Standalone access control is redefining security. The Alarm Lock Trilogy DL6100 represents a breakthrough in this regard, permitting programming and uploading/downloading activity logs of the access control unit through a network.
The DL6100 combines and expands on the advantages of standalone access control with the advantages of a networked access control by allowing the designer to combine the family of Trilogy and Networx solutions under a single database and the Windows DL software management suite.
The evolution has occurred amid a variety of social and technical transitions our industry, culture and world have experienced over the last few decades. No one element was singularly responsible for the changes. It was like synergy.
The Trilogy family of standalone access controls now includes the DL6100 Wireless Trilogy. All Trilogy Locks operate wirelessly. Except for the newest DL6100, they do require to be locally programmed, meaning a programmer must be brought to each Trilogy for uploading and downloading.
The DL6100 offers the additional ability of initiating a Global Passage and Lockdown to some or all wireless locks on the system. Global Lockdown is a much sought-after management feature used to secure a premises in a crisis. It is important to note that these Global commands may be issued from any DL6100 on the network, whether the host PC is running or not.
Trilogy Networx is an open architecture wireless access control solution which can be readily integrated for surveillance, security, and life safety. No wiring, splitters or repeaters, extra power supplies or controller panels are needed.
Used with the Trilogy Networx™ 6100, 6500, ETDLN and ETPDLN series door locks, DL-Wrndows version 4.0.0 software (or later) allows you to upload and download programming features wirelessly using a computer network.
Connected to this network is an intermediate device called a Gateway (AL-IME) that communicates via a private wireless signal to a radio located inside each door lock. It is in this way, the software allows full programming and control of each lock in the system.
Locks support up to 5,000 users with three- to six-digit numeric PIN codes and PDL-Series also support prox ID card users (virtually all HID™ format proximity technology ID cards, fobs, credentials).
Each installed system can contain from 1 to 32 Gateways¬ — ¬and each Gateway can control up to 63 locks¬ — ¬for a maximum of 2,000 locks per account.
The DL-Windows software can in theory support an unlimited number of accounts.
Each Networx™ lock can contain up to 5,000 users.
NETWORX™ enables users to wirelessly change users, schedules, lock features or retrieve audit trails of up to 35,000 events/lock from any networked PC.
WIRELESS LOCK CONFIGURATION OVERVIEW
Trilogy Locks come in several configurations which allow the installer to deliver the features required by the client at the most competitive price point.
The Trilogy Networx™ PDL6100 and DL6100 series door locks allow you to upload and download programming features wirelessly using a computer connected to a computer network without the cables and data transfer modules typically required for traditional standalone locks.
System management activities including retrieving logs, downloading User Codes and program features are possible over the network.
Alarm Lock’s DL-Windows software must be installed on the computer to be used for managing the Wireless Trilogy. The computer connects to the network and then through an intermediate device called a Gateway that communicates to a radio located inside each door lock.
Each Wireless Trilogy is factory assigned a unique serial number (similar to a MAC typically assigned to computer hardware) which the DL-Windows uses to sniff out and identify Wireless Trilogy devices in its network.
If you already are using Trilogy Locks in a premises and are planning to upgrade to DL6100’s, you can use the same database to manage all the Trilogy units.
