PMS tab in Space General options

Introducción

You can configure Property Management System (PMS) options by using the PMS tab. This creates a link between Space and any PMS software used to issue guest keys in a hotel installation, for example, and allows them to work together. You must stop and restart the Space service before certain changes you make on the PMS tab take effect.

Note that the PMS functionality is license-dependent. See Registering and licensing Space for more information or contact your SALTO representative.

Tab items description

SettingDescripción
Protocols checkboxesAllows you to enable PMS protocols that can be used with Space. Three protocols are currently available: Industry Standard, Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) and FOLS. If you are unsure of which protocol to select, it is recommended that you consult your PMS administrator. You can select more than one protocol if required. When you select a protocol, you can use the drop-down arrows in the Channel column to select a communication port for the PMS connection. The default option is an RS232 serial port but you can select the TCP/IP option can be selected if required.
Modify buttonAllows you to configure the communication settings for the port you have selected for the protocol. Note that you must click the required protocol to highlight it before you click the Modify button.
Add buttonAllows you to add new TPC/IP connections for the Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) protocol. 14 new connections can be added and they should be configured and enabled as the default one. See Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) for more information.
Delete buttonAllows you to delete the new TPC/IP connections you add for the Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) protocol. The default Industry Standard, Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) and FOLS connections cannot be deleted.
Log communications checkboxControls whether the PMS software communication data is stored or not. If you select this option, the data is stored as a text file in the following location: C:\SALTO\ProAccess Space\logs\PMS_LOG It is recommended that you only enable this option if technical issues occur. This is because the log file expands fast.

Configuring communication settings

You must configure the communication settings for the PMS protocols that are used. The settings vary depending on the specific protocol and port option selected.

Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS)

You can choose to use either a TCP/IP port or an RS232 serial port for the Oracle Hospitality protocol.

TCP/IP ports

To configure the settings for a TCP/IP port, follow the steps below:

  1. Select System > General options > PMS.

  2. Select the checkbox for the Oracle Hospitality protocol in the Protocols panel.

  3. Click the Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) protocol to highlight it.

  4. Click Modify. The TCP/IP com. parameters dialog box is displayed.

'TCP/IP com parameters' dialog box'TCP/IP com parameters' dialog box

  1. Type the address of the server in the Server field. Typically, the IP address of the Oracle Hospitality server is entered in this field.

  2. Type the port number in the Port number field. This is the port number that is available for SALTO in the PMS server. The port number should be the same in Space as it is in the PMS software.

  3. Specify the frequency (in seconds) the LA (Link Alive) command will be sent to verify the connection is still active in the LA command frequency field.

  4. Select the KA command include $2 checkbox if required. When you select this checkbox, the UID code of guest keys is transferred to the PMS software when the key is encoded. The default option for the code format is 7-byte ROM Code (SALTO Format) but you can select a different option from the drop-down list if appropriate.

  5. Click OK. The configuration information is displayed in the Parameters and Advanced columns in the Protocols panel.

  6. Click Save.

RS232 ports

To modify the settings for an RS232 serial port, do the following:

  1. Select System > General options > PMS.

  2. Select the checkbox for the Oracle Hospitality protocol in the Protocols panel.

  3. Click the Oracle Hospitality PMS (FIAS) protocol to highlight it.

  4. Click Modify. The Serial com. parameters dialog box is displayed.

'Serial com parameters ' dialog box'Serial com parameters ' dialog box

  1. Select the appropriate COM port from the Com. port drop-down list.

  2. Select the appropriate number from the Data bits drop-down list. This value defines the number of data bits in each data character. The default option is 8 but you can select one of the other available values if required.

  3. Select the appropriate option from the Parity drop-down list if required. This allows you to specify the parity method used to detect data transmission errors. The default option is None.

  4. Select the appropriate option from the Baud rate drop-down list. This value defines the speed at which data is transmitted.

  5. Select the appropriate number from the Stop bits drop-down list. This value defines the number of stop bits that are included at the end of each data character.

  6. Select the KA command in the Include $2 field in parameter if required. When you select this checkbox, the UID code of guest keys is transferred to the PMS software when the key is encoded. The default option for the code format is 7-byte ROM Code (SALTO Format) but you can select a different option from the drop-down list if appropriate.

  7. Click OK. The configuration information is displayed in the Parameters and Advanced columns in the Protocols panel.

  8. Click Save.

When you use RS232 serial ports, you must use the same configuration settings for both Space and the PMS software. The number of data bits and stop bits, and the baud rate and parity type you select must be the same for both.

Industry Standard protocol

You can choose to use either a TCP/IP port or an RS232 serial port for the Industry Standard protocol.

TCP/IP ports

To configure the settings for a TCP/IP port, do the following:

  1. Select System > General options > PMS.

  2. Select the checkbox for the Industry Standard protocol in the Protocols panel.

  3. Click the Industry Standard protocol to highlight it.

  4. Click Modify. The TCP/IP com. parameters dialog box is displayed.

'TCP/IP com parameters' dialog box'TCP/IP com parameters' dialog box

  1. Type the port number in the Port number field. If the PMS and Space are not running on the same PC, the port number you enter must be '5010' or higher. In this case, you must also use the same port number for each of them.

  2. Select the Limit communications to one server checkbox if required. You can limit communications to one PC in the network if required. This means that the system will only process key requests from that PC. You must enter the IP address of the PC in the IP address field under the Limit communications to one server checkbox.

  3. Click OK. The configuration information is displayed in the Parameters column in the Protocols panel.

  4. Click Save.

RS232 ports

To modify the settings for an RS232 serial port, do the following:

  1. Select System > General options > PMS.

  2. Select the checkbox for the Industry Standard protocol in the Protocols panel.

  3. Click the Industry Standard protocol to highlight it.

  4. Click Modify. The Serial com. parameters dialog box is displayed.

'Serial com parameters ' dialog box'Serial com parameters ' dialog box

  1. Select the appropriate COM port from the Com. port drop-down list.

  2. Select the appropriate number from the Data bits drop-down list. This value defines the number of data bits in each data character. The default option is 8 but you can select one of the other available values if required.

  3. Select the appropriate option from the Parity drop-down list if required. This allows you to specify the parity method used to detect data transmission errors. The default option is None.
