A high-quality smart building and smart security system usually need to be achieved through the integration of multiple heterogeneous systems. At present, the common AIoT Internet of Things, cloud property management, central monitoring, smart monitoring, time attendance, visitor management, smart access control and other system interfaces usually adopt different standards, such as JSON, XML, Modbus TCP/RTU, ODBC Database, Wiegand, SOYAL Protocol, etc.
There is no one could guarantee that integrating many heterogeneous platforms on your own will be completed even after a life of strenuous development.
In order to solve everyone’s hardship and help everyone quickly integrating cross-platform system, through 701Server TCP Link feature, each manufacturer only needs to be responsible for providing their most expertise area, and they can easily and quickly integrating and bridge over above systems.
Providing a great tool for the majority of system integration developer to quickly complete complex heterogeneous integration systems.You and I can work together hand in hand to contribute to the world of IoT and security control.
WHY CHOOSE SOYAL FOR SYSTEM INTEGRATION?
No Exclusivity, Open Integration Resources
SOYAL provides open resources such as communication gateway and protocol document that compatible with other system integration. Or else, you could easily integrate SOYAL with other third party integration system by yourselves. SOYAL provides various integration method that varies according to client’s existed system and interface. Integration with BMS, Time Attendance, NVR/DVR, Payment Management System, and Visitor Management System is easier with SOYAL.
1. MODBUS TCP TO MODBUS RTU
Conversion from Modbus TCP into Modbus RTU that usually used for devices that equipped with Modbus TCP, wired to BMS and SCADA system required conversion to Modbus RTU.
2. TCP/IP TO WIEGAND
SOYAL AR-727CM-IO provides multiple credential and authorization with RFID possible. AI devices such as License Plate Recognition, IP Camera, QRCODE, or even Face Recognition device that built-in TCP/IP interface could easily converted to Wiegand interface. The conversion will allows AI devices integrate with SOYAL RFID access controller under one system.
Suitable for transmission of large file or data with complexity, often used for WEB platform data transmission and integration application. Most suitable for integration system with manufacturer of face recognition that transmit face data and license plate recognition that transmit vehicles license plate data.
JSON is a lightweight and the most simple information data exchange format that can be used for third party platform to integrate with SOYAL access control system. Whether it is access control personnel data, entry and exit transaction records, access permissions, door groups, timezones, controller status, IO linkage, download visitor data; is available to conduct, which is very suitable for cloud platform user operators.
A common and widely use communication protocol in industrial control, through 701Server SOYAL TCP Link feature, directly bridge over Modbus TCP command to directly control access controller. This will allow heterogeneous platform with Modbus TCP integration to obtain the access control controller status, remote open door, and other functions. It is very suitable for industrial graphics and data acquisition (SCADA) system integration and smart access control
6. SOYAL SOFTWARE
Beside Integration, SOYAL built-in supporting software for access control system, mobile APP, and other software tools.
• Free to choose Database mode or File System mode
User can choose Database mode or File System mode according to needs and requirement. Built-in the same operation user interface for both modes
provides seamless upgrade from File System to Database easy and can be done without relearning.
• 701SERVER TCP-LINK & 701 CLIENT TCP-LINK
When enabling Database Mode, 701Server set as Server mode can support multiple remote 701Client connections at the same time, provides centralized and unified system management that linked headquarter to branch office across the world. Through local or remote 701Client, you can edit data, obtain real time status, and generate reports syn chronically.
• Site Plan Mapping
701Client provides interactive graphical control and real-time site plan overview. Through multiple site plan design and compatibility to SOYAL I/O devices and Access Controller’s IO series, get a quick glance over all of the site plan status situation in real time such as door, lightning, and ventilator status (open or close).
At the same time provides remote control setting over open or close status and quick problem solving such as alarm and fire event through pop-up message.
7. ONE WAY HOSTING
A simply integration of retrieving transaction log from access controller and send it to the HOST. It is mostly used in NVR/DVR system for integration with CCTV surveillance camera, by showing the transaction log data for OSD (On Screen Display). SOYAL provides total two ports in total to work as a redundant port to keep system running when one of the ports fails.
8. TWO WAY HOSTING
Same method and function with one way hosting except two way hosting offer safest way when receiving data from SOYAL access controller. it required acknowledgement from HOST (third party) when transferring data to make sure there is no missing log, data, or message transferred.
9. STANDARD POLLING
Reader takes responsibility to control access depending on the white list downloaded from HOST. In this situation, Reader works as standalone. HOST get the oldest event log from Reader by polling through command 0x25. When Host receives the oldest event log, Host will save it and then deletes it by command 0x37. However, when no log in Reader, Reader will still send a ACK command.
