How to create an Ausweis lock [iOS]FAQs
To create an Ausweis lock, go to MY LOCKS section and tap + button in the top right corner of the screen.
Note: make sure you have your Ausweis device installed and on prior to creating a new lock.
Then, follow a step-by-step tutorial.
First of all, scan the QR code of your Ausweis device. It is located on its body. On a screenshot below, we are scanning a QR code from the device’s motherboard.
Select the type of your lock and the power supply options. If your lock opens on power supply, please, set the timing.
Power supply options: on - the lock opens when a pulse is applied to a relay; off - no pulse is needed.
Timing is the pulse duration needed to open the lock. Please, read your lock instructions carefully before setting this parameter. Danger! Do not damage the lock!
Name your lock.
Enter the address of your lock. You can do it either manually or by tapping the pointer button and selecting the address on Google Maps. In Google Maps you can either select the found location or a nearby place.
Note: turn on geolocation on your device to improve the accuracy.
Select lock mode. It can be either offline or online. The online mode means your device will be connected to WiFi while operating. The offline mode means firmware allows the device to connect to the phone without the Internet.
If you select Offline, you will be able to open your door in offline mode. If you select Online, you will need to choose Wi-Fi network to connect to your Ausweis device. Select the network from a list, enter the password, and then tap REGISTER.
Important! For the first registration, it is crucial that your device is online in the coverage area of the WiFi network. WIthout it, your lock will not be activated on the server. Therefore, you will not be able to open the entrance.
Congratulations! You created your Ausweis lock. It will appear in MY LOCKS section and you will be the admin. Now you will be able to open this entrance with just one swipe.
