Advanced tab in Space General options


You can enable advanced parameters in Space by using the Advanced tab. Advanced parameters are often required to be enabled in situations such as PMS integrations, where certain functionality may be needed to operate across systems.

To enable an advanced parameter, follow the steps below:

  1. Select System > General options > Advanced.

'Advanced' tab'Advanced' tab

The Advanced tab shows a list of the enabled parameters. The advanced parameters are described in the Advanced parameter options section.

  1. Click the Add parameter button. The Add parameter dialog box, with a list of parameters, is displayed.

'Add parameter' dialog box'Add parameter' dialog box

  1. Double-click on the required parameter under the Parameters column. The Value field '1' means the parameter is enabled. You can adjust the parameter value if required. See Advanced parameter options for more information.

  2. Click OK. The advanced parameter has been added to the enabled parameters list.

The Value field is Boolean data type, having two values, denoted true = 1 and false = 0 in this case. In some cases, a different value will be required, such as DISCARD_PERSONAL_EVENTS_OLDER_THAN = 7 or AUTO_LOGOFF_TIMEOUT = 120. See Advanced parameter options for more information about the values.

The SALTO RW Advanced Parameters document contains more information about advanced parameters. If you don't already have this document, contact your SALTO partner or tech support team to receive a copy of it.

To remove an advanced parameter from the list, select the parameter and click Delete parameter.

Advanced parameter options

Advanced parameterDescription
AUTO_LOGOFF_TIMEOUTDefines the automatic logout time. The system automatically logs you out of Space after 120 seconds of inactivity. However, you can change this logout time by enabling the AUTO_LOGOFF_TIMEOUT parameter and defining a value (in seconds) as appropriate.
CHECK_USER_CARDIDActivates additional system checks that are performed when the encoder is used to encode new keys for users. The system verifies that the user has a valid card serial number (CSN) and that it corresponds to the CSN on the key being encoded. Otherwise, the encoder operation is canceled.
CUSVN_DATE_EXTAllows you to specify whether keys that are presented to CUs are revalidated as normal even if the CU is offline. When you enable this parameter, an Extended expiration (offline) checkbox is displayed on the information screen for online IP (CU5000) and online IP (CU4200) doors in Space. See Connection types for more information about connection types. A CUSVN automatic date extension field is also displayed on the Devices tab in General options. This allows you to adjust the time parameters for the option.
DISCARD_PERSONAL_EVENTS_OLDER_THANAllows you to set system restrictions on the collection of audit trail data. This can be done for the purposes of privacy. You must define this value in days. There is no limit on the number of days you can enter. For example, "DISCARD_PERSONAL_EVENTS_OLDER_THAN=7" means that data older than seven days is not collected from the locks or displayed in the audit trail. If you set the value to 0, the parameter is not enabled.
EXIT_LEAVES_OPENActivates the Exit leaves open mode for rooms and suites, and adds the Exit leaves open option to the opening mode options on the Door information screen in Space. See Opening modes and timed periods for more information about opening modes.
FAL_MULTIPLEEnables additional locker zone options that allow you to specify whether users can access lockers within two different free assignment zones using the same key. When you enable this parameter, Group#1 and Group#2 options are displayed on the Zone information screen in Space. You can select these options when the zone has been defined as a free assignment zone. See Configuring zones for more information.
FREE_ASSIGNMENT_LOCKEREnables the free assignment locker option, which allows users to choose any locker within a zone (rather than a pre-assigned locker). When you enable this parameter, an Is free assignment locker checkbox is displayed on the Locker information screen in Space. See Free assignment zones and for more information.
INHIBIT_USER_NAME_CHANGEActivates system restrictions for user names. When this parameter is enabled, you cannot amend a user's name in the Title, First name, and Last name fields on the User information screen in Space if you have assigned them a key at any point. If you need to change a user name, for example, you must delete the existing user and create a new user profile for them. This ensures that the audit trail data for users is accurate. Note that when the parameter is enabled, you can amend a user's name if they have never been assigned a key.
LIMITED_USER_ACCESSAllows you to specify the number of individual users that can be granted access to a particular door. Note that this restriction does not apply to users in a user access level associated with the door, or users that have access to a zone with which the door is associated. When you enable this parameter, a Limit user access field is displayed on the Door information screen in Space. See Door options for more information.
MORE_THAN_64K_USERSAllows you to specify whether user, visitor, and guest keys are sent to the denylist when canceled. When this parameter is enabled, a New key can be canceled through denylist checkbox is displayed on the User information screen in Space. In addition, a Maximum expiration period for non cancellable keys field is displayed on the User tab in General options. See Cancelling keys for more information. A Visitors keys are cancellable through denylist checkbox is also displayed on the Visitors tab in General options. See Visitor tab for more information.
PROX_ANTICLONINGControls the display of proximity card data. When you enable this parameter, data written in proximity cards is mixed with key ROM codes.
SHOW_EXT_IDControls the display of the Ext ID field. When you enable this parameter, the Ext ID field is added to several screens in Space, such as the User and Door information screens. The Ext ID field is populated when CSV file synchronization and database table synchronization is performed. See Automatic CSV file synchronization and Automatic database table synchronization for more information.
SHOW_KEY_DETECT_MODEAllows you to define whether key detection is done in pulsed mode (instead of continuous) for locks with IButton readers. When you enable this parameter, an IButton key detection: pulsed mode checkbox is displayed on the Door, Room, and Locker information screens. See Door options for more information. This option is only compatible with PPDs that have firmware version 1.02 or higher.
SHOW_ROM_CODEControls the display of ROM codes. When you enable this parameter, the ROM codes of user keys are displayed when you read keys or export audit trail data.
SVN_TIMEOUTDefines the length of time (in milliseconds) before a CU times out when a key is placed, for example, on a wall reader for updating. If the CU times out before a response is received from Space, the key update is not performed. The default option is 2,000 milliseconds but this value can be changed. This is useful if network communication is slow due to narrow bandwidth, for example.

If an advanced parameter you require is not displayed in the Add parameter dialog box, consult with your SALTO technical support contact. The parameters shown are linked with your SALTO product licensing. Your licensing options may need to be updated if you do not have access to all the required functionalities. See Registering and licensing Space for more information.
