About this Manual

The procedures in this manual assume that you have already read the manuals for your telephone entry system (Spectrum).

System Requirements

Windows-basedsoftware offers many advantages in terms of usability and versatility, but requires a computer configuration powerful enough for it to work effectively. While you may be able to run SVWin on older, less powerful computers, it will run very slowly and with greater chance of failure. For this reason we strongly recommend using at least the minimum computer configuration. To use SVWin software, the following items are required:

A Sentex Spectrum with -101or-301Board connected to a telephone line.

An IBM PC-Compatiblecomputer running Windows 95 (full version) or higher.

Internet Explorer version 4.01 (service pack 2) or later (5.0 or later recommended). Internet Explorer is provided on the CD for your convenience.

MINIMUM

RECOMMENDED

REQUIRED

Pentium 166 Processor

Pentium II Processor

Hayes-compatiblemodem

connected via a COM port

32 MB of RAM

128 MB of RAM

CD ROM

200 MB hard disk free

300 MB hard disk free

Mouse

 

 

 

SVWin System Requirements

 

IMPORTANT NOTE

SVWin stores information about its settings in the Windows Registry. If you need to change this information, Sentex dealers should call Sentex Systems Technical Support for assistance.

Doc 6001197, Rev D

6 Chapter 1: Installing SVWin

Installing SVWin

In order for SVWIN to operate properly, it must be installed onto the computer hard disk drive. SVWIN cannot be executed directly from the CD.

SVWin is compatible with the following operating systems: Windows 95 (full version), 98, ME, NT, and 2000.

Windows 95 Users: You must have Y2K Update installed on your machine.

Windows 98 (before Second Edition) Users: You must have Y2K Update 2 installed on your machine – does not apply to Windows 98, Second Edition.

Windows NT 4 Users: You must have Service Pack 5 (or greater) installed on your machine.

Windows NT/2000 Users: You must have administrator privileges to install SVWin.

NOTE: SVWin will not run in Windows 3.1 or 3.11. You must be running Windows 95 (full version) or above to run the application.

To install SVWIN Software, perform the following steps:

1Start Windows.

2Place the SVWin CD in the CD ROM drive. SVWin will automatically start the installation process; follow the on-screenprompts. If the installation process does not automatically start, continue with step 3.

3From the taskbar, select the Start Button, point toSettings, then click onControl Panel.

4From the Control Panel window, double-clickonAdd/Remove Programs.

5From the Add/Remove Programs screen, under the Install/Uninstall tab, click Install.

6Follow the on-screenprompts.

NOTES:

SVWin may prompt you to reboot your machine a few times during the installation process. This is required by Microsoft. If after each reboot SVWin does not automatically continue with the installation process, double-clickon theSetup.exe file in the SVWin software installation CD.

Once SVWin is installed, you may enter unit data to the SVWin database (e.g., adding unit definitions) without being connected to a unit. If you do this, you should perform a Receive Merge after the first time you connect (refer to page17) so the data from the Spectrum Memory merges with the data in the SVWin database.

Doc 6001197, Rev D

Chapter 1: Installing SVWin

7

WINDOWS NT/2000 USERS ONLY

If there are multiple SVWin users, you must perform these last two steps after SVWin has completed its installation:

Provide shared privileges for the entire SVWin subdirectory (and any other directory that will store the databases) AND

Grant “Full Control” permission for each SVWin user to each subdirectory storing the SVWin databases.

SVWin “Help” Aids

HTML help - Press F1 on your keyboard to open the SVWin Help file. Use the help to answer questions about SVWin or to learn more about it.

Balloon help - Balloon help is available on most screens, providing a brief identifying statement describing most buttons and many screen features. The “balloon” is a small yellow box that appears near the item it describes.

Status bar - The status bar is located at the bottom of most screens and provides screen information or helpful suggestions.

Passwords

ABOUT UNIT AND SVWIN PASSWORDS

There are two types of passwords used in SVWin:

Unit Passwords

SVWin Passwords

Unit Passwords are required when connecting to a unit and must be 6 numeric digits in length. Unit passwords also add an extra level of security by allowing you to assign selected units to other SVWin users.

SVWin Passwords are not required and, if used, must be 6 numeric digits in length. SVWin passwords force SVWin users to enter a password when opening the application.

