Brivo Onsite Server 3.4.2 | 12/0 1/20 17

Expanding our integration with Allegion products, Brivo Onsite Server now includes Allegion LE lock support. Brivo also continues its dedication to improved panel security by introducing reporting features for unauthorized IP access by our control panels. If a Brivo control panel begins accessing IP addresses not approved by Brivo, an administrator can now be notified via email and through the activity log of the unauthorized access attempts. This release also introduces rate limiting (spamming filter) for tamper, wiring (I/O), and AC power lost/restored events, and the ACS6000 and ACS300 panels now list available SSIDs as part of Wi-Fi setup. Additionally, this release addresses bug fixes and other minor improvements to system performance.

Improvements

  • Brivo Onsite Server now provides integration and support for Allegion LE locks.
  • Brivo Onsite Server 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 Onsite Server 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.
  • Brivo Onsite Server provides a list of available SSIDs for ACS6000 and ACS300 panels when the administrator is choosing to connect to a wireless network.
