Monthly Borealis Release: December Update
1.0 Detailed Door Status Information
Borealis now provides detailed door status information for all controller types, which is updated in real-time. The reader’s screen in the user interface will immediately display if a door is forced or held open, opened or closed as well as the current operating mode of the reader (Card-Only, Card + PIN, Lockout or Lockdown), for example.
2.0 Enhanced Hub Password Protection
All Borealis hubs are now automatically assigned a strong, unique operating system password to minimize the risk of a ransomware attack – or someone gaining unauthorized access to the hub.
3.0 Enhanced Notifications
Borealis will now post important notifications directly to the admin client so that system users will be kept informed about important information, such as: downtime due to system maintenance, new controller firmware files and upcoming features and enhancements.
4.0 Support for Authentic Mercury Controllers
Borealis now supports Authentic Mercury controller types and supporting modules (EP series and LP Series). This includes the following controllers and modules:
