Programming the FW2 remote  

DDS

1. Setting up the Hardware

Before we can use the TPL controller we need to configure some dipswitch settings, do this by taking off the extension board that is factory fitted to the TPL controller. Simply undo the screw holding the extension board to the main controller and then gently remove the extension which is plugged in via headers.

DS: = dipswitch number

DS2 = bar of 4 dipswitches

JP4 = bar of 8 dipswitches

DS2/DS:4 (readers with Weigand interface) = on/1/up position

JP4/DS:1-5 (controller addressing; not required when connecting via IP) = off/0/down position

JP4/DS:6 (weigand with parity check) = on/1/up position

JP4/DS:7-8 (reader technology) = off/0/down position)

After making changes to the dipswitches carefully plug the extension board back on and screw it in place.

Note: If changing dipswitches while controller is powered then please power cycle controller after making the changes.

2. Installing the TDST Software (used to assign network settings to the board)

When connecting DDS controllers through their ethernet connection, the IP address (highly recommend it to be static for which you need the network segment, subnet mask and gateway) must be programmed through Tibbo DS Manager. If you have already installed AM8 then the TDST software (which installs the Tibbo DS Manager) can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Amadeus8\Tools\TDST. Alternatively, you can also download this from our website. Link below.

TDST 

After installing TDST, power on the TPL controller and connect it via ethernet to the local network then launch the Tibbo DS Manager. The controllers default IP address will appear, which may not be a valid IP address for your LAN. To change the IP address, select (highlight) the line with the current IP address and click <Change IP> and assign the controller a free static IP address within the network segment. Note: Never set the IP address to 0.0.0.0 ! The unit is rebooted and after few seconds the new IP will appear.

Now we need to set and check some other network parameters. Highlight the controller we defined the IP address for and click <Settings>, then perform the following changes:

In Network Settings tab;

set “Port” to 10001 instead of 1001

set “Gateway” to that of your network

set “Subnet mask” to that of your network

set “Transport protocol” to TCP (default is UDP)

In Serial Settings tab;

Check the “Baud rate” is set to 9600 bps (default) 

Check “RTS/CTS flow control” is set to “Disable or remote”. 

Click <OK> to exit the properties screen and exit the device manager. If you have many controllers in your system it is recommended to set the network settings of one completely before adding the next. All controllers in the system should be set to port 10001.

3. Installing Amadeus 8 (the server software for DDS controllers)

The latest Amadeus 8 (AM8) can be obtained from the link below

Amadeus 8 

To Install Amadeus 8 you must specify; PARAM CODE: C23ASda1. The software will prompt you for a PARAM CODE if you are installing the software for the first time on this machine.

If the software has been installed (then uninstalled) on the machine previously you will not be prompted for the PARAM CODE.

For a fresh install you must first uninstall AM8 using “add remove programs” and then remove the ACS folder from C:\ProgramData. Also please remove the Amadeus8 folder from C:\Program Files (x86) if the uninstaller hasn’t done it automatically.

After entering the PARAM code, please select Full Installation and wait for the installation to complete. If the software fails to install, please refer to 10TE816 AM8 SW Installation.

4. Adding the TPL Controller in AM8

To add the controller into the AM8 software, launch the software (un/pwd is “admin/admin”)

4.1 By default you should be in the 'SETUP' menu. Click on the first sub menu 'INFRASTUCTURE'

4.2 Click on 'Site' and give your site a name (name of project) and a description if you prefer and then hit save (top right)

4.3 With the 'Site' still selected, click 'New Network' and pay special attention to Adapter, IP address and port which were defined previously, finally hit save.

4.4 With the 'Network' now defined and still selected click 'New Controller'. Ensure address is 0 (for every IP controller) and type (TPL), change active to yes and finally click save. Repeat steps 4.3 and 4.4 for every new IP controller you wish to add.

Once the SITE, NETWORK & CONTROLLER have been defined under the 'Infrastructure' main menu of the 'Setup' tab we can proceed to define a 'Where' (readers) and a 'When' (schedule) in the form of an Access Group. A single or a collection of Access Groups form a Multiple Access Group.The Multiple Access Group is what's assigned to the user. The example below looks at designing an access schedule for the "staff" group in a business. 

  

STEP 1.

The first step is to define the 'When'. We do this by selecting the 'Time Zone' main menu then click 'New' under the Daily Program sub menu and select a time period that we wish to give access (eg. Staff (8am-6pm)) then click 'Save'. 

  

STEP 2.

Next, form a Weekly Program which incorporates the Daily Program you created in the first step. In the same 'Time Zone' menu this time select the Weekly Program sub menu and click 'New'. Here you will select the Daily Program you created in the first step for each day of the week. By default the Always Daily Program is selected for each day. Change this by clicking the arrow and selecting the Daily Program we created (Staff in our example). Be sure to name the weekly program (eg. WP Staff) then hit 'Save'. 

  

STEP 3.

Now leave the 'Time Zone' main menu and navigate to the 'Access' main menu then click 'New' under the 'Access Groups' sub menu. Tick the box which reads 'Create Multiple Access Group Automatically' and select 'Door Access Group'. Name the new Access Group (eg. Staff Access) then click 'Select Readers' to choose the readers/doors that this Access Group has access to. Once the readers are selected scroll to the right where you see Weekly Program. CLick the arrow and select the Weekly Program you created in STEP 2 (WP Staff). You must do this for all readers that are added into the Access Group then hit 'Save'. 

  

STEP 4.

Since we ticked 'Create Multiple Access Group Automatically' in the step above simply select the Multiple Access Group sub menu from the same 'Access' main menu and there should be a Multiple Access Group with the name Staff Access which has the Door Access Group we defined in STEP 3 i.e Staff Access. Check that the Weekly Program i.e 'When' and the Door Access Group i.e 'Where' are correct.   

If you didn't do the step above then under the same 'Access' main menu select the Multiple Access Group sub menu and click 'New', then 'Add/Manage' under the Door Access Groups. Here add the Access Group you made in STEP 3, i.e Staff Access. Check that the Weekly Program i.e 'When' and the Door Access Group i.e 'Where' are correct. Finally name the Multiple Access Group (eg. Staff Access) and hit 'Save'.  

GATEKEEPER

 1. Power up and connect the NET-QX/NET-DX board via the RS-485 to TCP/IP converter into your network   

2. Install (must run as ‘Administrator’) the software in the order below;
a) GateKeeperFulll - During Install, please choose ‘Full Install’ when prompted and also ‘Create Database’ when prompted to create the SQL database. After installation is complete select ‘do not run’ and exit then proceed to the next step.
b) GateKeeperUpdate_v1.2.082 - During Install, please choose ‘install update only’ and wait for the installation to complete. Do not run software at this point.
c) USR VCOM-RS485-TCPIP –Before install right click installation file and select ‘Run as administrator’. After installation is complete, right click the ‘USR-VCOM’ icon and select ‘Properties’ and navigate to the ‘Compatibility’ tab. Then select ‘Run this program as an administrator’, click ‘apply’ then click ‘Change settings for all users’ and select ‘Run this program as an administrator’ again then ‘apply’ and ‘ok’. Now navigate to the ‘Security’ tab and select the logged in user and ensure that this user has ‘Full Control’ permissions.   

3. Run USR-VCOM then click the downward point arrow next to the ‘Search’ and select ‘USR-TCP232-T24. The RS-485 to TCP converter should be visible at this point.   

USR-VCOM settings are as below (below example shows the RS-485 to TCP/IP adapter being added to 192.168.1.X network with an IP of 192.168.1.95/24). It is important to assign a static IP address to the adapter.
Once the RS-485 to TCP/IP adapter is visible, double click and set the following parameters:
DEVICE IP– 192.168.1.95 (Static IP address for the RS-485 to TCP/IP adapter
NET PROTOCOL – TCP Server
SUBNET MASK – 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY: 192.168.1.0
BAUDRATE: 38400
DEVICE PORT – 1001
REMOTE IP – 192.168.1.1
SPECIAL FUNCTION – Check RESET, LINK & RS-485
 

Press Ok to save then Click ‘Set Com Device’. Here use the following settings:
VIRTUAL COM – COM25 (The COM port chosen must not be in use by any other application)
NET PROTOCOL – TCP Client
REMOTE IP/addr – 192.168.1.95
REMOTE PORT – 1001
REMARKS – NAME THIS RS-485 NETWORK/LOOP
 

Browse to the RS-485 to TCP/IP adapters ip address via chrome browser, login using admin/admin. Under the ‘Expand Function’ menu make sure Short Connection is enabled/ticked. Save and reboot the module.   

