You can configure the Synergis™ unit once the pre-configuration steps are completed.


  1. All Synergis™ units come with a factory-assigned hostname. If your network does not support DHCP, your IT department must assign the appliance a new IP address.
  2. (Optional) Change the default X.509 certificate of the unit.
  3. Make sure you have the latest version of Synergis™ appliance firmware, and upgrade if necessary.
  4. Physically attach the interface modules to the Synergis™ unit.
  5. Establish communication between the Synergis™ unit and its attached interface modules by configuring them through the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.
  6. Test your hardware connections and configuration and make adjustments if necessary.
  7. Configure the access control behavior you want Synergis™ unit to exhibit.
  8. Add the Synergis™ unit to an Access Manager so it becomes part of your Security Center system.
