Order a configuration

You can order custom configurations from us. There are 3 options to choose from depending on your requirements:

The service fee is €300 per order.

Ready-to-deploy configuration

This is the right option if you want a complete configuration where you don't need to make any changes yourself.

What you'll get

You'll receive the complete and tested configuration as a deployable file. This encrypted, non-editable format protects your sensitive project details and is safe to transmit via e-mail.

Upon request, we also send you ConfigCards containing the configuration.

Your workflow:
Deploy the configuration as part of the reader installation process.

If you order large reader quantities, we can also deploy the configuration for you during production.

What we need from you

  • Project card specification (or, as a fallback, a sample project card)
  • Relevant project keys
  • Host protocol (e.g. Wiegand, RS-232)
  • Feedback to emit to the card holder (e.g. LED and beeper behavior)

Configuration Template

This is the right option if you want a complete configuration, but

  • prefer not to share the project keys or other sensitive details, and/or
  • want to use the configuration for various projects where only a few parameters change.

What you'll get

We prepare the configuration according to your requirements and provide it to you in an editable format. You can use it as a template for 1 or multiple projects and enter keys or other details yourself.

Your workflow:

  1. Derive a new project configuration from the template.
  2. Edit the configuration as needed, i.e. add encryption keys or any other project-specific information.

  3. Test the configuration.
    You can test the interaction with project cards (referred to as project settings) using BALTECH ID-engine Explorer. However, we recommend you also test the whole configuration in a test environment.

    Please note that we cannot fully test the configuration for you.

  4. Prepare the configuration for deployment.

  5. Finalize the configuration to release it as a defined version. This will also generate a deployable file.

  6. In addition, you can create a ConfigCard. This is an alternative deployment method for firmly installed readers that are difficult to connect to a computer.

  7. Deploy the configuration as part of the reader installation process.

What we need from you

  • Project card specification
  • Host protocol (e.g. Wiegand, RS-232)
  • Feedback to emit to the card holder (e.g. LED and beeper behavior)

Custom form

This is the right option if you want to create the configuration yourself, but the standard forms in BALTECH ConfigEditor don't meet your requirements.

What you'll get

You'll receive a tailor-made form that you can import into your own configuration.

Your workflow:

  1. Create your own configuration file.
  2. Click Extend Configuration > Import from File.
  3. Select the file you've received from us to add the form to your configuration file.

Now you can continue with the standard configuration workflow described here.

What we need from you

Describe us the problem you want to solve. Together, we'll then define which settings your custom form needs to include.

Naming scheme

The configuration we create will follow the naming scheme below. It's used as a file name, but you'll also see it e.g. in BALTECH ID-engine Explorer or Uploader when connecting to a reader that uses this configuration.

Naming scheme for configurations created by BALTECH

This scheme makes it easy to see if a configuration

  • contains device settings
  • contains project settings
  • contains the same project or device settings as another configuration
