Introduction
Introduction
This chapter provides you with an overview of the various
PassPoint Access Control Kits. It also provides a full
description of the PassPoint Access Starter Kit and the steps
involved in getting your system installed and configured.
In this chapter you will learn about:
•
The contents of this section
•
The contents of your PassPoint Access Starter Kit
Introduction to Setup 1-1
Understanding PassPoint Kits
This guide is about PassPoint Kits, the basic pre-configured
PassPoint packages you will use to quickly get your system up
and running. All kits are self-contained. By combining kits
(and separate PassPoint modules), you can expand and build on
any existing PassPoint installation.
There are four types of PassPoint kits:
• Basic Starter Kit (BSK)
The BSK contains everything except card readers and cards that
you need to get a two-door installation up and running. This kit
is designed primarily for retrofit installations.
• Access Starter Kit (ASK)
The ASK contains everything you need to get a two-door
installation up and running. It is the basic building block of
most PassPoint systems. Most of this guide describes the ASK.
• Door Expansion Kit (DEK)
The DEK allows you to add two more doors to an already
operational PassPoint system. The components of the DEK, as
well as installation and configuration instructions, are provided
in the “Adding a Door Expansion Kit” chapter of this guide.
• Card Enrollment Kit (CEK)
The CEK is a kit that allows you to quickly enroll system ID
cards. It consists of a stand-alone card enrollment reader that
connects directly into your existing system. Installation and
configuration instructions for the CEK are provided in the
“Adding a Card Enrollment Kit” chapter of this guide.
In addition to these kits, you can also add individual system
modules to a PassPoint system. For information about
individual modules, refer to “Adding System Modules” chapter
of this guide.

What’s In Section One?
Section One of this guide contains everything you need to get
your PassPoint Access Starter Kit up and running. It will walk
you step-by-step through all the procedures from installing your
hardware to enrolling some test ID cards. Once you have
enrolled some test cards, you can test your system to see if your
system is running properly. When installing the Basic Starter
Kit, follow the procedures for the Access Starter Kit. Items not
applicable to the Basic Starter Kit are noted at the points they
apply within this guide.
This section has been written from the perspective of a twodoor system only. If you have purchased a PassPoint Door
Expansion Kit or Card Enrollment Kit, refer to Section Two of
this guide for complete instructions on installing and
configuring these kits.
This section of the guide has been divided into four parts:
•
Part One - Preparing For Your Installation
Before attempting to install the PassPoint system, there are
several preparations you should make. Proper preparation
will make the task of installing the system much easier.
Chapter 2 tells you how to prepare for your installation.
•
Part Two - System Installation
Chapter 3 is the system installation section of this guide.
This section tells you how to connect all of the system
modules that come with your kit, including mounting the
cabinet and wiring your card readers.

Part Three - PassPoint Express Installation
PassPoint Express is the system software you will be using
to configure and operate your PassPoint system. It needs to
be installed on your user computer (i.e. the PC you will be
using to connect to the system’s panel). Chapter 4 covers
the entire installation of PassPoint Express.
•
Part Four - System Configuration
After you have installed your system hardware, you need to
configure the system so that it will operate properly. Most
configuration options for your PassPoint Starter Kit have
already been defaulted at the factory, but there are some
configuration options that still need to be set by you, such as
setting up your doors and enrolling access cards.
Configuration information begins in Chapter 5.
About Your PassPoint Access Starter Kit
The PassPoint Access Starter Kit (ASK) has been designed to
be easy to install and configure. Where possible, default
configuration options have been provided. If you follow the
procedures in this guide, you should have no trouble getting

PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Major components
There are four main components to your PassPoint system.
They are:
Main Logic Board (MLB)
The MLB is the central controller of the PassPoint system. It
contains the card database, the event log, and system
configuration information. It also keeps track of the system
status. The MLB receives its power from the PassPoint power
supply, and communicates with the Door Control Module
(described below) to determine if access should be granted at a
particular Access Point.
Door Control Module (DCM)
The DCM provides all the inputs and outputs required to
manage two Access Points (i.e. doors). The DCM can connect
to two card readers and simultaneously accept card data from
two card readers. It provides two Form C, supervised output
(i.e. voltage monitored) relays which are used to operate
electromagnetic door locks or door jamb-mounted lock strikes.
It also provides two trigger outputs which can be used to
operate sounders or LEDs.
The PassPoint system power supply
The PassPoint system power supply provides all the power
needed by the MLB and DCM. It is connected to the AC line
voltage via an 18VAC, 50VA Basler-type plug-in power
transformer (supplied with your kit). The power supply
provides a battery backup/charger connection and supports a
7AmpHour battery (not supplied).
Connection information and specifications for the power supply
can be found in Appendix A.
Introduction to Setup 1-7
The PassPoint Express system interface
PassPoint Express is a Windows 95, Windows 98, and
Windows NT 4.0 compatible software program that allows the
computer to communicate with the Main Logic Board of the
system. You will be using PassPoint Express to configure the
system. After the system is up and running, the system
operators will be using PassPoint Express to operate PassPoint.
The Passpoint Express system interface requires a computer.
The computer is used to configure and operate the system,
although the computer is not necessary for the system to run
unattended. Also, if you are running PassPoint Express
remotely, you will need two modems to connect the computer
with the PassPoint system. Both the computer and modems are
considered accessories and are not included with your
PassPoint Access Starter Kit.
Refer to the “System Requirements” section of Chapter 4 for
more information.

2-2 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
How Should You Prepare For Your
Installation?
With PassPoint, proper preparation is essential to a sound,
problem-free installation. It involves knowing your site and its
Access Points, and knowing the level of security desired for
each point. It also involves the proper placement and utilization
of system hardware.
Because the system is so flexible, it allows you to install its
components in multiple ways. There are, however, several
things common to each installation, such as Access Points and
hardware. These common configuration issues are a good place
to start when preparing for your own installation.
Understanding
Access Points
PassPoint defines Access Points beyond the conventional
definition of a simple door. An Access Point represents a
collection of objects (i.e. resources) that allow entry/egress
through a portal. These objects include the hardware related
items (readers, locks, etc.) as well as software functions that
parameterize the Access Point (schedules, cardholders, etc.).
Ask yourself
some basic
questions
A good approach to preparing for your installation is to ask
questions about the site into which PassPoint is being installed.
Answering these questions will help you determine the type of
hardware you need, where it should be placed, how it should be
wired, etc. Then, after you’ve installed and wired your system
hardware, you will be able to configure it using one of the
system’s interfaces.
Below are some of the questions that you will need to answer
before you can begin your installation. It should be noted that
these questions pertain to a general installation. Because of the
Preparing For Your Installation 2-3
flexibility of PassPoint, it is impossible to foresee and describe
every possible installation scenario. But when used as a general
guide, the answers to these questions will have you well on your
way to a successful PassPoint installation.
Question 1 - Where will my Access Points be?
This is perhaps the most important consideration when
preparing for your installation. Access points, or doors, control
the entry and egress from a premises, as well as the flow of
traffic within the premises. You will have to determine which
doors you want to control.
See the section of this chapter titled ‘Selecting Your Access
Points’ for instructions on choosing your system’s Access
Points.
Question 2 - What level of security should I
have for my Access Points?
Security levels for Access Points can vary, depending on what
type of system hardware the Access Point has and how it is
configured. You can have a door with only a card reader, or
with a card reader/keypad combination. The door can be
monitored for its status, or it can simply be allowed to stay open
unconditionally. Many other security level options are also
available.
See the section of this chapter titled ‘Selecting Your Access
Points’ for information regarding Access Point security levels.
2-4 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Question 3 - What type of door control hardware should I use?
The type of door control hardware you should choose depends
in part on the level of security you want for each Access Point.
As stated above, you can have doors that have only a single card
reader, or you can have card reader/keypad combination units
requiring an occupant to enter a PIN code after swiping his/her
card. There are many types of door control hardware available,
as well as different ways to configure them. The minimum
hardware requirement for an access point is a relay.
Question 4 - Where will my system computer
be located?
You must determine where the computer running your system
software will be located. You are not limited by physical
distance, since the Main Logic Board of the system can
communicate to your system interface via modem, if you wish.
Using a Floor Plan
When preparing for your PassPoint installation, it is strongly
recommended that you obtain a floor plan of the installation
premises, if possible. A floor plan will allow you to visualize
your installation and help you to determine your Access Points
and hardware locations. A floor plan can be any blue print or
design plan showing the “foot print” (i.e., the top view) of the
premises.
If you are unable to obtain a floor plan of the premises, you can
simply draw one yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything
elaborate, just a simple aerial view of the building showing its
doors and rooms scaled to their approximate dimensions.
Preparing For Your Installation 2-5
Dimensions are important because there are wire length
considerations that must be kept in mind when wiring together
the system hardware.
Here is an example of a simple floor plan:
Warehouse
Here’s a business office
without PassPoint
installed. Note that
every room is accessible
to everyone.
Conference
Room
Office
Computer
Room
Office
Main
Entry
Of course, your own floor plan may be much more extensive
than this one, but the principles involved are the same. You
have a premises with a main entry/exit door, and the premises
contains other rooms and facilities that must also be protected.
2-6 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Now with this floor plan in hand, you can decide what you want
to protect and how to do it:
= Card Reader or
Keypad
Warehouse
That same premises with
PassPoint installed now
controls the flow of people between rooms.
Conference
Room
Office
Computer
Room
Office
Main
Entry
In the case of this PassPoint installation, you can see that most
of the rooms of the premises have been protected with a card
reader (or keypad). The conference room, however, has been
left unprotected by the PassPoint system, since it needs to be
accessed by everyone at any given time. It should be noted
again that although the floor plan above shows the use of card
readers or keypads, these devices could just have easily been
combination (card reader with keypad) units.
Preparing For Your Installation 2-7
Selecting Your Access Points
The first step in preparing to install your PassPoint system is to
select your Access Points. Simply put, Access Points are the
doors that people will use to enter and exit the premises being
controlled. Once you’ve chosen what doors you want
monitored, you can then decide the level of access control you
want for each. This will determine the type of hardware needed
for each Access Point.
Access point
configurations
can vary
Each Access Point can be configured in several different ways.
Each way provides a different degree of security and can
enforce a direction of passage through the Access Point.
Remember that an Access Point is really a combination of
system resources (i.e., card readers, door control relays, and
protective zones). The way you combine these resources
determines the level of security for the Access Point. It also
determines whether the Access Point is a Door Status Monitor
(DSM) zone or a Request-to-Exit (RTE) zone. DSM and RTE
are the two kinds of protective zones. An Access Point can be
one of these zone types, both types, or neither.
Below are some sample Access Point entry control
configurations. They range from very simple (and
consequently less secure) to fairly elaborate.
2-8 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Example 1 - Basic entry control
The simplest configuration for entry control is to have an entry
reader and a door control relay positioned at the Access Point:
Entry
Reader
Door Strike
In this configuration, the cardholder swipes his/her ID card at
the card reader to gain entry to the Access Point. The reader
reads the data on the card and PassPoint determines whether or
not to grant access to the cardholder. If access is granted, the
door control relay at the Access Point is energized and the door
strike is unlocked, allowing the cardholder to enter.
Preparing For Your Installation 2-9
Example 2 - Entry control with Door Status
Monitoring
Here is the same configuration as Example 1, only with Door
Status Monitoring added:
DSM ZONE
Entry
Reader
Door Strike
As its name implies, Door Status Monitoring allows the system
to constantly monitor the Access Point for any change in its
status. It lets the system know when the door has been forced
open or when it has been held open longer than normal after
access has been granted. Without DSM, as in Example 1, the
system only determines whether or not to grant access. It does
not monitor the status of the Access Point for anything unusual.
2-10 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Example 3 - Entry control with Door Status
Monitoring and Request-to-Exit
Add Request-to-Exit to an Access Point, and you can control
when to allow occupants to exit:
DSM ZONE
Entry
Reader
RTE ZONE
(example of pushbutton method)
Door Strike
RTE zones allow the system to understand when the Access
Point’s door is to be unlatched so that an occupant may exit.
The device used for RTE can be a button that the occupant must
push to exit, or it can be an infra-red motion detector that
automatically detects when an occupant is near the door. In
either case, the device is always mounted on the protected side
of the Access Point.
Preparing For Your Installation 2-11
Example 4 - Entry and exit control with Door
Status Monitoring
For added security, an exit reader can be added to the Access
Point:
DSM ZONE
Entry
Reader
Exit
Reader
Door Strike
When an Access Point has an exit reader, occupants must
“swipe out” in order to exit. That is, they will have to show the
system their card again. Unlike the RTE zone described in
Example 3, this configuration directs the system to be very
selective about who is allowed to exit. Only occupants with a
valid ID card may exit through the Access Point.
2-12 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Door Control Module configuration
Because each DCM has inputs and outputs for only two devices
(i.e., card readers, keypads, or combination units), these
limitations must be kept in mind when planning your
installation. Specifically, which doors do you want to control
and how do you want to control them?
Consider again the Access Point examples given in the previous
sections. In the first example, we have a basic entry control
system with a single card reader:
Entry
Reader
In this example, since there is only one reader assigned to the
door, the DCM used for the Access Point still has one input
remaining.
Preparing For Your Installation 2-13
Therefore, this DCM can be used to manage another door
(provided that door also has only one device), as in the diagram
below:
Door Control Module
Entry
Reader
Entry
Reader
If an Access Point has two readers on it, both inputs of the
DCM are required. There are a number of times when this will
be the case, and you must be aware of them in order to plan
your installation properly.
For example, if you have an Access Point that requires both
an entry reader and an exit reader, you will need to wire both
devices to the inputs of the DCM. This will require using the
entire input capacity of the DCM for one access point.
2-14 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
This example is illustrated below:
Door Control Module
Entry
Reader
Exit
Reader
When you install your DCMs, you will have to remember the
limitations described above. Knowing how DCMs can be
configured directly relates to how many DCMs you will need
and where to position them.
Types of Card Readers
With PassPoint, there are several types of card readers that can
be used throughout the system. You have already seen two of
the reader types (entry readers and exit readers) used in the
examples in the previous section. Each PassPoint reader type is
explained below:
Entry readers - These readers are used to control entry to an
Access Point. The Cardholder swipes his/her card at the reader
to gain entry. The reader reads the data on the card and the
system determines if access should be granted. If access is
Preparing For Your Installation 2-15
granted, the door is unlocked for a specified period of time
(defined by the installer) and the Cardholder can open the door.
Exit readers - Exit readers work nearly identically to entry
readers, except that they are used to control egress from an
Access Point.
Command readers - These are readers that are used to perform
specific functions, or “commands.” For instance, a command
reader might be positioned in the front hall of a building within
easy reach of someone coming through the front door. When
the Cardholder swipes his/her card at the reader, the lights for
the building might go on. The card swipe does not unlock the
door. Instead, an event/action relationship has been set up
between the Cardholder’s card and the reader.
Enrollment readers - These readers are used to enroll new
cards into the system. Cards can be added individually or in a
batch using an enrollment reader.
All card readers, no matter what their function in the system,
connect directly to Door Control Modules. The only exception
to this is enrollment readers. Enrollment readers can connect to
a Door Control Module, or they can be connected directly to a
Computer Port Module (CPM). The CPM has a built-in card
reader used specifically for card enrollment.
The function that a reader performs is set during module
configuration after the reader has been connected to a DCM.
When you configure a DCM, the system will ask you about the
reader(s) connected to the module. You then tell the system
which function you want the reader to perform.
2-16 Preparing For Your Installation
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Committed and
uncommitted
readers
All readers, no matter what their function, fall within two main
categories: committed and uncommitted.
•
Committed Readers
Committed readers are readers directly associated with Access
Points. That is, they control entry or exit through a door. These
readers can be straight entry readers, entry with door status
monitoring, straight exit, etc. The committed reader is the most
common type of reader in an installation, and is the one that
most Cardholders will be familiar with. The Cardholder swipes
his/her card at a committed reader to gain entry or egress
through a door.
•
Uncommitted Readers
Uncommitted readers are NOT associated with Access Points.
Although they connect to DCMs just as committed readers do,
they do not control entry or egress through doors.
Uncommitted readers can either be command readers or
enrollment readers. CEK/CPM readers are always
uncommitted readers.
Where do you go from here?
Now that you have made the proper preparations, you can begin
installing your system. Full instructions for installing your
system are included in the next chapter. Here you will see how

PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Below is a list of all the steps you must perform in order to
install your PassPoint system. Each step is covered in detail in
this chapter. Follow each step in order, referring to the
applicable section of this chapter:
STEP 1
Mount the
System Panel
The panel is the cabinet in which the main components (the modules) of the
system are housed. It should be mounted in a convenient, easily accessible
place. Refer to the section of this chapter titled ‘Step 1 - Mount the System
Panel’ for instructions on performing this step.
STEP 2
Connect
Modules
The power supply, Main Logic Board, and Door Control Module must be
wired together in order to function. Refer to the section of this chapter titled
‘Step 2 - Connect the System Modules’ for instructions on performing this step.
STEP 3
Connect
Readers
Your card readers are the devices that will read the ID cards you issue to the
occupants of the premises. They mount at each door you want to protect and
get connected directly to the system’s Door Control Module. Refer to the
section of this chapter titled ‘Step 3 - Mount and Connect Card Readers’ for
instructions on performing this step.
STEP 4
Connect
Door Strikes or
Locks
Door strikes and magnetic locks are used to keep Access Points locked to
unauthorized entry. One door strike or magnetic lock mounts at each door you
want to protect and gets connected directly to the system’s Door Control
Module. Refer to the section of this chapter titled ‘Step 4 - Mount and Connect
Door Strikes and Magnetic Locks’ for instructions on performing this step.
STEP 5
Connect
Computer Cable
The Main Logic Board of the system connects to your computer via a RS-232
type null modem cable (Direct Wire) or via modems and modem cables
(Remote Terminal). This allows the PassPoint Express program to
communicate with the system and allows you to configure and operate the
system. Refer to the section of this chapter titled ‘Step 5 - Connect the
Computer Cable’ for instructions on performing this step.
The system uses an Ademco 6139 keypad to display system status and to
annunciate trouble and alarm conditions. This is an optional step, and is only
necessary if your system has a keypad. Refer to the section of this chapter
titled ‘Step 6 - Mount and Connect the Keypad and Power-up the System’ for
instructions on performing this step.
STEP 6
Connect
Keypad
STEP 7
Connect
Battery
A optional 12 volt 7 amphere-hour battery is available for the system.. This is
an optional step, and is only necessary if your system has the optional battery.
Refer to the section of this chapter titled ‘Step 7 - Connect the Optional 7
Amphere-Hour Battery’ for instructions on performing this step.
System Installation 3-3
Step 1 - Mount the System Panel
The ASK panel (or cabinet) contains all of the modules of the
PassPoint system. All of the modules have been pre-mounted
and await cabling. When the door to the panel is removed, the
inside of the cabinet looks like this:
Panel with MLB,
DCM and power
supply.
Power Supply
Door Control
Module
Main Logic
Board
Choosing a
mounting area
System Installation 3-4
When selecting a mounting area for the panel, choose a clean,
dry place not readily accessible to the general public but
convenient enough so that a technician can get at the panel
easily. The panel should be mounted on a sturdy wall using
fasteners or anchors (not supplied in your kit). Also, the panel
needs to be mounted near a suitable AC outlet and the system’s
computer. Refer to Appendix A of this guide for applicable
wiring distance parameters.
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
To mount the panel, follow the procedure below:
1. Position the cabinet on the wall and use the holes in the
back of the cabinet to mark your four mounting holes.
2. Using four anchors or fasteners, mount the cabinet to
the wall.
When mounting the cabinet, be very careful not to jar the
system’s PC boards.
For ease of installation, seven removable terminal blocks,
ADEMCO 4142BLK, have been included with the kit.
Step 2 - Connect the System Modules
Connecting the system modules within the cabinet actually
involves three steps:
•
Connecting the MLB to the power supply
•
Connecting the DCM to the MLB and power supply
•
Connecting the MLB ribbon cable
When making these connections, refer to Appendix A, Wiring
Considerations, for diagrams and system ratings.
System Installation 3-5
Connect the MLB
to power supply
1. Connect the leads of the wall pack power transformer to
terminals 1 and 2 of the power supply.
2. Connect the local power jumper between power supply
connector J1 and MLB connector J1.
This is the most common way of connecting the MLB to the
power supply. However, if you do not want to use the
jumper, you can connect the local power from the power
supply to the MLB using wire runs between the terminal
strips.
Do not plug transformer in until all other wiring connections are
made.
When making all system connections, be sure that leads are
secure in their terminals and not frayed or touching other
components on the panel.
Connecting the
DCM to the MLB
and power supply
1. Connect the remote power jumper between power supply connector J5 and DCM connector J1.
Remote power supply power (i.e. J5) is used for powering
DCMs when the DCM is mounted in a cabinet with a Main
Logic Board.
2. Connect two network connection leads between the
MLB and DCM.
Connect one lead between terminal 1 of the DCM and terminal 16 of the MLB.
Connect the other lead between terminal 2 of the DCM and
terminal 15 of the MLB.
Note that the system is polarity insensitive. On the network,
you may connect either terminal 1 or 2 of the DCM to either
terminal 15 or 16 of the MLB, then connect the other DCM
System Installation 3-6
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
terminal to the remaining MLB terminal. Be sure to install a
termination resistor on the network. You may use either a
single 52.3 ohm resistor across terminals 15 and 16 of the
MLB, or two 105 ohm resistors, one across MLB terminals
15 and 16 and the other across DCM terminals 1 and 2.
Use twisted pair wiring for these connections. Also, use proper
termination for the modules. Refer to Appendix A for details.
Connect the MLB
ribbon cable
The system comes with a nine-pin ribbon cable used to connect
the MLB to the computer cable. One end of this cable gets
connected to the MLB. The other end gets mounted onto the
cabinet, so that the computer cable can be plugged into it.
1. Connect the RS-232 ribbon cable to connector J2 on the
right side of the MLB.
The RS-232 ribbon cable allows communication between
the MLB and the system computer.
2. Secure the other end of the ribbon cable (i.e. the 9-pin
“D” connector) to the right side of the cabinet using
hardware supplied.
Step 3 - Mount and Connect Card Readers
Your PassPoint Access Starter Kit comes with two card readers.
Each card reader gets mounted near an Access Point (i.e., door)
and is wired directly to your system’s Door Control Module
(DCM). A single DCM has input connections for two readers.
Therefore, one DCM can control two doors, each with a single
reader.
First, you will need to mount your readers at your Access
Points. After they have been mounted, you can connect them to
System Installation 3-7
your DCM. The instructions for performing both procedures
are included in this section.
Specifications and connection information for the PassPoint
power supply can be found in Appendix A at the end of this
guide.
Mounting card readers
1. Using the reader as a drilling template, drill two holes in
each mounting wall for the readers.
2. Using the reader mounting hardware included with the
readers, secure the readers to the wall.
Connecting card readers
Once the card readers are mounted, you can connect them to the
system. To do so:
1. Wire the leads from card reader #1 to the applicable terminals of the DCM.
Use the chart below to connect the leads from the card
reader to the specified terminals of the DCM:

Refer to Appendix A for proper wire-run lengths.
System Installation 3-9
Step 4 - Mount and Connect Door Strikes and
Magnetic Locks
Door strikes and magnetic locks are used to keep Access Points
locked against unauthorized entry. One door strike or magnetic
lock mounts at each door you want to protect. Door strikes and
magnetic locks receive their power from the PassPoint power
supply through the output relays of the DCM.
The PassPoint Access Starter Kit does not ship with door strikes
or magnetic locks. PassPoint can support most types of door
locking hardware compatible with the system’s power supply
specifications. This hardware can be purchased from any
reputable dealer of security hardware.
Also, be sure to keep any documentation accompanying this
hardware. You will need to refer to it for mounting and
connection information.
It is absolutely necessary to use an electric suppressor such as
EL-EDS (manufactured by EDCO) to provide transient
protection for magnetic locks/door strikes and relay contacts.
Install the suppressor across the leads connected to the lock as
close as possible to the lock.
Mounting door strikes and magnetic locks
The procedure for mounting door locking hardware varies with
the type of hardware you plan to use. Refer to the
documentation accompanying your door strikes or magnetic
locks for instructions on performing this step.
System Installation 3-10
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Connecting door strikes and magnetic locks
To connect a door strike or magnetic lock, follow the procedure
below and refer to the Connection diagrams in Appendix A.
1. Wire the door strike output of the power supply to the
common terminal of the DCM output relay.
The door strike output of the power supply is terminal #7.
The common terminal of the DCM output relay is terminal
#29 for door A, terminal #24 for door B.
2. Wire the normally open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.)
terminal of the DCM relay to the door strike or magnetic lock. A minimum distance of 6 inches must be
maintained between the door strike wiring and any
other wire for the length of the wire.
If you are wiring a door strike, use an N.O. terminal. The
N.O. terminals are #28 for door A, #23 for door B.
If you are wiring a magnetic lock, use an N.C. terminal.
The N.C. terminals are #30 for door A, #25 for door B.
3. Wire the door strike or magnetic lock to the ground terminal of the power supply (terminal #8). A minimum
distance of 6 inches must be maintained between the
door strike wiring and any other wire for the length of
the wire.
Refer to Appendix A for proper wire-run lengths.
Connecting DSM
and RTE devices
Zones A through D of the DSM (terminals 5 through 10) can be
used for optional Door Status Monitoring (DSM) or RequestTo-Exit (RTE) devices.
System Installation 3-11
Connect these devices according to the DCM summary of
connections diagram. Also, refer to Appendix A of this guide
for applicable wiring information, and Chapter 10 for a
description of the different possible zone configurations.
Step 5 - Connect the Computer Cable
The PassPoint panel may be connected directly to your system
interface via an RS-232 cable (Hard Wire Connection) or via
modem cables, modems, and a telephone line when your panel
is at a different location than the computer (Remote Terminal
Connection).
Hard Wire Connection
The PassPoint panel connects to your system computer (i.e.,
PC) via an RS-232 cable when using a Hard Wire Connection.
The cable goes from the PassPoint system to an available COM
port on your computer.
If you intend to use a longer cable than the RS-232 cable
supplied, you will need to purchase or make a “null modem”
cable or extension cable to be used with the supplied null
modem cable. The null modem cable or extension cable must be
wired as shown in the following illustrations.

Step 6 - Mount and Connect the Keypad and
Power-up the System
The PassPoint system uses a standard Ademco 6139 alphanumeric keypad (supplied with the ASK) to display system
status and to annunciate trouble conditions such as door-open
time-out alarms. The keypad can be mounted on the wall
beside the main system cabinet or can be mounted directly on
the cabinet. Either way, the keypad should be mounted in an
area where its display can be seen quickly and its audible signal
can be heard. Only one keypad can be used with the PassPoint
system.
The information provided in this section is only to get the
system keypad up and running. Additional information about
the keypad can be found in the installation instructions provided
with the 6139 keypad.
Keypad wiring

keypad address
The keypad’s address must be set to “00” in order for it to
function properly. If the address is not set correctly, an error
message (Open Ckt) will appear on the keypad display when
the PassPoint system is powered up. To set the keypad address:
1. Power up the PassPoint system.
The keypad must be powered-up in order to set the address.
Powering up the PassPoint system powers up the keypad.
To power-up the system, plug in the system’s wallpack
transformer.
Do not attempt to power-up the system/keypad until previously
described connections have been made.
2. Within 60 seconds of power-up, press and hold down the
“1” and “3” keys of the keypad simultaneously.

What Is PassPoint Express?
PassPoint Express is a Windows 95, Windows 98, and
Windows NT 4.0 compatible software program that allows you
to configure and operate the PassPoint access control system.
Essentially, PassPoint Express allows your computer to
communicate with the main logic board of the system.
With PassPoint Express, you can configure all of the options
necessary to get your system up and running, perform system
maintenance, and monitor system functioning. While
monitoring the system, PassPoint Express displays a scrolling
list of system events. A user can then log on and enter the
program’s visually oriented system, which allows full screen
editing of configurable options.
The PassPoint system does not need to be connected to the
PassPoint Express computer in order to function. The computer
is only used to configure and monitor the system. Once the
system is up and running, the computer can be disconnected
(either intentionally or unintentionally) without disrupting the
operation of the system.

4-6 Software Setup
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Step 2 - Start PassPoint Express
To start PassPoint Express on your computer:
1. Select PassPoint Express from the Windows Program
menu.
In a few moments, the system will prompt you for a user
name and password:
2. Enter your default user name and password and click
OK.

