How to Setup a Hikvision Device for Import of Clockings to Jarrison Time

For successful communication between Hikvision devices and Jarrison Time to occur, devices must be configured correctly. A device password will be required for Jarrison Time. All the below device configuration options should be checked, as defaults may prevent successful communication. It is also recommended to have the latest firmware on devices.

Mainmenu

Above is the Main Menu, this menu is referred to often as a starting point in this document.

To access the Main Menu press and hold on the screen until the “swipe” icon appears.

swipeicon

Swipe to the side (left or right) and enter the device password.

Enterpw 1

Setting Password

A password is usually set on device activation, if no password was set a factory reset will be required.

From the Main Menu click on the “Maint.” icon.

Then select “Restore to Factory Settings” on the System Maintenance screen.

restorefactory

Note that device settings will be lost.

After restarting, the device should show the below screen:

Activatedevice

Create a new password (length of 8 to 16 characters) then click on ‘Activate’.

Select the preferred language and then ‘Next’.

Appmode

Select Mode according to where the device will be used, then ‘Next’.

An Administrator account must be created. The Administrator will be allowed access to the Main Menu using either ‘Face’ or ‘Card’.

Enter employee number, name and surname and click on ‘Next’.

AddAdmin

An Administrator account must be created. The Administrator will be allowed access to the Main Menu using either ‘Face’ or ‘Card’.

Enter employee number, name and surname and click on ‘Next’.

Select a template for the Admin user which will be used to access the Main Menu.

Take a clear photo of your face and click on ‘OK’.

Place or hover the tag/card on the device.

Setting IP

Navigate to “Comm.” and from the resulting menu select “Wired Network”.

Comm

Set IP AddressSubnet Mask, and Gateway according to the network.

SetIP

Setting Attendance Mode

From the Main Menu navigate to “T&A” and click on “Attendance Mode”.

Attmode1

Select “Manual”.

Here you can also enable In/Out clocking options as needed. Check In Check Out should be enabled if Jarrison should get the direction from the device. Note that Jarrison will not import the break type (Check/Break/Overtime), only the clocking direction.

Attmode2

Setting Authentication

From the Main Menu navigate to “ACS”.

ACS

Then go to “Terminal Auth. Mode”.

TermAuth

Click on “Method” and select “Card/Face/PWD” in order to use any of these authentication methods.

Setting Temperature Measurement

This is only for devices that are compatible with temperature measurements. By default this option is enabled.

From the Main Menu navigate to “Temperature”.

TempMeasure

Disable the “Temperature Measurement Only” option (with this enabled no clockings will be imported into Jarrison Time).

Setting Device Time Zone

Click on the ‘Basic’ icon on the Main Menu and select “Time Settings”.

DeviceTZ

Then select “Time Zone”.

DeviceTZ2

Select and apply option “Athens, Jerusalem, Istanbul (GMT +02:00)

Glossary of Terms

Access Control

Access control refers to the restriction of people’s ability to clock on biometric devices based on location and/or time. Advanced access control includes anti-passback and zone sequencing.

Access Groups

Access Groups in Jarrison Time are combinations of Devices and Time Zones, used to determine on which devices and at which times members of the Access Groups may clock. Access Groups also facilitate restrictions based on too much or too little clocking in specified time-frames.

Access Groups can by synchronized or imported by Third-Party Import, or by users.

Access Zone

In Jarrison Time an Access Zone is how devices are grouped together to form logical zones for the purposes of access control. The option is available with the JT Live module.

Adjustments (Manual Adjustments)

Adjustments are the method of covering absence of time by employees in Jarrison Time. Examples of adjustments would be Annual leave and Sick leave. Adjustments are typically applied by a user via Daily Details as needed, or can be imported from file. It’s very important that Adjustments are correctly configured and applied as paid or unpaid. (Unpaid will result in Short Time.)

Anti Passback

Anti Passback is a form of access control where people are restricted from clocking on the device most recently clocked on, until they have clocked at another device.

Approval Bypass

Approval Bypass is a feature of Jarrison Time Approvals that allows for the first approval tier to be approved without any exceptions being cleared.

Approvals

Approvals are a system-wide setting that forces users to correct Exceptions and then lock periods from further editing, ready for submission to payroll.

Jarrison Time allows for up to three tiers of Approvals: Daily Summary (timesheet), Pay totals, Department totals. Starting at timesheet level, each tier needs to be approved before the next one can process.

Area

An Area in Jarrison Time refers to a GPS location with a set radius, which designates a permitted T&A clocking area for JT Clock users.

Area Schedule

The Area Schedule is used in conjunction with JT Clock to determine where JT Clock users should clock on a given day.

Authentication

Authentication in the context of access control or T&A is the means by which a person identifies themselves to biometric devices for clocking purposes.

Authorizations

In Jarrison Time it is possible to allow employees to earn unapproved overtime when working additional hours. The unapproved time must then be authorized (to change to payable OT) or declined by a user. Authorization categories are setup so the system knows where to send approved or declined time.

Biometric Device (Reader)

A biometric device is a type of device (also known as a reader), usually wall-mounted but can be handheld, used to authenticate a person’s identity by recognizing some part of their body. Jarrison Time is directly compatible with a wide range of biometric devices covering the following means of authentication: Fingerprint, Face, Palm. Tags and PINs can also be accepted if the device supports it.

Bouncing (Shift Sensing)

Bouncing is a system-based method of assigning Day Programs to employees based on their clocking times. The selection of Day Programs the system can apply and when to apply them needs to be configured.

Breaks

Breaks in Jarrison Time are used to allow time off duty during the day. Breaks must be correctly configured and applied as paid or unpaid. (Unpaid breaks affect Target Time.)