EDITING A UNIT PASSWORD

Unit passwords are created automatically (default = 000000) when you create a new unit definition. IMPORTANT: If the unit password in SVWin is different than the unit password at the unit, then youwill not be able to connect to the unit.

To edit the password, follow these steps:

1From the main menu (see Figure 2), click Work on an Existing Unit Definition.

2At the Existing Units window (see Figure 3), select the desired unit from the Panel Information table.

SVWin Unit Setup Overview

Because SVWin is capable of so much, units can require extensive setup if all SVWin functions will be used. When setting up new units, Sentex recommends that you follow the setup sequence provided below.

1.SET UP THE MODEM AND PORT:

Enter your modem and port settings (telephone number, etc.) to communicate with your unit.

2.SET UP THE NEW UNIT:

Create a file for the new unit. Unit files require a unique file name and the unit’s telephone number. If the unit has not been installed yet, you may edit the factory settings and enter directory codes, telephone numbers, and entry codes. However, Sentex recommends that you receive the unit data first (see step 3).

3.RECEIVE UNIT DATA:

Connect to the unit and receive the data entered at the unit during installation.

4.EDIT THE UNIT’S CONFIGURATION:

Edit the factory settings, if required.

5.SEND DATA TO THE UNIT:

If you changed the unit’s configuration, you need to send all the new data to the unit.

6.SET UP THE DIRECTORY CODES:

Enter the directory codes. Directory codes are unique codes with a programmed number of digits that dial a corresponding telephone number in the building or complex.

7.SET UP THE ENTRY CODES:

Entry codes are unique 4-digitcodes that authorized personnel can use to gain access.

8.SEND CHANGES TO THE UNIT:

Send all programming changes made in SVWin to the unit.

9.PRINT THE UNIT REPORTS:

Print reports detailing the unit configuration, directory codes, and entry codes on your computer’s printer.

10.PRINT THE DIRECTORY:

Directory Code Size Mismatch

If a directory code size conflict occurs:

SVWin will display a message stating that there is a mismatch in the directory code size after receiving data from the unit (see Figure 9).

The SVWin Unit database will use the larger of the two lengths.

Example: If the SVWin Unit database or Spectrum Memory receive directory codes with three digits, but the current code length is set to “2”, the code length setting will be automatically changed to “3”.

If a directory code with less digits is received into a database with a larger code size setting, the smaller code will change to accommodate the larger code length setting. A leading zero “0” will be added for each missing digit.

Example: If the SVWin Unit database or Spectrum Memory directory code length is set to “3” and it receives directory code “12”, the code will change to “012”.

Chapter 6:Managing Directory Codes

Directory codes are unique codes that dial a corresponding telephone number in the building. When a visitor wishes to contact a resident, the visitor types in the directory code. The resident is able to talk to the visitor by telephone and determine whether or

not to permit the visitor entry.

The directory code can be 1 to 4 digits long.

About Sending Changes

In order to apply all programming changes made through SVWin, they must be sent to the Spectrum Memory. The changes can be sent to the Spectrum Memory through the Communicate with Unit screen (see Figure 19) or through theSchedule When to Send Changes To All Units screen (seeFigure 21 on page38).

Figure 19: Communicate Screen

IMPORTANT NOTES:

No SVWin programming or Spectrum unit activity can take place during a send/receive process. In addition, tenants and visitors cannot gain entry during that time.

If the directory or entry code capacities are exceeded, you will not be allowed to send changes to units.

Doc 6001197, Rev D

34 Chapter 8: Sending Data to a Unit

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SEND CHANGES & SEND ALL

The Send Changes command sends ONLY the changes entered into the SVWin Unit database since the last send command to the Spectrum Memory. Once your Spectrum Memory and SVWin Unit databases are current, to save time, Send Changes after all subsequent edits to the SVWin Unit database.

The Send All command deletes all the Spectrum Memory data and replaces it with the data from the SVWin Unit database. Use if a Spectrum unit is replaced, you want to reconfigure the unit, or if the unit and SVWin have mismatched data and the data from the SVWin Unit database is correct.

