Upgrade from RACS 4 to RACS 5

Considering significant amount of installed RACS 4 systems, Roger Company enabled upgrade of existing RACS 4 systems to RACS 5 version. The majority of listed below RACS 4 devices and existing cabling can be preserved and still used.
RACS 4 devices usually require firmware upgrade and limited configuration. The firmware is offered free of charge. User list can be exported from RACS 4 software and imported into RACS 5. Remaining system settings due to more advanced logic must be configured individually.
The migration is charged only if VISO EX management software is to be applied. In vast majority of cases free of charge VISO ST software is sufficient. In every scenario the migration requires installation of new MC16 series access controllers.
