Adding Apartment Locks

This section describes how to add apartment locks to the system.

At this phase, you add:

  • Basic lock data
  • Additional lock data
  • Access rights

The basic data and additional data views are for entering data of the lock itself and the access rights view is for setting the access rights for the generated locks. As the locks are generated within a controlled process, lock-specific access rights are automatically generated.

This phase is run once only. You are prompted for the information required to generate the locks, and all locks are automatically generated and left in the ordered state. 

Proceed as follows.

  1. Select Add locks: basic data.

    The screen below is opened:

      In conjunction with initial programming, always connect the RTC unit to the connection cable on the lock. After this, do not disconnect the RTC unit from the connection cable.

      If you have disconnected the RTC unit from the connection cable, you must restart the RTC unit. You can do this by inserting a programming key, connected to the programming cable, to the keyway of the lock cylinder. Always carry out this procedure after disconnecting the RTC unit.

      • D5 normal, the lock is an offline lock.

      • S5, the lock is an S5 lock.

      • S5 Online, the lock is an online S5 lock connected to a network module.

        If the lock type is S5 Online, also select whether or not the system automatically receives audit trail events from the lock, by checking the Save lock audit trails automatically check box.

      • S50 normal, the lock is an online S50 lock.

    • Lock collects audit trail — Select whether the lock collects audit trail or not.
