Bewator Entro User manual — Introduction
Congratulations on your
choice of Bewator Entro!
This manual is intended for the person responsible for the Bewator Entro access
control system.
If you intend to also use the Reservation function – we have chosen to describe
this in a separate chapter starting on page 80. Reservation uses a network based
Entro system (which may not be installed in all applications).
Instructions on managing and running the programming, such as registering and
deleting persons from the system, are found in the system’s built-in Help function.
How to use the Help function is described in the Using Help section below.
You should be familiar with Windows
Bewator Entro is designed to make programming of the information as easy as
possible. It is however an advantage if you are familiar with the Windows
environment. If you have no previous experience of Windows, we recommend that
you take a basic course.
Using Help
Bewator Entro has a built-in Help function. Using Help you can display instructions
on your screen about the task you are currently performing.
To open the Help function, click the Help button, or press F1 on the keyboard.
By clicking the right mouse button as you point to an object (a field, tab or similar)
you can display a descriptive text about this particular object. Clicking the question
mark button and then pointing to the object you need help on obtains the same
effect.
Entro manuals
The software package includes the User and Installer manuals. The same
documentation is also available from the program in pdf-format.
You need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your computer to be able
to read the manuals. This software can be downloaded free-of-charge from
Adobes’ web site.

How the system works
Bewator Entro is an access control system. It is designed for use in both small and
large companies, wherever there is a need to control which people should have
access to the different doors and departments in the premises.
Next to the doors, card readers with keypads (optional) are installed. The card
readers are connected to segment controllers, which, are programmed from a PC.
If needed, Bewator Entro can control up to 1000 access control systems installed
in different buildings. The systems may be connected directly to the PC, using the
local area network or via a modem.
Bewator Entro consists of the following equipment:
•
The Bewator Entro software. The software runs on a PC with Windows
98/2000/XP/NT4 or later.
• 512 doors and 20 000 cards.
• 240 time schedules and 480 access groups
• 240 zones (alarm, anti-pass back, roll call and entrance limitation zones)
• 16 system users in 4 levels + installer level
• 14 holidays, 7 half days and 4 holiday periods in each time schedule
In Bewator Entro is an integrated software module for reservation functions, like
time booking for sports arenas etc.
•
64 reservation objects (machine groups).
•
Maximum of 10 IOR6 relays in each machine group.
•
32 time schedules with 24 intervals in each.
•
Flexible interval reservation.
•
Maximum number of reservations is 4000.
•
Confirmations may be sent by e-mail.
•
SR34i Segment controllers. Up to 16 segment controllers can be connected
to the PC in a loop. Each segment controller is capable of controlling 4, 8, 16 or
32 doors. The information you programme in the PC is stored in all segment
controllers. This brings the advantage of being able to use the PC for other
purposes or shut it down when you are not programming or controlling the
system.
•
CF8. Memory card used in Reservation functions (mounted in SR34i).
•
Door controllers with remote readers. The door controllers are connected to
the segment controllers. A door controller controls one door, with one or two
readers. This combination is designed for outside doors or other doors with
higher requirements on function and security, e.g. alarm by-pass.
•
Door terminals DT05 or DT05Prox. Simple card readers connected directly to
a segment controller. They are installed indoors, next to doors with lower
requirements on function and security.
•
Relay central IOR6. Used for lift control and for machine/door control in
Reservation applications or general timer functions. In version 5 also for
summary alarm, emergency openings or power failure warning.
•
InfoPoint IP810. Reservation terminal used for time booking at the reservation
object. TCP/IP protocol for network connection is required.

Bewator Entro User manual — Introduction
Important concepts
To be able to programme the system you have to be familiar with the following
concepts:
•
Security levels
•
Time schedules and time zones
•
Access groups
•
Access registration
•
Zones
If you intend to use the Reservation system – see section Important concepts –
Reservation on page 82.
Security levels
The security level determines what action is needed to open a door. The following
security levels exist:
•
Door unlocked. The door is unlocked.
•
Group code. The door can be opened using a four-digit code, shared by a
group of people.
•
Card only. To open the door, a personal access card should be swiped
through the card reader. If the card is lost or stolen it is easy to cancel the
card.
•
Card + PIN. The door is opened when the access card is swiped and a
personal code belonging to this particular card has been entered.
•
Toggle – Group code. Similar to Group code above. When the code is
entered the first time, the door is opened and remains unlocked until the
code is entered the second time.
•
Toggle – Card. When the card is swiped the first time, the door is opened
and remains unlocked until the card is swiped the second time.
•
Toggle – Card + PIN. When the card is used and the code is entered the
first time, the door is opened and remains unlocked until the card is used
and the code is entered the second time.
•
Accompanied Access. Two people, each swiping their cards and entering
their codes within 15 seconds, are needed to open the door.
•
Closed door. The door cannot be opened by the card reader, but only from
an exit request button from the inside.
•
Locked door. The door is completely disconnected from the system, which
means that not even exit request operates.
•
Personal code without card. Bewator Entro can be set so that users may
choose a PIN code instead of a card. This will disable the Group code
operation.
Using the security levels, you can determine the suitable type of protection for your
premises. During the day, when there are people in the premises, Group code or
Card only may be sufficient. During the night, the Card + code security level is
perhaps more suitable.

Time schedules and time zones
The purpose of creating time schedules is to give different people access to a
door at different hours, and to determine security levels for a door at different
hours.
In an average-sized company, the staff will probably have similar working hours. If
this is the case, you may create a time schedule for these hours called, for
example, Office hours. A time schedule covers 24 hours and can be divided into
time zones.
Example
Other time
Working hours
Lunch
Working hours
Other time
00.00-07.59
08.00-11.59
12.00-12.59
13.00-16.59
17.00-23.59
Time zone 1: Working hours Mon.–Fri. 8.00–11.59, 13.00–16.59
Time zone 2: Lunch Mon.–Fri 12.00–12.59
Other time: All time not in Time 1 & Time 2, including Holidays
Note! A time zone is valid from and including the first second in the first minute
up to and including the last second in the last minute.
The purpose of dividing the time schedule into time zones is to be able to provide
each door with a specific security level for each time zone. If you divide the time
schedule into the time zones Working hours, Lunch and Other time, you can
give the door a security level for each of these time zones. During office hours,
when there are people in the building, perhaps Group code is suitable. During
lunch, you can set the security level to Card only.
During the remaining time, i.e. nights and weekends, you could raise the security
level to Card + PIN. If you only need two different security levels, it is sufficient to
divide the time schedule (the 24 hours) into two time zones, i.e. Time zone 1 and
Other time.
During programming, you will be asked to enter security levels for one door at a
time. If a door leads to a department requiring a high security level 24 hours a day,
set the security level to Card + PIN for all three time zones.
Example
Door: Entrance, time schedule: Office hours
Other time
Working hours
Lunch
Working hours
Other time
Card + PIN
Group code

If the company has workshop personnel with other working hours, you may create
a second time schedule to determine the permissions for doors leading to the
workshop premises.
You can programme up to 240 different time schedules with three time zones per
time schedule. Other time is always one of the time zones.
10
Bewator Entro User manual — Important concepts
Access groups
In a large company with several different departments, you may have to divide the
staff into different access groups. This way you can decide which doors the
different groups should have access to – and during which hours they should have
access to these doors. For example, you can programme so the reception staff
does not have access to the research department during lunch; at the same time
both the reception staff and the research staff should have access to common
doors during all time zones. Each person may belong to six access groups at the
most.
Access registration
If desired, you can have information about transactions and other events printed
regularly. You decide for which doors and during which time zones this should be
possible. For example, you can request printouts of all transactions at night
through the main entrance. The printout states which door has been used, what
time and the names of the people who used the reader.
Bewator Entro furthermore offers the possibility to choose the types of events to be
registered. For example, you can choose to show only whenever a door is left open
or whenever an alarm occurs, or only show exceptions (i.e. not to show normal
transactions.)
You may choose whether registered events should be printed or displayed on the
PC’s screen. If the events should be printed you can choose which printer they
should be printed to.
Events are stored in event files on the PC’s hard disk. To free disk space the
system can be set so that event files are deleted after a specified time or when a
specific file size is obtained.
Zones
Zones are used to group a number of doors (readers) to have a specific function. In
a corridor several doors may constitute a zone.
Different zone types can be created:
• Alarm zones
• Anti-pass back zones
• Roll call zones
• Entrance limitation zones
• Reservation objects
• Interlock zones (2 doors)
Doors in Zones are created in the Bewator Installer program.
Bewator Entro User manual — Important concepts
11
Alarm zones
An alarm zone includes one or several doors leading to the same alarm-protected
area, where alarm by-pass is required at all doors. Alarm zones are defined in the
Bewator Installer program.
It is possible to combine the functions of manually activating the alarm and/or
automatically activating the alarm. I e if nobody activates it – Bewator Entro will.
The alarm control function enables you to determine which people should be
authorised to activate and deactivate an intruder alarm system linked to Entro. As
you are defining the access groups you will also be able to distribute the proper
alarm by-pass authorisation.
The following authorisation types exist:
• None. No authorisation.
• Activation. Authorisation to activate the alarm system. E.g suitable for cleaning
staff, who will be there before the end of working hours, and will be the ones to
activate the alarm.
• Deactivation. Authorisation to deactivate an alarm.
• Activation/deactivation. Authorisation to activate and deactivate an alarm.
Anti-pass back zones
Creating anti-pass back zones is a way to further increase security. Anti-pass
back means that a cardholder cannot enter a zone twice unless he has exited the
zone. If a user violates anti- pass back, i.e. does not use his card to leave a zone
and then tries to enter a zone, the card will be blacklisted.
On a door leading to an anti-pass back zone, an IN reader (on the outside of the
door) and an OUT reader (on the inside of the door) should be installed.
Remember that BCLINK readers with “sub-address” Entry and Exit respectively
also will work with this function and do not require a “main address” like DC22,
DC12, IOR6 etc.
Anti-pass back zones are defined in Bewator Installer. In Bewator Entro, it is
possible to specify for how long a card should be blacklisted if a person violates
anti-pass back (see the Programming chapter on page 65).
If anti-pass back zones have been defined, roll call zones are automatically
created, enabling you to monitor a person’s whereabouts in the Door and event
monitor (see the Door and event monitor chapter, the Roll call section on page
76).
Note! Anti-pass back works only with the Card or Card+PIN security levels.
12
Bewator Entro User manual — Important concepts
Roll call zones
Just like anti-pass back, roll call requires IN and OUT readers to be installed on
either side of the doors belonging to the zone. By defining roll call zones a person’s
whereabouts in the premises can be monitored in the Door and event monitor
(see the Door and event monitor chapter, the Roll call section on page 76).
The only difference between roll call and anti-pass back is that anti-pass back
includes the feature that cards will be blacklisted if a user does not use his card to
leave a zone he has previously entered.
Roll call zones are defined in Bewator Installer.
Note! Roll call works only with the Card or Card+PIN security levels.
Entrance limitation zones
A building can have areas where limited access can be allowed. In a school dining
hall for example, a card may grant the cardholder one meal a day. To prevent the
card from being passed to other people, an entrance limitation zone can be created
for this particular area (this is done in Bewator Installer).
In Entro, an access group can be created with the desired entrance limitations –
either a counter (a certain number of entries are allowed) or limited access (e.g.
once a day) or a combination of both.
In the dining hall example, the system could be set so that the card can be used
once a day for 20 days.
Using entrance limitation with a counter, it is possible to specify an individual
number of granted entries for each person in the access group.
Reservation objects
If you intend to use Bewator Entro for reservation you have to set up the object
(conference room, laundry etc.) as a zone. That is, you have to decide on which
card reader to use for reserving your objects - as well as any doors/readers on the
route to them.
Reservation can be used in many applications, e g conference rooms, laundries,
sports arenas, tennis courts etc. Using some suitable time intervals, the users
themselves can easily reserve times for access to the objects. Also the integrated
function called flexible interval reservation offers possibilities to reserve different
time intervals for each reservation.
You can even easily combine door access with relay activation for machine control,
light control etc, so that these will only be active during the times you have
reserved. For example, in a laundry room, machines can be randomly allocated to
minimise the wear of individual washing machines.
You can read more about reservation in the chapter Reservation.
Interlock zones
In some cases it is required to use two doors in an Interlock application. I e the first
door must be closed before the second door can be opened.
You solve this by creating an Interlock zone with two doors where each door have
a door monitor contact installed. When entering the doors in either direction Entro
will monitor for a closed contact before the opening relay is activated in the next
door.

