Ingress Online Activation
Ingress is a genuine software by FingerTec. Every FingerTec ac-
cess control model comes bundled with a unique license key.
To start using the terminal with Ingress, you must connect the
terminal to Ingress and perform online activation. Ingress reads
the serial number of your terminal and sends it for verification
at the FingerTec server via Internet.
In case you do not have an Internet connection, you would
need to do offline activation. Please send the serial number
and models of your terminals to your local resellers or
to request for a product key and activation key.

tion and set the baudrate: Press Menu > Options > Comm Opt > RS232 >
Change the RS232 connection to Y. To change baudrate: Press Menu >
Options > Comm Opt > Baudrate > Change the Baudrate accordingly.
USING RS485 CONNECTION: For connection via RS485, baudrate is also
the determinant of communication speed between the terminal and the
software but the speed must be according to the speed of the converter.
Check your converter for the speed. To turn on RS485 connection and
set the baudrate: Press Menu > Options > Comm Opt > RS232 > Change
the RS485 connection to Y. To change baudrate: Press Menu > Options >
Comm Opt > Baudrate > Change the Baudrate accordingly.
Using USB to Download/Upload Data
