Tutorial: Badge Repository

Badge Repository

 

Description

This module allows storing all badge related data (card, fingerprint, password, hand, face) from all connected devices to the database and showing them in one Badge Repository screen. Badges added to connected devices will be stored automatically in Badge Repository after synchronization.

IMPORTANT: Each employee must have their fingerprint/card/hand/etc. enrolled on at least one device to create the matching pattern before you can copy it to your other devices using Badge Repository. Please not that facial recognition patterns cannot be transferred via Badge Repository.

 

Understanding the Window

 

Badge Repository Window

  •  The top section includes various Filter Conditions you can use to view only the employees who meet your desired criteria. (NOTE: Filter Conditions is shown expanded in the image above but is collapsed by default).
  • In the main part of the window below the filter, your employees are listed as the rows by Badge number, and your devices are listed as the columns.
  • The “Check” column allows you to select one or more records for action with the Import/Export/Delete buttons at the bottom of the window. The Save button saves any pending changes.
  • The “Data” column indicates which types of biometric patterns (fingerprint, hand, etc.) have been stored for that employee and are thus available for copying to other devices.
  • The “Admin” column indicates whether that use will be given Admin rights on the physical device so they can access its menus (this is not related to User rights in the software).
