Communication  Module

Parameters tab

The Harmony communication module intermediates between the User interface, the terminals and the readers installed on various locations in the organization. This connection provides up to date information on attendance and additional activities of interest (such as production) which enables keeping track and following-up on the activities. Harmony relies on SYServer, to communicate with the terminals and readers gathering the information. Harmony client does this by sending commands to the SYServer. SYServer, which is meanwhile in listening mode, receives the commands and uses it’s DLL program to exchange information with the terminals (using a COM Object method). The Harmony communication module is installed under the MTS Object Manager. This chapter is structured around information on the system rather than the order that the keys appear in the Harmony GUI.
