Have java dependencies been eliminated in the browser interface?

The applet is still required for viewing video and capturing photos for integrated photo ID. Eliminating java dependencies in the browser is planned for a future release.

How do I upgrade an AX version Niagara Enterprise Security project to the current version?

This release does not include station migrators and support for the legacy security JACE 601/602/616 models. We plan to release station migrators and support the legacy security JACE on the N4 Supervisor in the near future. The legacy JACE will not be migrated to Niagara 4, but will be supported on the Niagara 4 Enterprise Security Supervisor. In the meantime, we will continue to create new AX version builds to keep your system up to date with the latest supported version of Niagara AX.

What JACE platform is supported for Niagara Enterprise Security?

The same currently supported JACE 8000 used for building automation and integration is also supported for Niagara Enterprise Security. The Niagara Enterprise Security license may be added to any JACE 8000 license and provides capacity for up to 32 card readers and 16 security modules. The same modules used for previous versions of the security product are also used for the current product.
