Evolution System is NBN Compatible
Mar 17 2014
As the NBN system continues to roll out in Australia we get plenty of questions if the CS Technologies Evolution Building Access Control System is compatible with the new NBN.

The answer is yes.

Evolution Software to the controllers via IP has no problems running on the NBN.

For Alarms being sent to monitoring stations via the Emizon TCD unit this is also not problems (the Emizon TCD was designed as a replacement for diallers that will be affected by the NBN rollout).

Evolution has now been successfully upgraded to the Visual Studio 2012 development environment.

Running Evolution as a Service on Windows 7
Oct 10 2012
Windows 7 runs services different to previous windows and by default will not allow Evolution to run in user accounts. See below for the registry manipulation that can allow windows 7 to run it correctly.

To start and stop services in windows 7 open the task manager and view the services tab. You can stop the evolution sevice here. After stopping the service you can then run evolution normally.

If you are just requiring evolution to run on startup then the best way is to put a short cut of

Evolution - Timezone Status Colour
Aug 09 2012
You may have recently noticed the system timezones are now colour coded and change colour when valid or out of timezone.

Red - The timezone is currently not valid
Green - The timezone is currently active.

This is only a software visual indicator for the timezone. It does not necessarily mean the timezone is actually active or not valid. (Evo controllers function on their own).

This new feature was added with the new OTIS Compass High Level Interface so you can verify if the software th
New Evolution Distributor Packaging Boxes
Aug 03 2012
Not news worthy but we are now shipping our EVO Controllers in new boxes with an external sticker to distributors.

The serial number will be external making it easier to distinguish the product. This should help with distributor stock control and also help protect the controllers better in shipping.

Indala 27-bit Reader Support Added
Jul 23 2012
Indala 27-bit Wiegand readers are not very popular in Australia but we have been requested and have now added support back into our Evolution Network Controllers to read these readers.

The special 27-bit format requires a special readers and specially programmed cards (one of the main reasons why they are not that popular).

The 27-bit format was introduced back in the old days when access control systems were not so smart and stored the facility code and card numbers separate. The scare ta