4. The remaining settings relating to adding the RS-485 network must be specified in the GateKeeper software. Before running the program for the first time, right click the ‘GateKeeper’ icon and select ‘Properties’ and navigate to the ‘Compatibility’ tab. Then select ‘Run this program as an administrator’, click ‘apply’ then click ‘Change settings
for all users’ and select ‘Run this program as an administrator’ again then ‘apply’ and ‘ok’. Now navigate to the ‘Security’ tab and select the logged in user and ensure that this user has ‘Full Control’ permissions. Now you can run the program.

· Navigate to Setup > Networks 

· Click the Add (plus button) then enter the Network Name. 

· Network Type = COM  

· Port = The COM port (configured in USR-VCOM). This number will be highlighted in bold with an identifying dot. 

· Navigate to Setup > Doors then click ‘+’  

· If this is the first board (D/SW 1 set to on, rest off) then add doors 1 – 4 (NETQX).  

· Door Name = Door 1, Door 2, Door 3, Door 4 Network ID = The network defined above
Address = 1, 2, 3, 4 

· One door added at a time unless you choose the ‘Create multiple doors’ option 

· If a second board is to be added in the same loop set the D/SW to 1, 3 to on, rest
off) then add doors 5-8 

· Door Name = Door 5, Door 6, Door 7, Door 8
Address = 5, 6, 7, 8 

· Repeat above steps (while changing D/SW) for adding doors of all remaining controllers 

The key to programming the GateKeeper for access control is based on schedules (when) and doors (where). Once the ‘when’ and ‘where’ are defined in the form of ‘Access Groups’, these groups then get assigned to users who hold the appropriate
access based on the permissions defined for that access group. 

Once the NETWORK has been defined under Setup > Networks menu we can proceed to define a 'Where' (readers) and a 'When' (schedule) in the form of an Access Group. The Access Group is what's assigned to the user. The software can assign two Access Groups to one user. The example below looks at designing an access schedule for the "staff" group in a business. 

STEP 1.

The first step is to define the 'When'. We do this by navigating to Setup > Day Zones. In the tab that opens click the ‘+’ icon then enter a name and a period during which you wish to give access. (eg. Staff (8am-6pm)) then click the 'Save' button. 

STEP 2.

Next, form a Week Zone which incorporates the Day Zone period you created in the first step. Go to Setup > Week Zone. In the tab that opens click the ‘+’ icon then enter a name for your Week Zone (eg. Staff (8am to 6pm [M-F])). Next select the Daily Program you created in the first step for each day of the week (including weekends/holidays if applicable). Do this by clicking the arrow next to the Day and selecting the corresponding Day Zone (Staff (8am to 6pm)). Be sure to save the settings by clicking the 'Save' button. 

STEP 3.

Finally navigate to the 'Access Levels' menu by going to Setup > Access Levels. Click the ‘+’ then give an Access Level Name (eg. Staff), choose the corresponding Week Zone (eg. Staff (8am to 6pm [M-F])) and finally tick to choose the Doors that this Access Group has access to and move them to the Selected Doors box. Click 'Save' when finished. You can now proceed to assign this Access Level to any user.  

TVT

To add cameras that are connected on a poe-switch which is also connected to the NVR you must first ensure that the cameras have been assigned an ip address that is on the same subnet as the network that the switch is connected to. For instructions on how to do this, please refer to the FAQ "INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL CAMERA ADDRESSING:". Please make sure that the NVR is also on the same network

The next step is using the NVR. Goto: Settings > Add Camera > select the cameras that are added via the switch (they should all be showing up in the add camera screen). If you receive a invalid username or password) 

There are two Menu options to get the backup of footage from the NVR interface- Playback and Search and Backup.

 

  1. Backup of Footage from Playback menu

 

  1. Insert a FAT32 formatted USB on to the front/back USB port on the NVR.
  2. Go to Start> Playback to get the playback menu on the right.
  3. Choose the camera and drag the cursor along the length of time backup is needed. Right click the mouse to pop up the backup window.
  4. Click ‘Backup’, ensure your USB is under the ‘Device Name’. Choose the format as AVI, create a ‘New Folder’ if required and click ‘Backup’.

