Introduction
Concepts
Understanding the following concepts may help you read through the manual.
Weekly Schedule
A weekly schedule is certain days of the week when a user is
granted access to a secure site.
For details, see 4.4 Setting Weekly Schedule.
Access Group
An access group is a group of cardholders with identical location
restrictions during the same time restraints.
For details, see 4.5 Setting Access Group.
Alarm Condition
An alarm condition is a monitored condition through sensing
devices, and an alarm condition may activate alarms. For example,
the AS200 Controller has the ability to monitor 3 sensors, such as
door status sensor, smoke detector and tamper detector. The
AS200 Controller also provides 3 output relays for activating and
deactivating electric lock, siren and emergency door release when
the alarm condition occurs.
For settings of alarm conditions see 4.2.2 Step 2:Configuring a
Door. For configuring inputs and outputs see GV-AS Controller
Hardware Installation Guide.
Anti-Duress
If a person is forced to open the door under threat, he can enter his
PIN plus 1 to activate an alarm and send a signal to the ASManager
to dispatch the police. For example, the PIN is 5555 and you enter
5556. The door will open normally (access granted) and the alarm
will be activated. The function is enabled by default in the system.
Anti-Passback
The feature is designed to prevent card sharing and to enforce use
of entry and exit readers. If a card was used at an entry reader, it
must be used at an exit reader before it will be valid at an entry
reader again.
For settings, see 4.2.2 Step 2:Configuring a Door.
Interlock
The feature is also called “mantrap” or interlocking”. The feature
interlocks two controlled doors allowing only one door to be opened
at a time. The feature will not unlock a door if the other door is open.
If both doors are open at the same time, the alarm will be activated.
For settings, see 4.2.1 Step 1: Configuring a Controller.
3
Two-person A/B
rule
The door unlock only when two assigned cards are presented
together.
For settings, see 4.3.1 Adding a Single Card.
IP device
The video device is connected to the ASManager through the
network. The ASManager enables you to access the live video from
not only GeoVision IP devices (GV-System, GV-NVR, GV-Video
Server, GV-Compact DVR and GV-IP Camera) but also certain
third-party IP cameras.
For details, see Chapter 5 Video Integration.

controlled area. This function prevents card holders from passing their cards back to a
second person to gain entry into the same controlled area. Depending on the number of
controllers and communication link, there are three types of Anti-Passback operations:
Anti-Passback, Local Anti-Passback and Global Anti-Passback.
Anti-Passback is performed only on one controller, while Local Anti-Passback and Global
Anti-Passback can be performed on multiple controllers. Anti-Passback is performed through
either RS-485 or TCP/IP connection, while Local Anti-Passback and Global Anti-Passback
are performed only through TCP/IP connection. The following table lists the supported
operations among GV-AS Controllers.

Anti-Passback
Anti-Passback is used on one controller only. For this application, select Local
Anti-Passback at the Gate tab of the Controller Setup dialog box (Figure 4-3).
Figure 6-1
To reset Anti-Passback on GV-ASManager or GV-ASRemote, right-click the Host or
Controller icon on the Device View window (Figure 3-3) and select Reset Anti-Passback.
47
6.2
Local Anti-Passback
Local Anti-Passback is used on multiple controllers which are associated with network
connections. Before you start, the following conditions must be true:
•
The communication mode between GV-ASManager and GV-AS Controller is Ethernet.
•
For the users of GV-AS200, the firmware is V1.10 or later.
•
LAN environment is applied.
Here we use three GV-AS200 Controllers as example to explain how to combine three
controllers together to operate the Anti-Passback (APB) function. Since Anti-Passback is
performed in a network connection, every controller has a unique IP address. When three
controllers are connected for Anti-Passback, an APB IP address is then applied for
interaction.
For example, Controller No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 are combined in sequence, as illustrated
below. APB IP is the IP address of the associated controller.
IP of Controller No. 1 is 192.168.0.11; APB IP of Controller No. 1 is IP of Controller No. 2.
IP of Controller No. 2 is 192.168.0.12; APB IP of Controller No. 2 is IP of Controller No. 3.
IP of Controller No. 3 is 192.168.0.13; APB IP of Controller No. 3 is IP of Controller No.1.

