A Simple Tool to Upload User Photos into Devices That Runs on FEM Series Coreboards

The newest version of TCMS V2 and TCMS V3 are compiled with the latest Software Development Kit (SDK) to build an advance adaptation of TA100C and AC100, which are equipped with the new Core Board version known as FMM 100, replacing its older predecessor, FEM510. 

However, due to the situation that FEM510 and FMM100 models are running on different platforms, the new SDK used in these 2 software are not fully compatible with the older models that are running on FEM coreboards. Thus, uploading user photos into FEM model devices can no longer be done directly from TCMS V2 or TCMS V3.

Having photo identification during fingerprint verification will further enhance the validation process that the machine is capturing the correct user.
This tool allows the administrators to upload multiple user photos at the same time, without requiring any software assistance.

To upload user photos into FEM devices, please follow the steps below:

Step 1:
Be sure to have the device connected to a PC through TCP/IP connection. You can test the connection by pinging the device’s IP address, and connecting it to Device Info tool

Step 2:
Proceed to download the “FTUserPhoto” tool from here

Step 3:
Go to your PC’s Control Panel > Program and Features > Turn Windows feature on or off > Check the all the options under “.NET Framework 3.5(includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0” option.)

Step 4:

- The resolution of the photo must be 320 x 210px, and the size must not be more than   
- File type must be in JPEG format (.jpg)
- Ensure to rename the user photos the same as the user IDs (for example user ID is 900, the photo must be renamed as 900.jpg)

Step 5:
Copy all user photos and paste them inside the “FTUserPhoto” folder (User photos must be in the same folder with the FTUserPhoto tool)

Step 6:
- Turn OFF your PC’s Wi-Fi, Windows Firewall and Antivirus  
- Run the FTUserPhoto tool as Administrator
- Insert device IP address and click the “Connect” button. (it will show the device information once connected)

Step 7:
