[Micronet] Trilogy lock computer?

tedcrum
We'll be getting a Trilogy non-prox, non-network lock for one of our
interior rooms, and I'm wondering if any Micronet folk can tell me
what I will need in a portable computer to manage it. Interface (USB,
serial?) OS (Win7, 8; or does old software require something else?)

Can I use a vile, first-generation netbook?

Thanks,

Re: [Micronet] Trilogy lock computer?

Ted,

We've been using the system here at the Graduate School of Education using a Mac, VMWare Fusion and Windows 7. It requires a serial port for the devices, but we received a USB adapter. We had to install drivers to make it all work. When we were inquiring with someone else who was using it, all they needed was an old Pentium PC and Windows XP to run it. Our complication was using Macs. It was a bit of a learning curve to get Fusion, Windows 7and the Trilogy lock software to work, but again, if you're using a PC in the first place, you probably won't have the difficulties I did.

Ted,

If you're not programming many codes into the lock, you can just enter them right through the PIN pad.  No need to bother with DL-Windows software in that case.  

I'm also using a Macbook running DL-Windows in VMWare Fusion the same as Beth, but we are using the prox readers.

Re: [Micronet] Trilogy lock computer?

Beth Muramoto
Erol and Ted,

Yes, we're also using the prox readers, but are using the full features of DL-Windows so that we can control access both letting people have access and also denying them when abuse occurs. I think there were other "advanced" features that I'm forgetting.
