The Invixium biometric integration allows for enrolling biometric templates into an Invixium reader via Access It! Universal.NET. When using this integration, the biometric template, as well as any biometric comparisons are performed by the reader. Prior to configuring the integration, the following are required:

  • Access It! Universal.NET min s/w v5.6
  • Invixium IXM WEB min s/w v1.5.0.0
  • Invixium reader min f/w v1.5.0.0
    All Invixium readers except the MERGE CR are supported

Prior to configuring the IXM biometric integration, the IXM WEB software must be fully installed, licensed, and all biometric devices added.

In Order to Activate the IXM WEB software you must fill out and submit the IXM WEB form to receive an Activation ID.

The URL for the Invixium activation form:

Access It! Universal.NET Licensing
The following licensing option must be enabled within the Access It! Universal.NET dongle and is a system wide license.

  • Biometric Support - Yes


The Invixium readers should be wired to a Mercury-Security reader port using the standard Wiegand wiring. It is recommended the reader be powered over PoE or else a dedicated power supply (minimum 1A) must be used.

Invixium Reader SIO Reader Port
WDATA_OUT0 (green) D0
WDATA_OUT1 (white) D1
ACP_LED1 (brown) LED
WGND (black w/green) GND

The LED wire is required for panel feedback functionality.

Configuring IXM WEB Panel Feedback
The Invixium reader reports Access Granted when a biometric template is successfully verified. If the credential is inactive within Access It! Universal.NET it can lead to user confusion when a reader reports "Access Granted" but the software displays "Access Denied". To prevent this, the Invixium reader can be configured to report "Access Granted" based on the feedback of the LED wire attached to the reader port of the Mercury-Security panel.
This functionality requires the LED wire be connected between Invixium reader and Mercury panel.

  1. Log into IXM WEB
  2. Select Config
  3. Select Panel Feedback
  4. Enable the Panel Feedback by clicking the On/Off button located in the upper right-hand corner