Preparations
It is important that, before starting to programme, you have the correct, basic
information about the site you intend to set up and programme. Whether you have
used Bewator Entro before or not, you will avoid many mistakes if you have
planned correctly.
Installation
Before you begin installing, you should consider the size and layout of the
installation. How many segment controllers should be used? How many doors
should each segment controller control?
Which controllers will use TCP/IP and need a valid IP-address? In which part of the
network will the system be installed? Has the IT-Manager approved all network
settings for the PC’s and SR34i’s? Will some of the SR34i use dynamic IP
addressing ?
Should Bewator Entro control an intruder alarm? Which doors are included in the
alarm zones? Should some of the alarm zones be timer controlled and activated
automatically at certain hours?
We recommend that you do this in consultation with the end-user of the system.
A maximum of 16 segment controllers can be used in each Bewator Entro system.
Each segment controller should be given a name and an address, from 1 to 16. For
each segment controller, you will be asked to name and allocate addresses to the
doors controlled by the segment controller.
Programming
Before you start programming the system’s basic information, you should think
about how the system should function in the building. During which hours should
entry through the main entrance be permitted? Do certain people need to have
access 24 hours a day? Who should have access to the research department?
How does the cleaning staff get inside the building in the morning or evening?
If you also intend to use reservation functions – see section Important concepts –
Reservation on page 80.
You should also consider if anyone else should to be able to programme the
system and then create new System users with their own passwords. This is
necessary if e g several PC are to be connected to Entro.
14
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Installing the software
The next step is to install the Bewator Entro software.
Note 1! If the system will use dynamic IP addressing technique (DHCP) on the
local area network – you should read the chapter Dynamic IP address (DHCP)
and dynamic DNS
Note 2! If you intend to use a modem, you will also find information in the
Installation manual.
1
Normally the installation automatically starts when the CD is loaded. Otherwise
go to the Windows Start menu; choose Settings and then the Control panel.
2
Double click the Add/Remove Programs icon.
3
Click Install.
4
Insert the CD in the CD ROM drive and click Next.
5
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Dependent if the system is new or not, different steps are performed to achieve the
final solution. E g if it is the 1st or 2nd Pc, exchange of PC, expansion with more
SR34i etc, the Installer program is used in different ways.
Sometimes you have to know the system name as well as the user name &
password to be able to use the software. In the following section we describe how
to install the software from scratch.
We use a wizard to create the initial communication link to an SR34i controller.
Creating a basic database and connection
The first time you start the Installer program there is no database or information
about any connection to use in the PC. Therefore a wizard starts requesting the
necessary parameters. Depending of the selections made some of them might not
be needed. Proceed like this:
1
Go to the Windows Start menu; choose Programs and then Bewator Entro
Installer.
2
The wizard starts and you make the selections E g:
• New or existing system.
• The name of the site.
• How should this PC communicate with the site (TCP/IP, RS232 or
modem)?
If you select modem, enter the telephone number to the SR34i modem. In
case of RS232 the software automatically detects the correct COM-port in
the PC.
• If you select TCP/IP then initially static IP-address is assumed for the
SR34i. Proceed by clicking Next.
• The software has checked in the local area network (often isolated by a
router), for available SR34i’s.
• Click Next to see the available segment controllers.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
15
•
First you have the opportunity to complete these with the correct IPaddresses. In addition you can adjust the IP Address of all SR34i, not
only the one chosen for the PC.
•
You now have to select the SR34i you intend to use for connecting to this
PC. Note - only one can be used!
If it is not listed, enter the correct IP-address to another, chosen SR34i
and click Next.
Note – this indicates that the chosen controller is located outside the local
network and its IP-address has to be set up in another way. The network
must also be configured correctly to get the PC online.
•
Click Next.
3
Enter a the name of the site (Site name).
4
Enter a unique System name. Avoid names that could easily be found out by
unauthorised people.
Note! It is very important that you make a note of the system name. If you
have to replace the PC this system name must be entered before the
system will work again.
5
Click Finish and the Installer main window is displayed.
Normally you will now see detected units (as below) where you then select either to
programme all units or at least one SR34i (according to the chapter Programming
– Installer) – and then create a connection according to the section Create
connection to store events.
Automatic detection of units
The Installer programme has embedded functions for “finding” addressed and
connected segment controllers and door centrals. Subsequent expansions with
additional units will also be found in then same way.
If the site is correctly installed, with appropriate addresses, you only need to step
through each SR34i and door centrals according to following chapters. A list of
units will be displayed on the screen as soon as login to Installer is done. An SR34i
is displayed as *Cxx and a door unit or IOR6 is displayed as **Cxx:Dyy.
16
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Create connection to store events
When you have performed the steps in the previous section, the system still is in
an “Installer state”, which means that any events are sent to the PC only as long as
the PC is on-line. If you logout no events are buffered in the SR34i (neither sent to
the PC later on at login)
To get the Segment Controller to store events you have to create a correct
connection. When this is done the SR34i will know, any time you logon, which PC
to receive and store events from.
Proceed as follows:
1
Go to the tab Connections (in the Installer program) and click New.
2
A wizard starts and you select Bewator Entro – System administration –
and click Next
3
Enter a name of the connection, which SR34i, which PC and the
communication method.
4
Finish.
You have now created the first correct connection between the PC and the
Entro system.
5
Proceed according to chapter - Programming Installer to make all the
necessary settings for the installed Entro units.
Note! We also recommend that you also create System Users (in Entro) to be
able to manage the event filters, storing places and automatic logoff in a more
flexible way.

Programming - Installer
Now you have installed and connected all parts of the hardware on the installation,
installed the software Bewator Entro and created a connection for the PC. In this
chapter we will describe how to perform the configuration needed for the system.
Log on
1
Go to the Start menu; choose Programs and then Bewator Entro Installer. The
log on window is displayed.
2
Enter <user name> (bewa) in the User name field and press TAB.
3
Enter <password> (pass) in the Password field.
4
Select the System to use (if several exist).
5
Click OK. The Bewator Entro Installer main window is displayed.
Set time and date
Before starting to programme you should set the correct time and date. The clock
is shown separately in the lower, right corner of the window.
Note that if any SR34i is set to TCP/IP and will get the time from an external SNTP
timeserver – you cannot manually set the clock. See further next chapter.
Proceed as follows, if the system lets you correct the system clock:
1
Check that the indicators in the lower right corner of the Bewator Entro
windows display ONLINE and DB UP TO DATE.
2
Start the Installer or Entro program.
3
Choose Entro system clock on the System menu.
4
Check that the correct date and time are displayed. If not, enter the current
date and time in the New date and New time fields.
5
To disable automatic daylight saving time changes, remove the tick next to the
Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes prompt.
6
Click OK.

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Advanced system clock management
You only have to make the steps below if you intend to let the Entro fetch its time
externally and additionally allow each SR34i to adjust its time relatively to GMT.
Bewator Entro uses a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) – which fetches an
international clock (GMT) from an external SNTP process running on an external
server – (on the LAN/Internet) – or an internal server (SR34i). SNTP is necessary
for SR34i’s that are network connected (TCP/IP). If in doubt, consult the IT
manager.
If any network is used, the SR34i must be able to get the clock from a clock server
– when TCP/IP is used. Every controller set to Proxy must also have this setting.
This guarantees correct time in the system independent of where an SR34i is
installed.
When you programme an SR34i as Proxy, it will need to know where to fetch the
clock from. You can select internal or external.
In the menu System/Entro System time in Installer program are more choices for
the system clock. Do like this:
1
Check that the indicators in the lower right corner of the Bewator Entro
windows display ONLINE and DB UP TO DATE.
2
Click Advanced.
3
Select method for time server:
4
•
Internal time server (e g SR34i) and select controller.
•
External time server (e g via Internet) and enter IP-address.
Select if every SR34i is allowed to correct its time relatively to GMT time.
If this is selected – every segment controller will display a new tab Time where
the adjustment value is chosen (e g +1, +2 etc).
5
Exit
6
Check in the menu System/Entro System time and check the choice of
Automatic daylight saving time changes.

Programme names for segment controllers
Now programme the segment controllers. Dependent on how the SR34i’s should
communicate with each other, the parameters are set-up in different ways.
Remember that the basic parameters (like the IP address) initially can be set by
using the integrated keypad in each SR34i. Which means that you fulfil the
requirements for communicating with the PC, but set up the rest of the settings in
the Installer program.
If you intend to use dynamic IP addressing for segment controllers you should read
the chapter Dynamic IP address (DHCP) and dynamic DNS on page 33.
If a modem will be used – please refer to the Installer Manual for more information.
Here are two examples where a LAN is used – and one using direct RS232 cable.
Create multiple SR34i for TCP/IP communication

In this case two methods can be used to set-up the SR34i segment controllers.
Programming via RS232
A PC is connected to every SR34i via RS232 connection. The information is
transferred directly into every SR34i.
RS232 is the easiest method to use, when the segment controllers are placed in
different geographical areas. It is important that these get the correct IP-address,
system name and encryption key.
Every new SR34i is displayed as **Cx. Now proceed according to the steps in the
section SR34i Programming, to set the IP-address, Proxy and other necessary
parameters.
Programming via TCP/IP
In this case the PC communicates with a dedicated SR34i whilst the other
controllers will get the information from this one (via TCP/IP). If the system is new,
you will already have had the opportunity to set up the correct IP-address.
In the Installer program, the first controller is shown. You now have to use the
command New to create the rest of the controllers and to set the IP-address,
Proxy and other necessary parameters according to the steps the section SR34i
Programming.
Note! Transferring the data to/from completely new SR34i will take some minutes
(due to the load on the network). This also applies for updating the Door monitor
program.
20
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Create multiple SR34i for combined TCP/IP and RS485 communication
The combination of a local network and RS485 requires that the controller used for
TCP/IP has to be set-up as in the earlier section.
All other SR34i, using RS485, will be displayed with temporary symbols (**c1, **c2
etc.). The number refers to the segment controller’s address.
Then proceed with the steps in the section SR34i Programming.

SR34i Programming
Note! In a new TCP/IP based system, you will (when invoking the Installer
program) have the opportunity to add more not yet configured SR34i that the
software “finds” on the LAN. You will see them in a list. Just select any one of
them to be included.
1
In the Installer program select the desired segment controller (if it is not
already selected) and click Edit. Tip – You can also right-click and choose
New, Edit or Delete.
2
In the Name field, enter the segment controller’s name. A suitable name is the
room where the controller will be placed, e.g. Reception. Avoid using names
that may later be confused with door names. If the controller will also be used
for confirmation in reservation – see chapter Using confirmations in
Reservation.
3
Mark the tick-box Proxy for SR34i using TCP/IP.
If RS485 is used between all SR34is – but PC connection uses TCP/IP – the
only need for proxy in the SR34i is for reaching an SNTP Time server. If there
is a mix of RS485 and TCP/IP – the segment controllers using TCP/IP must
have Proxy function.
4
Select the Network settings tab and enter the IP-address, Netmask and
Gateway.
When powering-up the controller – the IP-address will initially be 10.1.200.1xx
(where xx indicates how the address is set in the controller) – or the one stated
initially when locally setting up SR34i.
Enter the Netmask, which can filter the addresses for messaging on the LAN.
Often the value 255.255.255.0 can be used. Enter the address for Gateway (if
one exists.) This can be used to take care of rejected addresses (filtered by
the Netmask). Enter the IP-address for any Domain Name Server if e-mail
functions are to be used (see Reservation).
5
Enter the actual SMTP server (used in e g the Reservation system).
6
Enter the network identity for the segment controller.
7
Click on the tab Time (if displayed) and enter a correction value (+1, +2, -1, 2 etc). This should correspond to the geographical time zone where SR34i is
installed. (Compare with GMT-time and the setting in an ordinary PC. I e +0 for
Great Britain, +1 for Sweden and +2 for Finland).
8
Click OK and continue with the next segment controller until all the segment
controllers on the system have been named.

Programme names and functions for doors
The next step is to programme names and functions for the connected doors.
1
Start the Installer program.
2
Click the Doors tab. You will see the installed, addressed doors as **C1:D1,
**C1:D2 etc.
Note! If an installed door is missing in the list, it means that the system has no
communication with that door.
3
Select the desired door (if it is not already selected) and click Edit. Tip – You
can also right-click and choose New, Edit or Delete.
4
In the Name field, enter the name for the door. Maximum 32 characters.
5
Check that the proper reader type is shown in the Terminal type field. If you
are using zones, there may be a choice of readers if an EXIT reader is
installed.
6
Click the Relays tab.
7
Select the checkbox Use relay for alarm by-pass if a monostable alarm
(locally) will be used in this door. It can belong to a bistable alarm zone but
cannot physically connect to the Intruder Alarm Control unit.
Monostable function. Used if you want to by-pass the alarm for a short
amount of time (e.g. for an entrance). The by-pass time is equal to the opening
time + the door held warning time. Doors with monostable function cannot
connect and control the zones in an intruder alarm.
8
If the door central shall control a motorlock mark the tick-box for Motorlock.
9
Click the Door control tab.
10 If door monitor contacts are used, click the Door monitor contact exists
check box. Enter whether the contact is closed or open when the door is
closed.
11 If lock monitor contacts are used, click the Lock monitor contact exists
check box. Enter whether the contact is closed or open when the lock is
locked.
12 Enter, by choosing one of the alternatives Lock at once when door is
opened or Lock when door is closed again, how the door is relocked after
having been opened. This will be dependent on the type of lock installed.
13 If IOR6 lift control is used - see chapter Lift Control on page 31.
14 Click OK.
15 Continue with the next door until you have named all doors and described their
function.

If any of the relays in an IOR6 are going to be used in a Reservation system, follow
these instructions:
1
Start the Installer program
2
Click the Door tab. Normally a new IOR6 is displayed as **Cx:Dy in the list of
doors. Mark this, click Edit and step to item 7 below.
If you manually want to create a new IOR6 – proceed as follows:
3
Click New. The Door properties are displayed.
4
Enter the name of the relay central in the Name field.
5
Check and/or enter the address.
6
In the list box Terminal type - select IOR6.
7
Click the IOR6 Relays tab.
8
Mark the tick box Reservation door and/or Reservation machine.
9
Enter the name of each relay with digits. They will later be shown as the name
of the IOR6 + the relay number.
E g if the IOR6 is named “Washing room” and relay 3 it is shown as Washing
room:3
10 Click on the list box on each relay and activate them as follows:
•
Reservation – Door. Means it will be used as an ordinary door opening
relay and is activated for a specified opening time
•
Reservation – Machine. Means that this relay is activated the whole time
the object is booked (e g a washing machine).
11 Click OK.
Programme IOR6 for time control
In case you want to use the relays as a simple timer function, you set up the IOR6
as above but mark the tick-box Time controlled and select Time controlled in the
list boxes.
These relays will be displayed in the Entro program and allow for choosing
individual time schedules for them.
The system allows for separate opening time for the relays as well as relays 1 – 4
which can be activated via input signals (remote opening).
24
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Programme the IOR6 for special functions
The relay central can be used for a range of special functions. These are at the
moment:
•
Output for summary alarm (impulse)
•
Input for monitoring a power failure signal (e g battery)
•
Input for monitoring an “Emergency opening” signal to open all doors.
•
Input for activating a relay (Exit button).
Note! Summary alarm is not possible in an IOR6 used for lift control applications.
You must use another IOR6 in these cases.
The settings for this you find in the Installer – Doors where you mark the actual
IOR6 (or creates a new). There are separate tabs for relays and inputs.
Summary alarm – output
Proceed as follows:
6
Mark the tick box Summary alarm in the tab Relays.
7
Every relay in the IOR6 can optionally be configured for generating an output
signal. The first time you select in list-box and select summary alarm a new
menu is opened.
8
You then select for each relay an event filter to control the relay. Read more
about filters in the section Event and door filters on page 60.
9
Select for how long time the relay shall be active.
Power failure warning - input
Inputs can be setup to monitor signals from power supplies. Often used when a
battery-backup power supply is installed. EG A signal can be sent from the PSU
when the mains falls and batteries are used.
Proceed as follows:
1
Click the tab Inputs.
2
Click the list-box and choose Power failure.
Emergency opening – input
An input can activate a function to set all doors unlocked. Usual when a fire alarm
shall open doors.
Do like above – but select Emergency opening instead.
Exit button - input
It is possible to set an input to activate a relay at a certain time. E g using a
remotely open reservation door or allow for pushing a button in lift.
Do like above but select Exit button for corresponding relay.

