Locks

Locks refer to the lock cylinders in the locking system.

You can distribute system administration by allowing one user to order, that is, approve, programming changes to locks. Another user, for example, with limited usage rights, can carry out ordered programming tasks, but cannot modify the content of these programming tasks.

From the perspective of iLOQ Locking System, locks can be divided into two categories:

  • Logical locks — Logical locks are lock definitions that exist on iLOQ Manager only.

  • Physical locks — Physical locks refer to the actual lock cylinders.

Due to the nature of the offline system, it is important to understand that the state of the physical locks at the site and the state of the logical locks may differ in the state transition phase. Only when the lock programming state is Programmed, the physical lock and the logical lock have the desired, matching configuration. In all other states, there may be tasks pending for the lock. Thus, the Programmed state is always the desired state for the locks in the system.

On the software, it is important to understand whether the logical lock has a physical counterpart or not. If the logical lock has a serial number in the software, it also has a physical counterpart. If the logical lock does not have a serial number in the software, it is only a definition of a new lock. Thus, the logical lock programming state does not indicate whether the logical lock has a physical counterpart or not.
