Product details

Data communication module

The data communication defines the maximum number of terminals that can be logged on. This modules guarantees and realizes the transfer of recorded data (booking data) from terminals to application. The data communication can be purchased in different scales.

User management module

The B-COMM user management is used for creating and managing users of this software and for assigning specific rights. The "Administrator", a user with specific rights for system administration, has a superior function and can define other users with their individual rights or delete created users.

TerminalStatus module

TerminalStatus is a program that can be installed on any computer in the network. The system administrator can then see the communication states of the different terminals (e.g. "can be accessed/cannot be accessed via the network"), terminal errors or alarms (e.g. "Vandalism: terminal open") or even door alarms (e.g. "door break-in"). The system administrator may select or define the state he/she considers most important.

CardLink™ module

This module is integrated in the partner application and thus expands your application by a standalone access control. The virtual network "Kaba CardLink" makes it possible to integrate the different wireless door components for access control in the partner solution to obtain an integral system.

Biometric module

This module allows using a biometric solution by means of fingerprints. It is used - in addition to the terminals - to register finger templates, to manage them and to transfer them by means of B-COMM to the connected biometric terminals and subterminals.

AVISO module (user interface for security and property protection)

This programming module simplifies creating and modifying AVISO routines (extension of the firmware functionality of terminals).

Parameter setting software (PEC = Parameter Editor Collection)

The parameter editor allows customizing the numerous functions of the terminal for different requirements. You may edit the initialized parameters or factory settings according to your requirements and save them in the terminal. If an FTP connection (File Transfer Program) is available, it can be used for data transfer.

Several application interfaces module

This option allows defining more than one online application. The entered data records, e.g. from time & attendance, SFDC or access control, can be distributed and transferred to the different applications depending on the record type / record type modification.

E-mail server module

B-COMM allows establishing a connection to an e-mail server. When any predefined event occurs, e.g. start/stop of a stream, an e-mail is automatically sent to the configured addressees. This allows reacting fast and in a competent way to any occurring faults.
