Top 7 - Q&A List 


Session 1: Overview of BioStar 2’s Latest Release

Q.1) Will there be any consequence if customer upgrade Java version to latest and map in Environment Variables?

Yes, there should be updated path in System Environment variables.  I would like to provide the guide with the several screenshot. please refer to https://support.supremainc.com/en/support/solutions/articles/24000042687--biostar-2-biostar-2-web-page-is-not-open-with-error-msg-in-nginx-service-log.


Q.2) Can we upgrade our current D2 rev.1? We need them to use mobile credential actually

I am sorry, but it is not possible. You can not use Suprema Mobile Access to D2 Rev 1. To support Suprema Mobile Access, we implemented XPass D2 (Rev 2.) 


Q.3) Do you need your phone to connected internet all the time while using to access door?

Regular card is one-time download. It means that your smartphone doesn’t need to connect Internet all time except downloading Airfob pass and activation that. On the other hand, Dynamic Card usage is required to connect Internet all time.


Session 2: How To Use Suprema Mobile Access

Q.4) Since there is Suprema Mobile Access, what will happen to the existing customers who are using BioStar 2 Mobile Card?

Even though we will discontinue the old solution, but the existing customer with the previous BioStar2 Mobile Card can keep using the solution, unless they delete or update the system or the application. 


Q.5) Is there a plan to include Access on Card or Secure Credential card in Mobile Access in the future?

No, we do not have plans to support afore-mentioned formats in the future. Instead, we are considering a different concept, Intelligent Mobile.


Q.6) Are the mobile credential re-usable and transferable?

It depends on the card type. Regular : It's not re-usable because of the credit is # of card. Dynamic: It's re-usable, because of the credit is # of device and the dates.


Q.7) Does Airfob portal provide the free credit?

If you create new site in the renewed portal, you will get 50 credits.