Programme zones for reservation object
1
Start the Installer program and click the Zone tab then click New.
For new zones a wizard is invoked which will help you programme the required
functions. For existing zones the tabs are shown (displaying the same
information).
2
Enter the name of the object in the field Name.
3
Select Reservation object and click Next.
4
Mark Available doors (card readers) in the left windows. All existing doors
and IOR6 relays in Bewator Entro are displayed and selected doors appear in
right window.
5
Select the Main Reader for this object – i e the actual reservation reader.
6
Click OK.
Repeat for any other new reservation objects to programme.
If any relay central IOR6 are used in the reservation object you set up these
according to the section Programme IOR6 for Reservation system.
Supplementary parameters for reservation are programmed in the Zone tab of the
Entro program.
Random allotment of similar reservation objects
If several similar objects are to be available for reservation, you can randomly
allocate them to minimise the wear on individual equipment.
An example of this might be a laundry room with a couple of washing machines,
where each is an object, which will be controlled by a relay in an IOR6 (machine
control). All these individual objects are then grouped together and can be treated
as one common, grouped object. The users are then allotted some of these
individual objects when a reservation is done.
To create a grouped zone:
1
Create the individual objects as above.
2
Select the same Main Reader for all objects.
3
Select an IOR6 relay (as machine control) to control the object (e g a washing
machine).
4
Finally you create a new object but select Group of Reservation Objects
instead and mark the actual objects to group.
Doing this, will result in the main parameters (e g the maximum number of
reservations) being the same for all objects.
26
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Alarm control in a reservation object
If you install an intruder alarm in premises that are also using reservation, you can
use the card reader for alarm control in both monostable and bistable mode. You
use a DC21 for this.
Monostable mode
This method requires that the DC22 used in the door must be set up for
monostable mode. In the tab Relays (in the door properties in the Installer
program), mark the tick-box Use the relay for alarm by-pass.
The alarm by-pass relay will change state during the Opening time + the Door Held
Warning Time - and will the automatically fall back.
Bistable mode
Note that this method differs somewhat from the way Bewator Entro normally treats
intruder alarm control (with alarm zones).
This mode will activate or deactivate an alarm section in the intruder alarm.
Connection is done to the alarm by-pass relay in the DC22. Be sure that the tickbox Use the relay for alarm by-pass in the Relays tab is not marked.
Note! The actual zone in the intruder alarm can only be managed from this door.
Activation is performed with an alarm button connected to the Alarm button input
of the DC22.
Deactivation is accomplished by a granted access to the reservation object.
Usually the security level Card or Card+PIN will apply.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
27
Programme Intruder Alarm zones
Bewator Entro offers different methods to turn on a bi-stable intruder alarm zone:
•
Using a valid card at the door terminal.
•
Using a pushbutton connected to the Alarm button input.
•
Using an external timer connected to the Alarm button input.
•
Using a Bewator Entro Alarm time schedule (automatic).
•
Use the intruder alarm manoeuvre functions. The alarm panel status signal
is used to “follow” the status of the alarm central (feedback).
To turn off the alarm; following methods are valid:
•
Using a valid card at the door terminal.
•
Use the intruder alarm manoeuvre functions. (The alarm panel status signal
is connected to the alarm input).
Note 1! Remember that any zones (e g Alarm zones) will work best if they reside
in the same sub-net when several SR34i use TCP/IP (between related SR34i).
Note 2! Remember that any DC22s configured for monostable alarm cannot be
wired for controlling any zone in the intruder alarm.
In cases where only one door is used to control an intruder alarm, you must still
create an alarm by-pass zone for that door. Note that an alarm by-pass zone can
be combined with both roll call and entrance limitation - but not with anti-pass back.
1
Start the Installer program and click the Zones tab, then New.
For new zones a wizard is invoked which will help you programme the required
functions. For existing zones the tabs are shown (displaying the same
information).
Tip – You can also right-click and choose New, Edit or Delete.
2
Type the name of the zone in the Name field.
3
Select Alarm zone. You will also see any other functions this zone can be
used for.
4
Click Next. In the Entry doors/Available box, select the door/s to be included
in the alarm by-pass zone.
5
Click Next.
6
Select the door, which is physically connected to the intruder alarm control
unit.
7
In the Alarm by-pass relay operation list box, select the alarm control
method to be used.
Bistable function. Used if you want to fully control the intruder alarm. You
may deactivate the alarm (after it has been activated) by using your card at the
reader and entering your PIN code. To activate the alarm, press B and use
your card at the reader (or B + card + PIN if this security level applies). You
can use a push button (if fitted) connected to the alarm activation input of the
DC22. Automatic alarm activation can be achieved by using a specific time
schedule for alarm control.
Bistable pulse. This alarm by-pass method is similar to bistable function, but
instead of the output remaining operated, a short pulse is generated for both
the switch-on and switch-off operations.
28
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
8
In the Alarm activation warning time field, enter a duration for how long a
warning buzzer should sound before the alarm is activated (between 0 - 1000
seconds = 16.5 minutes). The buzzer warns people still in the building that the
alarm is about to be activated. If you enter 0 seconds the alarm by-pass relay
changes its state immediately – without any buzzer warning.
During this time the pre-warning alarm relay output will change state in all
DC22 included in the actual alarm zone.
9
Select if the Exit button is allowed to abort the alarm activation cycle.
10 Choose which Time Schedule will be used for time controlled alarm
activation. If you do not select any you have to manually activate it – or use an
external signal (connected to the input for alarm activation).
If you have not created time schedules (in the Entro program) – you click on
the clock icon and select New, Edit or Duplicate a time schedule.
11 Click Next.
12 Mark the tick box Use the ALARM BUTTON for ASF if the intruder alarm’s
status signal will be connected. Then choose the logic Normally open or
Normally closed. This signal connects to the Alarm input in the DC21. It tells
Entro that the Intruder Alarm has been activated (or deactivated).
13 In the field Timeout for ASF you write the time in seconds, Bewator Entro will
wait for the status signal – before it is seen as an activation failure. In this case
Bewator Entro will go back to normal state (and accept normal accesses).
14 Mark the tick box LED Control to define how the red LED at the door terminal
will be controlled. Either the LED is controlled by the feedback signal - or
another external signal could be connected. This is the case if the red LED
needs to flash in some way.
•
If choosing ASF – you also select how long time the red LED will be lit
(after alarm activation.)
•
If you do not choose the ASF function – an external signal could still be
connected. In this case choose only LED Input.
15 If you click on Adjust (at LED input) you can adjust the time to determine if the
external signal from the alarm system should light or flash the red LED on the
door terminal. Default (and maximum) value is 3.2 seconds. If it should flash –
this period should be slightly longer than the pulse cycle of the external signal.
16 Click OK.
Decide on security levels for alarm control
1
Start Entro program and click on Zone tab.
2
Click on Settings.
3
Select the security level for activating and deactivating the intruder alarm.
Click on the list box and choose Card or Card+PIN.
Note! This selection will be set for all Alarm zones you create.
4
Click OK.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
29
Other type of zones
In the same way as an alarm zone is created one or more doors can form another
type of zone. These could be:
•
Anti pass back zone
•
Roll call zones
•
Entrance limitation zones.
•
Interlock zone (two doors)
Follow these steps to programme zones, if required.
1
Start the Installer program and click the Zones tab, then New.
For new zones a wizard is invoked which will help you programme the required
functions. For existing zones the tabs are shown (displaying the same
information).
Tip – You can also right-click and choose New, Edit or Delete.
2
Type the name of the zone in the Name field.
3
Select the desired zone type. You will also see any other functions this zone
can be used for.
4
Follow the instructions for the selected zone type below.
Note! You can also use sub-addressing technique when creating zones and
selecting readers. This applies to reader type BCLINK, who can be addressed as
ENTRY or EXIT when connected to the same door central.
Anti-pass back/Roll call
As an anti-pass back zone is created a roll call zone is created as well. You can
however create zones that are roll call zones only. The only difference between roll
call and anti-pass back is that anti-pass back means that the card will be
blacklisted if a person does not use his card to leave a zone he has previously
entered.
This is how to create an anti-pass back or roll call zone:
1
In the Entry doors/Available box, select which is reader IN.
Note! The same reader can be an IN reader to one zone and an OUT reader
to another.
2
In the Exit doors/Available box, select which is reader OUT.
3
If you have created an Anti-pass back zone – also start Entro program, select
the Zone tab and click Settings.
4
Click the Anti-pass back tab and control the method of removing any blocking
of anti-pass back violation. (Factory setting is automatic un-blocking in 10
minutes.)
30
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Entrance limitation
When you create this type of zone you then have to decide which access groups
will be able to enter the zone. You will also need to specify the counter for each
person.
1
In the Entry doors/Available box, select the doors to be included in the zone.
2
Click OK.
3
Start the Entro program and click the Zones tab.
4
Mark the name of the entrance limitation zone and click on Edit.
5
Click on Entrance limitation and select restriction type (both types can be
selected).
•
Decrement entries counter. Means that a certain number of entries are
granted in doors included in this zone. Later, in Bewator Entro, one or
more access groups should be created with restricted access to these
doors. Finally, the number of granted entries can be specified for each
person.
•
Limited access to this zone (e.g. twice a day). If this alternative is
selected, go to the Settings of limited access box and select the
desired time restriction, e.g. twice a day. If needed, access can be limited
further by choosing restrictions per time interval.
Note! If more than one entrance limitation zone is created, only one zone can have
limited access.
Interlock zone
If you create an interlock zone (with two doors) you must be sure that the doors
have door monitor contacts mounted. Then do like this:
1
Create a new zone in the Installer program.
2
Select Interlock.
3
Select the two doors.
4
Exit.
Regardless which doors you select, the function is strongly dependant of how the
readers and exit buttons have been mounted.
The most common may be, that there are readers at both doors into the zone that
will unlock the “second” door automatically, as soon the first is closed.
Another example is that the “second” door instead has an exit button (into the
zone). In this case the next door will not unlock automatically – you will have an
exit button (out) mounted at that door. In doubt – please contact Bewator.

Lift Control with IOR6
When applied to lifts, Bewator Entro can be used to restrict access to the different
floors in a building. For lift control up to 32 IOR6 relay centrals can be connected to
the Bewator Entro system, which means that altogether 192 floors can be
controlled.
Note that neither IOR6 nor its master reader can be included in zones.
1
Start the Installer program
2
Click the Door tab. Normally a new IOR6 is displayed as **Cx:Dy in the list of
doors. Mark this, click Edit and step to item 7 below.
If you manually want to create a new IOR6 – proceed as follows:
3

10 Click on the list box for each relay and activate them.
11 Click OK.
12 Click the tab Doors and mark the terminal intended as a Master for the IOR6.
Tip! A suitable name for the master door terminal is e.g. ”Lift, floor”. Door
terminals are named on the Doors tab.
13 Click on Edit and click the tab Lift Control and mark the IOR6 -units that will
be controlled by this terminal.
14 Click OK.
In Bewator Entro, the numbered floors (relays) are shown on the Access groups
tab, in the door list under the name of the master reader. This way, it is very easy
to select the floors to which the group should have access.
It is also possible to activate the relays according to the time schedule applied for
the actual master reader. You find the set up for this in the IOR tab in the Door
menu (Bewator Entro). You mark the tick-boxes in the time zone column for the
relay to be activated. Relay 1 – 4 in every IOR6 can also be activated via a signal
to exit button input (remote opening).

positions 9-16 on the magnetic strip, or the last 8 positions if fewer than
16. (Standard Bewator cards are encoded like this).
•
If other cards are to be used and will be read differently, click Custom.
Then enter from which digit position on the magnetic strip data should be
read and how many digits should be read (8 at the most). Some newer
readers can also read 16 digits. You should consult with Bewator if you
are in any doubt about this.
Select in which way the digits shall be presented in Entro.
Personal code without card
Generally, PIN code is used together with a card – during the Card + PIN security
level. However, Bewator Entro offers each user the possibility of choosing a PIN
code instead of a personal card. Note however that activating this function
disables Group code.
This is how to activate the function:
1
Start the Installer program, choose System settings on the System menu.
2
Click the Personal Code tab.
3
Choose the Use of personal code without cards alternative.
4
Enter the desired number of digits to be used (4-8) in the PIN code. Any userchoosing PIN without card must choose a code consisting of the number of
digits chosen here.
5
Click OK.
Changing red LED function on readers
By default, the red LED is used to indicate an active alarm zone and will be lit on
readers those are members of an alarm zone, once the alarm system is armed.
To disable this function and use the red LED for door locked indication, please
proceed as follows:
1
Start the Installer program, choose System settings on the System menu.
2
Click on the Reader red LED tab.
3
Check the box Use red LED for door locked indication.
4
Click OK.
Note! This setting affects all readers on the system that are using BCLINK or
RS485 connection (i.e. not Clock & Data readers). If this is checked it will not be
possible to monitor alarm system status. We recommend not checking it if alarm
zones are used.

