The updated feature set list and improvements list might not be very long but this was due to a lot of hard work and effort by our developers, as well as QA, getting Active Directory Synchronization implemented. This has been a very high level feature request that required a lot of dev time as well as in depth acceptance testing to ensure this new feature covers all aspects of a true AD Sync that our end users have been requesting.
New Features and Improvements –
Active Directory Synchronization: Adds and removes card holders in real time from MonitorCast. This can be done on an interval schedule or manually executed by the user
Single Swipe override: This improves special door access functions during lockdowns and other scenarios, rather than relying on a 3 swipe only
Dynamic Access Levels: Adding/Editing/Deleting access levels are now dynamic. Controller resets are no longer required
Hardware Configuration Page Performance Increased: MonitorCast 4.3 and older had long load times with servers using a lot of hardware. Load times have been reduced by 90%
Personnel Page Performance Increased: Systems using 15,000 to 20,000 card holders experienced long load times. This has been decreased drastically as well
Improved the download process to Mercury boards with systems utilizing a high amount of hardware and card holders
Live Area Monitoring: All credentials associated with a person is registered as an in our out card swipe, rather than just the entry card only
The following improvements were made in the latest automatic Recorder Patch update: Added configuration options, which were previously missing, when adding “Other hardware” devices to the system (applies to Ocularis v5.7) Corrected an issue where the SSL encryption did not work for SMTP system notifications (applies to Ocularis v5.7) Fixed a problem with newly created time templates which were not appearing as available in the Time Management configuration page (applies to Ocularis v5.5, v5.6 & v5.7)
