Adding a New Lock onto the Floor Plan

This section describes how to add a single lock directly onto a floor plan.

Tip:

To add several locks at a time, see Adding a New Lock.

Note:

You do not necessarily need the actual physical locks to add locks in iLOQ Locking System. You can define the locks and attach them to the physical locks at a later phase.

Note:

Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

Proceed as follows.

  1. Select Basic data > Browse floor plans.
  2. Hover your mouse over the desired door and right-click to select Lock > Add lock (Ctrl+N).
    The Add lock wizard is opened.
  3. Select Add lock.
  4. Define the lock settings as follows:
    • Placement — Placement refers to the location of the lock on the floor plan.
    • Placement — Placement refers to the location of the lock on the floor plan. If you are adding several locks at a time, set the first placement in a way that it ends with a number, such as A1. In this way, the system adds consecutive placement numbers as follows:
      • A1
      • A2
      • A3
      • ...
    • Approach direction — Approach direction refers to the direction where the lock will be opened from, if the door is equipped with double side lock.
    • Locking target — Locking target provides a more detailed description or name of the room or premises, where the lock will lead to.

    • Lock cylinder — Lock cylinder refers to the lock cylinder type. Select the type in the drop-down list, or enter the type manually.
    • Allow API access rights — Check Allow API access rights to allow Application Programming Interface (API) access rights for the lock.

    • Online authentication required — Check the Online authentication required, if you want to create a high-security lock that requires server authentication each time the lock is opened.

      Note:

      Online authentication lengthens the lock opening time.

      If you have allowed API access rights, and checked the Online authentication required, select also one or both of the options below:

      • For API access rights — If you check this check box, the lock requires online authentication from a key that has an API access right. If you do not check this check box, the lock can opened without online authentication, by a key that has an API access right.

      • For standard access rights — If you check this check box, the lock requires online authentication from a key that has a standard access right. If you do not check this check box, the lock can opened without online authentication, by a key that has a standard access right.

  5. Select Next.
  6. Enter additional information as necessary.

    The fields are:

    • Door type — Door type refers to the type of door where the lock will be mounted on.
    • Escutcheon — Escutcheon refers to the shield plate that surrounds the keyhole on the door.
    • Lock model — Lock model refers to the model of the lock case.

    • Not time limited — If you select this option, the lock ignores all time profiles on keys. In other words, the keys function 24/7 even if they do have a time profile.

    • Apply all time profiles on a key — If you select this option, the lock applies all time profiles on keys.

    • Apply selected time profiles — If you select this option, the lock only applies the selected time profiles on keys. If the selected time profiles do not match with the key time profiles, the key functions all the time.