 

  1. Backup of Footage from Search and Backup menu

 

  1. Insert a FAT32 formatted USB on to the front/back USB port on the NVR.
  2. Go to Start>Search and Backup to get the main search menu.
  3. Go to the ‘Time’ tab on the top and select a date from the calendar.
  4. Click ‘+’ under ‘Picture’ and select a camera from the list.
  5. The timeline on the top of the screen gets populated for the cameras selected. Drag cursor along the timeline to select the duration of backup. Click ‘Backup’ on the bottom of the screen.
  6. Alternatively, you can manually select the backup time by going to ‘Set Backup time’ on the bottom left of the screen. Select the backup date and time and click ‘Backup’. 

Setting up face detection and face match can be broken down into three steps- Setting up Face Detection, creating face groups and adding faces and setting up face match. The latest official firmware version of NVR ver. 1.4.2 has simplified the face detection and face match in a single menu-the ‘Alarm’ menu.

Face detection can be setup on a single interface for all cameras. Face match can be configured as four tasks. Each task can be custom defined to include certain face groups and action lists for when a face match occurs. For example, you can have Task 1 setup for an ‘Allow List’. This would include choosing which face groups are part of ‘Allow List’ and how the NVR would respond when a person walking in front of the camera belongs to the groups in the ‘Allow List’. Task 2 can then be similarly setup for a ‘Block List’.

The steps below detail basic setup of face detection and recognition.

  1. STEP 1: Setting the Face Detection settings for cameras

 

    1. For the face cameras, make sure Face Detection is ‘Enabled’ on the top right menu, Save Source Information and Save Face Information is tuned ON. Duration is the time interval between detections.
    2. In the ‘Area’ section, make sure the area or face capture is within the green box. Only area within the green box is picked up for faces. You can set the detectable face size by defining the maximum and minimum value. The default size range of a single face image occupies from 3% to 50% of the entire image.
    3. Chose White light mode settings as required.
    4. Next tab on right

 

  1. STEP 2: Setting up Face Database by adding faces from the Snapshot gallery
    1. Go to Settings>Alarm>Smart Event>Face match>Face Database management
    2. Go to face database management>Add group>Add Face.
    3. Chose the camera and time interval to search>Search and add face and enter details of the person.

 

  1. STEP 3: Setting the Face Match settings
    1. Go to Settings>Alarm>Smart Event>Face match
    2. Chose Configure on Task 1-rename task, specify if task is ‘allow list’ or ‘block list’ and select schedule.
    3. Click ‘Enable’ and chose face group to be included and click ‘Apply’. This sets the properties of Task 1 to look for the faces setup on the database in that group and to assign action points for the task.
    4. Click the alarm linkage-tab next to configuration 

‘Real time display’ has to be enabled if the match records are to be displayed on the right hand side of the live display.

    1. Repeat steps 3.a-3.c above for the other Task 2 and Task 3 as required.

Special note on Task 4-Stranger- This is the default stranger task. Any face groups that are added into the database and included in either of the Task 1, Task 2 or Task 3 are automatically added into the Stranger Task. Then, any face detected that is not part of these groups is flagged as a stranger and an appropriate action can be then set. Instead, you could choose which groups should be considered in this Stranger task. 

Setting up face detection and face match can be broken down into three steps- Setting up Face Detection, creating face groups and adding faces and setting up face match.

When TVT cameras are plugged into the NVR they use their internal address (provided by the NVR) to connect and this is in the range 10.151.151.X (X = Cam1, Cam2, Cam3 and so on)

However, when the cameras are connected on a network via a poe-switch they will take on the address 192.168.226.1

TVT’s IPTool can be used to scan and configure cameras on a local network. Some configurations you can make from the IPTool include;

-Modifying network parameters (ip address/subnet mask/gateway). Must know camera password to do this. Default camera password is 123456

-Factory reset device (by entering MAC which you can get from the IP tool itself and rebooting the device) 

  1. Check your external ip address using www.whatismyip.com
  2. Assign a internal static ip address to the recorder, either through address reservation (static dhcp) via the router or by manually assigning an IP address to the NVR via it’s GUI (if assigning this way, please choose an address in the same subnet as the router network)
  3. On the router look for “virtual server” or “port forwarding” settings and proceed to add a new service
  4. Assign a name to the service then choose both or tcp for the protocol, specify the recorders ‘internal ip’ address which you set in step i) and finally set the external and internal ports (in this case the port will be 80)
  5. Save and reboot the router.
