You can use the virtual credential from the mobile device to gain access to the doors assigned.

Here you can configure the virtual credential and download the configuration parameters which required to configure the readers.

  • The Configuration > System Settings pane is displayed.
  1. Under Settings, click on Virtual Credentials.
  1. Make the following settings:



Credential Length

Security Manager creates the virtual credential with a fixed length. It is therefore necessary to state the length supported by the PACS concerned.

Enter a number (e.g. 14) in the text field. NOTICE! Please use only the AW146 conversion table and copy the corresponding credential number length from SIPORT.NOTICE!

Credential Format

Security Manager typically creates alphanumeric virtual credentials, i.e. consisting of upper case and lower case letters as well as numbers, for example LG12xFXz. This enables a large number of character combinations and helps to avoid duplications. If the PACS concerned only supports numerical virtual credentials, this must be stated here.

Select the entry in the drop-down list corresponding to the credential number configuration in PACS.

  • Prefix LG plus characters [0-9a-zA-Z] for alphanumeric credential numbers
  • Prefix 99 plus numeric characters [0-9] for numeric credential numbers

Enable Version Number

If the version number of the badge is checked in the PACS, you must also activate this function for the virtual credential. By activating the check box, the version number is assigned to the specified credential number.

You can choose one of the following options:

  • No: Disables the ability to change the version number to the virtual credential.
  • Yes: Enables the ability to change the version number to the virtual credential for the Siveillance Access Mobile smartphone app.
  • Append&Show: Enables the ability to change the version number to the virtual credential for both, the Siveillance Access Mobile smartphone app and the transmission to PACS.

If Yes or Append&Show is selected, the version number will change to the assigned credential number. In this case the number entered in the Credential Length field must be increased by 2.

NOTICE! A fixed value of 01 is used as the version number and cannot be changed.

The Virtual Credentials also shows other configuration parameters: Project ID, Mobile App ID and File ID. This data, along with Key Set, is used to configure the reader. This data can be downloaded with the Download button.

  • Click Download to download the configuration parameters.
  • The parameters are downloaded. This data needs to be used to configure the reader. See PACS specific documents.
  • You have generated the virtual credential.
Avoiding Costs

The configuration in System settings can be updated if necessary. In this case all virtual certificates are recalled and then generated again. This can lead to considerable costs.
