How to setup JS Web Server

This article looks at how to licence and configure Jarrison Time to use JS Web Server, and how to configure devices as Web Server devices.


1) In Jarrison Time, go to Setup > Registration.

2) Select JS Web Server then select the number and type (SIM-based or networked) of JS Web Devices that will be used.  


3) Click Save and send the Registration file through to your supplier for activation.

4) Once the activation code has been received and applied, go to Setup > System Configuration. Select the Hardware Tab then click the Test JS Web Connection button.


5) To add a device to Jarrison Time, go to Access > Devices then Enable or Add a device.

6) Enter the name of the device, under Device Brand select JS Web, and then select ZK Algorithm 10 as the Web Type.


7) Add the device serial number. Then Save.

To find the device serial number on the device, go to the Main menu.


Then select System Info, then choose Device Info.


8) Click on the green bolt button then select Send device to webserver.


8) Once the device has been sent to the webserver, reboot the device.

After this from the Devices window you can then click on the green bolt and select Get Device Type. This will update the Model, Biometric, and Algorithm fields.

You can then add the device to an Access Group and distribute assigned employees to the new device.

The device should soon (within 10 minutes) appear online in the Device Action Monitor (under Access on the menu bar).


Note that some menus may appear differently to those described below, depending on model and firmware version of device.

1) The ADMS / Cloud Server settings need to be checked from the Main Menu (hamburger icon).

2) From Main Menu tap COMM. to set the Ethernet, Cloud Server setting.

3) Tap Cloud Server Setting on the Comm. Settings interface to connect with the ADMS server.

Enter the details as follows
Enable Domain Name needs to be switched to Off.
Enable Proxy Server needs to be switched Off.
HTTPS needs to be switched Off
Server Address:
Port: 58957

IP Settings for LAN

Tap Ethernet on the Comm. Settings menu to configure the settings.


This can be set to DHCP or Static IP.

Enter the details as received from IT / Network Administrator.

Please make sure a Gateway has been entered.

Once the setup has been done, reboot the device. When the Webserver is connected successfully and the Device has been added in Jarrison Time, the main interface will display an icon like this:

Glossary of Terms

.Net Framework

(known as “dot net”) .Net is a software development framework for building and running applications on Windows.

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 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.


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


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.