Dynamic IP address (DHCP) and dynamic DNS
Some network applications requires the SR34i to be able to use dynamic IPaddresses and where every controller is referred as a “name” and that the SR34i
itself can perform a login (to the ISP).
This chapter describes specifically how to achieve this. There are some examples
shown.
Background
Dynamic IP-addresses
In earlier versions of the Entro software, the SR34i is supposed to be addressed
with a static IP-address – which is still the preferred method as long as the local
area network (LAN) allows for this. (Think of a having the same telephone number
all the time). Static IP-addresses are both faster and more secure.
In some facilities only one Internet Service Provider (ISP) is contracted, offering
only accounts and connections using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol). This means that the host environment (at the ISP) ”lease out” an IPaddress for a short time, therefore the IP-address can be changed when the ISP
renews the lease time. (We describe further on how this mechanism works in
Entro).
As IP-addresses are not static, there must be a function that refers to a fixed name
which can be “translated” to a concept the Internet can still understand – i e IPaddresses. This function is generally called DNS (Domain Name Service) and can
be seen as a “name directory” with IP-addresses. The directory normally resides
with the ISP and will itself also be accessed through an IP-address (which normally
is supported together with the leased IP-addresses).
E g a web browser can use the name www.bewator.com instead of the IP-address
to Bewator. This works as long as the www.bewator.se always have the same IPaddress (i e the DNS supersedes the need for remembering the IP-address to
Bewator home page).
When DHCP is used – and the ISP often changes the connected users’/computers’
leased IP-address – also the DNS must be updated with new information. This is
called dynamic DNS (DDNS) – and means that equipment can ”ask” this service
for the latest IP-address for a specific name.
E g Think of changing your telephone number sometimes (because the amount of
telephones are limited and an own line with a fixed number is more expensive).
Still your friends have to be informed about the change – the telephone directory
must be updated – each time the name is changed.
Login
The Internet Service Provider (ISP) sometimes needs to be sure that it is an
authenticated user (SR34i) before any communication can be allowed. This
requires a login with User name and Password. This is setup in each SR34i. Note
that login procedures can be used/required even if static IP-addresses are used.
34
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Prerequisites
The following chapter describes the requirements needed to get different
configurations working in a Bewator Entro system. See also further chapters on
how the installation is performed.
Note 1! The End Users/Buyers IT-manager should always participate in the
planning of a TCP/IP based Entro system. General knowledge about networking
is also recommended.
Note 2! It might be convenient to have all SR34i available in front of you for
DHCP software set up before mounting them in the correct place.
Simplified you can use handled IP-addresses in three different ways:
1
All SR34i have static IP-addresses (decided by IT-manager or ordered from
ISP).
2
One SR34i has static IP-address (with name directory) – all others normally
get leased, dynamic addresses (DHCP).
3
All SR34i gets dynamic addresses (DHCP).
Static IP-addresses
Static IP-addresses can exist in both local area networks and/or where also the
Internet is used (e g for reservation functions). Some ISP unfortunately do not
allow for using static IP-addresses.
In a local area network environment (in a company installation no special
arrangements are needed), the only aspect is how ”isolated” the security system
should be compared to an office network. I e if any routers, firewalls or similar
software are separating the Bewator Entro from any other network equipment.
Of course the same applies for an apartment building if using the same type of
network, or a company installation can use the advantage of the DHCP functions
described in next section.
E g a SR34i can get a fixed IP-address (from IT-manager) and act as a host for the
other SR34i, leasing the IP from an internal DHCP-server in the company.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
35
Dynamic IP addresses
At the moment few apartment buildings have a complete local area network
installed. Instead an ISP offers different types of connection, broadband, cable or
telephone modem and every tenant uses the Internet for communication to/from
his home computer.
To get Bewator Entro running in an environment where DHCP and Login are used
– some prerequisites must be fulfilled.
1
At least one ISP account (and physical connection) must exist. The goal is that
every SR34i shall be able to access the Internet as well as being accessed
from outside. Dependant on the ISP this can be offered in different ways.
2
The function for ”dynamic” DNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) must be
established. The ”Name directory” can the be stored in one of two possible
places:
•
One dedicated SR34i will act as ”Dynamic DNS” requiring a static IPaddress from the ISP, so that other SR34i’s and the PC, know where the
name directory is. The chosen SR34i will still be able to control door
environments.
•
An externally offered public service called DynDNS.org is used to store the
directory with network identities and IP-addresses.
In this case an account with User name and Password has to be
requested from this organisation.
At the moment five different names are offered free-of-charge and five
SR34i can immediately be used. If more SR34i are to be used an
additional 20 names can be ordered for approx. $10 annual fee
(December 2004).
On the following pages two examples of how the IP-addresses can be managed.
Configuring of DynDNS.org
Today, (December 2004) the instructions to configure an account with dyndns.org.
are as follows,
1
Create a new account (User name and Password).
2
If you have your own domain you select Custom DNS – otherwise select
Dynamic DNS. These choices will later be referred to in Entro.
3
Choose among the available domain names. If you chose dynalias.net an
SR34i will get the network identity Identity1.dynalias.net.
It will be easier if you already have a list of network identities for all SR34i
available. Note that this is not the same as the name of the controllers (as
shown in a event log).
4
Carry on entering the identities for the remaining SR34i.
5
Finished.
You can read more about this on their web site by browsing to, www.dyndns.org

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Example where SR34i manage IP-addresses
This solution requires at least one SR34i with static IP managing the “name
directory” for all. (A separate Entro system can also use this dedicated SR34i for
IP managing).
This method can be ideal for companies having a spare, static IP-address.

Updated when a new IP
is leased.
The following example shows what steps are performed when an SR34i #2 wants
to communicate with SR34i #1:
n
Segment controller #2 only knows the network identity for requested controller
(Identity1.domain.com). Because communication only takes place when the
IP-address is known – it has to send request for valid IP-address’ for
Identity1.domain.com. Because the SR34i (storing the name directory) has a
known IP-address – the request is directly sent to this.
o
A ”name search” of Identity1.domain.com is done and the valid IP-address
for Segment controller #1 is returned.
p
Now the message is sent from controller #2 to controller #1.
This sequence may be repeated every time any communication is established
between the controllers. In principle a ”name search” of IP-addresses works as a
chain reaction. I e every piece of equipment will search in his DNS, searching in his
etc – until the identity is known.
If the ISP leases a new IP-address for any SR34i – that SR34i reports this to the
SR34i storing the name directory.
Despite the SR34i’s embedded name directory performing the search of IPaddresses, the information about the ISPs DNS must be entered, because this is
used when requesting the e-mail server IP-address.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer

Example when DynDNS.org manages IP-addresses
This method means that an account (with domain name) managing the “name
directory” must be requested (and signed) with DynDNS.org.

(Identity1.domain.com). Because communication only takes place when the
IP-address is known – it has to send request to the specified DNS for a valid
IP-address for Identity1.domain.com.
o
Dependant of the DNS having searched and ”remembers”
Identity1.dynalias.net and its IP-address or not, yet further searching must
be done (to DynDNS). In principle a ”name search” of IP-addresses works as
a chain reaction. I e every piece equipment will search in his DNS, searching
in his etc – until the identity is known.
p
When ”name search” of Identity1.dynalias.net is completed, a valid IP-address
for Segment controller #1 is returned to the controller asking.
q
Now the message is sent from controller #2 to controller #1.
This sequence may be repeated every time any communication is established
between the controllers.
If the ISP leases a new IP-address for any SR34i – that SR34i reports this to the
DynDNS.

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Installation and setup of DHCP
No new system components need to be installed but you should have the following
information handy before starting to programme:
•
Physical address (knobs) for SR34i (between 001 and 016).
•
Suggested name of the segment controller (defined by the User). This will
also be displayed in the event log (e g Controller House 1).
•
Network identity for controllers (e g Identity1.dynalias.net)
•
Information about dynamic DNS (either static IP for SR34i – or an account
with user name + password at DynDNS.org).
Basic configuration of database
We recommend that you start from a temporary solution that works with static IPaddresses in the SR34i, and then convert to dynamic when all information is set
and programmed.
You can also wait with mounting the SR34i and instead have them in front of you
and if necessary connect them to each other. The software setup is much easier if
you can connect each controller via RS232 (see below).
Several parameters in the Entro database must be set to fit into a network
application based on DHCP. Every SR34i will at power-up (after delivery) get an
IP-address which probably doesn’t suit the rest of the network. Therefore we
recommend that the basic parameters are prepared in the PC and the downloaded
to the SR34i via RS232 serial cable.
Note! The programming of the SR34i is done manually and one of the SR34i
must be connected to a COM-port in a PC. Be sure to have the necessary RS232
cables between the SR34i and the PC available.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
39
Customise the database for DHCP
You must now decide on how the segment controller should communicate with
each other. All SR34i using TCP/IP must have the Proxy tick box marked.
Proceed as follow to allow for DHCP-function.
1
Start the Installer program; choose System settings on the System menu.
2
Click the Network tab and the tick box Use DHCP for one or more
controllers. Note that still some may use static IP-address.
3
When you have made your selection above yet another dialog box is shown
where you select one of the following:
•
Use an SR34i as dynamic DNS server and enter the IP-address.
•
Use DynDNS.org and enter the Account type, User name and
Password.
The screen shot shows a setup where DynDNS is used for managing the
IP-addresses.
4
OK.
40
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Decide on network settings for SR34i
When the system allows for DHCP in SR34i some more settings must be
considered.
When DHCP is selected, every controller automatically gets an IP-address and a
general DNS (used for later search of IP-address to DynDNS.org).
Proceed as follows:
1
Start Installer and select an SR34i in the tab Controllers.
2
Click Edit - or double-click the name.
3
Go to the Network tab and mark the tick-box Obtain an IP address
automatically.
4
Enter in the field Identity the name for the controller. If DynDNS is used it
might be e g House1.dyndns.net, Identity1.dynalias.net or similar.
5
If the controller also is used for confirmations in a reservation system, enter
the name of the e-mail server. This is obtained from the ISP. E g
mail1.telia.com.
6
Click OK.
7
Repeat the steps for each SR34i using DHCP.
The screen shot below shows the above settings.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
41
Decide on login for SR34i
Some Internet Service Providers (ISP) requires a login. In Entro this means that
every SR34i must be able to login with User name and Password.
More information about the requirements should be available from the ISP.
Note! DHCP and/or login are not dependent of each other.
Proceed as follows:
1
Start Installer and select an SR34i in the tab Controllers.
2
Click Edit - or double-click the name.
3
Go to the tab Network login.
4
Enter User name.
5
Enter Password.
6
If the controller has a static IP address, you enter the IP-address to the DNSserver – otherwise not.
7
Click OK
8
Repeat the steps for each SR34i using login.
The screen shot below shows the above settings.

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Apartment building – example 1
We assume that an apartment organisation shall install a new Bewator Entro
system in three different houses, where we use three SR34is. We now describe
how the controllers are configured with DHCP and we use DynDNS because the
ISP does not allow static IP addresses. Also Internet login is required for
communication.
A laundry room also exists in one of the buildings where the Entro reservation
system shall be used, the tenants will use their home PC to make bookings and get
confirmations.
The requirements for this are:
•
A LAN must exist in each building where SR34i is installed.
•
An Internet account must be available to allow for identities for the SR34is.
•
One SR34i must also have the CF8 flash memory installed for reservation
functions.
•
The final system will have an administration PC installed.
The three controllers can be prepared in advance (before mounting) because they
include a battery keeping the information (database) until the final installation is
done.
Follow these steps:
1
Sign up for an account with domain name dynalias.net, User name
MyAccount and the password MyPassword.
2
Apply these settings to the SR34i:
SR34i
3
Name (in log)

