Blocking a Key

This section describes how to block a key on iLOQ Manager. This function is used to prevent a key from accessing the locks.


To block a Phone Key from accessing the locks, it is usually sufficient enough to empty and return the key. See Returning and Emptying a Phone Key. Only in cases when this function cannot be completed, it may be necessary to block the Phone Key with the blocking function. The administrator also has the possibility to use offline expiration time to control the key validity. See Key Offline Expiration Time.

Adding a key to the blocked list is a possible without the Programming Token, but removing keys from the blocked list always requires the Programming Token, for security purposes.

Proceed as follows to add a key to the blocked list.

  1. Select Basic data > Browse blocklist.

  2. Select Add to blocklist.

    The Add to blocklist wizard is opened.

  3. Select Add a key to the blocklist.
  4. Select the key that you want to add to the blocklist.
  5. Select Next.
  6. Select how to proceed with the locks affected.

    The options are:

    • Leave in planning state — Select Leave in planning state if you want to leave the blocklist in the planning state, and order it later. After this, the blocklist status will be In planning.


      So far, you have just added the key to the block list, but the new blocklist version has not been sent to the keys, which will spread the list over to the locks. When you want to send the new blocklist version to the keys, see Ordering a Blocklist.

    • Order blocklist — Select Order blocklist if you want to order the blocklist from the server and send it to Phone Keys. After this, the blocklist status will be Ordered.

  7. Select Next.
  8. A summary screen is shown.
  9. Select Ready.
  10. Select Close.
