Firmware Update for Q2i (FEM800) - Permanent Door Open Enhancement

Firmware Update for Q2i (FEM800) - Permanent Door Open Enhancement

FingerTec has updated Q2i FEM800 firmware which now includes an enhancement on Permanent Door Open feature to provide more flexibility in terms of scheduling door opening.

Permanent Door Open Close Time Zone feature in Ingress allows you to set the unlocking option for your doors with up to 3 different intervals daily. This feature is usually used in Service Centre whereby the front door is often kept unlocked for customer access without the need for staffs to unlock the door. Previous firmware of Q2i is only able to support 1 interval and with this firmware update, the system can now support up to 3 intervals.

For the Service Centre front door, it should remain open during working hours and close during lunch time. Hence, there are two time-interval to be included for this situation. Considering that the device is using normally close door, the two time zone intervals are:

1)  (0800 – 1200) – First Work Period: Door will automatically unlock at 8 am and lock at 12 pm.

2)  (1300 – 1700) – Second Work Period: Door will automatically unlock at 1 pm and unlock at 5 pm.

Steps in Ingress software:
1) Add new Time Zone

2) Set your interval as Permanent Door Open period.
In this situation, we need to include 2 intervals which are during First Work Period and Second Work Period.
As Sunday and Saturday are rest day, the interval will remain (0000 – 2359) in order to ensure that the door is always lock.

3) Assign the Permanent Door Open Close to Your Doors
To change the settings of your door, click on your door name and click on Edit at “Details”.

4) At the Permanent Door Open Close Time Zone, click on the drop down list.

5) Synchronize the changes to the device (Q2i).

6) Sync and restart your device.
