System Overview
aPod Software Update - Version 2.30
aPod Software version 2.30 (build 00bb46) was released on December 14, 2012.  Version 2.30 resolved a number of minor issues and introduced two new features which made the aPod System easier to install and increase its scope of application.
What was new in Version 2.30?
  • User Import Utility - A new utility was added for importing User names, token ID's and if applicable, User Group names. This import function can greatly reduce the time needed to commission an upgraded system where the aPod door controllers replace older hardware but the existing card readers and tokens will still be used.

    Export the User file from the obsolete system into Excel, verify and update the data if necessary and export the file into a TSV (tab separated value) text file.  The TSV file can be imported into the aPod System making all existing User tokens operational within seconds of power up.
  • User controlled unlock schedules for authorized Users - The aPod System provides Door Schedules and Shift Schedules to determine when a door is unlocked and if locked, which Users are allowed to enter. Sometimes a fixed schedule is not suitable.  For example, an area or facility may only be open to the public when a supervisor is present and there is no set time for their attendance.

    System Administrators can override locking schedules to temporarily unlock or lock a door and now designated Users can do the same without having access to the System Administration software.

    If a User is assigned the "Quick lock/unlock" permission, they can toggle a door between its locked and unlocked stated by badging their token three times at the card reader.  Now authorized supervisors can easily unlock the door when they arrive and re-lock it when they leave.
  • Alarm Panel Interface - The aPod System can help reduce false alarms by allowing an authorized User to arm or disarm the alarm panel with their access token at a reader located outside of the armed area.  Audio feedback from the reader buzzer will indicate whether or not the arming or disarming request was successful. If an administrator has been assigned the Remote Connect function, they can remotely arm or disarm the alarm system using the Browser Interface.  The alarm panel status is displayed in real time.
