  • Reduced number of active PSIA license checks
  • Added the ability to create a door based on an existing door template.
  • Added ability to drag and drop host based macro to personnel group (card tab) to apply to all cards.
  • Added Access Areas to Filters.
  • Added a new option to display long or short tenant names in personnel browser.
  • Fixed issue where changing Tenant name did not update tenant name in personnel browser
  • Fixed an issue with ASSA Call Back object where it would fail with “Class not registered” if a duplicate serial number existed in the AccessPoint table.
  • Fixed incorrect or missing images in some reports
  • Fixed an issue where if Facility Code is loaded via DNA Import or some other external feed, it was lost when switching card over to Corporate, or one of the other “Multi” modes.
  • Added ability in Camera Call ups (both single Load Camera and Advanced Camera) in Host Based Macros to select the camera associated with the hardware the macro was assigned to rather than a specific camera, thus making the HBM more flexible.
  • Updated the CD contents to include the latest 6.x manuals.
  • Updated the NPowerIDPrint.DLL to version 2.0.0.107.   The new features it supports (generic Card Formatting).
  • Fixed filters where Hardware that's normally not visible on the HDW Tree does show in Filters Dialog.  For instance, MP’s, CP’s on a Salto Router, PIM points, etc.
  • Changed the behavior of recently added hardware deletion logic.   You are still warned if the hardware you’re deleting is in use (Access Level, Trigger, etc.) but you are given the option to continue with the delete or cancel.
  • Fixed an issue with the DNAStatistics table was only storing the operator name when the station was initially created causing the Operators Browser Window to show the incorrect operator name.
  • Added new option in the install to skip the database upgrade.  Used only in special advanced circumstances.
  • Added the following properties to the scripting engine: CardMask,Parity1Mask,Parity2Mask,Parity3Mask,IsPrinting
  • Improved Error handling in RegServer and Driver to help reduce the chances the driver will hang on shutdown when the DB server is unavailable.  (Basically shut down SQL server with the driver running and then try to stop the driver.   It will still appear to hang a little as it times out but should continue on and successfully shut down.

  • Added new functionality so that operator can select multiple doors on the same SSP, right click, and ‘Add to Macro’.   This is similar to the existing functionality where operator can drag a door to a macro, but now it can be done for groups of doors.   It does not support dragging as the tree does not currently support dragging multiple items.
  • Fixed an issue in the driver causing some specific Honeywell sub-controllers to be incorrectly identified causing the driver port to set to the PIM protocol (PRO22R2, PRO32R2, PRO22IN, PRO32IN, PRO22OUT, PRO32OUT)
  • Fixed an issue where Global Access Levels would not show the doors on systems with SSP numbers greater than 96.
  • Improved the logic used to enabled/disable the Bio Enrollment button.  Additionally the Help/About has been upgraded to show not only what the site is licensed for but if the corresponding integration files are installed on the computer.
  • Added Flex API license info to the Help/About dialog if it is licensed.
  • Fixed an issue where Alarms sounds were not playing Normal or Default Alarm Sounds
    • Redesigned the Alarm Grid Settings Dialog and removed the unused or unnecessary items (Normal, Escalated, and Disarmed).
    • Expected behavior is to play the default sound unless you have a sound by priority set, which overrides the default.
    • On the Alarm Logging Screen the default priority is changed to 1 and 0 is not used.
  • Local Alarm Sounds File Path and Normal , Default Alarms are not Sounding
    • Local Alarm settings take precedence over DNA global settings;
    • When Global setting/Never an Alarm is selected in the I/O property page, all other fields should be grayed out to avoid confusion.
  • Add the Flex API service to the list of services the DNA Install/Service Pack will automatically shut down and restart during an upgrade.
  • Fixed an issue with the Operators Report causing to fail if the database is not named DNAFusion
  • Changed so that operator cannot manually delete the built in sub-controllers for the D2 or DController.

  • Updated DController Firmware to 1.19.4 Build 419 to address issue with input scanning on the onboard SIO (point 1 would not recognize COS)
  • Added ability to remove DSR from the user interface.   An operator with the right to add a DSR will also be able to remove one.
  • Added new custom format to the DSR card formats.  This is the H10304 37 bit format with a Sentinel
  • Grayed out NSC-100 Mac Address field if Public DHCP mode was selected.
  • Fixed an error when adding access level group from the card tab.
  • Corrected several issue related to Alarm Panel interface External Status (Bosch/DMP):
    • Fixed an issue that could cause some points to never get updated as they were being treated as Mercury Points and looking up their SSP based on the packed address. If it didn’t happen to find an SSP that randomly matched and was online it would not change state.
    • Fixed another issue where, if the Panel was offline when the client started, it would never update the points underneath, even after the panel came online.
    • Improved how the states of points that belong to a panel are updated in the case that panel’s online state changed (i.e. panel goes offline so should all the points)
  • Added ability in Camera Call ups (both single Load Camera and Advanced Camera) in Host Based Macros to select the camera associated with the hardware the macro was assigned to rather than a specific camera, thus making the HBM more flexible.
  • Fixed an issue with the physical Address when adding a non NSC 100 sub-controller to an EP Controllers that already contains a PIM400.
  • Fixed an issue with Direct Commands Editor password.
  • Fixed an invalid reference to DNAFusion database in Operators report.
  • Fixed an issue that commands could not be added for a new macro.
  • Fixed an issue where Large Card Quantities not saving in Controller Properties
  • 64 Bit Card numbers where not being interpreted correctly in the driver

