Hirsch Identive is proud to offer complimentary technical support to factory-trained, authorized dealers for Hirsch Identive manufactured products listed in the tables below. Products not listed below are no longer supported, however assistance is provided to upgrade from a non-supported to a supported product. End-of-support (EOS) dates, when applicable, are specified. For customers that choose to use an unsupported product, for-fee assistance may be available; please contact Hirsch Identive for more information.
Hirsch Identive advises customers to keep their hardware, firmware and software up-to-date. Newer product versions generally offer new enhancements in features, performance and ease-of-use. New versions also contain fixes and updates that ensure maximum facility security.
Staying current is important not only for Hirsch Identive manufactured hardware and software but also for the computer and related system components. Running your facility's security system on an older computer or on an operating system Microsoft no longer supports, can increase your probability of experiencing downtime. For instance, if a computer hardware part fails or the operating system becomes corrupted, you may find it impossible to get the system up and running quickly. Rather than risk an emergency situation, please commit to regularly scheduled, proactive upgrades.
Customers with custom or non-typical installations (redundant servers, API or interoperability implementations, etc.) should check with Hirsch Identive Professional Services for possible specialized upgrade procedures before installing new versions.
Software Support Policy
Hirsch Identive currently supports the Hirsch Identive-published software listed in the table below. Hirsch Identive will provide support for the most current "dot" release (N) and the previous dot release (N-1). Hirsch will also support the next previous dot release (N-2) for a minimum of six months after N's release date. (A "dot" release occurs when the numeral to the right of the version number's period is incremented (e.g., 3.1 was the dot release that followed 3.0).)
The end-of-support date will be posted on the Hirsch Identive website a minimum of six months prior to the EOS date. At Hirsch Identive's sole discretion, Hirsch Identive may choose to provide support beyond this period on case-by-case basis. If provided, any such support will be limited to reasonable efforts and will not include software patches or enhancements of old software versions. Most customers with non-supported software will be required to bring their software up to a supported version in order to receive technical support.
