Limitations are software or hardware issues that cannot be fixed. For certain limitations, workarounds are documented.
Synergis™ Softwire 10.11 GA includes the following limitations:
|Interface module||Issue||First reported in||Description|
|AA IP||600479||10.3 GA||Assa Abloy IP locks: The door property When door is unlocked by schedule: Ignore 'Door open too long' events is not applied in some cases.|
|AA IP||540427||10.2 GA||Assa Abloy IP locks: When a new valid credential is badged on a legacy WiFi P2 Cylindrical lock, sometimes a second badge is required to unlock the door.|
|AA IP||260606||10.2 GA||Assa Abloy IP locks: When set to relock on close, the door relocks after the grant time expires if held open.|
|AA IP||336228||10.1 GA||Assa Abloy IP locks: The maximum entry time allowed for a Card and PIN mode is 256 seconds. This amount is lower than the maximum of 999 allowed in the entry field.|
|AA IP||118015||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: Door locks immediately upon opening, even if a lock relay delay is configured for the lock.|
|AA IP||111055||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: The Trigger output action is not supported.|
|AA IP||110169||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP WiFi locks: Door opened and Door closed events are not supported.|
|AA IP||109323||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: During door unlock schedules, no event is triggered in Security Desk when you present a valid PROX or MAGSTRIPE card.|
|AA IP||109009||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: If a key is used to open the lock, the Door forced open event is reported instead of the Key override event.|
|AA IP||108940||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: For locks with internal door sensors, the Door open too long event is sometimes reported twice.|
|AA IP||108731||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: When a new unlock schedule is added to a door while the door is locked by an unlock schedule override, the door unlocks for a few seconds.|
|AA IP||108330||SMC 2.1 LA||Assa Abloy IP locks: When you override unlock schedules, the time stamp of the scheduled lock event is different from the time the door is locked.|
|All||790023||10.6 GA||When a door is in maintenance mode, setting a threat level with security clearance has no effect, so the door remains unlocked.|
Appliance Portal: units running
Softwire 10.3 cannot be upgraded using the
Workaround: Log on to the legacy portal at https://<IP address>/smc/upgrade.html to run the upgrade.
|All||501667||10.2 GA||Hardware configuration modifications cause all interfaces on same channel to briefly disconnect from the Synergis™ unit.|
|All||350658||10.1 GA||Threat level with security clearance: If a door has a configuration modification when a threat level is active, the unlock schedule is not reapplied on that door when the threat level is deactivated.|
|All||226680||10.0 GA||Interlock: On an area with interlock enabled, if a door is configured to automatically grant REX, the system cannot prevent that door from unlocking on REX if another door is still open.|
|All||224112||10.0 GA||When the two-person rule is in effect, the reader LED remains lit in red instead of flashing red and green, until the second person presents their credential. Mercury controllers are the exception; they set the reader LED to green while waiting for the second credential.|
|All||200575||10.0 GA||When the first-person-in rule is enforced on schedules with multiple time
intervals, the Supervisor in event is not generated if the supervisor
arrives before the end of the current time interval, even if it is within the
On-site time offset value.
Workaround: This limitation does not prevent the restriction from being cleared. To generate the Supervisor in event every time it is needed, ensure that the gaps between time intervals are larger than the On-site time offset value, or only use schedules with a single time interval.
|All||193873||10.0 GA||In areas where visitors need escorts, the visitors are immediately denied access when they use their invalid credentials, such as unknown card or wrong PIN, instead of waiting for the escorts to present their valid credentials. Furthermore, if the escorts present their credentials immediately after the visitors have presented theirs, the system grants the escorts access as sole users, not escorts to visitors.|
|All||184882||SMC 2.2 SR1||Synergis™
Appliance Portal: After restarting
the system, the output relays that are not configured on doors are shown in an
unknown state in the I/O Diagnostics page.
Workaround: Click each output relay to either set or clear them.
