Adding a New Lock

This section describes how to add locks to iLOQ Locking System.


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

Proceed as follows.

  1. Select Basic data > Browse locks.

  2. Select Add lock.
    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. 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.

      If you are adding several locks at a time, set the first locking target in a way that it ends with a number, such as Apartment A1. In this way, the system adds consecutive locking targets as follows:

      • Apartment A1
      • Apartment A2
      • Apartment A3
      • ...
    • Lock cylinder — Lock cylinder refers to the lock cylinder type. Select the type in the drop-down list, or enter the type manually.
    • Clock installed — Select Clock installed if there is a clock circuit in the lock. If the selected Lock cylinder contains a clock, Clock installed will be automatically selected.
    • Lock type — Select whether the Lock type is:

      • Normal, the lock is an off-line lock.

      • Networked, the lock is an on-line lock connected to a network module.

        If the lock type is Networked, also select whether or not the system automatically receives audit trail events from the lock, by checking the Receive the audit trails automatically check box.

  5. Select Next.

    The default access right will be automatically added for the lock.

    1. Select the desired access right in the list on the left.
    2. You can manage the selection of access right with the key buttons as follows:

      •  — Click the Arrows left button to remove all items from the selection list.
  9. If necessary, set the lock to handle time limits by checking the Lock handles time limits check box.

    If a key is time limited, but the lock does not handle key time limits, the key functions all the time.

  10. Select Next.
  11. Select if you want to create an individual access right or not.

  15. Select how to proceed.

    The options are:

      For more information, see Ordering Locks.

    • Order and program locks — Select Order and program locks:
      • If you know that the lock definitions are final, and you want to program the lock at once.
      • For locks that have not yet been installed on the premises.

      For more information, see Programming Locks.

    • Order and transfer tasks to programmer — Select Order and transfer tasks to programmer if you are deploying a mounted lock, and you want to program it by disconnecting the Programmer from the computer, and taking it to the lock to be deployed. You can only do this for one lock at a time.


      In this case, you will have two tasks for the lock: a formatting task on the token and a programming task on the Programmer. Insert the programming cable to the lock, wait for the green status light, and repeat once to get both tasks carried out.

  16. Select Next.
  17. A summary screen is shown.