Operator; however, you need to log in as Installer in order to be
able to do the complete installation. Once the system is
operational you should change the default logins for the system.
Once you click OK, the system brings up a new Account dialog
box. In order to continue, you must create a new Account (see
the next step in this chapter).
Always close PassPoint Express before shutting down your
Windows computer. Improper shutdown of your computer can
cause the computer to experience shutdown problems, as well
as possibly corrupting the PassPoint Express database.
Software Setup 4-7
Step 3 - Create a New Account
The first time you start PassPoint Express, the system prompts
you with a dialog box for creating a new Account:
Before you can proceed to configuring your system, you must
create a new Account.
What is an
Account?
In order to make using your system’s database efficient,
PassPoint uses system Accounts. An Account is a partition of a
database that allows Express to manage more than one system
(i.e. more than one MLB). Each MLB is assigned a specific
Account number. Then, when you want to access a database
(for backing up, event viewing, etc.), you select the applicable
Account number.
Accounts help you manage the PassPoint system by treating
each MLB as an independent unit. Each MLB is assigned a
unique Account number. Using this number, you can back up
and restore the database for a specific MLB, view the event log
for the MLB, generate reports, etc. For installers who use
PassPoint Express to administer multiple sites belonging to the
4-8 Software Setup
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
same customer, a separate Account should be set up for each
site. This way, when you bring up PassPoint Express, you can
select the Account (i.e., site) you want to work with.
Even though your Starter Kit has only one MLB, you still need
an Account, because you cannot back up or restore the database
without an Account. In this case, you will need to set up only
one Account.
If the system is configured to dial into an alarm company
central station, this Account number will be used to identify all
transmissions to the central station.
What information
is in the Account
database?
Each Account database entry stores the configuration
information for the equipment installed at that site. This
includes hardware configuration, schedules, Access Groups,
and all of the card database information. Essentially, this is all
the information necessary to replicate the site’s programming
on a new MLB, should the first system become damaged.
The first step is to create a new Account for the one MLB
included with your Access Starter Kit. To do so:
1. Fill in the fields of the dialog box.
The fields of the dialog box are described below:
Account Name - This is the name of the Account for the
MLB. You should provide the Account with an easy to
remember name that describes it properly. For example, if
this is Account for the main MLB of the system, you might
name the Account “Main.”
Software Setup 4-9
Account Number - This is the Account number associated
with the MLB Account. This number can be up to four digits. Also, this number must correspond to the first four digits of the Primary Subscriber Account Number assigned to
the MLB.
MLB Number - This is the number of the Account’s Main
Logic Board and will always be 1.
Host ID - This is the host ID number for this Account. The
host ID is used to fill in the appropriate field on the network/ID tab of the screen of the system wide options screen.
The Host ID is used to identify the correct Computer Host
that will be allowed to communicate with the MLB. When
this value is at its initial value of FFFFFFFFFFFF, any
Computer Host can communicate with the MLB.
It is essential that you remember the host ID number if it is
changed. Without the changed number, the computer will not
be able to communicate with the MLB.
Port # - Select the communications port of the computer to
which you have connected the PassPoint system. This can
be COM 1, 2, 3, or 4.
Modem? - If you are using a modem to connect to the system, select Yes. If not, select No.
If your installation uses a modem, you will need to fill in the
phone number at which your installed equipment can be
reached. You may also need to modify the modem set-up string
if your modem requires special operational functions.
4-10 Software Setup

Whenever you add a new system module to your system, you must inform the
system that the module is present. This is called enrolling. Refer to the section
of this chapter titled ‘Step 3 - Auto Enroll Modules’ for instructions on
performing this step.
STEP 4
Download
the Database
Once you have enrolled your modules, you must download the information to
the Main Logic Board, the main controller of the system. Refer to the section
of this chapter titled ‘Step 4 - Download the Database’ for instructions on
performing this step.
System Configuration 5-3
Step 1 - Run the Setup Wizard
The first step in configuring your system is to run the Setup
Wizard. The Wizard will help you to quickly set up your
system by allowing you to choose from a predefined set of
templates. Once you are done running the Wizard, your system
will automatically have two doors, as well as a default Access
Group, Day Template and schedule.
To use the Setup Wizard, simply follow the prompts on the
screen. The first screen of the Wizard should already be on
your screen:
This is the introductory screen. It explains a little of what the
Wizard will do for you.
5-4 System Configuration
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
1. Click Next.
The second Wizard screen appears:
This screen presents you with three different setup options.
The first option is the fullest option. It will configure your
system, enroll your system modules, and download these
settings to the database. Since you are setting up the system
for the first time, this is the setup option to choose.
2. Choose the first setup option, then click Next.
The next screen of the Wizard appears:
This screen contains a drop-down list box that allows you to
System Configuration 5-5
select a configuration template. By default, the system displays Starter Kit as the template to configure. If you are
only configuring a Starter Kit without an Expansion Kit or
Card Enrollment Kit, select this option. Otherwise, select
the appropriate option from the list. For the purposes of this
discussion, we will assume you are only configuring a
Starter Kit.
3. Select a template, then click Next.
If you have chosen the Starter Kit template, the final screen
of the Wizard appears:
Click Finish in this screen to finish your configuration. The
system will automatically create your two Access Points
(i.e. doors), and create a default Access Group, Day Template and schedule. You will be learning how to use each of
these items in later chapters of this guide.
Once the new account is configured, the system will prompt
you to connect to the MLB so that you can enroll your modules and download the new configuration.
5-6 System Configuration
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Step 2 - Establish Communications
After running the Setup Wizard, you must connect to the MLB.
Otherwise, PassPoint Express will not be able to communicate
with your PassPoint system.
Before setting up PassPoint Express, make sure you have
connected your PassPoint system to your computer via a direct
wire or modem connection. For a direct wire connection, a null
modem cable has been provided for connecting the RS-232
connector of your MLB to one of the COM ports of your
computer.
Power up the panel and wait for the keypad to display the
message “LOCAL ONLINE.” If you are using a modem at the
panel, press and release * # , then wait for the keypad to display
the message “REMOTE OFFLINE.”
The Connect to MLB dialog box appears immediately after
running the Setup Wizard:
This dialog box displays information about your MLB
connection parameters.
System Configuration 5-7
1. Click Connect.
After a few moments, the Connected field will change from
“False” to “True,” indicating that connection has been
established between your computer and your system’s
MLB.
If you have chosen a modem connection, the modem connected to the computer will dial the appropriate phone number in order to reach the “remote” MLB.
2. Click Close.
The MLB has now established a connection with the computer.
Step 3 - Auto Enroll Modules
After connecting to the MLB, the system will automatically
prompt you to enroll your modules. Whenever a new module is
added to the system, it must be enrolled. Enrolling simply
informs the system database that a new system module is
present.
When you enroll a system module, the system goes out and
searches for any modules connected to it that have not been
enrolled. Your kit template defines the hardware modules that
the system expects to find. It knows which modules are not
enrolled because these modules have serial numbers that
contain all zeros. For instance, look at the DCM you have just
added with the Wizard. It has a serial number that contains only
zeros. That means that it has not been enrolled, and that it is not
truly part of the system yet.
5-8 System Configuration
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
The Auto Enroll dialog box should already be on your screen,
and should look something like this:
As you can see, the dialog box contains instructions. First, the
system will acquire the serial number for the MLB. Then it will
scan for the DCM and enroll that serial number as well.
This is all done automatically once you click Start Scan. The
entire process will not take more than a few moments. The
system knows which modules to look for because of the Starter
Kit template you chose using the Setup Wizard. If you had
chosen a different template, say a Starter Kit with a Card
Expansion Kit, the system would also scan for a CPM.
1. Click the Start Scan button.
The system will go out and search for the modules. When it
finds them, it will blink the yellow service LED on each
module and present a screen message saying when each
module has been enrolled.
The system will stop scanning for modules. If you had been
enrolling more than one module, you would have had to
wait until the system told you that all the modules had been
enrolled.
System Configuration 5-9
The Print Log AutoEnroll dialog box contains a Print Log button that
automatically prints a “walk list” of all the modules waiting to
button
be enrolled.
You must power-up the modules in the order in which they
appear in the walk list. Be certain the subsequent modules are
powered-down when you begin the enrollment process. Once
you start the scan and properly enroll each module, you may
leave the module powered-up.
If the modules are powered-up before the enrollment process or
powered-up in the wrong order, they will be enrolled
incorrectly.
Never power-down the MLB during the enrollment process.
Step 4 - Download the Database
The last step to getting your system operational is to download
the database.
A copy of the PassPoint system database resides on the MLB.
Here is where all of your system configuration data is stored.
However, when you make changes on your computer, these
changes are not automatically made to the database on the
MLB. They are kept in your computer until you download
them to your MLB database. Any changes made on the
computer must be downloaded to the database in order for them
to take effect.
5-10 System Configuration
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
For example, you have already added a DCM to the system.
The DCM has one or two doors that you have configured.
This information is all displayed in the PassPoint Express
window. It resides in the computer database. But it does not
yet reside in the primary MLB database, because you have
not downloaded it yet.
To download the database, follow the procedure below:
1. From the Config menu, select Download.
The Download dialog box appears:
At the top of the dialog box is the account number you will
be downloading. There are also checkboxes in the dialog
box that tell you what information you will be downloading.
These checkboxes are automatically checked according to
the kit template you have selected.
System Configuration 5-11
2. Click Start.
The database download will proceed. The status bar at the
bottom of the dialog box will track the progress of the
download.
When download is complete, a dialog box will appear asking if you want to add cards.
Clicking Yes automatically launches the Card Wizard, a
PassPoint tool used for quickly adding cards to the system.
Adding cards to the system is covered fully in the next
chapter of this guide.

•
Use the Card Wizard to add a single card or a batch of
cards
•
Add a card to the database manually
•
Associate an action with a card
Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database 6-1
About the Cardholder Database
In order to keep track of all of its Cardholders, PassPoint uses a
database. The PassPoint Cardholder database contains the
names of all of the Cardholders of the premises. It associates
each Cardholder with his/her ID card’s code, as well as the
Cardholder’s Personal Identification Number (PIN). It is here,
in the Cardholder database, that you assign cards and PINs to
Cardholders.
Adding
Cardholders to
the system
Each time you want to issue a card, you are adding a Cardholder
to the database. In addition to the Cardholder’s name, ID card
code and PIN, you can enter such information as the
Cardholder’s Access Group assignments, the type of card he/
she is using, etc. Some of this information is mandatory to
enter. Other information is optional and is intended to make
locating and managing Cardholders easier.
For example, Cardholders can be assigned to up to five different Access Groups, but they must be assigned to at least
one. Otherwise, they will never be able to access any of your
premises’ Access Points.
Also, each Cardholder card can be assigned to invoke a specific
system action. The action can be set to initiate under a variety
of circumstances, such as an access grant, an access denial, or
an egress grant.
Cards can be assigned to Cardholders on a temporary basis,
allowing an expiration date or usage count to determine the
period throughout which the card will be valid.
6-2 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
For example, if you want to give a card to a visitor for only
one day, you can set the card to expire on the following day.
Or, if you want the card to only work for three entries into
your building, you can set the card to deny every entry
request after the third.
Where do you
start?
In Chapter 5, you configured your system and were prompted to
add cards. Essentially, adding cards is the last step in the setup
process. The system prompted you with the Card Wizard, as
shown below:
You can also call up the Card Wizard by clicking the Add Card
button on the button bar.
There are two main ways to enroll a card. One is to use the
Card Wizard. The other is to use the Add New Card function.
Both methods are explained below:
•
The Add New Card function
This function is chosen from the Config menu, and brings
up a dialog box that allows you to fill in the data for the card
manually.
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-3
Adding a card with the Add New Card function allows you
the greatest flexibility. The Card dialog box contains a
number of fields that can be edited and tailored for the
particular Cardholder.
The Add New Card function allows you to add only one
card. If you want to add more than one card, use the Card
Wizard.
•
The Card Wizard
The Card Wizard is a PassPoint tool that lets you enroll
cards quickly and easily. Using the Card Wizard, you can
enroll a single card, or you can enroll a batch of cards.
Adding a card using the Card Wizard only allows you to
add basic, default information to the card. It does not allow
you the flexibility that adding a card manually does.
However, once you have added a card using the Card
Wizard, you can go back and add more specific information
to that card.
Using the Card Wizard
The quickest and easiest way to add cards is to use the Card
Wizard. With the Card Wizard, you can add one card or a batch
of cards.
6-4 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
The Card Wizard appears automatically as the last step of the
configuration process:
The Card Wizard works in the same manner as the Setup
Wizard (shown earlier in this guide). To use the Card Wizard,
simply follow the instructions and answer the prompts.
The first step is to determine whether you want to add one card
or a batch of cards. Make your selection by choosing the
appropriate option:
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-5
Adding a single card
To enter a single card using the Card Wizard:
1. Select Add a single card in the Wizard and click Next.
The Wizard will ask you to enter a last name, first name,
and middle initial for the Cardholder (i.e., the person to
whom the card will be assigned):
2. Enter the appropriate name information into the fields
and click Next.
The system will prompt you to enter card information:

The default card setting is 34-bit Ademco proximity.
3. Enter the card information and click Next.
The Wizard will ask you to enter a PIN number for the card.
This is an optional step and only needs to be done if your
system uses keypad readers that enable a PIN to be used:
4. Enter a PIN number (if applicable) and click Next.
Next, the Wizard will ask you to choose Access Groups for
the card:
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-7
Each Cardholder can be assigned to up to five Access
Groups. To assign an Access Group to a user, simply check
the number of the group(s) in the boxes provided.
The ASK template includes one pre-set Access Group, called
EMPLOYEES. This enables you to choose an Access Group
without first having to create one. Later, you can modify or
delete the EMPLOYEES Access Group if you want.
In order for a Cardholder to have any access privileges at
all, he/she must be assigned to at least one Access Group
(unless the Cardholder has been granted executive privileges).
5. Select the Access Groups for the card, then click Next.
6-8 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
The last step is to enter a Vista user number (if applicable):
If the Cardholder has a corresponding Vista user number,
enter it in the field provided. If not, leave this field blank.
6. Click Finish.
The card will be added to the Cardholder database. From
here you can view, edit, or delete the card.
Adding a batch of cards
There are two ways to add a batch of cards: batch add and batch
swipe.
Batch Add
Batch adding allows you to quickly add a batch of cards at one
time. The Card Wizard will ask you to swipe (or manually
enter) the FIRST and LAST card in a batch. The cards must be
in numerical order for this method to work. Once this is done,
PassPoint will automatically enroll both the first and last card,
and every card in between.
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-9
Using this method does not allow you to enter Cardholder
names for the cards. This must be done separately for each
card, along with any other specific card information you want to
add.
Batch Swipe
The batch swipe method also allows you to add a batch of cards,
but this method requires you to swipe each card one by one at a
card enrollment reader.
Once the cards have been swiped, you then choose an Access
Group for the cards. Also, this method gives you an option of
entering a Cardholder name for each card you enroll.
Adding Cards Manually
If you don’t want to use the Card Wizard to add a Cardholder to
the database, you can simply add the card manually. Adding a
card manually allows you greater flexibility when adding cards,
since there are many more information fields available to you
that allow you to customize the card.
To manually add a card, follow the procedure below:
1. From the Config menu, select Cards>Add New Card or
click on the Add New Card speed button.
The Confirm dialog box appears:
6-10 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
2. To add cards manually, click on NO.
The Card Data dialog box appears:
Each tab allows you to add, edit or
view different data for the card.
Use the Card
Data dialog box
to add new
cards, edit card
data, delete
cards, and view
events by card.
The Card Data dialog box allows you to enter various types
of information about each card. Each tab of the box displays a different set of data. When creating a new card
record, you fill out these fields as applicable. Some of these
fields, like Last Name and Access Groups, are mandatory.
Others need not be filled, or already contain default data
that can be used. The fields that you choose to fill out for
each card will depend upon the Cardholder, the needs of the
installation, and other factors specific to the premises.
3. Fill out the fields of the first tab, Access.
The first tab of the Card Data dialog box is the only tab that
contains fields that must be filled in for the card to function.
Each of these tab fields is explained below:
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-11
Name (Last, First, MI) - Enter the name of the Cardholder
in these three fields. The name does not have to be unique,
and the manner in which the name is capitalized is not
important.
Card # - Enter the card number in this field. The card number entered will automatically compute the correct Card
Code, provided that the proper Card Technology has been
chosen.
Card Technology - In this field, select the proper card technology type that your system is using.
This field must be filled in correctly in order for the card to
function. By default, this field will read “34 Bit Ademco Prox
NCC,” which is the type of card shipped with the Access Starter
Kit.
Card Code - The card code is the actual code embedded in
the card. This is the code that the system reads when the
card is presented to a reader. This field cannot be edited. It
updates automatically according to the Card # entered and
the Card Technology chosen in the two previous fields.
PIN Code - In this field enter the 8-digit personal identification number (PIN) that you want to assign to the Cardholder.
Personal Identification Numbers can be 3 to 8 digits long.
A system option sets the PIN code length that is used
throughout the system. All PIN codes in the system must be
unique to a length of 1 digit less than the system PIN length.
In other words, if the system PIN code length is set at 4 digits, the fist 3 digits of ALL of the PIN codes in the system
MUST be unique. The last PIN digit is a “don't care” — any
6-12 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
PIN digit can be assigned in this position. However, never
define a PIN code that ends in “0.” This is because any PIN
code typed in at an Access Point that ends in “0” may be
interpreted as an access request under duress. It might be
wise to assign PIN codes that all end in the same digit — for
instance, “9.” This is because other special “last” digits
may be used by future versions of the system. Note that if a
card ID is not entered for this Cardholder (as might be the
case of PIN-only systems), data MUST be entered in this
field.
Access Groups - In the list boxes provided, select up to five
Access Groups for the card.
In order for a Cardholder to have any access privileges at
all, he/she must be assigned to at least one Access Group
(unless the Cardholder has been granted executive privileges).
Disabled - If you want to disable the privileges of the Cardholder, check this box. While disabled, all of the Cardholder’s access privileges will be revoked. You can
reinstate the Cardholder’s privileges at any time by
unchecking this box. While disabled, the card will remain
in the system database. When disabling a card, enter a date
that tells the system when to disable the card.
Use Expiration Date - If you want the card to become
invalid after a specific date, check this box and enter the
date in the field provided. Any attempted use of the card
after this date will be denied.
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-13
Use Expiration Count - If you want the card to become
invalid after a specific number of uses, check this box and
enter the number of valid uses in the field provided. For
example, enter “10” in this field if you want the card to
allow only ten access grants.
Denial CAL and Additional CAL - These fields are for
future use and are not active in this version of PassPoint
Express.
Vista User # - If there is a Vista control panel user number
associated with the Cardholder, enter the applicable number
in this field.
Executive Privileges - Check this box if you want to grant
the Cardholder executive privileges: full access to all of the
system Access Points. The Access Groups assigned to the
Cardholder will not be checked, so it is not strictly necessary to assign any Access Groups to the reader (although it
is highly advisable, since executive privileges are revoked
whenever the system is in Threat Level 5).
Note that enabling this field may have security ramifications that must be managed by the system’s administrator.
Also, if threat levels are used by the facility, any Executive
Privilege card should also be assigned at least one Access
Group. The Access Group assigned MUST be valid during
Threat Level 5 so the person will have an escape path from
the premises. Not providing such an escape path can have
life and safety implications. Executive Privilege cards also
retain all the access privileges of all Cardholder Authority
Levels.
Trace - Check this box if you want to log a trace event each
time the card/PIN code is used. A trace event appears in the
event log of the system and “traces” the movements and
6-14 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
actions of the Cardholder. Generally, this field will not be
used unless a card needs to be “watched” for some reason.
4. Fill in the fields of the remaining tabs, or click Save.
At any point after filling in the first tab fields, you can save
the card record and add the card to the database.
The remaining tabs of the dialog box allow you to enter
additional information for the Cardholder. For example, the
Personal tab allows you to add personal data about the
Cardholder, such as his/her address. The Summary tab
allows you to view summary information about the Cardholder at a glance.
Using the Action tab
You can configure the system to perform a specific action
whenever a specified event occurred with the card (such as an
access grant). To do so, use the fields of the Action tab:
Use the Action
tab to associate
an action with
the use of the
card.
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-15
Action Desired - This is the function you want to occur when
the card is used. Make your selection from the predefined list
of actions.
Specifier - This is the system item acted upon. For instance, if
you’ve chosen “Relay On” as your action, the specifier would
be the relay number.
Maximum Threat Level - This is the threat level at which the
action will be allowed to take place. If the system threat level
goes beyond the setting for the action, the action will not be
allowed to occur. The default value for this field is 0, meaning
normal.
Precedence Change - This field indicates how the precedence
level of the Specifier (above) will be affected when the action
takes place. You can choose None, Clear the precedence level
to 0, or Update to have the resource take on the precedence
level of the Cardholder
Invoke Action - In this field, select the specific system
occurrence upon which you want the action to occur. The
action will only take place when the card encounters the
situation specified in this field. For instance, you can select the
action to occur when an access request is granted. Or you can
select the action to occur when an access request is denied.
Perform Action at Uncommitted Readers - Check this box if
you want the action specified to occur when the card is used at
an uncommitted command reader.
6-16 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Using the Personal tab
You can enter personal information about a Cardholder into the
cardholder database. To do so, use the fields of the Personal
tab:
Last Name, First Name, M.I. - These fields are duplicates of
the fields found on the Access tab and are placed here to user
convenience.
Address Line 1, Address Line 2, City, State, Zip Code, and
Home Phone - The cardholder address and phone number can
be stored in these fields.
Acquire Image (Picture, Signature, and Fingerprint) -The
tabs in Acquire Image are used to store various bit-mapped
images for the cardholder. These images can be acquired by
using the Acquire Image button. The Acquire Image button will
allow the user to import an image from any TWAIN-compliant
image source, or import an image from a disk file. A disk file
image can be in any one of several graphic file formats
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-17
including Bitmap, JPED, GIF, and PCX. The Signature tab may
be used in conjunction with most Windows compatible writing
tablets to capture a cardholder signature.
Using the Employment tab
The cardholder database can also retain Cardholder Employee
Identification data. To enter Cardholder Employee
Identification data into the cardholder database, use the fields of
the Employment tab:
Employee ID Number - This field is used to record the
Cardholder Employee ID Number.
Date Of Hire - This field is used to record the date the
Cardholder was hired. Valid dates range between January 1,
1950 through December 31, 2094. Clicking the button to the
right of the Date Of Hire field will make a calendar be
displayed.
6-18 Managing Cards and the Cardholder Database
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Department, Position, and Work Phone - These fields are
used to record the department that the Cardholder works in, the
Cardholders position, and work phone number.
Using the Custom tab
The Custom tab contains user-configurable fields that can
include any pertinent information you wish. When you first
open the Custom tab, it’s essentially blank. This is because no
fields have been configured yet.
To configure fields for the Custom tab:
1. From the Config menu, select Cards>Custom Fields.
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-19
The Cardholder Custom Fields dialog box appears:
This dialog box contains various fields that let you customize the Custom tab.
2. Check off the boxes of the fields you want enabled.

PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
The system will automatically update the information for
the Custom tab. Next time you open the Card Data dialog
box, the Custom tab will reflect the data you just entered.
Using the Summary tab
The Summary tab displays a summary of all identification
information that has be recorded for a Cardholder. When
storing data for a new Cardholder, the pencil symbol to the left
of the Name denotes the Cardholder that the summary
information being displayed about. When defining a new
Cardholder, if you right-click on the pencil symbol, you will be
provided with a sub-menu asking if you wish to save or cancel
the cardholder information.
When the Cardholder summary is called during a Cards/Browse
database selection, the Cardholder screen takes on a slightly
difference appearance and functions differently. The screen, as
it appears when called during a Cards/Browse database
selection, is shown below:
Managing Cards and the Cardholder database 6-21
The functions obtainable when the screen has been called using
the Cards/Browse database selection are summarized below:
1. Right-clicking on a column head will sort the cards into
order for that column head. For example, right-clicking on
the column head for Name will put the cards into name
order. (Note: Changing the sort of this list also changes the
order of the card database as it pertains to the navigation
buttons at the top of the form).
2. If you right-click in the area containing the listing of cardholders, you will be provided with the options of resorting
the listing of cardholders into name, card code, pin code, ID
number, or card number order.
3. Once sorted according to the desired field, you may search
by beginning to type the desired information in the search
edit box above the listing of cardholders. As you type, the
information will be automatically completed for you as it
finds the nearest matching record. If you select a sort
according to the Card Code, and are on-line with the MLB,
you may swipe at any enrollment reader, once the input

focus (cursor) is in the search edit box. The card which is
swiped will be searched for in the card database. If it is
found, that card will be highlighted in the list. Otherwise,
you will see a message stating that the card was not found.
4. The arrow to the left of the name indicates which Cardholder that the summary is displaying information about.
5. All command buttons on the right side of the screen become
active. The buttons provide the following functions:
Print - This button prints the summary information about
the selected Cardholder.
Print All - This button prints the summary information
about all Cardholders.
Download - This button downloads any changes in the card
database to MLB. This button only needs to be used if the
card database was modified while off-line.
Upload - This button will clear the cardholder database
from the computer and upload the cardholder database from
the MLB into the computer.
CAUTION: This button should only be used in extreme
conditions and with extreme caution, since all non-access
related cardholder information (address, custom fields, etc.)
will be lost.
Clear MLB - This button will request that the MLB default
it’s copy of the card database and then ask you to re-create
all of the card records on the MLB.
CAUTION: This button should only be used in extreme
conditions as you are attempting to restore the functionality of a
defaulted MLB.

Card technology options (Card Tech tab)
In order for PassPoint to communicate properly with your door
control hardware (i.e., card readers), it must be informed of certain parameters.
For example, the system must know how many bits of information the cards you are using contain. The system also needs to
be given “recognizer” information so that it can decipher the
data on ID cards and try to recognize them.
Card recognizer information
These fields display information about the access card formats
that are currently supported by your access system. These
fields generally need not be changed.
Setting System-Wide Options 7-7
Card lengths
Weigand Card Bits - This is the number of bits that are used
by Weigand card readers in the PassPoint system. Setting this
field to 255 automatically allows the system to use any card
which has a length greater than 26 bits. Note that if a varying
card length (the setting of 255) is not required, you should set
this field to the exact card length required by your installation.
Proximity Card Bits - This is the number of bits that are used
by Proximity card readers in the PassPoint system. Setting this
field to 255 automatically allows the system to use any card
which has a length greater than 26 bits. Note that if a varying
card length (the setting of 255) is not required, you should set
this field to the exact card length required by your installation.
Magnetic Stripe Card Bits - This is the number of bits that are
used by Magnetic Stripe card readers in the PassPoint system.
Setting this field to 255 automatically allows the system to use
any card with a length greater than 26 bits. Note that if a
varying card length (the setting of 255) is not required, you
should set this field to the exact card length required by your
installation. Setting this length to 254 will strip off the parity
bits from each American Banking Association (ABA) character
and simplify identification of raw card data.
Keypad PIN Length - This field can be set from three Personal
Identification Number (PIN) digits to eight digits. This means
that if you use 4 PIN digits, the first THREE digits of every PIN
number assigned in the system MUST be unique. Also, the last
digit assigned in the PIN numbers MUST NOT be ZERO. PIN
numbers ending in zero are assumed to be duress PINs by the
system.

PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Skeleton codes (Skeletons tab)
This screen allows the installer to edit the system's Skeleton
Cards and Skeleton PINs:
Skeleton codes are used to unlock Access Points during
Reduced Capability Mode (RCM) operation. They are used
only when the communications link between the MLB and its
DCM has been severed. Under these conditions, the DCM uses
these skeleton codes as a very small card database. This database is used only when the communication link is down. When
the communication link is restored, the skeleton code database
is no longer utilized. RCM operation will also be effect when
the system is downloading if the download takes more than
approximately 3.5 minutes, or the download is for System,
MLB, or ALL.
Skeleton codes come in two types: skeleton cards and skeleton
PINs. The one that you choose depends on the type of entry
readers your system uses. If your installation uses combination
readers, and you have set them to grant access only after both a
card swipe and PIN entry, only the card swipe will be read
while the system is in RCM.
Setting System-Wide Options 7-9
You can have up to eight skeleton cards and eight skeleton
PINs.
Assigning skeleton card codes
Skeleton card codes work somewhat differently from skeleton
PIN codes. There are eight skeleton card codes, but since skeleton card masks can be set up as filters, each skeleton card
description can stand-in for many cards.
Setting up a
skeleton card to
filter acceptable
cards
When you want a skeleton card to filter acceptable cards, imagine that the Card Data Mask is a strainer (the filter) and that the
Resulting Card Code is a final test to see what made it through
the strainer. The operations that occur on the card number
require you to understand hexadecimal and binary arithmetic,
and Boolean AND operations.
A 1 in a bit position of the data mask means that bit position of
the card code and card read must be identical.
When a card is read by the access point in RCM, it will be
passed through the Card Data Mask filter. The resulting value
will be checked against the Resulting Card Code. An EXACT
match of the Resulting Card Code will be accepted by the
access point.
As an example, let’s assume that we want all cards with the
embedded Facility Code of 41 (decimal) to pass through access
points. Additionally, in the following examples, assume that the
card number is 1827 (decimal). The cards used in your facility
are 26-bit cards in this example. For this card format, the Facility Code is encoded into eight bits, starting with the 25th bit of a
26-bit card....

Setting System-Wide Options 7-11
In the next examples (A and B), let’s assume that we are using
the standard ADEMCO format of 34 bits. The standard
Ademco format consists of three fields as described below:
Facility Code: An eight bit binary value that is generally the
same for all cards at a particular facility. Using this field in this
way, there can be a card number one at company A, as well as a
card number one at company B, yet neither card will work at the
other's facility.
RCM Code: A four bit field that can be used to group cards with
identical patterns in this field. These different groups can then
be permitted to perform specific functions. This field has not
yet been implemented within the framework of the system.
Card Number: A twenty bit value used to indicate the card
number of the card being presented.
There are also parity bits (one at the beginning and one at the
end of the card data stream). These are used to authenticate the
validity of the card data stream when it is transmitted from the
reader to the controller. For RCM Skeleton operations, the parity bits can be ignored dependent upon the card set in use.
Example A represents a card data stream from an ADEMCO
card that has a Facility Code of 8, an RCM code of 4, and a
card number of 1827(Decimal [723 Hexadecimal]). The total
length of the Card Data Stream is 34 bits. If we wanted to use
just the facility code to grant access in RCM, we need to generate a mask that has the bits that represent the facility code set to
a 1, and all others set to a 0. The Data Mask will look like
Example B.

unsuccessful outgoing call attempts.
Login/Host Timeout - This is the amount of time (in minutes)
that may expire after making a dial-in or dial-out connection. It
is also the amount of time that, when expired, will force a renegotiation of a connection with a Computer Host System (in a
future version of the product). When using a remote
connection, if this timeout time passes without someone
logging in, the system will terminate the connection by hanging
up. Setting this field to 0 disables this timeout.