Anti-Passback
To configure Anti-Passback for the three GV-AS200 Controllers:
1. Access the AS200 Setting page of the Controller No. 1 Web interface. In the
Anti-Passback section, select Enable and enter Info IP that is the IP address of
Controller No. 2, e.g. 192.168.0.12.
Figure 6-2
2. Access the AS200 Setting page of the Controller No. 2 Web interface. In the
Anti-Passback section, select Enable and enter Info IP that is the IP address of
Controller No. 3, e.g. 192.168.0.13.
3. Access the AS200 Setting page of the Controller No. 3 Web interface. In the
Anti-Passback section, select Enable and enter Info IP that is the IP address of
Controller No. 1, e.g. 192.168.0.11.
4. On the ASManager, select Local Anti-Passback (Figure 6-1) to start the function.
To reset Anti-Passback on GV-ASManager or GV-ASRemote, right-click the Host or
Controller icon on the Device View window (Figure 3-3) and select Reset Anti-Passback.
49
6.3
Global Anti-Passback
Global Anti-Passback can not only prevent the use of a card to gain successive entries, but
track the card holder around the site. This application is only available for GV-AS100 and
GV-AS400.
The diagram below shows a typical site controlled by access control. The following sections
will guide you through the steps you would need to go through to configure this site for Global
Anti-Passback.
Figure 6-3
6.3.1
Step 1: Enabling Global Anti-Passback
Select Global Anti-Passback at each Gate tab of the Controller Setup dialog box (Figure
4-3).
50

6.3.2
Anti-Passback
Step 2: Configuring Areas
This step is to define the Entry and Exit areas for each door/gate and name the areas
properly.
•
On the menu bar, click Setup and select Areas. This dialog box appears.
Figure 6-4
Enter to is the area where you enter by accessing the Entry reader. Exit to is the area where
you exit to by accessing the Exit reader. In this case, we set up like this:
Gate A: Enter to Reception; Exit to Outside
Gate B: Enter to Sales; Exit to Reception
Gate C: Enter to Meeting Room; Exit to Sales
Gate D: Enter to Factory; Exit to Sales
6.3.3
Step 3: Configuring Readers
This step is to define the Entry and Exit readers for each door/gate. The reader definition tells
the GV-ASManager which reader controls the access across the area boundaries.
When card holders access the unauthorized readers, the message Access Denied: APB
(Wrong Area) will be displayed and the door will remain locked. When card holders access
the same reader successively, the message Access Denied: APB (Double Entry) will be
displayed and the door will remain locked.
51
To define readers, you can use GV-ASKeypad or the Web interface of the GV-AS Controller.
Here we use the GV-AS400 Web interface as example to define Wiegand readers. For this
case, Wiegand reader A (Entry) goes from Outside to Reception, Wiegand reader B (Exit)
goes from Reception to Outside and etc.
Figure 6-5
6.3.4
Step 4: Configuring Door Contacts
This step is to define the door contact sensor for each door/gate. When the door contact
sensor is triggered and the door is unlocked, the GV-ASManager can tell where a card holder
is based on your area definition at Step 1.
To define door contact sensors, you need to use the Web interface of GV-AS Controller. In
this example of GV-AS400 Web interface, Input 01 is used as Door Contact of Door A, Input
02 is used as Door Contact of Door B and etc.
Figure 6-6

6.3.5
Anti-Passback
Step 5: Locating Card Holders
To locate a card holder, select Monitoring on the menu bar and select New Locate Person.
When the Exit or Entry reader is triggered, the GV-ASManger can tell if card holders follow
Anti-Passback rules and then grand or deny the access. When the door contact sensor is
triggered, the GV-ASManager can tell the location where the card holder is now.
Figure 6-7
To reset Anti-Passback on GV-ASManager or GV-ASRemote, right-click the Host or
Controller icon on the Device View window (Figure 3-3) and select Reset Anti-Passback.

Troubleshooting
Chapter 13 Troubleshooting
Q1: GV-ASManager cannot connect to GV-AS Controller over the Internet.
There are several causes for this problem such as IP address conflict, incorrect connection
settings and network failure. The following solution is to assign the fixed IP to the
GV-ASManager and GV-AS Controller respectively. This way can determine if the problem is
caused by the faulty devices and incorrect network settings.
1. Disconnect the hub or switch, which connects the GV-ASManager and GV-AS Controller,
from the network.
2.
Give the GV-ASManager a fixed IP address that is NOT used by another device, e.g.
192.168.0.154.
Figure 13-1
3. Reset the GV-AS Controller module and Ethernet module to factory defaults.
a. Plug the GV-ASKeypad to the GV-AS Controller.
b. Remove the jumper cap from the 2-pin Default jumper.
c. Press the Reset button.
d. Replace the jumper cap back to the 2-pin Default jumper.
e. To reset the Ethernet Module, press and hold the Default EN button for 6 seconds.
4. Open the browser and enter the GV-AS Controller default address: http://192.168.0.100
91
Figure 13-2
5. In the IP address field, give the GV-AS Controller an IP address that is NOT used by
another device, e.g. 192.168.0.XXX.
6. On the GV-ASManager, enter the following settings:
Controller ID: 1
Network: TCP/IP
IP: 192.168.0.XXX
Port: 4000
User: admin
Password: 1234
Crypto key: 12345678
Figure 13-3

