BROADCASTING EMPLOYEE TEMPLATES TO LAURANKA COMMS SIGMA AND ALL SIGMA, MORPHOWAVE AND VISIONPASS READERS YOU MAY BE RUNNING
(Lauranka COMMS Sigma)
The following guide assumes you have already installed
your Sigma Fingerscan, VisionPass Facial Reader or MorphoWave Compact Reader
(if not please see the Installation Wizard)
Available from Version 18.104.22.168
To Broadcast in one action ALL user Employee Registrations across all (same type) Readers
STEP 1. Open your Lauranka COMMS Sigma Software
STEP 2. Select 'Employees' from the 'Main Menu'
STEP 3. Next press 'Broadcast' (middle-right of screen) and press 'Yes' to start sending/transferring Employee Templates From/to all (same type) Readers.
This function allows you to broadcast all employee registrations back to the lauranka COMMS Sigma Software and then across to all (same type) Readers.
The function is designed to work in a very specific way so please read the below and understand the process by which this works.
We Upload First - Starting at the first Terminal in the list (and repeated for each subsequent Reader of any type) we compare what is backed up in Lauranka COMMS Sigma and if necessary upload an individuals (biometric) Template/Profile back to Lauranka COMMS Sigma Software.
A Backup to the Software of an employee will occur if either they don't exist in the Software but are in the Reader, or the number of (biometric) templates against the individual in the Software is less than the Reader.
We Download Second - Like the Upload, starting at the first Terminal in the list (and repeated for each subsequent Reader of any type) we compare what is backed up in Lauranka COMMS Sigma and if necessary download an individuals (biometric) Template/Profile to the Reader.
A Download to the Reader of an employee will occur if either they don't exist in the Reader but are in the Software, or the number of (biometric) templates against the individual in the Reader is less than in the Software.
To automatically run the Broadcast function, simply set up a Task via Windows Task Scheduler at the desired Broadcast times.
The command line to run the Broadcast routine is:
"C:\Lauranka\Lauranka Comms\CommsSigma.exe" broadcast
Please remember that if you have installed Comms to a non-default location the 'C:\Lauranka\Lauranka Comms\' part of the line will need to be altered to reflect the different location.
With the above command line the Broadcast process is only active and running for the period of the command.
Final Important Note
Given the volume of data this function may need to send and the time required when scheduling or running this task/process it would be a good idea to do so at a time where the Software/System as a whole is at lowest use (i.e. middle of the night, etc.). During any process between the COMMS Software and Readers we lock out the ability to run parallel functions. Therefore any functions scheduled to run during these times should be put off until the completion of the process.
