It is suggested that you use the Mercury Firmware add on to update the firmware available for download.
This will back up the current bin files by adding the date to the file name then adding firmware bin files with the most recent files.
3) In the System Status Tree in Alarm Monitoring, right-click on the master reader connected to the reader interface module, then select Download Reader Firmware to apply the new firmware to the reader interface module.

Additional InformationThe firmware update may take several minutes to complete. It is recommended to perform the update during a period of little or no system usage.
Lenel recommends updating no more than a few reader interface modules at a time to minimize Communication Server processing and maintain system stability.
