Developer Support – Sample Code
Highpower provides a sample application written in Visual Basic .NET to illustrate how to implement your own server application. This sample application implements a real time, asynchronous server that supports the basic firmware functions of the Pico unit. Developers are free to use this code or reference this code for use in any application implemented for the Pico.

Product Manual with Command Set
Our product manual includes detailed information on the command set used to control the Pico unit, as well as specifics on the hardware connections. Highpower has worked to make the command set simple and understandable. By connecting to the Pico’s IP address and command port, you can send commands to the unit with your software that control the unit directly.
Developers typically set up an asynchronous listener application to receive the card swipes from the Pico unit, using either TCP/IP or UDP protocols. Responses to the unit are sent back on the same channel to the command port for door unlocking, door position switch monitoring and to retrieve other information from the unit.

Interfacing with HMS Server
In order to reduce development time, Highpower Security Products can provide detailed information on how to interface your application with programming interfaces built into our HMS Server software. Instead of implementing communications to the device directly in your application, you may instead choose to use our proven software server application to talk to the Pico unit through programming interfaces. Highpower can provide custom integration commands in HMS Server tailored to your application needs. Contact the factory directly for help with HMS integration.
