Wireless Locksets, Video and CardHolder APIs

Securing the World One Door at a Time

Below are links to documents on DSX L85 and the integrated wired and wireless locksets. Popular in universities and hospitals these integrated locksets are like virtual DSX Controllers. Also on this page is the Open Ended Universal Translator - Soft I/O that allows for input and output exchange between DSX and other Systems. The APIs for Video Integration and Card Holder Management are discussed here also.


DSX-L85 Integrated Locksets. The L85 software provides a method to integrate wired and wireless locksets into a DSX Access Control System. The L85 software leverages it’s Virtual Hardware capabilities to accommodate non controller based locks and readers. Locksets purchased from DSX do not require the purchase of a lockset license. The latest DSX-L85 Software supports AD-300, AD-400, and NDE Locksets.

Integrated Locksets

DSX-L85 Locksets are highly adaptive to their environment and especially informative with the ability to report up to 14 states of its condition. There are 6 basic modes of operation which are detailed in the descriptions below. With the combined power of the Integrated Locksets and DSX, there are many custom applications that can be deployed.

DSX Soft I/O

DSX-Soft I/O is an open ended universal translator. It will map Inputs and Outputs of other systems to Virtual Inputs and Outputs in the DSX System. This allows the full DSX feature set, including items such as Linking, Alarm reporting, Maps, Automatic and Manual Control and Full Visibility to be used with the virtual inputs and outputs.

Video Integration

DVR/NVRs can be integrated with WinDSX to allow stored and live video from a DVR/NVR to be accessed within the DSX software. Click here for an updated list of DVR/NVR Manufacturers that are currently supported. There is an SDK available for those that want to integrate with a system not on the list. Inquire with Technical Support about obtaining the SDK.

DataBase Management API

The DSX DataBase Management API is a document that outlines the use of the DSX Markup Language which allows for the Card Holders to be added, deleted and maintained from another system without compromising the integrity of the database. Call DSX Technical Support for more information on or help with the API. API is on Software distribution Flash Drive.

Event Cast

EventCast is a program that polls the Comm Server PC for events and routes them to a serial port or an IP address. This is a great integration tool where the system history collected by the DSX Software can be routed to another system for storage, review, and manipulation. Call DSX Technical Support for more information.

PC Master

PC Master is a program that allows IP communications to each DSX controller or cluster of controllers as determined by the environment and application. Each sub controller or cluster of sub controllers can have a DSX-LAN serial server for network connectivity. PC Master is a standard offering that comes on all WinDSX and WinDSX SQL software distribution media.
