Current build, prerequisites and system specification


Current BreeCS Build: 3.0.5926



In order to start using BreeCS you will need a Paxton Net2 v5.03 PRO installation comprising of at least one ACU and two readers (v5.03 is included within the BreeCS installer but you must purchase a pro license from your local wholesaler). The connected readers can be any reader that paxton supports; Paxton, HID, iEvo Fingerprint, Handkey and so on.

If you wish to use biometrics and would like a fully integrated environment then please use iEvo for fingerprints and HandKey 2 for hand geometry scanning as BreeCS has inbuilt support for administering fingerprints/hands under these platforms.

In order to scan CSCS cards to check validity and retain data contained on the card you require a compatible HID Omnikey (or equivalent) reader. You also require the readers driver and the CSCS GoSmart Software for the physical card scanning (contained within the BreeCS installer). Please click here for a list of compatible readers.
