Programming Locks using Plastic Keys

Programming Locks using Plastic Keys

Print

To program with a plastic key, you will need to create a Creation Card and a Time Card. 


Creation Card: 

  • Click ROOM MANAGEMENT 
  • Select ROOM INFORMATION 
  • Highlight the room you are looking to program
  • Put a blank key on the encoder
  • Click CREATE ROOM

You should receive a successful message on the Card Info panel

 

Next create a Time Card: 

  • Click CARD MANAGEMENT
  • Click MAKE SPECIAL CARD
  • Select SETTINGS CARD
  • TIME CARD (The time should be set forward a few minutes, to make sure you get to the lock at the same time the card is set.)
  • Place a blank card on the reader
  • Click CONFIRM

You should receive a success message.

 

Then go to the reader with the Authorization Card, Time Card, and Creation Card. Place the Auth Card to the lock until it registers, then place the other two cards to the lock. This will program the unit. 

 

To test, go back to the computer and create a new guest card, trying it at the reader or lock.
