How to create an Ausweis lock [Android]FAQs
A complete guide.Tutorial:
To create an Ausweis lock, go to MY LOCKS section and tap + button in the top right corner of the screen.
Then, follow a step-by-step tutorial.
First of all, tap ADD LOCK button (screenshot on the left).
Note: make sure you have your Ausweis device installed and in the Wi-Fi coverage area prior to creating a new lock. Otherwise, you will not be able to create a new lock in your application (screenshot on the right).
Select your Ausweis device from a list by tapping ADD.
Specify the type of your lock. If you are using Ausweis as a separate access controller, select the type of your lock - electromechanical or electromagnetic. If you are using Ausweis as an additional controller to your regular access control system, select the third option.
Then, select the power supply options. Depending on your lock type, it can be either on or off. You can also set the timing of power supply.
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!
Enter the address of your lock. You can do it either manually or by tapping the map 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.
Enter your lock’s name.
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.
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.
Select the network from a list, enter the password, and then tap ADD LOCK.
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.
