Adding a Copy of an Existing Key

This section describes how to add a copy of an existing Key Fob or Phone Key to iLOQ Locking System.

Note:

You do not necessarily need the actual physical keys when you add keys to iLOQ Manager. You can define the keys and attach them to the physical keys at a later phase.

Note:

Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

Proceed as follows.

  1. Select Basic data > Browse keys.

  2. Select Add key.
    The Add key wizard is opened.
  3. Select Add copy of existing key.
  4. Select the key to be copied.
  5. Select Next.
  6. Name the key in The name / description of the key field.
    Tip:

    Use, for example, "Master key" or "Employee".

  7. Define the Start date for the key.

    This value defines the start date and time for key validity, that is, the key starts to operate on this time.

  8. Define the End date for the key.

    This value defines the end date and time for key validity, that is, the key stops to operate on this time.

  9. If necessary, enter the planned return date in the Planned return date field.
    Note:

    This field is informative only, for the administrator. The value does not affect the key validity.

  10. Optional: Select the key type:
    • Key Fob

    • Phone Key

    • S5

  11. Select the Offline expiration time.

    If a system default offline expiration time is defined, it is suggested for the key. You can define a key-specific offline expiration time by editing the suggested time.

    • In the case of a Key Fob:

      By default, a Key Fob is an offline device. In that regard, the offline expiration time is the validity time of the Key Fob.

      However, when a Key Fob obtains a server connection, the offline expiration time is reset. A Key Fob obtains a server connection remotely over-the-air by using the iLOQ FobApp application.

    • In the case of a Phone Key:

      When the phone loses connection to the mobile phone network, the offline expiration time starts to elapse. When this time has elapsed, the phone key is invalidated.

  12. Select Next.
  13. If necessary, select the person whom the key will be handed over to.
    Tip:

    If the desired person does not exist on the person list, you can add a new person by right-clicking to select Add new person.

  14. Select Next.
  15. Select the access right(s) for the key.
