ハニーウェル EBI Documentation

1.目的 #

This document is intended to instruct the user on how to synchronize an XPressEntry mobile access control system with a Honeywell EBI access control system.

This will allow XPressEntry to have a copy of the Cardholders and Cards and their access privileges from EBI. Activity records cannot be pushed back into EBI at this time.

1.1仮定 #

このドキュメントでは、いくつかの前提を説明します。

  1. 読者はXPressEntryシステムと用語に精通しています。 XPressEntryの基本的なセットアップと使い方は、XPressEntryのメインマニュアルにあります。
  2. 読者は、Microsoft SQL Server Management Studioの基本的な知識を持っています。
  3. The Honeywell EBI installation is administered by someone with knowledge and access to SQL Server commands.
  4. Honeywell EBI includes the Cardholder Services module.

1.2インストール #

We will not cover installation of either XPressEntry or Honeywell EBI here. Refer to the appropriate manual to get that set up.

2.EBI Setup and SQL Server #

2.1EBI Server Version #

In order for the XPressEntry integration with Cardholder Services to work properly, EBI needs to be using at least version 410.2 and have the following patch or equivalent installed: Version: Server_R410_2_SP1_ISR159842_Cardholder_Services_Update.exe

2.2Is EBI Running #

For Cardholder Services to function properly, the EBI server has to be running. It should look something like this:


ebi server

2.3Test Harness #

The Cardholder Services installation comes with a Test Harness application to check functionality. It is typically located at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Honeywell\Server\user\CardholderServicesTestHarness.exe
Usage of the test harness is not covered here, but if you can “Get All Types” on the Cardholders tab, you are communicating with EBI through Cardholder Services correctly.

2.4SQL Scripts #

The EBI install should come with two SQL Scripts to enable the Users location and Zones as well as access rights / zones as UserTables through Cardholder Services. These files are named and should have been made available with the updated patch from Honeywell.

These scripts should be run on the EBI database by the SQL Server administrator.

3.XPressEntry Data Managerシンクロナイザーセットアップ #

XPressEntry and EBI communicate through the EBI Cardholder Services interface. From the XPressEntry side, this done by a module called Data Manager. This section will describe how to set up and get the Data Manager running for EBI.

3.1XPressEntry同期を有効にする #

XPressEntryのメインページから、XPressEntry / Settings(CTRL + S)に移動し、


xpressentry synchronization honeywell ebi

3.2データマネージャタブ #

From the Settings Page Select the Data Manager Tab. When it is empty it looks like this:


xpressentry set up honeywell ebi

From the ‘Type’ Combo Box, select “Honeywell EBI”.


xpressentry set up type honeywell ebi

3.2.1Update Frequency #

更新頻度をシステムの更新頻度に設定します。 一度に1つのアップデートしか実行できないことに注意してください。この値が非常に低い場合、システムは絶えずアップデートしようとします(これは常に問題ではありません)。

For EBI Installations, we want to set both the Activity Update Frequency and the Full Sync Update frequency. Activity Update will fill the locations of the users in EBI at the given frequency. Full Sync will do the rest of the updates. Partial Synchronization is not used with EBI.

3.2.2ログレベル #

必要なログレベルを選択します。 システムを設定するときは、SQLが推奨されるログレベルです。 システムが起動し、必要に応じて機能すると、CRITICALがデフォルトのログレベルになります。

3.2.3Activity Synchronizing #

Activity Synchronizing is not done with EBI at this time and these checkboxes will have no effect when you have EBI selected and set up.

3.3Honeywell EBI Setup Page #

Press the “Setup Data Manager” button to get the EBI specific setup screen.


honeywell ebi data manager set up

The first thing to do from this page is fill in the primary EBI server which has Cardholder Services running.

3.3.1Important Fields #

There are 3 important fields to fill out on this page:

  1. Primary Server – the name or IP address of the primary EBI server
  2. Username – A valid administrator on the EBI server
  3. Password – The password for that user.

These credentials should be supplied by your EBI administrator.