2
Controller House 2
house2.dynalias.net <user2> + <password>
3
Controller House 3
house3.dynalias.net <user3> + <password>
Install the software in the PC according to chapter Basic setup of database (for
DHCP). Enter House1.dyndns.net as network ID for the first controller (that the
PC will use for communication).
4
Configure according to chapter Customise the database for DHCP and select
Login and Use DHCP for one or more controllers.
5
Select the alternative to report to DynDNS.org and enter the Account type
Dynamic DNS, User name MyAccount and password MyPassword and exit.
6
Programme all SR34i manually with the New button and enter name etc.
7
Proceed with the tab Network and mark the tick-box Obtain an IP address
automatically (also the DNS address will then be allotted).
8
Enter the Identity according to the above table. I e House1.dynalias.net etc.
Simultaneously you enter the name of the ISPs e-mail server (e g
mail1.telia.com) to prepare the controller to send confirmations.
9
Click the tab Network login and enter the details <user1> + <password> and
exit.
10 Set up all SR34i in the same way.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
43
Download database to SR34i
When the information for all SR34i and their network settings is saved in the PC,
you must be sure the database is downloaded to each of the controllers. This is
made through RS232 because the network is not yet running, and is adequately
made when the overall system software is installed.
1
Jumper to correct address in SR34i, power-up and connect only the first
controller via RS232 to COM port in PC.
2
Start Installer and wait for the database to download (the icons become green)
and shut down the program complete (right-click on the icon and select Close
Entro).
3
Address, connect and download to the rest of the controllers each at a time via
RS232.
4
Mount the CF8 card in chosen SR34i. (Be sure you have the correct CF8
content)
5
Mount all controllers in the correct place and verify that local area network
sockets are available (and connected to the ISP).
Door controllers and readers can of course be mounted and connected to
SR34i when setup is performed.
6
Finished.
Connect PC and other equipment
1
Connect the ordinary PC and verify that communications are working.
2
As soon as the Installer program communicates with all SR34i, all door
controllers will be displayed on the screen. Carry on and programme these
according to the manuals.
Because the PC software knows every SR34i, it discovers immediately if some
SR34i do not communicate.
3
If the reservation terminal InfoPoint IP810 shall be used – this must also be
setup according to its manual. E g you select that it will use DHCP and will get
its IP-Address automatically.
4
Programme all necessary settings for the Entro system according the ordinary
manual. Do not forget to change the encryption key.
5
Now also the End Users must be informed about the IP-address
(alternatively the www-address) to where the web browser should search for –
to make reservations.
6
Finished

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming - Installer
Apartment building – example 2
In this example the ISP allows for one (1) static IP for one SR34i whilst the rest will
be allotted dynamic IP (DHCP). This might also be the case in a company where
the number of ”internal” IP-addresses is limited.
We also assume the login is not necessary to use the network.
Because the IP-address in one SR34i will not be changing, we can let other
controllers dynamically report any changes to this dedicated SR34i. I e this SR34i
contains the name directory (with IP-addresses).
The network IDs (names) for the different SR34i’s will be dependant of the ISP
(house1.telia.com, house1.swipnet.se or similar).
Proceed as follows:
1
Install the software in the PC according to chapter Basic setup of database (for
DHCP). Enter House1.dyndns.net as network ID for the first controller (that the
PC will use for communication) and select COM-port.
2
Select the SR34i to be used and enter the IP-address. This SR34i will store
names and IP for other controllers
3
Configure according to chapter Customise the database for DHCP and select
Login and Use DHCP for one or more controllers.
4
Programme all SR34i manually with the New button and enter name etc.
5
Carry on with the tab Network and enter (for the first SR34i) the static IPaddress, Netmask and Gateway. (This information you should have obtained
from the ISP or IT-manager).
6
Whether the controller has a static IP or not you have to enter the address to
the domain name server (DNS). This is necessary to get e-mail confirmations
in reservation to work. Note that also this IP-address should be obtained from
ISP/IT-manager).
7
Enter the Identity according to table above. I e House1.dynalias.net etc.
8
Enter the name of the ISPs e-mail server (e g mail1.telia.com) to prepare the
controller to send confirmations
9
Finally perform action according to preceding chapters Download database to
SR34i and Connect PC and other equipment.
10 Finished.

On-line, off-line and database information
In the bottom right of the box there are two indicators:
If the text ON LINE and a green indicator are displayed, the PC and the Bewator
Entro programme are connected to the access control system.
If the text OFF LINE and a red indicator are displayed, Entro has no contact with
readers and controllers. This means that the information registered in the PC does
not reach the segment controllers.
If the text DB UP TO DATE (DB = database) and a green indicator are displayed,
all segment controllers have the same information as the PC.
If the text DB OUT OF DATE and a red indicator are displayed, the segment
controllers do not have the same information as the PC. Note that a certain amount
of time may pass before the information has reached all segment controllers and
that the system has to be ON LINE for this to be possible.
You can also look at the status bar to see how far the transferring of data to the PC
has gone.

However – there are two nice shortcuts sometimes available in the software, to
help creating, editing or deleting information.
Shortcut to Access groups
Shortcut to Time schedule
E g when you create a new person, click on the shortcut Access group if you have
not yet created a suitable one. In the same manner you can click further to Time
schedule if you want to create or edit a time schedule. In all cases you will come
back to the previous step when you exit the menus.

Time schedules – general
Bewator Entro uses three types of time schedules:
•
Access Control (used for doors setting and access groups)
•
Intruder alarm zones (automatic activation of intruder alarms)
•
Reservation intervals (see more in the chapter Reservation)
Time schedules – access control
The first thing to do is to identify the different types of working hours or other time
divisions in the premises. Then decide what time schedules are to be used. Finally,
decide what time zones are to be used within each time schedule.
1
Start the Entro program.
2
Click the Time schedules tab.
3
Click New.
For new time schedules a wizard is invoked which will help you programme
the required functions. For existing time schedules the tabs are shown
(displaying the same information).
The wizard also allows for directly programming the Half days, Holidays and
holiday periods. See Enter specific half days, public holidays and holiday
periods section.
4
In the Name field, enter the name of the time schedule e.g. Office Hours, and
press TAB.
5
In the Name field of Time zone 1 square, enter the name of the first time
zone, e.g. Work Hours, and press TAB.
6
In the Name field of Time zone 2 square, enter the name of the second time
zone, e.g. Lunch Time, and press TAB.
7
The cursor is placed in the From field far left, next to the Mon. (Monday) text
in the Time zone 1 square.
8
Enter the first time interval for Mondays. Enter the time by typing four digits in
succession, e.g. 0800 for 8.00. Continue with the next time interval, if any.
9
Press TAB until the cursor is placed in the first From field in the Time zone 2
square.
10 Enter the time intervals defined for Time zone 2.
Note 1! The time intervals must not overlap. If one interval in Time zone 1
ends with 1200, the following time interval in Time zone 2 must start with 1201.
The unspecified hours i e the remaining time, are always called Other time. This
time zone is the third time zone.
Tip! If you create separate time schedules for Doors and Access groups, you can
easily change times for the security level of the door – or change times for only
the authorities of different access groups

Event and door filters
Event and door filters are used in different ways in the Entro environment:
•
To control common alarm outputs in the IOR6 (and pop-ups on the
screen)
•
Reduce the amount of events stored on hard disk.
•
Control which events and door symbols to be displayed on the screen for
a particular System user.
•
Searching in the event archive.
Normally the system uses a standard event filter with recommended settings and
displays all doors graphically on the connected PC. You do not need to change
anything.
The screen shot below shows a typical setting for the door monitor type of events.

Encryption functions in Local Area Network
Bewator Entro uses integral encryption software when communicating in network
environments. This higher security level is necessary - especially when Entro is
installed in Internet applications.
The user of Bewator Entro should regularly change the crypto key needed by the
encryption algorithm. The crypto key will always be stored in the database. The
algorithm uses 128-bit level.
Note! The crypto key must be written down and kept in a safe place!
If the crypto key is not correct the communication is not established – and
the system must be completely reset and re-programmed.
Encryption gives higher security
Because of the fact that network use needs an encryption algorithm the security
aspects of a system are improved. At the same time this raises some important
points:
•
Always write down the crypto key as soon as it is changed from the standard!
•
There are no back-doors into the system. I e there is no work-around if the
crypto key is lost.
•
The only way to re-create a system - is to reset it and re-programme the entire
information.
Note! A good idea is to use the default crypto key (used at delivery) until the
system is completely set-up – and then change it.
Change the crypto key
1
Start the Entro program.
2
Click on System and select Change crypto key. A wizard is invoked to guide
you further.
3
Select in which way the crypto key should be created:
•
The System creates the crypto key automatically.
•
You enter the crypto key manually – at least 32 characters. Valid
characters are 0-9, A-F (hexadecimal, upper case).
•
Use a default (which also is used in the SR34i at power-up – if no
database is loaded).
4
Click Next.
5
If you have chosen to enter the crypto key manually – a field appears where
you enter the 32 characters.
6
The entered/generated crypto key is shown. Do not forget to write it down
and keep it in safe place!
7
Click Next – and the new crypto key is sent to all SR34i.
Note! All SR34i must be on-line to make the encryption work.
8
Click OK.

Supplementary information
This section describes a couple of additional settings that you can make in the
system.
Priority group
Using this function you can determine which people should be able to open a door
in case of a communications breakdown in the system. Note that this only applies
for doors controlled by the DC22/DC12 door controllers.
This is how to decide which people should have this authorisation:
1
Choose System settings on the System menu.
2
Click the check box to the left of the person to be included in the group. A tick
is shown in the box and the name is copied to the Priority persons square.
Note! To withdraw the authorisation, double click the name in the Priority
persons square or click the tick.
3
Click OK.
Duress code on/off
With the Duress function activated, a person entering the building is able to enter a
specific code if forced to open the door under threat. Doing so, an alarm signal is
sent to a connected alarm transmitter. When Bewator Entro is delivered the duress
function is deactivated.
This is how to activate the function:
1
Choose System settings on the System menu.
2
Click the Enable duress button. A warning message is displayed.
3
Click Yes to activate the duress function.
Anti-pass back violation
If a person violates anti-pass back, i.e. does not use his card to leave a zone and
then tries to enter the same zone or another zone, the card will be blacklisted. This
function is used to specify for how long the card should be blacklisted.
1
Start the Entro program and choose the Zone tab and Settings.
2
Click the Anti-pass back tab.
3
Choose the desired alternative

Using Bewator Entro
In this chapter, Bewator Entro’s functions are described from the viewpoint of a
person entering the building. How do you get in? How do you set an intruder
alarm? The following sections give answers to these questions and a few others.
Entrance
People entering the building can open a door in several different ways, depending
on the security level:
•
By using their card through the door terminals card reader.
•
By entering a group code
•
By using their card and entering his PIN code
If the card/code is accepted, the green LED is lit and the lock is opened.
If the person entering the door enters the wrong PIN code three times in
succession, the card will be blacklisted and must be re-validated at the PC. To
indicate that a card is blacklisted for this reason, two asterisks (**) are displayed in
front of the person’s name on the Persons tab in Bewator Entro. Double click the
person’s name to withdraw the cancellation.
Switching on and off alarm systems
To be able to activate and deactivate an intruder alarm system, the person must be
a member of an access group with authorisation to activate and deactivate alarms.
Note that certain access groups can have authorisation to activate an alarm only,
while other access groups may only be allowed to deactivate alarms.
Activating an alarm system – with card
1
Press B on the door terminal.
2
Use the card through the reader and enter your PIN code (depends on the
current security level). The alarm is activated.
The door is given the security level chosen in the Installer program (often
Card+PIN security level), irrespective of the security level applying when the
alarm was activated. This security level applies until the alarm is deactivated.
Deactivating an alarm system – with card
1
Read the card at the door terminal’s card reader.
2
Then enter your PIN code (decided by the current security level). When the
alarm is deactivated the door is given the security level according to the
defined time zones.