Enforce Call-Back - Setting this option to (Y)es forces the
PassPoint system to hang up on a call-in and automatically call
back a predetermined phone number. This allows for a
higher-security system since any dial-in that is answered by the
PassPoint will terminate and the system will initiate a call to a
known-safe phone number.
Phone book
The Phone Book is used to identify eight possible phone
numbers through which the PassPoint system can contact a
remote computer. These numbers do not need to be filled in if
the only computer used to manage the system is directly
connected to the system.
The usage settings specify the number that is used under a
certain circumstance. One number should be selected to be
used as call-back if the Enforce Call-Back option is selected.
This is the number that the PassPoint system will call after a
call-in is received.
All other numbers are used to dial a particular computer upon
the occurrence of an event of a particular priority threshold.
This allows the system to call different hosts to handle different
types of events.

Priority options (Priorities tab)
This screen displays the settings for the priority of all of the
events that a PassPoint system can generate. The priority
settings range from None through Priority Level 5. Events that
have been set to a priority level of None will not be logged to
event history. Priority Level 1 events are the lowest priority
events that can be logged. Priority Level 5 events are the
highest priority events that are logged. Any event that has been
set to a Priority Level of None cannot be used as the trigger for
an Event-Action relationship since the event is not being
logged. Note that when transferring events to the host, the field
panel MLB will transmit the oldest, highest priority events in
the Event Log first, working down to lowest priority, most
recent events.
You should keep in mind that these priority settings can affect
remote connections. Altering the event priorities can cause
outgoing calls to the host to be made, and can prevent events
from being logged. Additionally, many events that have a fault/
restoral characteristic only show up once in the list. Changing
the priority for one changes the priority for both (i.e., Access
Point Door Open and Alarm Restore).

When the door to the panel is removed, the inside of the cabinet
looks like this:
Power Supply
DEK Panel with
DCM and power
supply.
Choosing a
mounting area
Door Control
Module
When selecting a mounting area for the panel, choose a clean,
dry place not readily accessible to the general public but
convenient enough so that a technician can get at the panel
easily. The panel should be mounted on a sturdy wall using
fasteners or anchors (not supplied in your kit).
1. Position the cabinet on the wall and use the holes in the
back of the cabinet to mark your four mounting holes.
2. Using four anchors or fasteners, mount the cabinet to
the wall.
When mounting the cabinet, be very careful not to jar the
system’s PC boards.
8-4 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Step 2 - Connect the DCM
Connecting the DCM actually involves the following steps:
•
Connecting the DCM to the power supply and system’s
MLB
•
Connecting the power transformer
•
Connecting card readers
•
Connecting DSM and RTE devices
•
Connecting optional 7 amphere-hour battery
When making these connections, refer to Appendix A, Wiring
Considerations, for additional diagrams and system ratings.
Connecting the
DCM to the MLB
and power supply
1. Connect the local power jumper between power supply
connector J5 and DCM connector J1.
2. Connect two network connection leads between the
MLB and DCM.
Connect one lead between terminal 1 of the DCM and terminal 16 of the MLB.
Connect the other lead between terminal 2 of the DCM and
terminal 15 of the MLB.
Use twisted pair wiring for these connections. Also, use proper
termination for the modules. Refer to Appendix A for details.
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-5
Connecting the
power transformer
The DEK comes with a wall pack power transformer that needs
to be wired to the DCM. To do so:

Step 3 - Activate the system
Once the DCM has been connected and all door control
hardware has been mounted and wired to the system, you can
activate the system. To do so, plug the power transformer into a
suitable wall outlet. The wall outlet must be a 24-hour (nonswitched) power source.
Step 4 - Add and set up the DCM
Now that the DEK is powered up, you must add the new DCM
to your existing installation, and set up your doors. To do this,
you will be using the Setup Wizard described in Section One of
this guide.
To add and set up the new DCM, follow the procedure below:
1. From the Config menu, select Hardware.
The Installer Configuration dialog box appears:
Use the Installer
Configuration dialog
box to view/modify
system components
and to set various
system options.
8-8 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
The Installer Configuration dialog box lists all of the components of the system. Here is where you add system modules such as DCMs. This dialog box is also used to set
various system options, such as skeleton codes and modem
settings.
Once you make changes in this screen, the changes must be
downloaded to the system database in order for them to take
effect.
2. Right-click on the MLB once.
Right-click here one
time to see a menu of
options.
This will bring up a menu of options.
3. From the menu, select Add DCM.
The Setup Wizard appears:
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-9
4. Click Next to continue.
Clicking Next always brings you to the next screen of the
Wizard:
5. Specify how many Access Points you want to configure.
The Wizard gives you three options:
•
One Entrance Point
•
Two Entrance Points
•
One Entrance/Exit Point
The option you select will depend upon the needs of your
installation. For the sake of this procedure, we will assume
that we are only configuring one entry point. The procedure
for configuring two Access Points is essentially the same.
When you have made your selection, click Next to continue.
8-10 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
6. Enter the name of the Access Point.
The name should be something descriptive of the door, e.g.
“Front Door” or “Warehouse Door.”
Once you have entered a name for the Access Point(s), click
Next to continue.
7. Choose a direction for the Access Point.
You can choose to make the Access Point either an entry
point or an exit point:
After choosing a direction, click Next.
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-11
8. Choose whether or not you want Door Status Monitoring (DSM) for the Access Point.
DSM is a function that allows the system to monitor how
long a door is kept open, and sounds an alarm if that amount
of time is violated.
If you select to use DSM for a door (as shown in this example), the system will then ask you if you want to set a prealarm trigger for the door. The pre-alarm trigger is a warning signal that sounds before the door goes into alarm. It is
used to warn individuals that the door will go into alarm if
they do not close it immediately.
When you have made your DSM selections, click Next to
continue.
8-12 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
9. Choose whether or not you want Request-to-Exit (RTE)
for the Access Point(s).
An RTE zone is a device connected to the door that requires
system verification before allowing a Cardholder to exit
through the door. An RTE device may be a button for the
Cardholder to push, or it may be a motion detector that
detects when a person is coming toward the door to exit.
When the device is pushed (in the case of the button) or
senses a person (in the case of the motion detector), the system will unlock the door and allow the person to exit.
When you have made your RTE selection, click Next to
continue.
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-13
The Wizard will present you with a summary screen of your
Access Point configuration choices:
10. Click Finish to exit out of the Wizard and save your
changes.
The tree in the Installer Configuration dialog box will now
show your new DCM, along with any Access Points you
configured using the Setup Wizard:
Once you finish with the Wizard,
your DCM and Access Points
appear in the tree.
Although you have configured your DCM and Access Points,
you must still enroll the DCM so that the system recognizes it
and all its configuration settings. Enrolling the DCM is covered
in the next step.
8-14 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Step 5 - Auto enroll the DCM
Whenever a new module is added to the system, it must be
enrolled. Enrolling simply informs the system database that a
new system module is present.
When you enroll a system module, the system goes out and
searches for any modules connected to it that have not been
enrolled. It knows which modules are not enrolled because
these modules have serial numbers that contain only zeros. For
instance, look at the DCM you have just added with the Wizard.
It has a serial number that contains only zeros. That means it
has not been enrolled, and is not truly part of the system yet.
To enroll the DCM you just configured, follow the procedure
below:
1. Click the Auto Enroll button on the Installer Configuration dialog box.
Refer to the diagram below for the location of the Auto
Enroll button:
Auto Enroll
button
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-15
Clicking this button brings up the Auto Enroll dialog box,
shown below:
The enrollment process is all done automatically once you
click Start Scan. The entire process will not take more than
a few moments.
1. Click the Start Scan button.
The system will go out and search for the DCM. When it
finds it, it will blink the yellow service LED on the DCM
and display a message saying when the DCM has been
enrolled.
The system will stop scanning for modules. If you had been
enrolling more than one module, you would have had to
wait until the system told you that all the modules had been
enrolled.
Never power-down the MLB during this process.
Step 6 - Download the database
The last step to getting your DEK operational is to download
the database.
8-16 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Remember, the PassPoint system database resides on the MLB.
Here is where all of your system configuration data is stored.
However, when you make changes on your computer, these
changes are not automatically made to the database on the
MLB. They are kept in a temporary storage area on your
computer until you download them to your MLB database. Any
changes made on the computer must be downloaded to the
database in order for them to take effect.
1. Close the Installer Configuration dialog box.
The system will automatically ask you if you want to download the database:
2. Click Yes.
The Download dialog box appears:
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-17
At the top of the dialog box is the Account number you will
be downloading. There are also checkboxes in the dialog
box that tell you what information you will be downloading.
These checkboxes will be checked according to the system
options you have changed. If there are specific options you
want to download that have not been selected automatically,
you can select them now by clicking in the applicable
checkboxes.
3. Click Start.
The database download will proceed. The status bar at the
bottom of the dialog box will track the progress of the
download.
Configuring the DCM
If you at any time you want to change the default settings of
the DCM provided by the template, or you want to expand
on these settings, PassPoint provides a list of function for
you to choose from. Using these functions, you can configure your system DCMs in various ways.
DCMs are configured using the DCM Setup dialog box. To
reach this dialog box:
1. From the Config Menu, select Hardware.
The Installation Configuration dialog box appears.
2. Right-click on the DCM once.
This will bring up a menu of option.
3. From the menu, select Properties.
8-18 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
The DCM Setup dialog box appears:
Using the DCM
Setup dialog box
As you can see, the dialog box contains nine tabs. Each of these
nine tabs contain fields that describe/control various functions
and settings of the DCM. Each of the tabs and their related
fields are described below.
DCM System tab
Serial Number - You can enter the serial number for this
module if you know it or leave this field set to 0000-0000-0000
to auto enroll the serial number. The serial number must be
unique.
Module AC Loss Monitor (Monitor AC Power Flag?) - When
this field is enabled, the module will notify the system when it
experiences an AC loss condition. An event will be logged
when the AC power is lost or restored. This feature should only
be enabled on one of the modules powered by the particular
power supply.
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-19
Module Low Battery Monitor (Monitor Low Battery Flag?) When this field is enabled, the module will notify the system
when it experiences a low battery condition. An event will be
logged when the low battery condition is detected and/or
restored. This feature should only be enabled on one of the
modules powered by the particular power supply.
Access Point A/B tabs
Access point configuration is the specification of the entry and
exit controlling devices which are installed at the access point:
Access point configuration also includes information
concerning the door locking device and describes the typical
timing parameters that govern passage through the access point
(such as how long the lock is to operate, how long the door may
remain open, etc.). Access point configuration also consists of
8-20 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
the access point's name and any other attributes that may need
to be specified in order for the access point to operate properly.
From this tab of the DCM Setup screen, three groups of
attributes (Entry, Exit, and Door Control) are displayed. On
this screen, these attributes CAN NOT be edited. This screen
acts as a summary screen. Double-click within one of the
groups or click on the arrow button to the right of the group
name in order to open up a screen that will allow you to modify
the displayed attributes.
Note that if the Global # for the Access Point is set to 0, the
following fields will not be displayed since they do not pertain
to an unused Access Point.
Global Access Point Number - This field selects the number
of this resource from the total number of resources available.
Use this drop-down list to select from the allowable values.
The system will automatically scroll through only the available
numbers.
Name - Use this textual field to enter a name for the Access
Point you are defining.
Duress Mode - The PassPoint system provides for special cases
of when an individual is being forced to pass through an Access
Point. The individual can indicate to the system that they are
under duress to enter or exit the premises. This is done by
substituting a “0” for their last PIN digit.
For example, if the individual's PIN is “1234,” the duress PIN
would be “1230.” “0” should be easy to remember since it is
similar to dialing a telephone operator. When a duress is
initiated, a special message is placed in the event log of the
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-21
PassPoint system. The system may also initiate a call to a
security central station.
The system provides three modes of duress operation - Normal,
Soft, and Hard. If the duress mode is set to Soft, entry or egress
will be granted regardless of the access privileges of the
individual. If the individual normally would not be allowed to
pass, the duress would override, and allow the person to pass.
In Normal duress mode, the individual will only be allowed to
pass if their access privileges would normally allow them to
pass. In Hard duress mode, access will always be denied. Note
that the use of Hard duress may endanger the safety of people
and should only be used in the most severe security
applications. Use this drop-down list to select the desired mode
of operation.
Entry Attributes
This group displays a summary of all the properties that
describe the mode of entry control for this Access Point. To edit
any of these settings, position the cursor on the small arrow
button to the right of Entry Attributes and left-click the mouse
or double click the mouse in the Entry Attributes area. A menu
will be displayed where the information can be edited.
Partition number and name - Two pieces of access point
configuration data that describe the access area or partition that
an individual enters when they are allowed entry access through
the access point.
Entry Reader - An input device installed on the entry side of
an access point door. At this device, individuals are required to
identify themselves to the PassPoint system so that their access
privileges may be examined in order to determine if they should
be allowed to pass into the protected area. The term is entry
8-22 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
reader because in most cases, the device will be a card reader at
which a Cardholder must present their ID card. However, the
device may be a keypad at which the individual must enter their
assigned Personal Identification Number (PIN code) in order to
identify him/herself. In some cases, where higher security is
required, the entry reader may be a combinational unit which
acts as both a keypad and a card reader.
In the PassPoint system, access points are configured on Door
Control Modules (DCMs). Since there are two reader input
connections on each DCM, the reader that is being used as the
entry control reader for the access point must be specified.
Note that if the installer uses a preset access point
configuration, the reader input (READER A or READER B RDRA or RDRB) is automatically assigned and does not need
to be edited.
Entry Reader Type - This access point configuration option
allows the selection of the reader type. There are many types of
card readers and keypads available. The selections in this field
include keypads, different types of ID card readers (Wiegand,
Proximity, or Magnetic Stripe), and combinational units that
consist of both a card reader and a keypad. Use this drop-down
list to select the appropriate Reader Type.
Entry Reader Interface - All the supported readers which can
be used by the system can be categorized by two electrical
interface styles. The first is Data1/Data0 (Wiegand style) and
the second is Clock & Data. The installer must make the
appropriate selection. For most readers other than Magnetic
stripe card readers, the appropriate selection will usually be
Data1/Data0. This information will be specified by the wiring
labels on the card reader or keypad device. Select the
appropriate Reader Interface method.
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-23
Pin Retry Lockout - This is a feature that disables the keypad
of an entry reader for a specified amount of time after a
specified number of improper PIN entries. Pin retry lockout
protects the premises from intruders who tamper with a keypad
controlled access point because it slows down the process of
trying all possible code combinations. The system logs when
Pin Retry Lockout is initiated at an Access Point. To enable
this feature select Yes.
The amount of time for Pin Retry Lockout is set in the
Administration dialog box. To reach this dialog box, select
Admin from the Config menu.
Exit Attributes
This group displays a summary of all the properties that
describe the mode of exit control for this Access Point. To edit
any of these settings, position the cursor on the small arrow
button to the right of Exit Attributes and left-click the mouse or
double click the mouse in the Exit Attributes area. A menu will
be displayed where the information can be edited.
Partition number and name - Two pieces of access point
configuration data which describe the access area or partition
that an individual exits to when the person is allowed to exit
through the access point. If the access point exits out of all
controlled areas, this field should be set to zero, indicating an
“off premises” condition. Use this drop-down list to select the
appropriate Exit to Partition.
Exit Reader - An exit reader is an input device that is installed
on the exit side of an access point door. At this device, an
individual is required to identify him/herself to the system so
that their access privileges may be examined in order to
8-24 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
determine if they should be allowed to pass out of the protected
area.
In the PassPoint system, access points can be configured on
Door Control Modules (DCMs). Since there are two reader
input connections on the DCM, the one that is being used as the
exit control reader for the access point must be specified. Note
that if the installer uses a preset access point configuration, the
reader input (READER A or READER B - RDRA or RDRB) is
automatically assigned, and does not need to be edited.
Exit Reader Type - There are many types of card readers and
keypads available. This access point configuration option
allows the selection of the exit reader type. Use this drop-down
list to select the appropriate Reader Type.
Exit Reader Interface - All the supported readers which can
be used by the system can be categorized by two electrical
interface styles. The first is Data1/Data0 (Wiegand style) and
the second is Clock & Data. The installer must make the
appropriate selection. For most readers other than Magnetic
stripe card readers, the appropriate selection will usually be
Data1/Data0. This information will be specified by the wiring
labels on the card reader or keypad device. Select the
appropriate Reader Interface method.
Request To Exit (RTE) Zone - In installations where an exit
reader is not being employed, it may still be necessary for the
system to monitor egresses through an access point. This is
usually the case when a Door Status Monitor (DSM) contact (or
Door Position Sensor) is used and the door may be used by
people exiting though the door by manually opening the door.
When a DSM is used, if the PassPoint system is not expecting
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-25
the door to open from the inside when someone leaves, a
Request to Exit (RTE or REX) device must be installed.
The RTE device may be a pushbutton on the wall on the
protected side of the door or a limited view passive infrared
motion detector which is focused on the area immediately in
front of the door on the protected side. In either case, the RTE
device is wired to an input zone on the Door Control Module.
When a person requests exit through the access point, the RTE
zone is faulted by pressing the button or tripping the motion
detector. The PassPoint system then understands that a person
wants to exit through the door. The PassPoint system unlatches
the door locking device, allowing the person to exit through the
door. Since the PassPoint system knows that the door was
supposed to open, it will automatically disregard the detection
of a door open condition.
Because the DCM provides four input zones (ZONE A thru
ZONE D - ZONEA thru ZONED), this field is used to indicate
the zone that will be used for this purpose. Note that if the
installer chooses a preset access point configuration, this field is
automatically filled in by the PassPoint System and cannot be
edited.
RTE Zone Configuration - This setting allows a normally
open, normally closed, or end of line supervised zone
configuration to be set for the RTE device. This setting must
correspond with the contact configuration of the RTE device.
Additionally, a choice is provided that allows a relay to be
energized on RTE.
Door Control Attributes
This group displays a summary of all the properties that
describe the mode of door control for this Access Point. To edit
8-26 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
any of these settings, position the cursor on the small arrow
button to the right of Door Control Attributes and left-click the
mouse or double click the mouse in the Door Control Attributes
area. A menu will be displayed where the information can be
edited.
Relay - The Door Control Relay is an electronic switch which
resides on the DCM and is used to control the flow of electricity
to the door locking mechanism. The Door Control Relay is a
“form C” dry contact output, which means that it is used to
switch a voltage on or off and may be connected as a normally
open or a normally closed circuit.
Magnetic door locks are usually connected to the normally
closed side of the relay's connections since magnetic locks must
be energized in order to hold the door closed. Electronic door
strikes are usually connected to the normally open side of the
relay's connections, since door strikes usually need to be
energized in order to allow the door to open. Note that door
strikes are available in Fail Safe (when power is removed, the
door may open) or Fail Secure (the door is latched when power
is removed).
Since the locking mechanisms may have implications of life
safety, note that when a door strike is selected for an
application, local fire codes may govern the type and
configuration of the locking device chosen, and the appropriate
side of the relay's contacts that must be used. Since the DCM
contains two relay outputs (RELAY A or RELAY B - RLYA or
RLYB), this field allows the selection of which of the two
relays will be used to control this access point's door. If the
installer has chosen a preset access point configuration, the
selection of the door control relay is filled in automatically and
cannot be edited.
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-27
Supervise Relay Voltage - In situations where a foreign power
supply is employed to provide power to the door's locking
mechanism, the installer may choose to have the PassPoint
system monitor the power supply. This allows the system to
notify an administrator when a power supply that is securing a
door has failed. Checking this field enables this feature.
If the installer is using the Ademco Access Control's Power
Supply, it may not be necessary to enable this feature since the
output of the power supply may already be supervised by the
DCM.
Relay Unlock Time - This is the amount of time, in seconds,
during which the Door Control Relay will be energized,
allowing the door to open. The door locking device should be
wired appropriately to the normally open or normally closed
circuit side of the door control relay so that during this time the
door may be opened.
Door Upon RCM - In the rare event of a Door Control Module
loosing contact with the rest of the system, it may be desired
that a door which has been commanded open (manually or by a
timed schedule) be relatched automatically. This setting allows
a setting of “latch,” which may be used for exterior door for
added security, “unlatch,” which may be used for interior doors
which would pose a nuisance if they were not able to operate
properly, or “leave alone,” which leaves the door as-is. In most
cases, the “latch” setting will be appropriate. This will provide
the best security, and individuals who have their cards (or
codes) will still be able to pass through the access point if the
appropriate Reduced Capability Mode settings have been
configured.
8-28 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Door Status Monitor Zone - This setting allows the selection
of a Door Status Monitor Zone. This input zone on the DCM
can be wired to a door contact so that the PassPoint system can
determine if an intruder has forced the door open when it should
have been closed. This zone can also be used to determine if a
door was opened rightfully but was not closed within a
specified amount of time.
Since the DCM provides four input zones (ZONE A thru ZONE
D - ZONEA thru ZONED), this field is used to indicate the
zone that will be used for this purpose. If the installer chooses a
preset access point configuration, this field is automatically
filled in by the PassPoint System and cannot be edited. Also, if
the door can be manually opened from the inside when people
leave, it is necessary to install a Request to Exit device so that
egresses do not cause Door Forced Open alarms.
Zone Time Open - This is the amount of time, in seconds, that
the door is allowed to remain open when access or egress is
granted through the access point. If the door remains open
longer than the specified time, a Door Open Timeout alarm is
generated.
Zone Configuration - This setting allows a normally open,
normally closed, or end of line supervised zone configuration to
be set for the DSM device. This setting must correspond with
the contact configuration of the DSM device.
Door Relatch - When a DSM zone is installed at the door, it is
possible for the PassPoint system to determine that the door has
closed before the amount of time that it was to remain
unlatched. In this case, if the door has not been relatched when
it closes, the PassPoint system will automatically relatch the
door, preventing a late-comer from pushing an unlatched door
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-29
open. This feature is also called “Anti-Piggybacking.” Most
often this option is set to relatch when the door is detected as
having closed. The “Upon Door Close” setting should be
selected when an electromagnetic door lock is used. The “Upon
Door Open” setting can be used at access points which are
latched by electronic door strikes.
Pre-Alarm Trigger - If a door which employs a DSM is held
open longer than the specified Door Open Time, the event
history will log a Door Open Timeout alarm. In order to
prevent inadvertent Door Open Timeout alarms, a sounder or
bell may be installed near the access point. This sounder can be
used to warn someone who is holding a door open that an alarm
condition is imminent. This sounder is called a pre-alarm
warning device.
When the access point is configured with a pre-alarm Device, if
the door is still open a preset amount of time before the Door
Open Alarm would occur, the pre-alarm device is energized,
giving an audible (or even visible) warning to the person
holding the door. Pre-alarm warning devices are usually
piezoelectric sounders. P/A devices are driven by one of the
two available trigger outputs of the DCM. Each DCM trigger
output is an open-collector configured driver, which has a series
resistance of 680 Ohms. When energized, trigger outputs will
sink current. If a 12 Volt piezo sounder is used, its positive
connection should be wired to a source of 12 Volts (with a
ground common to the PassPoint system’s ground) and its
negative connection should be connected to the appropriate
trigger output of the DCM. When the P/A warning is in effect,
the sounder is energized. Since there are two trigger outputs on
each DCM, the appropriate one must be chosen (TRIGGER A
or TRIGGER B - TRIGA or TRIGB). Since pre-alarm devices
8-30 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
are optional, they are never pre-assigned by the PassPoint
system and must be selected by the installer.
Pre-Alarm Time - This is the amount of time, in seconds,
before the invocation of an access point Door Open alarm at
which the pre-alarm device will be energized. For example, if
the door is set to be allowed to remain open for 30 seconds, an
appropriate pre-alarm time would be 10 seconds, giving 10
seconds of warning to someone who is holding the door open.
If the door is still open at the end of the 30 seconds, a Door
Open Timeout Alarm Event will occur. The pre-alarm device
will remain energized (depending upon its mode) until the door
is closed, clearing the Door Open Timeout Alarm.
Trigger Mode - The pre-alarm trigger output mode can be set
to “Controlled,” “One-Shot,” or “Repeating.” A Controlled
pre-alarm trigger will become energized and stay energized
until the door is closed. A One-Shot pre-alarm trigger will
energize once for the specified On Time, then shut off. A
Repeating pre-alarm trigger output will cycle on and off for the
specified amount of On Time, Off Time, and for the specified
number of Repeat Counts. If the Repeat Count is set to zero,
the cycling will continue until the door is closed. Note that

