3.2 Setup Devices
This section describes how to use BioStar's device wizard to search for and add new devices, as well as how to add 3rd party RF devices. In addition, the procedures that follow describe basic configuration of devices within the BioStar system. For more information about configuring devices, see sections 3.9.3 and 5.1.

3.2.1

Search for and Add Devices

BioStar includes a handy wizard for finding and adding devices. Before starting a search for new devices, verify the device connections. If you have multiple devices to add, it may be helpful to prepare a list of device locations, IDs, and IP addresses prior to adding them. To search for devices and add them to the BioStar system, 1. Click Device in the shortcut pane. 2. In the Task pane, click Add Device. 3. When the wizard appears, click the radio button next to a connection type: • LAN - Choose this option to search for devices connected via Ethernet or Wireless LAN.

Serial - Choose this option to search for devices connected to a client PC via RS485 and RS232 or slave devices connected via RS485 to another device that is connected to a client PC (see section 3.2.2). USB Device - Choose this option to search for devices connected via USB ports.
Note: BioStar versions 1.3 and higher include drivers for connecting BioStation and D-Station devices via USB in Windows 7. These drivers will not work with older versions of BioStar. If you are using an older version of BioStar, be sure to install the correct USB drivers.

Virtual USB Device - Choose this option to search for virtual devices that you have added to a USB drive.

4. Click Next. 5. For USB or Virtual USB searches, skip to step 7. If you are searching for devices connected via LAN or serial ports, set advanced search criteria: • LAN - Select whether to search for devices using TCP or UDP protocols. When you select TCP, you can specify an IP address range, the type of device you are searching for (BioStation/D-Station: 1470, BioEntry Plus/BioLite Net/Xpass: 1471, or Custom: enter manually), and the port to search with. If you select UDP, you can search for devices only in the same subnet.

3. Setup the BioStar System

Serial - Specify a COM port (or select All port) and a baud rate.

6. Click Next. 7. When BioStar completes the search, you can specify network settings as described below. Click a device name in the list on the left and then configure the settings as required:
Note: If you change the network settings for a device at this point, the device will be removed from the device list. To add the device in the following steps, you must search for the device again. You need not and should not add devices with server mode. The devices will connect to the server by themselves, and will be listed under the BioStar Server on the device tree. If you are trying to add devices with server mode, the process will fail. •

DHCP or Static IP - If you choose to use the DHCP option, the device will automatically acquire network settings from the DHCP server. If you do not use DHCP, you must configure the network settings manually. Direct connection - This is the default connection option. With this option, the BioStar client will connect directly to the device. If you choose this type of connection, the BioStar client must be running to retrieve the log records from the device. Server connection - If you choose this option, the device will automatically connect to the BioStar server. If you configure the server IP address and port correctly, log records from the device will be gathered at the server, regardless of whether or not the BioStar client is online. This option may also be useful if your network configuration requires you to connect devices with private IP addresses (for example, over a WAN) to a server with a public IP address. This option also provides SSL encryption for BioStation devices.

8. Click Next. 9. Select the device or devices to add by clicking the checkboxes next to the device IDs.

10. Click Add to add the devices to the BioStar system.

Change Wiegand Formats

From the BioStar interface, you can configure the Wiegand format of a device to control device inputs and outputs. To configure the Wiegand format, 1. Click Device in the shortcut pane. 2. In the navigation pane, click a device name. 3. Click the Wiegand tab in the Device pane.

4. Click Change Format. This will open the Wiegand Configuration wizard. 5. Click a radio button to select one of the following formats: • 26-bit Standard - this format is the most widely used and consists of an 8-bit FC code and a 16-bit ID. You cannot change the bit definition of the format or the parity bits of this format.

Pass-through - use this format to customize only the ID bits. During verification, if the ID is recognized, the Wiegand input string will pass through in its original form. You cannot set the parity bits or alternative values of this format. By definition, the pass-through format is useful only when the operation mode is one-to-one (1:1). In one-to-many (1:N) mode, non-ID bits are set to 0. Custom - with a custom format, you can define the ID bits, parity bits, and alternative values. During verification, the device will first check the parity of an input string. If the parity is correct, the device will check the ID. Only when all verification has been completed will the device send an output string, which can also be customized to differ from the input string.
