To receive Door offline events when the reader connected to a VertX V100 panel is either disconnected or powered off, you must configure the I'm Alive reader setting in Config Tool and program the reader with the appropriate configuration card.
Before you begin
What you should know
- From the Config Tool home page, open the Access control task.
- Click Roles and units, and then click the Synergis unit.
Click Hardware, and then scroll to the V100 panel to which the
reader is connected.
If your Synergis unit is controlling multiple V100 panels, make sure you identify the correct reader by its Channel, its physical Address, and its door number (Door1 or Door2).
Under the selected door, click ReaderImAliveSettings, and change
its value to Some.
The Time must be equal or greater than the I'm Alive time found on the reader configuration card, and the Message must correspond to the I'm Alive message (170 is the decimal equivalent of AA in hexadecimal).
- Click Apply.
- Configure the reader using the appropriate field programming card (also known as a configuration card).