|All||167814||SMC 2.2 GA||Synergis™ Appliance Portal: When Synergis™ Softwire is used for elevator control and the Free access is when the output relay is option for the elevator entity is set to NORMAL in Security Center, the output states are shown as the opposite of the actual relay states in the I/O diagnostics page.|
|All||87967||SMC 2.0 LA||After a hardware restart due to battery failure, the Synergis™ unit clock is reset. When the unit reconnects to the Access Manager, events that are triggered have incorrect timestamps. Access Manager synchronizes the current date and time with the Synergis™ unit, and the unit reconnects a second time.|
|All||83911||SMC 2.0 LA||Custom input values from any interface module are used only when the input is configured as 4-state supervised in Config Tool.|
|Aperio||258795||10.0 GA||Aperio: If the lock is tampered, it becomes offline after approximately 2 minutes and remains offline until the tampering condition is cleared.|
|Aperio||153716||SMC 2.2 LA||Aperio: Standard door, REX, and deadbolt events such as Door opened, Door closed , Request to exit, and Deadbolt unlocked are not reported in Security Desk when the Aperio door is unlocked.|
|Axis||1770320||10.9 GA||Axis A1001: On a door set to relock after opening, the event is only triggered when the door closes even though the lock behaves as configured.|

|Axis||780112||10.4 GA||Axis A1001: Door open too long events are duplicated if they are triggered while the unit is offline.|
|Axis||727550||10.4 GA||Axis A1001: Outputs are shown as Active in Config Tool when a door is opened and set to relock n seconds after opening, even though the outputs are in the Normal state.|
|Axis||691056||10.4 GA||Config Tool: Axis OSDP readers are shown as Wiegand readers in the Peripherals page.|
|Axis||216548||10.1 GA||Axis: A reboot of the Streamvault appliance is required when adding an Axis controller on a port other than the default one.|
|Axis||154997||10.0 GA||Axis: A credential that uses an unknown bit-count can be interpreted as an existing credential that uses a longer bit-count.|
|Axis||148367||SMC 2.2 LA||When a reader is running in mode 14, the controller rejects PINs lower than 128.|
|DDS||254359||10.0 GA||DDS: When the module is disconnected from the Synergis™ unit, the reader LED does not stay green on Access granted for the whole duration of the grant time.|
|DDS||213188||10.0 GA||When more credentials are pushed to the DDS module than its memory chip can handle (maximum is 20,000), no error is received.|
|DDS||69241||SMC 2.0 LA||When a DDS controller is disconnected from the Synergis™ unit, connected readers that are in Card and PIN mode grant access without the PIN.|
|HID||2142668||10.8 SR1||When the HID PIV Authentication mode type is set to passthrough mode (mode 0) at the door, pivClass readers do not return card reads.|
|HID||118358||SMC 2.1 LA||For locks controlled by HID VertX modules, door unlock schedules are temporarily ignored upon the unit restarting.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||2098922||10.9 GA||Elevators: For an elevator floor that is in free access when a Cardholder badges on the cabin reader, the Mercury controller reports an Access Granted event regardless of access rules assigned to floors. The floor outputs behave correctly according to access rules and schedules.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||380352||10.1 GA||When an input or an output is used by both a door and a zone, including outputs linked through event-to-actions, the zone does not work.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||372676||10.1 GA||The AND operator on zones is not supported by the panel.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||358779||10.1 GA||If the option to automatically grant REX is disabled, the door does not unlock, but the Door unlocked message is still generated.|

|Honeywell & Mercury||252908||10.0 GA||When the controller is disconnected from the Synergis™ unit, access decisions become slow for 15 to 20 seconds.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||252310||10.0 GA||The PIN entry timeout setting is fixed at 10 seconds, regardless of the value you set in Config Tool.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||246610||10.0 GA||When the EP controller is not connected to the Synergis™ unit, the Access granted events follow the timestamps of the Door locked events instead of the Door unlocked events.|
|Honeywell & Mercury||217785||10.0 GA||Assigned REX inputs do not show their state change in the Synergis™
Appliance Portal - I/O diagnostics page or the Config Tool
- Peripherals page.
Workaround: Monitor these inputs through the doors that they are assigned to in Security Desk.
|Mercury||2360545||10.11 GA||After upgrading Synergis™ Softwire from 10.7 to 10.8 or later, Mercury controllers might be reset and the configuration resynched.|

|Mercury||2100209||10.11 GA||The Door open too long event is not triggered while the door is unlocked by an unlock schedule or when the schedule ends, and the door is already open.|
|Mercury||2156352||10.10 GA||Allegion Schlage: After cardholder or credential synchronization, REX events are logged, but do not always show up in the Monitoring task.|
|Mercury||2223887||10.9 SR1||Upgrading a Synergis™ unit to version 10.9 SR1 or later can cause a Mercury hardware reset. All events generated from the moment of the reset until the Mercury controllers are back online are lost.|
|Mercury||2211587||10.9 SR1||A cardholder with multiple card credentials can use two of them on the same door to bypass the two-person rule.|
|Mercury||1678748||10.9 GA||When running TI EntryPoint on an EP4502, disconnecting the controller from the Synergis™ unit and leaving it offline for several days does not cause PIV cards to expire.|
|Mercury||1892852||10.8 GA||Mercury EP4502: The Mercury controller resets after Synergis™ Softwire 10.5 is upgraded to a later version, which might cause delays between a card read and Door unlocked event, while the data is being synchronized to the controller.|
|Mercury||258707||10.7 GA||When set to Card or PIN, if a cardholder only has a PIN credential, that
credential is synched to the EP controller and does not work.