  • NEW!  EP Class panels (SSP-EP, SSP-D2, DController, & NController) now support 128 access levels per card.
  • NEW!  EP Class panels (SSP-EP, SSP-D2, DController, & NController) now support “Large Card Encoding”.
  • NEW!  Added ability to revert a door to it’s default mode as configured in the door properties. This is done through the Door Mode Menu and will work with multiple doors selected as well.
  • NEW!  Added a new Info-Ready report to doors that allows you to see all the access levels this door is assigned to.
  • NEW!  Updated the Salient Video Integration to use the latest SDK (version 4.4).
  • Corrected an issue where filtering on a door when you don't have access to the controller would not show the door in the ACM tab.
  • Remove RS485 physical addresses from the list of choices for a sub-controller if they have already been assigned.
  • Add Licensing for Morpho Integration.
  • Fixed an issue where dragging a legacy access level to a card would not initiate download.
  • Ensuring that all access denied events result in a non-cached cardholder lookup.
  • Fixed the Archive by Event Type menu item to reflect the profile privilege for archiving data.
  • Updated the HoneyWell Firmware for the PW6K1IC to 2.068
  • Added the Firmware for the PRO32IC (version 2.068) to the install.
  • Fixed an issue causing Cardholders to not automatically download after a panel reset or firmware upgrade.
  • Fixed an issue where resetting a controller would result in inaccurate information on status screen until you exited dialog and returned.
  • Added ability to show the hardware address in the Hardware Tree when you’re sorting by Description.
  • Add the ability to independently change the Host Based Macro for the paired door. You’ll find a new drop down on the paired door dialog that lets you set the macro to:
    • *None
    • *Follow Master Door (default behavior as it has worked in the past)
    • Any Door Based HBM
  • Added new View (ALL_Personnel_Info) to the database to support various custom reports and future development.
  • Fixed an issue with Time Schedule Packed Addresses in Transaction File.
  • Added Tenant ID and UserID to AccessLevelGroupMember COM Object for better DNA Web Support.
  • Fixed an issue with Salient Archived Video.
  • Added the ability to skip between segments when playing archived video in Salient Integration.
  • Fixed Temporary Reader LED Control in the Macro Command Editor to disallow more beeps that Mercury Supports (0-15 is the allowed range).
  • Fixed an issue with Trigger Variable numbers off by one in Macro Dialog.
  • Fixed - On new systems some of the grid default properties were not set correctly.
  • Fixed - On a new system, if you create a new Personnel Group you can't assign to it until you restart client.
  • Fixed an issue where scheduling the Event History report would cause the Error and or Parameter Dialog to  show when the report runs.
  • Fixed - Creating a custom report based on the Event History (or Who Has Access Door(s)) does not work correctly.
  • Fixed several instances of incorrect context menus.
  • Fixed an issue with Photo Overlay Color not saving.
  • Fixed a memory leak on the Card Tab of the Personnel Dialog. With extended use, it could cause a problem.
  • Fixed - Unable to Select a Company from the Drop down on new Personnel records (until you save the record).
  • Fixed multiple issues changes with using the new Access Level Groups (both Legacy and Global) along with Filters and/or Tenants, SSP Lists:
    • Global Access Levels now obey the Access Level Category (High, Medium, etc.) permissions (i.e. you can’t assign them if you don’t have rights).
    • Global and Legacy access levels now restrict you from assigning them if they contain levels you would normally be restricted from (SSP Lists and Tenants).
    • In both the above cases they will continue to be shown in the Access Level Browser as well as Access Level Assignment dialog, but they are grayed out you can’t assign them to a cardholder, personnel group, etc. In the case of the Access Level Browser you can expand the group and the individual level(s) that prevented the group from being used will also be grayed out.
  • Access Level Groups (Global an Legacy) can now be filtered via the Filter dialog. If you’re using Filters (Station, Operator, Tenant) and you expliciltly allow an Access Level Group then you can assign it no matter what access you have to the underlying levels. Granted access through a filter overrides everything. So, if using filters, any access to Access Level Groups (Global and Legacy) has to be explicitly given.
  • In the Filter Setup, you no longer see the individual levels of Global Access Levels under the ‘Access Levels’ node.
  • The individual Access Levels of a Global Access Level are no longer shown under the SSP in the Access Level Browser.
  • Fixed an issue on the Card Holder Access Level screen where it incorrectly disabled Access Level Groups in some cases so you could not right click and remove them.
  • File Types shown when creating a graphics map has been updated to include only supported types. It also defaults to JPG files now.
  • Fixed several issues on the sub-controller properties screen causing values to get out of sync with the controller type (channels, bitmap, inputs, outputs, etc). Potentially caused issue with incorrect values being stored in database as well.
  • Access Levels with Tenant Filters was showing all levels for any SSP the tenant had access to. This has now been changed so that if you’re using Tenants and Filters, the Filters take precedence. Remember, when using filters, if you want the operator to have access to all access levels on a given SSP then you can check the SSP under the ‘Access Levels’ node on the filter dialog.
  • Fixed a few instances where changing filter settings resulted in incorrect hardware/access levels being shown (i.e. turning on Tenant Filters, changing tenant filters). Generally required you to restart the client.
  • Ensuring that any legacy or Global Access groups added when a filter is in place are automatically added to that filter.
  • Fixed an issue in Filters Dialog causing it to show all but the last Access Level Group (or any if you only had one group defined).
  • Added audit for executing Direct Commands. This will log every action executed by the direct command. The Audit Action associated with this is 7 (Execute).
  • Fixed an issue with the creation of doors for the M5-2K sub-controller. Essentially the M5-8RP and the M5-2K use a different scheme than the 2RP/2SRP.
  • Fixed - When a blank User Commands Editor is opened, clicking the OK button before entering parameters caused an application error.
  • Changed the grouping for Events 69 & 70 (Access Granted :Duress) so it shows up in Access Granted Group.
  • Added latest firmware for the M5 Bridge sub-controllers to the install.

