Variety and simplicity are not mutually exclusive; they complement each other. The update to Xesar version 3.1, which is now available, shows how this is possible. The tried-and-tested electronic Xesar access system will be even easier and better thanks to the update, which includes the new “Installation Manager”. Another improvement: the Xesar tablet communicates with the new generation Xesar components (G 2.1) via radio.
A big support: the Installation Manager
"Installing Xesar on PCs has always presented some of our Partners with challenges, which are now a thing of the past. Xesar 3.1 users receive the appropriate help from the new Installation Manager," explains Erich Gärtner, Head of Xesar Commercial Product Management. This guides you through the software installation step by step. All necessary system settings are checked and solutions are offered in the event of errors. Users with little training can complete the PC installation in a short time and without any errors.
Save time with super flexible maintenance
Another important new feature: the new Xesar components (G 2.1), such as handles or wall readers, communicate with the Xesar tablet via radio. The previous generation, Xesar 2 components (G 2), was defined by easy maintenance and fast data transfer. However, a connection cable still needed to be physically plugged in to complete all the tasks. But with Xesar 3.1, this is no longer necessary: no cable connection is required to perform maintenance tasks.
The maintenance technician can get an overview at the touch of a button. The tablet scans all new Xesar components around it. All necessary maintenance tasks, such as firmware updates or blacklist synchronization can even be requested at the same time. This frees up a lot of time for the maintenance technician to perform other activities. He or she can also determine the order of the activities, depending on what the schedule for the day looks like. However, anyone who still wants to perform maintenance with the connection cable can continue to do so.
The components say hello
Another new feature is that identification can be requested via Xesar tablet components. They flash several times and emit a short acoustic signal. If anything is unclear regarding door component assignment, the maintenance technician can easily identify the components remotely. This saves EVVA Partners a lot of time and simplifies the installation of the system.
Turn radio on and off with only one medium
Xesar 3.1 has another new feature that makes things simpler: the Bluetooth on/off medium. Regardless of the software version, you can switch the radio on and off through the components. This means that Xesar 3.1 can continue to be used in radio sensitive areas. In addition, the radio can be installed in existing systems without radio and, when the system is updated to version 3.1, it can simply be turned on and used at its highest configuration level.
One for all
All new Xesar components are also compatible with existing systems from Xesar 2.2, even without software or firmware updates. However, customers can only access the full range of functions by commissioning Xesar 3.1. "If our customers would like to take full advantage of the new version, I highly recommend that they update to Xesar 3.1. This is, of course, free of charge – just like all software applications at EVVA," Gärtner is pleased to say.
"The Xesar 3.1 update is a further milestone in the history of Xesar. The update improves the ease of maintenance and extends the component service life. Simplicity has once again been demonstrated here," Erich Gärtner, Head of Product Management at EVVA Sicherheitstechnologie GmbH, is pleased to report.