Workaround: Create and assign the cardholder a dummy card credential.
|Mercury||1350376||10.6 GA||After an EP2500 power cycles, Allegion Schlage AD-400 and LE locks with extended door modes report mode:on, though the mode is off until the next transition.|
|Mercury||385565||10.1 GA||Mercury: M5-2RP and M5-2SRP readers do not work in supervised F2F mode.
Workaround: Short DISP and WD1 connections on the reader port.
|Mercury||358327||10.1 GA||Mercury-M5: Supervised reader inputs (door contact and REX) are working as non-supervised inputs for the F2F 940 Casi-Rusco readers.|
|Mercury||217770||10.0 GA||Neither entry sensors nor multiple door lock outputs are supported by Mercury EP controllers.|
|RIO||2230424||10.10 GA||When entry is granted, the system assumes the entry has occurred regardless of whether or not the door was opened or the entry sensor was activated.|
|SALLIS||165400||SMC 2.2 GA||SALTO SALLIS: To unlock with a key, the key must be turned halfway, but the key sensor is not triggered. To trigger the key sensor, the key must be turned 180 degrees, but the door does not unlock.|
|SALLIS||163681||SMC 2.2 GA||Synergis™ Appliance Portal-SALTO SALLIS: New locks that are added with encryption enabled appear offline (in red) until encryption is properly configured on the SALTO channel.|
|SALLIS||147765||SMC 2.2 GA||SALTO SALLIS: None of the timeouts (Standard grant time, Access time, Extended grant time, lock relay, and so on) configured in Security Center and Synergis™ Softwire apply to the SALLIS lock. The lock only supports the concept of grant time (default is 6 seconds) and it must be set in the SALLIS application (see the Synergis™ Softwire Integration Guide for SALTO SALLIS Wireless Locks).|
|SALLIS||147232||SMC 2.2 GA||SALTO SALLIS: The Request to exit events are not always shown in the Security Desk Monitoring task, because the lock only reports them once every 40 seconds.|
|Synergis™ IX||2315885||10.11 GA||When you enter a valid PIN on a Synergis™
panel, the message No Keypad Area Group defined is displayed, even though
the keypad area group does not need to be defined.
Workaround: Add a door entity under your area so that the PIN is synchronized.
|Synergis™ IX||2229917||10.11 GA||All Synergis™ IX units are added to the first Intrusion Manager role when enrolled; there is no load balancing. The number of intrusion units and devices you can have on one system is limited to the number that a single Intrusion Manager can support, which is about 300 units with 80 devices.|
|Synergis™ IX||2188777||10.11 GA||When multiple cardholders badge in, but the door only opens once, only the last cardholder appears in the People counting task.|
|Synergis™ IX||2159003||10.10 GA||ABA credentials are not recognized over Wiegand.|
|Synergis™ IX||2047499||10.10 GA||Logging in at a keypad does not show a login event in the Security Center Monitoring task.|
|Synergis™ IX||2047303||10.10 GA||Synergis™ IX readers: After entering a duress PIN at the door reader, the duress event is triggered; no other duress events can be generated from the reader until a non-duress Access granted event occurs.|
|Synergis™ IX||2046998||10.10 GA||Synergis™ IX intrusion keypads: After entering a duress PIN at the keypad, the duress event is triggered; no other duress events can be generated from the keypad until another cardholder enters a non-duress PIN.|
|Synergis™ IX||2026254||10.11 GA||If there are no cardholders with cards of a supported format in any access
rules on a Synergis™
IX unit, access is not
granted when a valid PIN is entered on its Wiegand readers.
Workaround: Create a cardholder with a card of a supported format and an access rule that never has a valid schedule.
|Synergis™ IX||2046982||10.10 GA||The Synergis™ IX intrusion keypad only registers the first eight digits of a cardholder's PIN, even though the keypad reader accepts all digits. This results in two admissible PINs at the intrusion keypad.|
|Synergis™ IX||2026672||10.10 GA||If you configure a reader's Arming Mode field on the Reader Expander page of the Synergis™ IX controller web portal, the reader performs the configured action even if the door is set to maintenance mode in Security Center.|
|Synergis™ IX||1968897||10.10 GA||Access denied events for out-of-schedule access rules are not reported on the exit reader.|
|Synergis™ IX||1959763||10.10 GA||When a door with a Synergis™ IX controller controller switches the Unlocked for maintenance option from ON to OFF, it sends both Scheduled lock and Scheduled unlock events.|