select from four different options:
•
8-38 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
No Alarm-Monitored: This allows the zone to be
seen by the system and to trap faults/restores. No
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Alarm zones are used primarily by event/action relations and system scripts.
•
Perimeter: Faults/Restores will always be recognized on this zone, but can only generate an alarm
when the burglary system is armed AWAY or
STAY. A perimeter zone will restore when the zone
returns to normal (zone will latch if system armed).
•
Interior: Faults/Restores will always be recognized
on this zone, but can only generate an alarm when
the burglary system is armed AWAY. All Interior
zones will be temporarily ignored for the first 2 minutes after arming AWAY. An Interior zone will
restore once the zone returns to normal (zone will
latch if system armed).

Skeleton RCM tab
In the rare event of a DCM becoming “disconnected” from the
rest of the PassPoint system, the DCM can be told how to act
while it is out of contact. When it is “out of contact,” the DCM
is placed in Reduced Capability Mode (RCM). Note that
security is not compromised if RCM mode is configured
properly. First, each access point can be selected individually
to latch, unlatch, or remain as-is when RCM mode is invoked.
This allows perimeter doors to be secured while interior or
safety zones can be free to open. Cards and PINs can still be
used at the card readers and keypads of the DCM in RCM
mode. In most cases, skeleton cards or skeleton PINs can be
configured which can be used to unlatch the door for a single
cycle or for extended periods of time. Skeleton cards or PINs
can also be used to relatch the door. Skeleton cards are
configured by describing the patterns present in the card’s
electronic signature. Skeleton PINs are configured by
allocating special PIN codes that invoke these features.
8-40 Adding a Door Expansion Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
For each skeleton card/PIN code, select its function. Each card/
PIN can have one of three functions:
•
Grant access
•
Unlatch Indefinitely
•
Latch Indefinitely
Grant Access will act similarly to a normal access cycle.
Unlatch Indefinitely unlatches the door until commanded
otherwise. Latch Indefinitely will latch the door until
commanded otherwise. The latch and unlatch functionality can
be used by a system administrator who, when the system fails,
intends to allow free passage throughout the day until either the
end of business, when the latch card (or PIN) is used, or until
the system is returned to service.
The type of skeleton code you can enter for an access point
depends upon the type of reader you’ve configured for it. If the
access point has only a card reader, for example, you will only
be able to configure skeleton cards, not PIN. If you have a
Adding a Door Expansion Kit 8-41
combination unit at the access point, you can configure both
type of skeleton codes.
Important: In this area you are only configuring the function
for the skeleton code. The actual card/PIN numbers for
skeleton codes are assigned in another area of the program,
“System-wide Options,” discussed previously.
Grant PIN of Correct Length? - Enabling this function
disables the use of skeleton PINs. The PIN can only be used at
access points that use a keypad for access or egress. Turning on
this feature reverts the system to a very low security access
point. All that is necessary to gain passage is to enter the
correct number of PIN digits. The actual digits that are used
does not matter. Any sequence of digits of the correct length
will suffice.

Adding a Card
Enrollment Kit
Adding a Card Enrollment Kit
Adding a Card Enrollment Kit (CEK) allows you to quickly add
ID cards to your system. Cards are enrolled into the system by
swiping them at a desktop card enrollment station.
In this chapter you will learn how to:
•
Wire all of the components of the CEK
•
Activate and set up the CEK
•
Enroll the CEK into an existing PassPoint system
Adding a Card Enrollment Kit 9-1
Understanding Your Card Enrollment Kit
The PassPoint Card Enrollment Kit (CEK) is a self-contained
system module that can be added to an existing PassPoint
installation in order to make the management of cards
(including card enrollment) as simple as possible. Essentially,
the CEK consists of a desktop enrollment reader (shown
below). System administrators can swipe ID cards at this reader
to quickly enroll them in the system.
The CEK connects to the PassPoint system like any other
system module, using a twisted pair network connection. It
receives power from a 15VDC wall pack transformer.

PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
What’s in your
Card Enrollment
Kit?
The PassPoint CEK is a kit that includes the following:
•
1 Desktop case, containing,
-Computer Port Module (PTCPM)
-Proximity reader, for card enrollment (PTPROX)
•
1 twisted pair network cable
•
1 plug-in transformer
Installing the CEK
There are seven steps that must be completed in order to install
and enroll the CEK into an existing PassPoint system. Follow
each of the steps below and follow the wiring diagram
provided.
Step 1 - Choose a location for the CEK
The CEK is essentially a stand-alone unit. That is, it can be
placed on a desk or any other convenient work area. However,
the CEK must be located near the system computer, since this is
where card enrollment takes place. The administrator will need
easy access to both the computer and the CEK when enrolling
cards.
Step 2 - Connect the CEK to the system
Connecting the CEK to the system simply means wiring the
CEK into the existing twisted pair network. To do so, follow
the steps below and refer to the connections diagram provided:
1. Connect the “plug end” of the network cable into the
socket of the enrollment reader labeled NETWORK.
The twisted pair network cable supplied with the CEK has
two ends. One end contains a two-prong plug. This is the
end that gets connected into the enrollment reader.
Adding a Card Enrollment Kit 9-3
2. Connect the two leads on the other end of the network
cable to terminals 15 and 16 of the MLB.
Either lead can be connected to either MLB terminal.
See Appendix A for wiring termination options.
Step 3 - Connect the power transformer and activate the
system
The CEK comes with a wall pack power transformer to be
connected between the enrollment reader and a power
source.
1. Connect the applicable end of the power lead into the
socket of the enrollment reader labeled POWER.
2. Plug the transformer into a suitable power source and
activate the system.

