KentixONE Operating mode

SiteManager OperationStand-alone operation
Further information on the operating mode


The Kentix AccessManager Radio is the management unit for Kentix DoorLock radio components such as DoorLock-DC (door knob) or DoorLock-LE (door handle). Up to 16 DoorLock radio components can be taught into the AccessManager radio. The AccessManager is network-compatible and is supplied with power via Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The AccessManager can be operated as a main device (operating mode: Main Device) or in a network (operating mode: Satellite Device) with other AccessManagers. The KentixONE software is already integrated via the integrated web server (HTTPS). Configuration is performed via web browser and, depending on the operating mode (operating mode: Main Device), locally on the AccessManager itself or on a central instance such as the SiteManager or AlarmManager (operating mode: Satellite Device).

The AccessManager radio is available in two radio technologies, namely BLE 2.4GHz and 868MHz. DoorLock components with different radio frequencies cannot be operated on one AccessManager. AccessManagers with different radio technologies can be networked together.
When selecting radio components, make sure you use the right radio technology.
For new projects, we recommend BLE 2.4GHz as the radio technology.

Connection of extensions at the system port

Additional system components such as leakage sensors, door contacts or external alarms from UPS or air conditioning units can be connected via the Kentix system port. The system port has 2 digital inputs and 2 digital outputs which are available via a RJ45 socket.

An extension module (ORDER CODE: KIO3) is required to connect external alarms. Above this, 2 potential-free contacts and 2 changeover relays can be wired.

A commercially available network patch cable (unshielded/shielded) with a length of up to 20 m can be used as the cable connection between the Kentix system port and the system component.

The Kentix system port is not a network port. Avoid connecting to network ports, especially PoE devices. The port is a Kentix specific expansion port and is only expandable with components designed for it.
Pins 4/5/8 are only enabled for internal use and must not be wired.

The assignment of the system port

System port (type: RJ45)Assignment of the contacts
1. internal system voltage (GND) – Not for external use*.
2. output 1 (open collector, max. 100mA)
3. output 2 (open collector, max 100mA)
4. external voltage / BUS (depending on device type)
5. external voltage /BUS (depending on device type)
6. input 1 (potential-free circuit)
7. input 2 (potential-free circuit)
8. internal system voltage (5/24VDC) – not for external use*

Factory settings

For initial configuration, use the IP address printed on the device or the address assigned via DHCP in a web browser (HTTPS). Please note the network settings of your connected PC.

The factory IP addresses at a glance:

SiteManager and AlarmManager192.168.100.222
Factory IP addresses, subnet mask:

For devices with a firmware version lower than 8.x.x, the login data for the preset administrator account are: admin / password

Reset to factory settings

  1. Restart the device (disconnect and reconnect the power supply).
  2. The status LED lights up briefly and then goes out.
  3. As soon as the status LED lights up green continuously, press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds until the device emits an acoustic feedback.
  4. The device loads the factory settings and performs a restart.
  5. After approx. 2 minutes, the device can be reached with the factory settings.

All existing settings and data will be irrevocably deleted !
We recommend regular backup of the system.

Configuration with KentixONE

The configuration is done via web browser (HTTPS) using the already integrated KentixONE software. Depending on the operating mode (Main or Satellite) of the device, the configuration takes place on the device itself (operating mode: Main), or on a central instance such as the SiteManager or AlarmManager (operating mode: Satellite).

All information about the software is available in the KentixONE section and the related documentation.

Before you start the configuration, make sure that the software is up to date on all network-enabled Kentix devices. The version status must be the same on all devices.
