The Dealer Access Module provides Central Station Monitoring Module Users the ability to enable their Alarm Dealers (the companies for whom they provide sub-contracted central station monitoring services) to access each Dealer's individual data set via the Web, as needed.

Note: This Dealer Access Module application requires that each database which will be accessed must have an ODBC Connection defined.

Micro Key Dealer Access Module - About box

 

To use the Dealer Access Module, once you're registered, you must define your Alarm Dealers and their Dealer Users - those Technicians who are permitted remote access via the Web using this Alarm Dealer Access Module.

Once an Alarm Dealer is established, you may, as required:

Enter Accounts one by one as they come on line.

Use the Mass Accounts Creation feature to establish one or many CSIDs for that Dealer.

Use Any of these options.

Later, as the Dealer puts those Mass Accounts on line, using the Dealer Module Client for this Dealer Access Module, their Dealer Users will be able to Edit each Mass Account that was created to include the actual Subscriber Information.

 

Using the MKMSDLRS (Server) and MKMSDLRC (Client) applications:

1.MKMSDLRS is the "Server" application - see Dealer Access Module Server - which is directly connected to the MKMS system database and processes all of the requests from the Dealer Module Client module.

2.MKMSDLRC is the "Client" application that makes those requests for additions, modifications and/or deletions to a Subscriber record, and that Subscriber's Monitoring information, and reports relating to the data in the MKMS and MKMSCS applications.

 

As recommended in Getting Started, consider creating a folder on your Windows® Desktop with Shortcuts to all the Micro Key Millennium Series programs that each workstation will be needing.

To start the MKMSDLRS Server application, Click that Icon.