67
Abort an automatic alarm activation cycle
If the system is set up so that alarm activation is done automatically by a time
schedule – people remaining in the facility are still able to abort an on-going alarm
activating cycle. A warning signal sounds during this time.
However - once the warning time ends there are no possibility to “buy time”.
Instead the alarm is activated immediately.
Proceed as follows:
1
When you hear the warning signal (the alarm will soon be turned on) – find the
nearest door (in the same zone).
2
Use your card – or push the exit button (if allowed).
3
Entro will go back to the normal state – until the next automatic activation is
started.
You can remain in the facility until you hear the warning signal again – and repeat
the steps above.
Entering the duress code
This is what the person entering the building should do if forced to open the door
under threat.
1
Use the card.
2
Enter the ordinary PIN code; only add 1 to the last digit in the code.
Example 1: If the PIN code is 1234, press 1235 instead.
Example 2: If the PIN code is 1239, press 1230 instead.
When a duress code is entered, the door is opened at the same time as the
common alarm output in IOR6 can be activated (duress has to be defined as an
alarm event for this to happen).
Note! Duress works only during the Card + PIN security level.
Setting/changing the PIN code
This is how a user sets/changes their PIN code. (If “Personal Setting” has been
activated.)
1
Press the A button on the door terminal. The yellow LED is lit.
2
Use the access card through the card reader. The yellow LED is lit.
3
Enter the old code. If you have no previous code, enter 0000. The yellow LED
blinks twice.
4
Enter a new code (four digits). The yellow LED blinks twice.
Note! The code 0000 cannot be used.
5
Enter the new code once again.

groups. You can also combine the search concepts and use ”wildcards” and
”jokers” (”*” and ”?”). See the examples on the next page.
2
Enter the desired search criteria.
3
Choose whether the search should be case sensitive. If the check box is
selected and the search criterion is ”smith” the system will not find ”Smith”.
4
If the Match all criteria check box is selected, all entered search criteria must
be matched for the person to be found. This alternative is best when the
search consists of a combination of search criteria. If the check box is empty,
only one of the criteria needs to be matched.
5
Click Search. The name you searched for is displayed on a new, temporary
tab called Search result.
6
You may now, using the Search result tab, change the database information
for this person. Just select the name and click Edit. To remove the person
from the database, click Delete.
If you are not satisfied with the search result, click the Change criteria button. The
Search persons window is redisplayed. The original search criteria are saved for
you to make the necessary changes.
When you are finished you can remove the Search result tab by clicking the
Remove tab button.

To find all persons belonging to a certain access group, simply select the desired
access group. In addition it is also possible to select one or more doors in the lower
frame.
To find all persons by the name of Smith, enter the last name and an asterisk (*),
i.e. Smith*. The asterisk (or wildcard) implies that any character and any number of
characters may be found after the asterisk, the system will find them whatsoever. If
you have registered the persons with the christian name first, enter the asterisk
first, i.e. *Smith.
To find all card numbers beginning with 1234, enter 1234 and an asterisk, i.e.
1234*.
Apart from asterisks, question marks (jokers) can be used in the search criteria,
e.g. if you are not sure how the person spells his or her name. The question mark
represents one character, any character.
Search with right-click on person – or door.
You can mark one person in the list, right-click and select to show authorised
doors.
In the same way you can mark one door and all authorised persons will be
shown.

Bewator Entro User manual — Reservation
Bewator Entro Reservation
Bewator Entro includes reservation functions (e g in sports arenas, tennis courts,
conference rooms etc) and works together with the integrated access control
system.
The System Administrator sets which objects (like card readers/doors) are to be
included and chooses the relevant reservation time schedules.
The users wanting to reserve times can use an ordinary web-browser (like Explorer
or Netscape) and login to the SR34i containing the reservation system.
Alternatively use his/her card in a card reader together with a touch-screen –
depending on how the system is configured.
Note! The Reservation requires that all controllers be of model SR34i (or later).
Integrated Web server
The SR34i has an integrated (embedded) web server function, which is used for
reservation applications. It requires that the dedicated SR34i have a static IPaddress and a permanent connection to the Internet (when Internet is used).
Note! One of the SR34i must be equipped with a Memory card for web
reservation, which will contain the reservation information.

Set the Reservation options (System User)
In the Installer program a reservation object is created which can be a tennis court,
conference room – or similar.
You then choose which card readers (from a table of all installed) to be included in
the object/zone.
There are also possibilities for machine control and door control in reservation
applications.
After that you, in Entro, create one or more reservation time schedules, which
states possible times and days to reserve e g a tennis court. The time schedules
are then named to simplify their use.
The reservations objects are then configured further to fit different needs. E g how
many reservations to book forward – or how many tennis courts there are etc.
In the main Bewator Entro program you decide which objects different access
groups can reserve.
Finally, you decide which access groups and member groups every person
belongs to.
Technically the entire reservation information is stored in an integrated web page
(in a SR34i) with its own IP-address on a network.
The address to this website is <IP-address>/login.html which should be notified
to the users of the Reservation system.
Reservation operation (User)
When all settings are done, reservation can be done in two ways:
•
Login from a web browser in a computer – where the card number and the
PIN code is used as a password and identification.
•
Login at an InfoPoint IP810 where the card number is used for identification.
You then choose the relevant object and enter the times to reserve.
Confirmation of reservation
In the software there are functions to generate an e-mail message to confirm the
reservation to the user. This requires that the Users’ e-mail address is known and
entered into the person’s properties (free field).
Using the reservation object (User)
When you have booked your reservation you just use your card in the normal way.
Depending of the configuration of the system, different levels of access and
possibilities are available. E g you can pass through a door some minutes after the
reserved time (to pick up forgotten items or similar).
82
Bewator Entro User manual — Important concepts Reservation
Important concepts - Reservation
To be able to programme the system you have to be familiar with the following
concepts:
•
Reservation Time schedules
•
Reservation objects
•
Security levels
•
Access Groups
•
Persons and Member groups
Time schedules
Here you programme different schedules for different objects.
The intention is that different access groups can reserve one or more objects
during one or more times – depending on the configuration.
E g two tennis courts have four separate sessions with exactly the same times
during Monday to Friday – but first and last sessions are not available on Saturday
and Sunday.
Example
Tennis court 1: Time schedule: Training session
09:00 - 12:00

Flexible reservation in same interval
The Reservation system also allows for reserving the whole or part of a longer time
interval. E g if you have created an interval for a conference room between 8 AM
and 6 PM, the User can reserve the whole interval – or only 8 AM to 10 AM
alternatively 8 AM to 2 PM. This is called “flexible interval reservation” in the
Bewator Entro.
Bewator Entro User manual — Important concepts Reservation
83
Reservation objects (single)
Reservation objects can consist of facilities with doors, e g sports arenas,
conference rooms - but also other items such as coffee machines. I e something
that can be electrically controlled and have a locking function. These can then be
reserved by different kinds of users (sportsmen, employees etc).
In a reservation object you can also include doors that must be passed before you
reach the reserved object. Note that these doors cannot be used for normal
access.
Reservation objects (grouped)
This concept is used when a random allocation of objects is required. You can also
group several reservation objects together with similar possibilities.
An example of this might be a laundry room with a couple of washing machines,
where each is an object, which will be controlled by a relay in an IOR6 (machine
control). These individual objects are then grouped together and can be treated as
one common, grouped object. The users are then allocated one of these individual
machines when a reservation is done and subsequent use of it.
Machine and door control
In a reservation object, up to 10 IOR6 relays can be included as well as a
traditional card reader at a door –.
For example, a relay can control a machine in such a way that when a person uses
his card, not only the door will be unlocked; but also the machine is enabled to be
started and used during the reserved time – but no longer.
At the same time other relays in the IOR6 may be used to control other reserved
doors (like a drying room), which can be open for access (with defined opening
time) and locks again.
In fact even more relays can be controlled with a time schedule (e g light is on for a
certain time).
Security levels
The security level determines what action is needed to open a door. Because the
reservation function has to know which person is using the objects, only the
following alternatives are possible:
•
Card only. A personal card is to be used in the reader to be able to open the
door. If the card is lost or stolen it is easy to cancel the card.
•
Card + PIN. The door is opened when the access card is used and a personal
code belonging to this particular card has been entered.
In other card readers in the Entro-system other levels can be used – see the Users
Manual.

Bewator Entro User manual — Important concepts Reservation
Access Groups
In a large company with several different departments, you may have to divide the
staff into different access groups. This way you can decide which doors the
different groups should have access to – and during which hours they should have
access to these doors. For example, you can programme that the reception staff
should not have access to the research department during lunch; at the same time
as both the reception staff and the research staff should have access to common
doors during all time zones. Each person may belong to up to six access groups.
In this part you also choose which Reservation object a certain access group can
book.
Persons who always have access to a reservation object – e g caretakers – can
belong to an access group with this functionality.
Persons and Member groups
In addition to every person having his/her own personal card and belonging to at
least on access group, you can also decide on a member group for each person.
Every member group will be considered as equivalent and have the same access
for reserving/changing the same object.
E g in sports club different teams can form a member group who could book,
change or cancel times for each other.

Example 1 of Reservation
To illustrate how a reservation object can be set up, we show an example of
washing machines on a laundry room with one door, where reservation applies
only to the Laundry room door (#1). Outside this door a Bewator InfoPoint IP810
booking terminal is mounted for reservation.
Note that door A does not have to be reserved. This door will be under normal
access control from the Entro system.
Laundry
room
1
Entrance door
A
In the example there is a site with a Laundry room door (card reader #1).
All washing machines can be freely used, but the access to the machines
themselves will be seen as one object. A maximum of two reservations (two
member groups) for two machines can be reserved on this door. The aim is that
only two machines should be used - but nothing prevents someone using both.

Example 2 of Reservation
The example below illustrates some other features included in the reservation
system. Once again we refer to a laundry room. But the washing machines are
grouped in pairs, and are controlled by relays in an IOR6. They are randomly
allotted to users so that only one pair of machines will be activated. This might be
done to distribute the wear and tear of the washing machines.
In this case you create two separate objects each with a dedicated relay (defined
as machine control in the IOR6) – but using the same main reader. Then you group
these together as a superior object, which then is allotted to the users.
Outside the door there is a Bewator InfoPoint IP810 booking terminal allowing for
making new reservations local to the laundry room. I e reservation will be possible
either via a web browser (PC) - or at this terminal.
Note that door A does not have to be reserved. This door will be under normal
access control from the Entro system.

