Three Steps Required for 701Server & 701Client software update to 10.3 Version

Software version 10.3 and after SOYAL software implement multi-Area mode to support over 4000 doors in one system. Thus, there are three steps required for updating to Software version 10.3 and after.

After upgrading to software version 10.3, all of Controller will be automatically grouped as Area00 by default.

STEP 1.  Enable Multi Area Mode (Area.Door)

Software 10.3 and after 701Server and 701Client access point composed of Area > Node ID > Subnode ID (if there is control panel and access controller wired to it) > door number. In previous software version, Door Number setting is composed of Node ID and Door Number, but in software version 10.3 Door Number setting is changed into Area and Door Number. It is required to set Door Number for every access controller to distinguish between one another and there should not be the same Door Number within the same Area.

Difference between Software Ver. 10.3 before and after can be seen when editing door number in 701Client Setting:

Software ver. 10.3 there are total of 4064 Door Number available to assign in one system. Each Area consists of 254 Doors and exceed the number can be assigned to the next Area.


Area0 Door number 1~254

Area1 Door number 1~254

Area2 Door number 1~254

Area15 Door number 1~254