  • NEW!  Added a number of optimizations to the loading process of the personnel view. Implemented caching for speedier load times.
  • NEW!  Added option to "Use Hotstamp for Card Number" in personnel tree properties so hot stamp is shown instead of card number on tree. This is useful for sites running corporate mode.
  • Updated support for Twain and added built-in support for Twain devices for quicker response times.
  • Fixed an issue with Access Level Group Report not printing properly.
  • Changed the language for Double Swipe events to be easier to understand.

  • Fixed an issue where the “Where Used” function would return incorrect results on Time Schedules that belong to a set greater than 63.
  • Fixed an issue with linking of Graphic Maps pages.
  • Changed the way personnel records are loaded with more than one card. Opening from personnel browser opens the same way it always has, however if you open a specific card it will only load that card. This behavior has been extended to the Events Grid (Double Click or Right click), Watch Window (for cards), Photo Recall, CRQ searches using card number variants.
  • Added the “Hotstamp” field to the default CRQ for Card Number.
  • Fixed an issue where the camera settings were not being saved properly.
  • Added logic in the badging module to ensure that any image acquired, whether from an external device or via ‘Add Photo’ will be resized in such a way so the Crop Window always fits on the active screen.
  • Added Active Status of the card to the CRQ results window.
  • Added ability to alter the location of the Custom Reports folder for customers who want to locate custom reports on a shared drive for common access.

  • Added better exception handling around looking up cameras and DVRs during the process of assigning a camera to a view.
  • Added new Mercury DLL version 4.6.1.152.
  • Fixed an issue where outputs did not obey "Local Settings" flags.
  • Fixed an issue where CRQs with fields from multiple source tables (e.g., Personnel and Keycards/Custom) would not show blank values in the results grid if the search criteria did not include values from the secondary tables (Keycards/Custom).
  • Fixed an error that would occur with photo recall events scrolling when user is customizing a toolbar. Fix: Cancelling the Crop windows was still adding the photo.
  • Changed the logic in Suprema Enrollment Process to work with official release.
  • Fixed an issue where deleting cards still showed the last person's name that owned the card on subsequent card reads.
  • Fixed an issue with physical address conflicts on DController and D2 where it erroneously conflicted with address 0 of the built-in controller.
  • Changed the behavior of the Driver to not automatically update the controller type of a PIM400-1501 when the actual controller type was a DController.
  • Fixed an issue when using IP Client SSPs the online status shown in the UI could be incorrect.
  • Fixed an issue whereby changing a Trigger from one type to one of the Extended Door Types can result in a trigger that doesn't load correctly.
  • Ensuring that Access Levels Sort by Description on the AL Tree when Hardware Tree is sorted by Description.
  • Fixed an issue where removing a door left orphaned references to Precision Access levels. This caused problems when opening personnel record with precision access assigned.

  • When you drop a new tool on a page and link it there is no need to close the page and re-open it in order for the object to start obeying status changes.
  • In design mode, when you drop a tool item on a graphics page it will now immediately switch into selection mode so you can deal with that object.
  • Right clicking in design mode on graphic maps now shows the most important menu items at the top of the context menu (Link, Unlink, etc.).
  • Fixed an issue with alignment options in graphic maps module.
  • You can now drag elements from the hardware tree and drop them on a graphics map to create a new annotation. You are now presented with a dialog that allows you to pick a type of annotation.
  • Fixed a couple of issues with linking Video Containers to Cameras on graphic maps.
