This article contains the release notes for Intelli-Site 4 v4.21.33.  The following sections describe the release in detail and provide late-breaking or other information that supplements the main documentation.

This is a maintenance release that improves quality, reliability, and performance.  All users are encouraged to upgrade to this release.

New Features

  • The following software features were added:
  • Client Manager Service - a new Intelli-Site 4 component, handles management of multiple Desktop Clients, offloading this management from the Engine. It will be most useful in redundant systems. (Redundancy is expected to be released in 4.0.22) Note: This is an OPTIONAL component and will count as an active session against the license meaning it will use up one of the connection counts.
  • Engine Service - startup dependencies were added. Because of this, the Engine may not start for a minute or two on system startup.
  • Card Add Reader - Allows a card to be added to the database if it doesn't already exist when it is presented to the specified reader. If the card does exist in the database, that personnel and card record is displayed. All this assumes the user is in Access Management View.
  • On the Computer node is the field Card Add Reader. Drop the reader node that corresponds to the desired reader
  • The Web Service will display the Access Management View page if the user's default View has not been implemented in the web client
  • Reports View button added to Hardware Management View and Activity View to take the user immediately to Reports View
  • Database field properties dialog has a new field, Required. This field is only active for text-based fields. When checked, this field is a required field allowing the integrator to define which fields are required on a project-by-project basis.

The following Panels were added or upgraded:

  • Accutech
    • Added the Emergency priority
    • There must be at least five (5) priorities. When a project is upgraded that has less than five (5) priorities, priorities are added called Reserved with the fifth priority being Emergency.
    • Added the sub-state BandRemoval to the Zones. It has the highest importance.
    • Added the sub-state LockedDown to the Zones. It has the second-highest importance.
    • When a project is upgraded, these sub-states are added if not present.
    • Added Loiter Bypass Point
    • Added new evaluation selections for Zones: Reset, Supervision, Loiter, LoiterBypass, Ajar, Exit, LockedDown,  and BandRemoval.
    • The states of the automatically created screen object were modified. See the Accutech AS and LS Panel Guide for more details.
  • Aiphone-IX