Step 4 - Add and set up the CEK
Now that the CEK is powered up, you must add the new module
(CPM) to your existing installation. To add and set up the new
CPM, follow the procedure below:
1. From the Config menu, select Hardware.
The Installer Configuration dialog box appears:
Use the Installer
Configuration dialog
box to view/modify
system components
and to set various
system options.
The Installer Configuration dialog box lists all of the components of the system. Here is where you add new system
modules.
Once you make changes in this screen, the changes must be
downloaded to the system database in order for them to take
effect.
Adding a Card Enrollment Kit 9-5
2. Right-click on the MLB once.
Right-click here one
time to see a menu of
options.
This will bring up a menu of options.
3. From the menu, select Add CPM.
The tree in the Installer Configuration dialog box will now
show your new CPM:
Once you add the module, it
appears in the tree.
Now you must enroll the CPM into the PassPoint system so that
the system recognizes the device and all its configuration settings. Enrolling the CPM is covered in the next step.
Step 5 - Auto enroll the CPM
Whenever a new module is added to the system, it must be
enrolled. Enrolling simply informs the system database that a
new system module is present.
When you enroll a system module, the system goes out and
searches for any modules connected to it that have not been
enrolled. It knows which modules are not enrolled because
these modules have serials numbers that contain only zeros.
9-6 Adding a Card Enrollment Kit
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
For instance, look at the CPM you have just added. It has a
serial number that contains only zeros, no other digits. That
means that it has not been enrolled, and is not truly part of the
system yet.
To enroll the CPM you just added, follow the procedure below:
1. Click the Auto Enroll button on the Installer Configuration dialog box.
Refer to the diagram below for the location of the Auto
Enroll button:
Auto Enroll
button
Clicking this button brings up the Auto Enroll dialog box,
shown below:

to be enrolled.
The enrollment process is all done automatically once you
click Start Scan. The entire process will not take more than
a few moments.
Adding a Card Enrollment Kit 9-7
2. Click the Start Scan button.
The system will go out and search for the CPM. When it
finds it, a message will appear saying that the CPM has been
enrolled.
The system will stop scanning for modules. If you had been
enrolling more than one module, you would have had to
wait until the system told you that all the modules had been
enrolled.
Never power-down the MLB during this process.
Step 6 - Configure the reader
In order for the CEK’s reader to function, it must be configured.
You need to tell it how to function so that the system will know
how to use it.
To configure the CEK reader:
1. In the Installer Configuration dialog box, right-click on
the CPM.
A sub-menu of choices will appear.
2. Select Properties from the sub-menu.
Selecting Properties calls up a dialog box for the module.
This dialog box contains tabs and fields of information

Step 7 - Download the database
The last step in getting your CEK operational is to download
the database.
Remember, the PassPoint system database resides on the MLB.
Here is where all of your system configuration data is stored.
However, when you make changes on your computer, these
changes are not automatically made to the database on the
MLB. They are kept in a temporary storage area on your
computer until you download them to your MLB database. Any
changes made on the computer must be downloaded to the
database in order for them to take effect.
1. Close the Installer Configuration dialog box.
At close, the system will automatically ask you if you want
to download the database:
2. Click Yes.

System Modules
Adding System Modules
System modules are stand-alone modules that are not part of a
PassPoint Kit. Individual modules can be added to expand your
PassPoint system.
In this chapter you will learn:
•
What types of modules can be added to your system
•
How to add and enroll individual system modules
•
How to configure each type of system module
Adding System Modules 10-1
Understanding System Modules
Up to this point, you have seen how to add kits to your
PassPoint system in order to expand its functionality. You
know also that kits contain modules, such as MLBs and DCMs.
However, the PassPoint system can be expanded without kits,
by adding individual modules directly to the installation. For
instance, if you want to add a DCM to the system, you can do so
without adding an entire Door Expansion Kit. Adding modules
separately allows you greater flexibility when expanding your
system.
There are five types of modules that can be added to your
system. They are:
•
•
•
•
•
Door Control Module (DCM)
Quad Relay Module (QRM)
Zone Input Module (ZIM)
Computer Port Module (CPM)
Vista Gateway Module (VGM)
If additional power is required when adding modules, a power
supply (PTCANPOWER) is available. This power supply is the
same as the PTDPSU except that it is mounted in a can that has
room to mount two additional modules.
How do you add a
module to a
system?
Essentially, there are four steps to adding an individual system
module to an existing PassPoint system. These four steps apply
to each type of module, and are:
Step 1 - Install the module
Step 2 - Enroll the module
Step 3 - Configure the module
Step 4 - Download the database
10-2 Adding System Modules
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Installing Modules
Each system module purchased comes with its own installation
instructions. These instructions detail all the steps needed to get
the module installed in an existing PassPoint system. Included
in these instructions are wiring information, mounting
procedures, etc. Refer to the documentation accompanying
your system module for instructions on performing this step.
Adding and Enrolling Modules
Once the module has been physically installed, it needs to be
added to the system and enrolled so that the system knows that
it’s there and can recognize it. To add the new module to the
system, follow the procedure below:
Adding a module
1. From the Config menu, select Hardware.

show your new module:
Once you add the module, it
appears in the tree. In this
example, a QRM has been
added.
Now you must enroll the module into the PassPoint system so
that the system recognizes the device and all its configuration
settings. Enrolling the module is covered in the next step.
10-4 Adding System Modules
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Enrolling a module
Whenever a new module is added to the system, it must be
enrolled. Enrolling simply informs the system database that a
new system module is present.
When you enroll a system module, the system goes out and
searches for any modules connected to it that have not been
enrolled. It knows which modules are not enrolled because
these modules have serial numbers that contain only zeros.
To enroll the module you just added, follow the procedure
below:
1. Click the Auto Enroll button on the Installer Configuration dialog box.
Refer to the diagram below for the location of the Auto
Enroll button:

10-6 Adding System Modules
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Configuring Modules
When you configure a module, you’re really telling the system
how you want the module to act and what functions you want it
to perform. Each type of module can perform different tasks
and contains different components. It’s up to you to determine
how these components are to act in your system.
In addition to relays, which are used on DCMs and QRMs,
there are other components to be configured, such as triggers
(for DCMs and QRMs) and zones (for ZIMs).
To configure a module:
1. In the Installer Configuration dialog box, right-click on
the module you want to configure.
A sub-menu of choices will appear.
2. Select Properties from the sub-menu.
Selecting Properties calls up a dialog box for the module.
This dialog box contains tabs and fields of information
describing how the module functions. Each field can be
modified to tailor the functioning of the module.
3. Fill in the fields of the dialog box as applicable.
The tabs and fields for each module type are different.
Refer to the following sections for the applicable module
type you are configuring for a description of each field.
4. When you are done, click OK.
Once you click OK, you can download the database to save
your changes. Refer to the section of this chapter titled
“Download the Database” for information on performing
this step.

Wiring Considerations
Wiring Considerations
When installing your PassPoint system, there are several wiring
factors that need to be considered. This appendix explains the
various wiring topologies and provides details about wiring
specifications.
Wiring Considerations A-1
Wiring Considerations
Before selecting sites for your various system cabinets, you
should understand how the system is wired together.
All system modules communicate with the Main Logic Board
via a twisted pair network technology. This connection
supports communications with up to 126 peripheral modules.
Each module connected to the network is considered a “node.”
If you are using a PassPoint Access Starter Kit, you have two
nodes: an MLB and a DCM, both of which have their own serial
numbers. You can, however, expand your system by adding
additional nodes. For example, you can add another DCM to
control two more Access Points.
When wiring the system and selecting installation sites for your
components, there are several factors you must keep in mind.
These factors are described on the following pages.
The wiring method and installation locations recommended in
this manual are in accordance with the National Electrical Code
ANSI/NFPA 70.
Topology
The system’s unshielded twisted pair wiring technology is
designed to support free-topology wiring, and will
accommodate bus, star, loop, or any combination of these
topologies. PassPoint modules can be located at any point
along the network wiring. This capability simplifies system
installation and makes it easy to add modules if the system ever
A-2 Wiring Considerations

needs to be expanded. The five different wiring topologies are
represented in the following diagrams.

When planning your wiring scheme, keep in mind that using
shielded wiring will drastically reduce the allowable wire run
lengths.
RS-232 cabling:
Standard, 9-conductor, shielded, 22 AWG cable, 32 feet (null
modem)
Refer to the cable drawings in Chapter 3 if a longer RS-232
Cable is required.
Keypad wiring:
22 AWG, 3 feet
(The keypad should be mounted on the cabinet only and not
wired through the premises.)
Power Harness:
Use power harness SA12160 only (supplied). (Local and
remote power outputs of power supply.)
Wiring Considerations A-7
Door strike power:
Depends on wire gauge and current requirements of the door
strike or magnetic lock. Probably about 500 feet of 16 AWG
wire for 350 mA of current.
Reader interfaces:
200 feet of 22 gauge
300 feet of 20 gauge
500 feet of 18 gauge
Color Code of termination resistors:
52.3 ohm - Green, Red, Orange, Gold, Brown
105 ohm - Brown, Black, Green, Black, Brown
Wiring notes
Keep reader, Echelon, and RS-232 wiring away from any highcurrent wiring. This includes the door strikes, as well as any
building wiring that delivers power to “noisy” load (AC units,
refrigerators. etc.).
We suggest using an electric suppressor such as EL-EDS
(manufactured by EDCO) to provide transients protection for
magnetic locks/door strikes and relay contacts. Install the
suppressor as close as possible across the leads connected to the
leads lock.

Glossary

Access Control Glossary
Access Control Glossary
A
Access Card - A card, generally the size and shape of a credit
card, containing encoded data. The data can be encoded in a
variety of ways, sometimes including more than one encodation
technology. (See Magnetic Stripe, Wiegand, Proximity.)
Access Control - Allowing the right person through the right
doors at the right time based on: 1) What they have, 2) What
they are, and/or 3) What they know.
Access Group - A group of individuals that share common
access privileges, in regards to associated Access Points (doors)
and times. The Access Group defines the access privileges of
the individuals. All members of an Access Group have
identical access privileges.
Access Level - The type of access permissions assigned to a
Cardholder.
Access Partition/Access Area - A completely enclosed space
that is controlled for entry and egress. Generally, when a
person passes into the area, PassPoint will note that the person
Glossary G-1
is in the specified area. In this way, the system can keep track
of where people are within a facility. Note, however, that both
entry to and egress from the area must be logged by the
PassPoint system in order for this feature to work. That is, if
the entry to an area is controlled by PassPoint but egress is not
controlled by PassPoint, the system will not be notified when a
person leaves the area. This will lead to incorrect occupancy
reading of the protected areas.
Access Point - A collection of card readers, zones, triggers, and
relays committed to the control and monitoring of the door
control hardware at a single point of passage.
Access Privileges - The rights allocated to an individual which
define his/her access capabilities. Access privileges consist of
the specifications of when and where a person may gain access
or be allowed egress from a controlled area.
Anti-Passback (APB) - An Access Control function whereby a
cardholder is prevented from “passing back” his card to another
person to gain entry into the same area twice, without leaving.
A parking garage would be a good example of such a situation.
A boss may try to pass his card back to his secretary, so that
they may both park in the executive parking lot. Facilities are
typically fitted with both Entry and Exit readers when AntiPassback is implemented. A cardholder must alternate usage
between entry and exit readers. If the cardholder attempts to
pass through an entry reader twice consecutively, the
cardholder will generate an Anti-Passback violation. In
addition, based on the configuration of the Access Control
System, he may be denied access as a result of that violation. In
ADEMCO’s implementation, it simply means attempting to use
the same Access Point in the same direction within a specified
G-2 Glossary
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
period of time (without using that Access Point in the opposite
direction).
Archive - A file stored on your system’s computer that holds
previously uploaded events. Archives allow you to keep and
organize all of the events recorded by your system.
Arm Away - This is a function of the burglary sub-system of
the PassPoint system. Arming the system enables zones to
cause a burglary alarm. Arming the burglary sub-system in the
Away mode implies that you will be away from the premises
and enables Interior and Perimeter zone types so that they will
cause an alarm when faulted.
Arm Stay - This is a function of the burglary sub-system of the
PassPoint system. Arming the system enables zones to cause a
burglary alarm. Arming the burglary sub-system in the Stay
mode implies that you are staying on the premises and enables
only the Perimeter and 24 Hour zones types.
B
Biometrics - Readers that identify human attributes such as
fingerprint, hand geometry, voice recognition, or retinal scans.
Bypass (Access Point) - When an Access Point is placed in
Bypass mode, the locking mechanism is unlocked, no forced
door or door open too long alerts are generated, and any
requests to exit are ignored (the door is already unlocked). The
access control industry also refers to this condition as “Free
Access”.
Bypass (Zone) - When an alarm zone is placed in Bypass
mode, it no longer generates alerts to the user when the zone
changes state. You may want to Bypass an internal zone (such
Glossary G-3
as a corridor) during the day, when you would expect activity,
but no security violations are actually occurring.
C
Card Reader - A device used by Cardholders to identify
themselves to the PassPoint system. The card reader reads the
Cardholder’s access card so that the access privileges of the
Cardholder may be examined in order to determine if the
Cardholder should be allowed to pass into the protected area
In some cases, the device used for identification may be a
keypad rather than a card reader. Instead of presenting a card to
the keypad, the Cardholder must enter their assigned Personal
Identification Number (PIN code) in order to identify his/
herself. In situations where higher security is required, the
entry reader may be a combination unit which acts as both a
keypad and a card reader.
Cardholder - An occupant of a premises who has been issued
an access card or access code (or PIN, Personal Identification
Number) which is used to request passage through protected
Access Points within the premises.
Committed Resource - A resource, such as a reader or relay,
that is directly assigned to an Access Point. The committed
resource can no longer be controlled or monitored as an
individual item. A committed relay, for example, is used to
control the door to which it is assigned.
CPM (Computer Port Module) - The CPM acts as an
enrollment station. The enrollment station cannot be committed
to an Access Point.

