Note: This updated version will work on OS X 10.7 (Lion) or higher. Unfortunately, it may not work on 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

To begin the update process on a MAC machine:

  2. Once you have found the SentriCard® Utility, drag any previously installed versions of the SentriCard® Utility to the Trash bin and restart your computer. 

    **Please drag ONLY the following kinds of files to the Trash: "Applications", "JNLP Files" and "Disk Images".*
  3. After restarting, empty your Trash bin. Now, make sure your SentriCard® reader is connected to your computer and use the following instructions to download and install the updated version:

    To start the SentriCard® Utility,
  4. Open your web browser and go to http://www.sentrilock.com/files/. and bookmark this page. **It is recommended that you bookmark this page as this is the new method of starting the SentriCard® Utility.
  5. Click on the "Card Utility 3.1 Start" button. If prompted, updating Java 7 is optional. Ensure your card reader is plugged in and that your SentriCard® is inserted into the card reader to renew your SentriCard®.