Sending All to a Unit

Use this procedure when a Spectrum unit is replaced, you want to reconfigure the unit, or if the unit and SVWin have mismatched data and the data from the SVWin Unit database is correct.

1Open the Communicate with Unit screen (seeFigure 19).

2Connect: Click the Connect button to establish communication with the unit. When communication is established, the message "Connected to Unit" displays in the Connect Status box.

About Scheduling Communication with Units

Each time you make changes to the SVWin database, you will want to send the changes to Spectrum Memory. Since no one can access the unit while data is being sent or received, SVWin gives you the ability to schedule the time to communicate with the unit. You will likely want to schedule communication in the early morning hours.

You will need to perform routine maintenance. For example, when people move out, you will erase their directory and entry codes. Later, others may move in and you

will be adding directory and entry codes. Every time you make changes, you will want to

send them to each unit’s Memory respectively. For more information, see Scheduling to Send Changes to All Units on page38.

If you make changes to only one unit, you will want to send the changes to that unit’s memory. See Scheduling to Send Changes to a Unit on page41.

Once in a while you may need to receive all data from a unit or send all data to a unit. This may occur if you add or upgrade a unit - you will be receiving the unit's data first; then sending its new configuration. For more information, see Scheduling to Receive All Data from a Unit on page39.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the number of directory or entry codes entered exceeds the capacity, or if there are any directory codes which are too long, you will not be allowed to send data to the units until the extra codes are deleted, or you have changed the directory codes which are too long.

Upgrading a Spectrum Unit board involves two parts.

Before the new microchip has been installed, you must prepare SVWin for the upgrade by creating a new unit definition.

After the new microchip has been installed, you must send the new configuration and data to the Spectrum Memory.

Preparing SVWin for Spectrum Memory Upgrade

You will need to program SVWin for the upgrade by defining a new unit configuration so that you can use the new directory and entry code capacities. Then you will need to download the current directory codes, telephone numbers, and entry codes intoSVWin. This is done in three steps:

1.Create a new definition for the upgraded unit: This will allow you to change the configuration to fit your upgraded unit; pay special attention to the directory code length.

2.Receive all data from the old unit: Perform this step so you will not have tore-enterdirectory codes, telephone number, and entry codes.

3.Resolve any directory code length discrepancies: As soon as your upgrade is complete, you can send the new information to the unit.

Follow the procedures below:

CREATE A NEW DEFINITION FOR THE UNIT

1Start SVWin. Refer to page 8.

2Create a new definition for the unit (refer to page 16). Use the same telephone number you used for the old unit definition.

3When you edit the unit configuration, make sure the directory code length is correct for the upgraded unit capacity. If you are increasing the number of directory codes, you must make sure the directory code length is correct.

Example One: The unit currently has the capacity for 80 directory codes. Its directory code length is 2 (for directory codes 01 to 80). The upgrade will give the unit the capacity for 115 directory codes (001 to 115). You must change the directory code length from 2 digits to 3 digits.

Example Two: The unit currently has the capacity for 150 directory codes. Its directory code length is set at 3 (for directory codes 001 to 150). The upgrade will give the unit the capacity for 250 directory codes (001 to 250). You do not need to change the directory code length - it is still 3 digits.

RECEIVE ALL DATA FROM THE OLD UNIT

1Access the new unit definition through Work on Unit screen.

2Connect to the unit. Refer to page 17.

3Download the old data by selecting Receive All. If you increased the directory code length (e.g., from 2 to 3 digits), SVWin will notify you.

4Disconnect from the unit.

RESOLVE DIRECTORY CODE DISCREPANCIES

1Bring up the Directory Codes for the new unit definition. SVWin will give you a message that the directory code length has changed. See Resolving Differences in Directory Code Length on page27.

After Installation of the New Microchip

After the new microchip has been installed, two more steps are required to program the unit:

1.Send all data to the new unit: In preparing SVWin for memory upgrade (see page 45), you created a new unit definition and copied the directory codes, telephone numbers, and entry codes you had already entered; you must now send this data to the unit.

Connect to the unit and send all data. Refer to pages 17 and34.

2.Delete the old unit definition: The old definition is now incorrect for the unit; delete it so that you don't accidentally send the wrong information to the upgraded unit.

Bring up the old unit definition through Work On Unit and delete it.