D
Day Template - The part of a time schedule that is used to
specify time intervals during the day that an action can occur.
Day templates contain time “windows” that define start and
stop times for actions. For example, A Day Template could
contain the following time intervals or “windows”: 07:0008:30, 12:00-13:00, 17:00-17:30. This Day Template could
then be assigned to Monday through Friday of a schedule, and
the schedule could then be assigned to a scheduled action upon
window opening or closing. That action could be to bypass an
Access Point during normal workdays. (See also: Schedules)
DCM (Door Control Module) - The DCM provides all the
inputs and outputs required to manage one or two Access Points
(i.e. doors). This may also be a single Access Point where AntiPassback is implemented.
Deny Override - This function allows all cards to be granted
access. When a system is initially installed, this feature can be
enabled to allow all people to access all doors. The event
history can then be reviewed and the configuration fine-tuned.
After a week or so of careful monitoring, the feature can be
disabled, and standard control can be enforced.
Disarm - This is a function of the burglary sub-system of the
PassPoint system. Disarming the system disables zones from
causing a burglary alarm.
Disarming the burglary sub-system in the Away mode disables
Interior, Perimeter, and 24 Hour zone types so that they will not
cause an alarm when faulted.
Disarming the burglary sub-system in the Stay mode disables
only the Perimeter and 24 Hour zone types.
Glossary G-5
Door Control Hardware - The equipment installed at an
Access point to control the entry and exit of Cardholders.The
type of door control hardware you should choose depends in
part on the level of security you want for each Access Point.
You can have doors that have only a single card reader, or you
can have card reader/keypad combination units requiring an
occupant to enter a PIN code after swiping his/her card. There
are many types of door control hardware available, as well as
different ways to configure them.
Door Control Relay - The Door Control Relay is an
electromechanical switch which is used to control the flow of
electricity to the door locking mechanism. The Door Control
Relay provides a “form C” dry contact set for an output. In this
way it can be used to introduce or eliminate current flow to an
external device.
Door Open Time - The amount of time a door is permitted to
remain open after the door is unlocked, before an alarm is
generated by the access control system.
Door Strike - An electromechanical locking device typically
installed in a door frame to enable locking and unlocking of the
door by electrical or electronic means. Internally, the device
consists of a solenoid to which power is applied, causing a
plunger to move linkage which releases a locking mechanism.
DSM (Door Status Monitor) - A zone in an Access Control
System committed to the monitoring of a door sense switch.
The door sense switch will reflect the state of the door (open or
closed) and also allow the PassPoint to determine if the door
has been forced open, or held open too long.
G-6 Glossary
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
Duress - A condition whereby a cardholder may be confronted
by an intruder in an effort to gain access to a secure area. The
cardholder can “secretly” signal security that he is entering the
secure area under “duress” through the implementation of a
duress feature.
E
EILR Supervision (End In Line Resistor Supervision) - A
mode which is used to detect when someone has cut or shorted
a cable monitoring a zone, such as a door sense switch. A
resistor can be placed in the zone’s circuit at the protected point,
such that the controller can detect line trouble, in addition to
fault and normal conditions.
Enrollment Reader - A card reader (connected to a CPM)
which can be used to enroll cards into the Access Control
System.
Entry/Exit Control - A means of controlling and monitoring
the flow of Cardholders through a building. It is used in
conjunction with Access Groups to either allow or deny group
members access to specific areas, based on their directional
usage of Access Points.
Entry Reader - An input device installed on the entry side of
an Access Point door. At this device, individuals are required
to identify themselves to the PassPoint system so that their
access privileges may be examined in order to determine if they
should be allowed to pass into the protected area. The term is
entry reader because in most cases, the device will be a card
reader at which a Cardholder must present their ID card.
However, the device may be a keypad at which the individual
must enter their assigned Personal Identification Number (PIN
code) in order to identify his/herself. In some cases, where
Glossary G-7
higher security is required, the entry reader may be a
combination unit which acts as both a keypad and a card reader.
EOLR Supervision (End Of Line Resistor Supervision) - A
mode which is used to detect when someone has cut or shorted
a cable monitoring a zone, such as a door sense switch. A
resistor can be placed in the zone’s circuit at the protected point,
such that the controller can detect line trouble, in addition to
fault and normal conditions.
Event/Action Relationship - An option programmed by the
user that allows system functions to be linked to a system event.
Upon the occurrence of the system event, the action is
performed.
Event Browser - The PassPoint tool for viewing uploaded
events. The Event Browser organizes all of the uploaded events
by date and displays them on screen.
Event Log (or History Log) - A list of events which indicate
the actions performed by and within the PassPoint system.
Each event log entry contains the time, date, and any other
attributes that specifically define the event.
Executive Privileges - An option that can be granted to
Cardholders to allow them full access to all of the system
Access Points.
Exit Only - One of the modes in which an Access Point may be
configured to operate. In this mode, the Access Point will only
accept exit requests. Any entry reader will be ignored.
Exit Reader - An exit reader is an input device that is installed
on the exit side of an Access Point door. At this device, an
G-8 Glossary
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
individual is required to identify his/herself to the system so
that their access privileges may be examined in order to
determine if they should be allowed to pass out of the protected
area. (See also: Entry Reader)
F
Facility Code - An encoded value (within the access card)
which can be used to identify the facility or site that issued a
specific group of cards. This information can be used in a
reduced security environment whereby the specific card number
is ignored, but anyone from that “facility” can gain access.
Fail Safe - A locking device which will automatically unlock in
the event of power loss.
Fail Secure - A locking device which will automatically lock in
the event of power loss.
Force Arm Away - Arms the burglary system in the away
mode. Any faulted zones will be automatically bypassed.
Force Arm Stay - Arms the burglary system in the stay mode.
Any faulted zones will be automatically bypassed.
Forgive (Entry/Exit, Anti-Passback) - Because Entry/Exit
and Anti-Passback violations can result in access and egress
denials, Cardholders can be “stuck” in the place where the
violation is detected if their card swipes are denied. These
functions permit the administrator to “forgive” Anti-Passback
and Entry/Exit violations for a Cardholder and/or an Access
Point. When these functions are used, the system's AntiPassback and/or Entry/Exit mechanisms and records are resynchronized so that Cardholders can continue through the
premises.
Glossary G-9
Form C Relay Output - A Form C relay output is a
configuration comprised of a Common terminal point, a
Normally Open terminal point, and a Normally Closed terminal
point. With the relay in a de-energized state, the Common and
Normally Closed points are connected to each other, and the
Common and Normally Open points are disconnected from
each other. When the relay energizes, the Common and
Normally Closed points disconnect from each other, and the
Common and Normally Open points connect to each other.
Free Access - See Bypass (Access Point)
H
Hard Anti-Passback - If a cardholder is in violation of AntiPassback rules, he will not be granted access.
Hard Entry/Exit - If a cardholder is in violation of Entry/Exit
rules, he will not be granted access.
Holiday - A component of time schedules that define days of
the work week when the “normal” work schedule does not
apply to the premises. For example, Thanksgiving day would
be considered a holiday.
K
Keypad - Typically a 12 button arrangement of momentary
push-buttons used to transmit a code to the system based on a
specific sequence of key strokes. The keypad will generally
resemble a telephone keypad with respect to the relative
positions and key name assignments.
L
Locked (Access Point) - A mode which latches the door of the
Access Point. The Access Point's readers will be disabled for
access control functions. The Access Point will not allow any
accesses or egresses in the Locked mode.
G-10 Glossary
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
M
Magnetic Stripe - The black or brown stripe typically found on
the back of a credit card or access card. The stripe is encoded
similarly to a cassette tape. That is, magnetic domains are
impressed upon the material so that it can be read by a reader at
a later time.
Mag Lock (Magnetic Lock) - A large coil of wire mounted to
a door frame, which when current is passed through the coil,
creates a strong magnetic field. A large metal plate is also
secured to the door, and will be held tightly against the coil of
wire, due to the presence of the strong magnetic field. The door
can be released (or “unlocked”) by interrupting the flow of
current through the coil, thereby removing the strong magnetic
field.
MLB (Main Logic Board) - The MLB is the main controller of
the Access Control System. It contains the card database, the
event log, and system configuration information It also keeps
track of the system status. The MLB receives its power from
the Access Control power supply, and communicates with the
Door Control Module (described above) to determine if access
should be granted to a particular Access Point. It can also
coordinate the activities of other system modules, such as the
QRM or ZIM.
Modem - A device that converts digital information into analog
information so it can be transmitted over telephone lines, and
converts the received analog data back to digital data at the
other end by another modem.
N
Name Pool - A collection of names, assigned by a user, that can
be applied to system objects (i.e. relays, readers, etc.) The
name pool can contain a maximum of sixty names, each up to
fifteen characters in length. This can also be known as “Custom
Alpha Descriptors”.
Glossary G-11
O
Outputs - Auxiliary devices in an access control system that
control external devices such as electronic locks, piezo
sounders, or light indicators. These can consist of relay outputs
(dry contacts) or transistorized outputs (current-sinking
devices).
P
PIN (Personal Identification Number) - A number assigned
to an individual that, when entered in to a keypad, will allow the
Access Control System to grant access into a secure area. PINs
can also be combined with encoded cards and biometric devices
to ensure higher levels of security.
PIN Retry Lockout - A feature that disables the keypad of an
entry reader for a specified amount of time after a specified
number of improper PIN entries. PIN retry lockout protects the
premises from intruders who tamper with a keypad controlled
Access Point. It slows down the process of trying all possible
code combinations. The system records an event when PIN
Retry Lockout is initiated at an Access Point.
PIR (Passive Infra Red) - Typically, a sensor device that can
sense movement within a specific area and change the state of a
set of internal contacts as a result. These contacts can then be
wired to a Request To Exit zone on an Access Control System
for automated egress when a person approaches an Access
Point from inside a protected area.
Power supply (Access Control) - The Access Control power
supply provides all the power needed by the MLB and DCM. It
is connected to the AC line voltage via an 18VAC, 50VA
Basler-type plug-in power transformer. The power supply
provides a battery backup/charger connection and supports a 7AmpHour battery. In addition, it has the capability to monitor
and test the AC power input and battery condition. The results
G-12 Glossary
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
of which are provided to the modules, and ultimately to the
MLB.
Pre-Alarm Trigger Time (P-A Time) - This is the amount of
time, in seconds, before the start of an Access Point Door Open
alarm, at which time the pre-alarm device will be energized.
For example, if the door is set to be allowed to remain open for
30 seconds, an appropriate pre-alarm time would be 10 seconds.
After the door has been unlatched for 20 seconds, the system
would then give 10 seconds of warning to someone who is
holding the door open. If the door is still open at the end of the
30 seconds, a Door Open Timeout Alarm Event will occur. The
pre-alarm device will remain energized (depending upon its
mode) until the door is closed, clearing the Door Open Timeout
Alarm.
Precedence Level - A type of authority level that tells the
system when certain system resources can be controlled.
Simply put, precedence levels determine whether or not an
operation should take place over the authority of any other
previously initiated action.
Protected - The normal operating status of an Access Point.
When an Access Point is protected, only valid Cardholders can
access it.
Proximity - A reader technology relying on a radio frequency
link between the reader and the card (prox reader and prox
card). Encoded information is passed between the card and
reader, usually supplying a unique pattern enabling
identification of the Cardholder.
Glossary G-13
Q
QRM (Quad Relay Module) - A module that can be placed on
the Access Control network to provide four additional Form C,
supervised outputs, in addition to four Trigger outputs.
R
RCM (Reduced Capability Mode) - In the unlikely event of a
DCM (Door Control Module) becoming “disconnected” from
the rest of the PassPoint system, the DCM can be told how to
act while it is out of contact with the MLB (Main Logic Board).
When it is “out of contact,” the DCM is placed in Reduced
Capability Mode (RCM).
Reader - A device that a Cardholder presents his access card to,
that will read the card’s encoded data and transmit it to an
access control panel. The panel will then make a decision as to
what action to take as a result of that card read (energize a relay,
etc.).
Relay Supervision - The common pole of the Form C relay
will be monitored for the presence of voltage. An alert will be
generated if the voltage is not sensed. This might be used to
sense if an external power supply (used for lock power) has
failed.
RTE (Request To Exit) - A condition generated by a device
(push-button, crash bar, PIR, switch floor mat, etc.) that
indicates to PassPoint that someone is leaving the protected
area. No card is required, and no forced door event is
generated. It can also result in the door unlocking. Other
names used in the industry for this condition are: REX, Egress,
and Bypass. Note: Do not confuse this usage of bypass with the
ADEMCO meaning. (Please see Bypass)
G-14 Glossary
PassPoint Express Installation and Setup Guide
S
Schedule (or Time Schedule) - A list of time intervals that can
dictate when events or conditions can start, stop, or occur. For
example, schedules control when certain Access Groups are
allowed access to the premises. Schedules are made up of Day
Templates.
Shunt (Access Point) - This function disables the DSM zone
on the Access Point. The Access Point will then operate as
though it does not have a DSM zone installed. This function is
useful in instances of hardware failure, when a bad door contact
might hinder the operation of the Access Point. The Access
Point can be operated in the shunted state until it is repaired.
Shunt (Zone) - Shunting a zone serves almost the same
purpose as the Bypass Zone function except for one exception.
While the Bypass Zone function causes detected changes in
zone status to occur without generating any alarms, Shunting a
zone causes the zone to go unmonitored. This can be beneficial
when there is a malfunctioning zone on a peripheral module.
The peripheral module may be flooding the communications
network with zone status change messages. Shunting the zone
tells the appropriate peripheral module to ignore the applicable
zone and stop sending status change messages. The zone can
then be kept Shunted until it is repaired.
Skeleton Codes (or Skeleton Cards) - Skeleton codes are used
to unlock Access Points during Reduced Capability Mode
(RCM) operation. They are only used when the communication
link between the MLB and its DCM has been interrupted.
Under these conditions, the DCM uses these skeleton codes as a
very small card database. When the communication link is
restored and the system quits RCM mode, the skeleton code
database is no longer utilized.
Glossary G-15
Soft Anti-Passback - If a cardholder is in violation of AntiPassback rules, he will be granted access, but a record of the
violation will be stored in the event history.
Soft Entry/Exit - If a cardholder is in violation of Entry/Exit
rules, he will be granted access, but a record of the violation
will be stored in the event history.
Supervision - The process by which a device is monitored for
faulty operation. This is typically accomplished through
voltage or resistance monitoring. (Also see: EOLR Supervision
and Relay Supervision)
T
Threat Level - A global condition that can be set by system
users to qualify a state of emergency. There are six threat
levels, TL0 through TL5. TL5 is the highest threat level.
Threat Levels can also be set for individual actions, indicating
the global Threat Level at which the action will be allowed to
take place. If the global Threat Level goes beyond the setting
for the action, the action will not be allowed to occur.
Transaction - An event that occurred within the access control
system which generates a record in the stored database.
Transient Suppression - A process by which short term, high
energy bursts can be limited to safe levels by the use of
specialized electronic components. The purpose of this might
be to protect sensitive electronic equipment connected over
communications lines of considerable length.
Trigger Outputs - Trigger Outputs are solid state digital
switches (transistors) that can be configured as committed or
uncommitted resources. These can be used to illuminate LEDs,
activate piezoelectric sounders, energize an external relay, or
signal a long-range radio transmitter.
