Entré™ 8.3 Offers Multiple Programming Updates for XR Panel Compatibility
If you’ve previously purchased an Entré license, are current with your Entré support agreement, and have an Entré certified technician, you’ll now be able to install or update the new Entré Version 8.3 and have the benefit of the panel programming updates we released earlier this spring with the XR Series Version 191.
For example, Entré 8.3 adds the option of cellular as the primary or backup path. If the network fails, this ensures the panels will continue sending events over the cellular path. Entré also supports other XR 191 features including the addition of an Instant Zone Type and increased door schedules from 8 to 16 per door.
Other XR Panel Programming Options:
- Zone Activity Hours (XR550 Version 107 and higher)
- Programming the Keypad Armed LED option
- “Use False Alarm Question” option
- “Allow Own User Code Change” option
What Else Does Entré 8.3 Add?
New SQL-Based Report for Remote Firmware Updates — This report includes Status of Update, which identifies which panel updates were successful or failed. It also includes the Operator Name, Panel Name, Current Firmware, and Previous Firmware.
Multi-Panel Firmware Update — You now have the ability to set up an automation rule to perform the panel firmware update. You also have the ability to set the encryption type in the communications path to the monitoring center receiver.
