Kadex & R2(FEM565) Latest Firmware And Feature Explained

FingerTec has updated Kadex and R2(FEM 565) firmware from the previous version 3544-05 to the latest version 5114-07 which now includes the new feature to support 99 Access Groups.

Feature Description
Previously, the maximum Access Group that is allowed for 3544-05 firmware is limited to 5 access groups. Hence to further benefit users, the updated firmware now allows the users to include up to 99 access groups. This improvement is perfectly suitable for big companies that have a huge number of employees as well as intend to restrict their employees’ access into certain areas within certain time zones.

During Weekdays, Door A in a company can be accessed by User A within 12.00 am to 09.00 am and User B within 09.00 am to 6.00 pm. In this case, Admins can create 2 different access groups with 2 different Access Level settings as shown below:

Access Group 1: Door A, Night (12.00 am to 09.00 am), User A
Access Group 2: Door B, Morning (09.00 am to 6.00 pm), User B

Feature Settings
Configuration of Access Group can be done in Ingress software, at Access Level module. You can download the latest Ingress software from the link provided below:

To configure the settings under Access Level, please first ensure that the terminal is connected with Ingress and added as a device to the door.
Next, add Time Set. When Time Set is added, 3 Time Zones will be created. In Time Set 1, first interval represents Time Zone 1, second interval represents Time Zone 2 and third interval represents Time Zone 3. The same goes for other Time Set when it is created.

Edit the Access Time in the Time Zone accordingly.
Add Access Group under Access Level.

After creating a new Access Group, select the Time Zone with the appropriate timing. Users can also be added into the Access Group under the User tab.

Remarks: 1 User can ONLY be added into 1 Access Group.
