Today we are releasing CredoID v4.12, which adds support for Azure Access controllers BLU-IC2 and BLU-IC4 and enables new alerts feature.
Designed and manufactured in California, US, Azure Access controllers meet the highest security and performance standards:
Utilizing both IP and/or RS-485 connections for controllers and modules (except for single-door BLU-IO21, which is RS-485 only), Azure Access extends the capabilities of the classical access control topology. You now have even more options to run cabling (or re-use an existing one) to achieve required setup.
CredoID software makes the addition of Azure Access controllers seamless by incorporating device support into already familiar configuration workflow.
With CredoID v4.12 release, a new Alerts module introduces customizable alert levels, sounds and persistent notifications, which may require Operator action to be taken.
CredoID Alerts module requires purchasing a license. It enables the feature for all system Operators and does not have usage limitations within the system.
CredoID v4.12 release marks the end of support for MS SQL.
What does it mean for you?
If you are a new user of CredoID v4.12 (i.e. you have a fresh installation), you don’t have to do anything about it. PostgreSQL is the default database engine, which will be installed during CredoID installation process.
If you are running a CredoID v4.9, and you already are using PostgreSQL, you can proceed with CredoID update following the regular update process.
If you are running CredoID prior to v4.9 or you are using a later version with MS SQL, you have to update CredoID to v4.11.288 (the latest one with MS SQL support), perform DB migration using the free tool, then install CredoID v4.12.
As always, CredoID updates are free for the first 12 months after purchase, so we encourage you to take this opportunity and move your access control data to the excellent expandable and free open-source solution.
