For example, in the image above, the administrator may create an All Users Report with the added filter criteria of Department is Marketing.

    This release of Brivo Onair updates the functionality of the Activity Log providing real-time event streaming. Additionally, Brivo Onair introduces Bluetooth reader support, as well as addressing system performance improvements and bug fixes.

    Improvements

    • Event Streaming
      • – The Streaming Events status displays in the upper left hand corner. The status will show as Active if the activity log is being viewed in real time. The status will show as Queued if the administrator has taken any actions on the activity log page, such as scrolling down the page. If the status is Queued, once the administrator returns to the top of the page, the status will return to Active.
        – The User Image box automatically displays a user image (if there is one associated with the credential) when that credential is used (so long as Streaming Events is in an Active state). It also allows an administrator to view a stored user image from the user profile after clicking NEXT TO the user name in the User/Event column of the Activity Log. If there is no user image attached to the user name, the user image box will remain blank.
    • Bluetooth Reader Support
      • – For ACS6000 and ACS300 panels only, if using a Bluetooth reader, enter the Bluetooth reader serial number located on the sticker on the back of the reader into the Bluetooth Reader ID field. This is a sixteen-digit number (ignore any dashes and enter only the numbers).
        NOTE: Bluetooth Reader functionality requires the control panel to have 5.2.7.2 firmware or later.
    • Control panels in Brivo Onair now display the MAC address of the control panel to comply with end user requests for better network visibility.

    Fixes

    Brivo Onair 11.23 | 02/13/2018

    This release of Brivo Onair adds a new maximum request-to-exit extension option allows for doors to relock after a set period of time even if in an active REX state. When viewing users in groups, administrators are now given the option to remove specific users directly from the group right from that page. From within the webCLI interface, administrators are now given the option to change the default user name and password to access the webCLI interface. Additionally, this release introduces rate-limiting (spamming filter) for panel startup, communication loss/restore, tamper, wiring (I/O), and AC power lost/restored events, as well as addressing behind the scenes system performance improvements as well as bug fixes.

    Improvements

    • The new Maximum REX Extension field lets you set a maximum length of time for the complete pass through period in the presence of continual REX triggers being received by the control panel. This ensures that even if the REX trigger is stuck in an “active” state or is being triggered over and over, the total pass through period is limited to the Max REX Extension plus the pass through period.
    • When viewing users in a particular group, a new Remove User from Group button has been added to the page, allowing an administrator to remove one or more users from that group rather than having to visit each User page and individually removing each user from the group.

      NOTE: In order to use the following two improvements, the control panel(s) require firmware version 5.2.6.2 or later.

    • Brivo Onair has introduced the capability to monitor outbound traffic and detect if IP addresses other than approved Brivo Host Addresses are being contacted. If an unknown (or unapproved) address is contacted, notifications can be created making the administrator aware of the unauthorized transmission.
    • Brivo Onair provides the option to reduce repetitive postings concerning tamper, wiring (I/O), and AC power lost/restored events by implementing the option to limit the number of times per minute such an event will be posted to the activity log or will trigger an email notification.

    Fixes

    • Fixed an issue where the ‘performed by’ field did not have an option to select a user.
    • Corrected minor typographical errors on several pages throughout the application.
    • Fixed an issue where dropdown lists failed to display on the View Report Configuration page.
    • Fixed an issue affecting ACS300 controllers where administrators could not create a Wiegand door device if an Allegion RSI gateway had already been selected.
    • Fixed an issue where the Journal and Journal reports failed to report the promotion of an assistant administrator to senior administrator.
