  • Need Software for Access Control Takeover

    Hello all, I've been reading on this forum for quite some time now and finally registered an account. You guys are very knowlegable and have helped me in the past wiithout posting just reading past threads.

    heres my issue, I am taking over an access control system which another small company (like myself) setup, the thing is the building has access control and readers on most entries, but they do not have an IT room. The other company/installer would just come out with his laptop and add/delete users and make adjustments there. Now I need to do the same just on a PC I've built for them , this way they can do it there without having to call anyone out for thiese little mods.
    The name of the system is ITI2000 , i've done some heavy searching on all the popular search engines and forums, only to come up with ITI was bought out by GE and before that another company. I cannot seem to find any website for them that is up and running or software sites.
    you guys have helped me indirectly in the past maybe someone can help me again. thanks in advance.

    gesecurity.com Which model panels are they? The 451's don't use software, just terminal mode, such as hyperterminal.

    But you will probably have to call them, as most of the ITI stuff is obsolete. Some of it they don't support anymore.

    Were you able to get the database from the other company? If not, how many cardholders, and doors and schedules do you think you have? Because you probably can't pull the program out of those panels (unless it's the 451), so if you can't get it from them, you may have to rebuild it.

      its the commander 2000 , nope no database is available to me since the other company only worked from there personnal laptop then they would leave with it. I will most likely need to set up a day or 2 to have everyone will scan there fob and i record there info.

      so nothing on the software huh?

        Let me see what I can find. Maybe my memory is playing tricks. I could have sworn the Commander 2000 was a little self contained alarm system, pre-Simon.

          hey dude, im sorry i was given some wrong info. its IEI not ITI and I did a search for access control software and found it in 5 minutes and have it downloaded. now my next question is will i be able to just go in and plug in and download the database or will i need to start a new database of users doors, etc??

          thanks for your help man, and sorry for the confussion.

            If you don't mind, send me a link so I know we're talking about the same thing.

            Most access control software won't let you retrieve the profram from the control panels, only the history. So that could be an issue.

                I've never used HubMan access control, from IEI. But I've got a friend who uses it all the time, so I gave him a call. He said you can import the settings from the system, into a text file. It won't give you the user names. And you'll have to use that information to build a new database. You will want to do that before you program anything. You don't want to wipe out what you have.

                How big is the system, # of doors, users, access groups? I hope not to big for your sake. But as long as they're paying you, it doesn't matter. I guess the parting of ways with the other company was on bad terms?

                Good luck.

                  yes i think the parting was on bad terms, yes ill be paid by the hr. $75.00per, prob around 200 users, 10 doors , 1 elevator, 3 groups (resident, staff, admin)

                  i figured i was able to download a database but wouldnt have the names since the anmes are usually saved on pc and not the panel. i dont mind, it will just give me a 2day project and @ $75/hr ill make out ok, this is for a condo on ft. lauderdale which houses 60+ yr olds so it show be about 10hrs totals(2days) nice paycheck now adays.
