How To Setup ASR2100Z-B Bluetooth Reader on DHI-ASC3202B


This article will cover how to setup a ASR2100Z-B Bluetooth Reader on a DHI-ASC3202B


NOTE: To use the Bluetooth functionality of the ASR2100Z-B Bluetooth Reader it must be connected to the DHI-ASC3202B Access Controller, connected via RS485 and configured via the web interface of the Access Controller. When using the Bluetooth functionality of the reader, the access controller cannot be managed by SmartPSS Lite or DSS.
The ASR2100Z-B can be used as just a card reader (NO Bluetooth functionality) when wired via RS485 or Weigand on any Dahua Access Controller, managed by SmartPSS Lite, DSS, or stand alone.
