Invalid Time Period Error in Face ID5 for New Registered User

Friday, December 16, 2022 TimeTec 0 Comments

 

Introduction
When a new user has been created and enrolled in Face ID 5 series devices, the user does not have any access level assigned to him yet. This will lead to a failed verification with ‘Invalid Time Period’ error message shown at the device screen during verification. This article will explain the steps on how to solve the ‘Invalid Time Period’ error at Face ID 5 devices.

Process
1. Once a new user has been created in a Face ID 5 device, you need to download the user to Ingress software. New users will be automatically pushed to AWDMS software. Thus, you only have to download the user in Ingress software.

2. Go to Users module > Download User > Double click on Device > Select new user > Select All Data > Click Download

3. After the user has been downloaded into Ingress software, you need to assign the user to the existing access level that you already configured during the first setup. There are two ways to assign new users to the access group.
 
First, you can directly assign the user group in the Users module. Select New User > Go to Access Control > Edit > Select Access Group to Full Access > Save.

Secondly, you can go to Access Level module > Select Full Access group > User tab > Edit > Add > Select Users > Click OK

4. Once a new user has been assigned to Access Group, you can directly upload the user to the AWDMS. Go to Users module > Click Upload User > Select AWDMS > Select New User > Select All Data > Click Upload.

  

5. If a new user is created from Ingress software, you need to make sure to assigned the user Access Group before uploading the user to the device.

REMARK : Above article can only be performed if the Access Level has already been created and synchronised from Ingress software to AWDMS during the first time setup.

How to use FingerTec Electric Door Strike

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 TimeTec 0 Comments



Introduction
FingerTec offers two types of electric door strike: 210MF or 210M Door Strike that can be used with our access control devices. Electric door strike replaces the fixed strike face-plate which is often used with a latch-bar (also known as a keeper). Like a fixed strike, it normally presents a ramp surface to the locking latch allowing the door to close and latch just like a fixed strike would. However, an electric strike's ramp surface can, upon command, pivot out of the way of the latch allowing the door to be pushed open (from the outside) without the latch being retracted (that is, without any operation of the knob) or while activated the knob or lever can be turned to allow access from the secured area.
 
210MF (Fail-safe): Also known as the fail-open. When the electric current is applied to the strike, it will lock up the door. It operates just like the EM lock mechanism and if there is a power failure, the strike will release the door. The fail-safe unit operates on direct current (DC) with the same function with EM lock, the connection with the FingerTec device is almost the same with EM lock connection.

210 M (Fail-secure): Also known as the fail-lock or non-fail safe. When the electric current is applied to the strike, it will release the door. In this configuration, the strike would remain locked in a power failure. However the knob can still be used to open the door from the inside to allow access from the secure side. These units can be powered by alternating current, which will cause the unit to buzz, or DC power, which offers silent operation, except for a "click" while the unit releases. The device connections are different with the EM Lock where it only unlock when current is applied.

4. Fill up all the necessary information for each box and click Submit.

5. To check on your request status, click on the Features button.
