Year 2000 Compliance – ADEMCO

  " ADEMCO low-end control communicators have 24-hour clocks but do not support real time date calendars. They use a calendar software module only to derive the days of the week. Controls that do not use calendar data in their operation are not affected by any calendar event, including the change to the
year 2000.

   ADEMCO high-end control communicators support real time date calendars and are designed to operate well beyond the year 2000. These controls, along with the PassPoint Access Control System and our family of central station receivers, use internal calendar modules to determine the date and day of the week, including accurate handling of leap years.
   Logic-implemented timed events built into control communicators are designed to perform through the year 2086. In units incorporating event logs, dates are recorded within the log. These event logs use order sequencing that does not rely on date.
   LCD keypads display dates through firmware from the main control panels and are capable of displaying dates greater than 1999.
   Our products are all software driven and have been designed in compliance with year 2000 standards."

Year 2000 Compliance – CADDX

November 9, 1998


To: All users of Caddx Products
From: Jim Stevens, VP Engineering


There have been many requests recently for information regarding our procedure for dealing with the year 2000. This memo is an attempt to answer the question of year 2000 compliance.

The control panels only use the last two digits of the year. When the year rolls over from 1999 to 2000 the panels will roll from 99 to 00. Since this information is only used in determining leap year, this will not have any effect on the operation of the control.

The download software takes the last two digits of the year from the clock of the PC when programming the date into the control panel. The only potential for confusion of the date comes when the Control Panel Event Log is stored on the computer. Since the control panel does not store a year, the download software inserts a year at the time the log is read from the control. This year is stored as two digits using the following rules:

1. It assigns the current year, unless doing so would cause it to have occurred in the future. In this case, it assigns the previous year to the event.

2. It assumes no events could have occurred prior to 1985 (since Caddx did not produce controls with event logs prior to this date). Thus if a year is less than 85, it assumes the century to be 21. Using these rules the software will not encounter any difficulties when the year rolls from 1999 to 2000. It is necessary, however, to read an event within 12 months of its occurrence.

THIS DOCUMENT CONSTITUTES A YEAR 2000 DISCLOSURE UNDER
THE "YEAR 2000 INFORMATION READINESS AND DISCLOSURE ACT".


Sincerely,

Jim Stevens
VP Engineering

Year 2000 Compliance – FBI

 

FBII’s control products are Year 2000 Compliant. This means that they will not produce errors processing date data in connection with the year change from December 31, 1999 to January 1, 2000, as long as all other products (e.g., other software and hardware) used with them properly exchange date data with FBII products. A Year 2000 Compliant product from FBII will recognize the Year 2000 as a leap year.

 

Disclaimer: This Statement of Compliance refers to the FBII product as delivered by FBII, and does not apply to user customizable features or third party add-on features or products. The FBII Statement of Compliance does not constitute a warranty or extend the terms of any existing warranty. The warranties provided for FBII’s products are set forth in the end user manual(s), installation instructions, or license agreements that accompany the products or the terms of the license agreement under which you make use of a FBII product. The information available from FBII concerning the Year 2000 is provided for the sole purpose of assisting our customers in their planning for the transition to the Year 2000.

The above is FBII’s Year 2000 (Y2K) Readiness Disclosure.

Sentrol's Year 2000 Readiness Disclosure

We have received many inquiries regarding how the Year 2000 will impact our products. Sentrol has tested the effects of the Year 2000 roll over and concludes that all hardware and software currently manufactured and marketed by Sentrol, ESL, Moose, Scantronics USA, Arrowhead, Aritech, and Acron are Year 2000 compliant. Our customers and end users should feel confident that, with minor exceptions, there are no date-dependant or date-monitoring components in our products that could adversely affect operation during or after the Year 2000 roll over.

To the best of our knowledge the Year 2000 roll over will only effect Sentrol customers who are using Transport PC3 upload/download software with the following Moose control panels: CS150, D1000, Z700, Z880, Z900, Z950 and Z1100E. RPM, PRISM II and SCAMPRO when run on a non Year 2000 compliant PC Platform; Scantronics DSS-624 if the Scheduler feature is used and the DCU-683 Keypad.

Please contact our Technical Services department with questions or concerns about Sentrol's Year 2000 compliance.
