegand input.
Wiegand inputs and Wiegand outputs are included on all iCAM7 models.
Built in LCD “ten key” keypad on the iCAM 7 models can send a pin number via 8 Bit burst, 4
Bit burst or as a formatted Card ID to the Wiegand ACP panel.
