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

  3. Upgrade the Synergis™ appliance firmware to the latest version.
  4. Physically attach the interface modules to the Synergis™ unit.
  5. Establish communication between the Synergis™ unit and its attached interface modules through the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.
  6. Test your hardware connections and configuration and make adjustments if necessary.
  7. Configure the access control behavior of the Synergis™ unit.
  8. Add the Synergis™ unit to an Access Manager so it becomes part of your Security Center system.