Programming - Reservation
In the Installer program you create zones (forming reservation objects) where a
specific card reader is used for reservation (known as “Main reader”). In addition
you include the readers “on the way” to the object.
In the following section we describe how the System User programme settings and
conditions for different reservation objects (time schedules, access authorities etc)
are set up.
Time schedules
The first thing to do is to identify the times for reserving. In a tennis court there may
be three-hour sessions, which can be booked all the week around – or some other
object only available on weekdays.
In the system there can be 32 time schedules with each 24 intervals for
reservation.
1
Start the Entro program and click the Time schedules tab.
2
Click New.
For new time schedules a wizard is invoked which will help you programme
the required functions. For existing time schedules the tabs are shown
(displaying the same information).
The wizard also directly allows for programming of Half days, Holidays and
Holiday periods. See Enter public holidays and holiday periods in Reservation
section.
3
In the Name field, enter the name of the time schedule e.g. Training sessions.
4
Click New to create a new Interval. A row with suggested fields with From, To
and Weekdays is displayed.
5
Click on the arrow at From and choose time. Press TAB.
6
Click on the arrow at To and choose time. Press TAB.
7
Select the Days when the interval should be valid.
8
Repeat step 4-7 for every new interval.
You can click on Sort to get the intervals sorted.
9
Click OK to save the time schedules.
Set up information for the next time schedule in the same way.
88
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming Reservation
Reservation object
Next step is to programme the Reservation object itself.
1
Start the Entro program and click the tab Zones.
2
Mark the zone and click Edit.
3
Select the Time schedules from the list. Click on the arrow to list available
time schedules.
You can also click on the clock icon to Create, Edit or Copy a reservation time
schedule. Then choose the desired time schedule by clicking the name.
4
Mark if flexible reservation within an interval should be possible. Read more in
the Flexible reservation in same interval section.
5
Click the tab Max nr limits.
6
Decide the Maximum reservations per member group for a certain advance
period. E g to book four training sessions in a month in the same object. Max
value is 60.
7
Enter how many Maximum no of concurrent reservations on the same
object will be allowed. E g if a tennis park has two separate courts but only one
door, two different member groups must still be able to book the same time.
Max value is 99.
8
Choose if even more restrictions should apply. Enter in the field Max nr and
Calendar period the number of reservations (maximum 6) a member group
can make in a certain period (day, week or month).
9
Click the Time related restrictions tab.
10 Enter in the field Max forward reservation time for how long a period booking
is available. E g 31 days. Max value is 365 days.
11 Decide on how many minutes the system waits until an automatic cancel is
done. Enter in the field Automatic cancel time. This gives a delay before
some other Member group can book the same time. Max value is 60 minutes.
12 Enter the allowed Overlap time for accessing the object after the reserved
time. This makes it possible to enter a booked tennis court some minutes later
(due to a traffic jam or similar). Max value is 99 minutes.
13 Enter how long, in hours and minutes must remain of an interval to allow for
a new reservation. Maximum value is 23 hours, 45 minutes.
14 Click OK.
Repeat necessary steps for each reservation object.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming Reservation
89
Enter public holidays and holiday periods in Reservation
Certain day’s reservations might not be available. E g if tennis court is used for a
tournament – or if a golf court has closed for the season.
Note! See also paragraph Service mode for another type of exception.
In the ordinary Entro system there are Public Holidays and Holiday periods, which
allow exceptions from an ordinary week. These can also be used in the reservation
system to inhibit reservation at these times.
In most cases they will not coincide and must be specified for each separate time
schedule – in the Reservation.
To make the system understand that holidays and holiday periods should not be
treated as ordinary working days, this information must be programmed.
Proceed as follows:
1
Start the Entro program. Then click Time Schedules tab.
2
Select the time schedule; click Edit and then the Public Holidays tab.
3
Mark the tick in the Use Global Public holidays – if you prefer to use the
same dates as specified in the main Bewator Entro program.
4
Click New. The Public holidays window is displayed.
5
In the Date field, enter the date of the first holiday, or click the Calendar button
and choose the date. You can have up to 14 days in each time schedule.
6
Click OK. The Public holidays tab is redisplayed with the date filled in.
7
Click New and programme the next holiday accordingly. .
8
Create the Holidays in the same way – but enter both Start and End date.
You can have up to 4 periods in each time schedule.
9
Repeat steps 4-8 for every separate time schedule in the reservation system.
Decide on reservation authorities for access groups
1
Start the Entro program.
2
Click on the tab Access groups
3
Create or select an access group and go to the tab Reservation objects.
If you also select the tick box Caretaker this group will be able to access (and
use) this object 24 hours a day – without any reservation. (Normally you create
a separate access group with this functionality).
4
Select one or more of the available objects to be accessible for this group.
5
Click OK.

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming Reservation
Give persons reservation authorities
In a reservation system it is important that every person has a Member group no
even if it is the same for all persons. Otherwise the person cannot reserve any
times.
Note! We only describe additional information regarding Reservation.
Every person must belong to one or more access groups simultaneously. These
may already been given reservation rights.
If not - you first create a new access group and proceed as follows:
1
Start the Entro program
2
The Person tab is displayed.
3
Mark a person and click on Edit.
4
If you enter a persons’ e-mail address in the Free field, Bewator Entro can
confirm a reservation by sending an e-mail message (if the software is set up
for this). See paragraph Prerequisites for reservation confirmation.
5
Check that the field Member group no is correct. All persons belonging to the
same member group number will automatically have the same rights in the
reservation system. These may be e g training groups, families etc
6
Check or choose correct access group.
Note! Check that the access group allocated to a person has the correct
reservation object associated (see access groups).
7
Click OK.
8
Repeat necessary steps for every person.
Hint! You can simplify the programming of cards/persons even for the reservation
by using the duplicate function described on page 57
Flexible reservation in same interval
In many cases, such as conference rooms, you do not want to be restricted to
reserving one or more short intervals – you would rather have a more flexible way
to reserve times.
The software allows for defining a longer interval (e g 8 AM to 6 PM) where the
user then can reserve a flexible time within this interval. I e you first restrict the total
outer limits (start and stop) but the user can reserve the whole or part of it.
Proceed as follows:
1
Start Entro and click the tab Zones
2
Mark the actual reservation object and click on Edit.
3
Create or Edit the time schedule to be used. Normally this results in fewer - but
longer intervals.
4
Mark the tick box Accept flexible reservation periods on this object.
5
Click OK.

Bewator Entro User manual — Programming Reservation
Using confirmations in Reservation
Bewator Entro can automatically generate an e-mail message to the person
making a reservation (or a cancellation). The texts in these messages are stored in
two files in the CF8 (compact flash) memory card and may be edited but this is
normally not necessary.
The messages also include the IP-address to the web server (SR34i) that sent the
message. This gives an easy way to log in again (for editing reservations).
Note! The name of the SR34i, sending a confirmation, allows only characters
accepted in e-mail addresses. Special, national characters cannot normally be
handled by the e-mail server (ISP).
Prerequisites for confirmations
The Reservation system uses Internet connections that allow for making
reservations on any PC. The prerequisite for this is that the SR34i controller has an
available Internet connection with fixed IP-address.
In addition to this you can set up some parameters, which allow for sending a
confirmation by e-mail to the person doing the reservation.
Note! The following parameters are defined in consultation with the IT-manager.
Proceed as follows:
1
Start the Installer and click the Controllers tab.
2
Mark the controllers, which contains the CF8 and will send the e-mail message
– and click on Edit.
3
Click the TCP/IP Settings tab and check/enter the IP-address to the Domain
Name Server (DNS). This is in fact a server converting the domain name (e g
bewator.com) into a valid IP-address. The DNS often resides with the
contracted Internet Service Provider (ISP) – or in the local area network.
4
Click the E-mail settings tab.
5
Enter the SMTP Server which is the e-mail server handling the outgoing mails.
This often resides with the contracted Internet Service Provider (ISP). The
name may look like smtpserver.swip.net - or similar.
6
Enter the Domain Name that SR34i uses to create a valid sender address.
May be e g bewator.com and is often used by the ISP to further validate the
sender.
7
Click OK.
8
Finally check that each person has a valid e-mail address entered in the free
field of the person’s properties (in Entro).
If you have named the SR34i “Reservation” and enter “bewator.com” as
domain name – the message is sent from the sender address
reservation@bewator.com to the e-mail address entered in the free field on
each person’s properties.
Bewator Entro User manual — Programming Reservation
93
Editing text in the confirmations
The actual texts sent are stored in files CF8 memory card and are named:
•
reservation.txt
•
cancelreservation.txt (Message sent when cancelling)
(Message sent when reserving)
To change these you make use of a suitable PC-adapter for retrieving and storing
the contents of the CF8 memory card. As follows:
1
Place the CF8 in the adapter. (Be careful when connecting the card to avoid
destroying the data). Use the Windows Explorer or similar to find the files.
2
In the folder “LANG” there are a number of language folders (0, 1, 2 etc.).
Locate the file to change.
3
Edit the file and write the text you want to display to the User. You then include
some optional field tags that (at run-time) will get information from the system
(like object, date, time etc.)
If you include e g the tag %pfnm the first name of the person will be displayed.
See example in next section.
4
Store the edited files and place the CF8 in the SR34i Controller.
Example of confirmation
E g write the following text in the file reservation.txt and store the file in the CF8.
%sbj<Reservation confirmation>
Hello %pfnm,
This is an automatic e-mail message that confirms your reservation of
%robn, %rhur:%rmin – %ehur:%emin on %rdat/%rmon.
To change any reservation, log on to %ipme/login.html
If the person’s first name is Thomas and they have reserved the Tennis court 1 on
the 14th of July at 2 – 4 PM, the e-mail message will look like this:
Subject: Reservation confirmation.
Hello Thomas,
This is an automatic e-mail message that confirms your reservation of
Tennis court 1 14:00 – 16:00 on 14/06.
To change any reservation, log on to http:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/login.html.
In a similar way the file cancelreservation.txt can be changed. The table in the next

Bewator Entro User manual — Integrating with external applications (BAPSI)

Integrating with external applications (BAPSI)
General
Normally access control system software is quite proprietary to its system
components and is seldom open for customised applications. This is quite natural
because it is also a security system to be used for controlling e g access to doors
in different kind of facilities.
Bewator Entro can use a well-defined programming interface to communicate with
other, external software packages (like Time & Attendance, Alarm control or
similar). E g to import/export cards, get time stamps or events.
An ordinary TCP/IP link is used for transferring the data between the different
software components.
The external software must be modified/completed according to the specification
we call Bewator All Purpose Socket Interface (BAPSI). Remember, this not a
program just guidelines to the programming interface.
With BAPSI this is done in a specified and safe (encrypted) way that still keeps the
access control system on a secure and integral level.
The specification can be requested from Bewator.
What is BAPSI used for?
Normally the User interface in access control software allows for functions like card
registering, time schedule programming and standard event logging (and
searching).
Using BAPSI, custom application software can take advantage of
sending/receiving messages to/from the access control system – and easily add
new functions to the overall system. This could be Time& Attendance, Reservation
systems etc.

At the moment there are already systems running in the reservation applications
area – using the BAPSI software interface. In this case the supplier of the external
reservation software made a modification to their software module, which writes
data into a file – and Bewator developed a special module that reads this file and
forwards this information to the access control system.
