Continental Access – CA4K Mobile App Technical Advisory

Dear Value Customer – The CA4K Service Pack 1 that was recently released, contains an update for the CA4K Mobile Web APP. This update is for the application that is installed on the computer running IIS. This is not an update for the phone app downloaded from the Google or Apple stores, and installed on the phone.

If you do not have Service Pack 1 installed over V1.1.16, you must install Service Pack 1 before updating the CA4K Mobile Web App. Please contact Continental Technical Support for the ftp download information.

If you are installing the CA4K Mobile Web APP for the first time, you MUST first install IIS and then install the CA4K Mobile Web APP included with Service Pack 1.

If you have already installed the CA4K Mobile Web APP from CA4K V1.1.16, you must uninstall it from Programs and Features, and reinstall it from Service Pack 1.

The Service Pack 1 Installation Document is available at the following link:

Continental Access – COVID-19 TECH TIP for disabling badges and disabling Free Access on doors

To All Our Valued Partners,

During this COVID-19 crisis, many companies are forced to close the business and furlough workers. During this time, you may wish to disable employees’ badges and prevent doors from going into Free Access.

In the Continental software, there are multiple methods of doing this. On a very small system, the quickest method might be to manually set the Badgeholders Access groups to “Not Used”. In addition, to prevent doors from going into Free Access, you can set the Free Access schedules under Readers to “Not Used”.  On larger systems, a few other methods are outlined below.

LOCKDOWN AREAS – In the Continental software, lockdown areas can be configured to lock down a group of doors. The group of doors can contain all exterior doors in one or multiple buildings.

THREAT LEVELS – In the Continental software, you can configure Threat levels. When the Threat Level is activated, badges will be not be authorized to enter the building. In addition, any doors that were in Free Access will be locked down.

SCHEDULED CHANGES – Scheduled changes can be programmed to swap in different schedules on devices for a specific Date and time range. For instance, if you have a Free Access Schedule used on a door, you can create a schedule change to swap in “Not Used” for the Free Access schedule for the time frame needed.

Note: For assistance configuring the features above, please refer to the Continental Document library and the Continental Video Library. There is a video on configuring Lockdown areas and Threat Levels in the CA4K software.  Please refer to the links below.