Once you’ve filled out the basic information, the button: “Get Server Information” or “Test Connect” will attempt to connect to the server.
Redundancy information will be automatically filled out if you press the “Get Server Information” button. If your connection fails, check the text box at the bottom of the screen for information on the failure.

3.3.2その他のフィールド #

Compare Transit Date – should be checked. It will compare the Users/Zones TRANSIT_DATE field from EBI with the last scan date in XPressEntry. The later date will be applied as the user current location.

User Tables – These fields should not change from the defaults unless the SQL Server Administrator specifies a change.

When you are done with this step, press OK to send the setup information back to XPressEntry Data Manager.

IMPORTANT: You MUST press the “Save and apply settings”button for any data manager changes to take effect!

After you’ve saved, you can press the “Full Sync Now”button to synchronize XPressEntry with EBI. Make sure you’ve set the synchronization update frequency on the main Data Manager tab.

When the Data Manager is setup and running with EBI, it should look something like this:


xpressentry set up page save and apply

4.XPressEntryデータの設定 #

Once the EBI System is set up and synchronizing, you will see the EBI data represented in XPressEntry under the Add/Edit Info tab. Data which is imported from EBI cannot be changed by default and is grayed out / read-only.

4.1外部データの編集を許可する #

同期後に何らかの理由でこのデータを編集できるようにするには、メイン設定タブの設定を使用します。

4.2読者 #

Readers for EBI Synchronization are strictly an XPressEntry entity. You can set up your readers to have one or many different configurations at a given time. This is done by selecting a Reader Profile for the reader.

XPressEntryには、物理​​リーダーと論理リーダーの2種類のリーダーがあります。

4.2.1物理リーダー #

XPressEntryシステムの物理的なリーダーは、サーバーと通信するように設定されたハンドヘルドまたはその他のデバイスです。 これは、デバイスのGUIDフィールドによって一意に識別されます。
非常に多くの場合、物理的な読者は、次のような長い/無意味な名前を持つでしょう: 570069006E00430045000000-00-008703124863。 これらの読者は、同期した後、GUIDをデバイスのデフォルト名として使用しています。

4.2.2論理リーダー #

Logical readers are readers in the system which are usually placeholders for physical readers.


xpressentry reader name

4.2.3物理リーダと論理リーダのマージ #

注:このプロセスは元に戻せません!
To merge the logical and physical readers do the following:

  1. Select the Logical Reader from the Add/Edit Info Readers tab
  2. Under “Merge with Physical Reader”, select the physical reader as identified by its name (typically the GUID) from the drop-down list “Reader Name”.
  3. 「マージを実行」を押します。

マージしている正確なリーダーのGUIDがわからない場合は、「詳細」タブのセットアップページのハンドヘルドデバイスでリーダーGUIDを使用できます。

4.3リーダープロファイル #

All readers in the XPressEntry system need a reader profile set up for them. These can be shared across readers with identical responsibilities. See the main XPressEntry manual for more information.

4.4ドア #

Doors are portals from one zone to a different zone. They are a logical way to move from one zone to another. They are primarily used by XPressEntry for handhelds in Entry/Exit mode.

ドアを「入る」ユーザーは、スタートゾーン→エンドゾーンに進みます。 ドアを出ているユーザーは、「終了ゾーン」→「開始ゾーン」

When using XPressEntry for Entry/Exit mode, you should set up XPressEntry to have at least one door and make sure the zones make sense for the EBI integration. If you’ve already synchronized the activities from EBI, you should see the EBI zones here.

4.5ゾーン #

XPressEntryには2種類のゾーンがあります。 「外」ゾーンは、XPressEntryが追跡している場所の外にあるエリアを募集して表現するために使用されます。 その他のゾーンはすべてシステムの一部とみなされます。 占有率は、非外圏にいるユーザーのみに追跡されます。

As explained below, all zones are coming directly from EBI. The Groups are the same as the Behavior Models in EBI. This information can all be verified in XPressEntry, but it is set in the EBI system.
