Effective November 10th, 2021, all Entré Security & Access Management software will be manufactured with updated Version 8.9 (11/5/21).
Entré 8.9 is compatible with Version 212 firmware and lower, but only features found in Version 202 firmware and lower are available.
Encrypted Communications: With Entré 8.9 (11/5/21), any direct cellular communications can be encrypted between Entré and the XR control panel.
Delete Panel Schedules and User Code Profiles: Previously, panel schedules could only be disabled. Now, you can fully delete a panel schedule. Turn on Allow deletion of items that normally may only be disabled, right-click the panel schedule, and select Delete.
The same update applies to user code profiles. Turn on Allow deletion of items that normally may only be disabled, right-click the user code profile, and select Delete.
Calculated Data Length: With some XR Series panels, data packets that exceeded the expected length would inadvertently be cut short. Due to this, some messages were rendered invalid. In Entré 8.9 (11/5/21), the ability to send varying data packet lengths has been improved, ensuring all data packets are accurately received.
Improved Copy and Prune Functionality: With Entré 8.9 (11/5/21), the Copy and Prune function continues to run even when the panel is offline.