Troubleshooting
7. The connection between the GV-ASManager and GV-AS Controller should be
established, and the connection icon
should appear. If disconnection happens after
you connect the hub or switch to the network, then it should be other network problems.
Please contact your network administrator.
Q2: The connection established between the GV-ASManager and GV-AS
Controller is interrupted.
This may be due to IP address conflict. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem:
1. Disconnect the hub or switch, which connects to the GV-ASManager and GV-AS
Controller, from the network.
2. Run Windows Command Prompt. Take Classic Windows Start Menu for example, click
Start, select Accessories and click Command Prompt.
3. Type arp –d and press Enter.
Figure 13-4
4. Give the GV-ASManager a fixed IP address that is NOT used by another device. See
Figure 10-1.
5. Open the browser and enter the assigned IP address of GV-AS Controller. The Network
Configuration page appears. See Figure 10-2.
6. In the IP address field, give the GV-AS Controller an IP address that is NOT used by
another device, e.g. 192.168.0.XXX.
7. On the GV-ASManager, enter the following settings. See Figure 10-3
Controller ID: 1
Network: TCP/IP
IP: 192.168.0.XXX
Port: 4000
User: admin
93
Password: 1234
Crypto key: 12345678
8. The connection between the GV-ASManager and GV-AS Controller should be
established, and the connection icon
should appear. If disconnection happens after
you connect the hub or switch to the network, then it should be other network problems.
Please contact your network administrator.
Q3: GV-ASManager cannot receive card messages but the reader accepts the
card when the connection between the GV-ASManager and GV-AS Controller is
well established.
It may be due to memory failure in the GV-AS Controller. Reset both the GV-AS Controller
module and the Ethernet module to factory settings. Refer to Step 3 in Question 1.
Q4: The GV-ASManager cannot retrieve the video from the DVR for playback.
1. Make sure the Remote ViewLog Service on Control Center Server is enabled on the
DVR.
2. Make sure the time on the GV-ASManager and the DVR is consistent.
3. Make sure the event file you want to play back has been created completely on the DVR.
For example, the assigned time length of every recorded event on the DVR is 5 minutes.
The desired event of 5 minutes must have been displayed on the ViewLog Event List, so
you can access the event file for playback.
Q5: After I add a card by presenting to the reader, the message “Access Denied
Invalid Card” still appears
(For details on adding a card, see Step 1 in 4.3.1 Adding a Single Card.)
It may be the card format is not compatible with the GV-AS Controller. For GV-AS200, ensure
the format of your card reader is a Wiegand device of 26~40 bits; for GV-AS100 and
GV-AS400, ensure the format is 26~64 bits. Otherwise, send us the related information of
your card format so that we can customize the format for you.

Troubleshooting
Q6: The GV-ASManager cannot receive card messages from the GV-Reader
connected to the GV-AS Controller through RS-485 interface.
1. Make sure the GV-Reader is correctly wiring to the GV-AS Controller and Switch 4 on the
GV-Reader is set to OFF.
2. Make sure the correct GV-Reader ID is set on the GV-AS Controller. Take GV-AS200 as
example:
a. Plug the GV-ASKeypad to the GV-AS Controller.

b. Press any button on the keypad, select Set Parameter, and press the
c. Enter the default password 1234, and select Set GV-Reader ID by using the UP and
DOWN arrow buttons.
d. Change GV-Reader ID 0 to Extended Wiegand.
Q7: How to let all doors open when the fire situation is detected by GV-AS200.
Follow these steps for wiring on the GV-AS200 Controller and setting on the GV-ASManager:
1. Connect two Fire pins of Door A and Door B together. (illustrated as Red line)
2. Connect two GND pins of Door A and Door B together. (illustrated as Black line)
