The master card set is used to prepare the DoorLock devices with radio for operation. All IP wall readers that are connected via the SmartRelay are excluded. With the service key card, the radio components such as knobs, door handles or wall readers are integrated into the radio network and the communication is encrypted. Only one master card set is required per system or installation. We recommend using an extra set of master cards for each project.
- Pull off knob cover (See battery change)
- Pull out the lock from the battery compartment
Set up programming card set
- Hold the service key (yellow) in front of the knob for approx. 1 second to activate.
- Hold the service key again briefly in front of the knob. The service key is now programmed.
- Hold the service key briefly in front of the knob again to start the programming mode.
- Hold the battery replacement card(green) in front of the knob until a signal tone sounds.
- Hold the disassembly card(blue) in front of the knob until a signal tone sounds.
- Hold the service key in front of the knob to complete the process.
User and access management
The administration of users and access rights is done on the main device of the installation with KentixOne.
All information about the software is available in the KentixONE section.

Only a few steps are required for the installation. Please proceed as follows:
|Remove the faceplate screw and pull the existing cylinder out of the door.||Each Kentix profile cylinder comes with a new forend screw.|
|Insert the Kentix profile cylinder into the door. Then insert and tighten the forend screw.||The mechanical knob is already attached to the profile cylinder. Therefore, insert the profile cylinder into the guide from the inside of the door.|
|Insert the RFID radio knob into the cylinder until it clicks into place.|
|The installation is completed. If not already done, the knob can now be programmed with the card set.||Programming of the master card set in the knob should already be done before installation on the door.|
When the power of the batteries decreases, audible and visual warnings are generated by the device. This happens with decreasing battery power in 3 phases, during which, in addition to the warnings, the function of the device is limited. This is done in order to conserve the batteries as much as possible in the final stages and to allow them to be changed.
|Phase 1||5 short tones, simultaneously LEDs flash 5x red||Full function||A battery change will be necessary soon.|
|Phase 2||5 short tones, simultaneously LEDs flash 5x red||5 seconds delay of engagement, at the same time LEDs flash green||A battery change must be performed.|
|Phase 3||5 short tones, simultaneously LEDs flash 5x red||no engagement, but battery change position||A battery change must be performed immediately.|
|Complete emptying||No signaling||No function||A battery change must be performed immediately.|
Hold the battery replacement card in front of the knob module – the knob module moves to the battery replacement position. It may be necessary to wake up the knob module by turning it on before this step.
Simultaneously press in the now unlocked case locking pins of the knob module with the battery replacement tool and pull off the case.
Remove used batteries and insert new batteries, paying attention to polarity.
Press in the locking pins and push the knob module sleeve back on. Make sure that the locking pins are properly engaged in the sleeve.
After the battery change, the knob module is still in the battery change position. By presenting the battery replacement card or an authorized key again, the knob module moves back to the home position.
Battery change with low power adapter
If the battery of the DoorLock-DC Basic is completely discharged, the knob no longer shows any reactions (LEDs and signal tones). In the last phase of the drained battery condition, the knob always moves to the position where the pins can be pushed in to change the battery. If this is not the case, the low-power adapter (ORDER-CODE:KXC-BAT2) is required.
Application of the low power adapter
- Remove the plastic cover with the suction cup
- Hold the low-power adapter to the contacts of the knob and remain in this position
- Hold battery replacement card between knob and low-power adapter
- Remove the low-power adapter and press in the two opposite pins with battery change pliers
- By pulling, the cover of the knob can be removed and the battery can be taken out
- Insert new battery and bring the knob shell into the correct position
- Fix pins with battery change card
- Fasten plastic cover with logo
The following video shows the procedure for changing the battery with low-power adapter. You can find more information about the low-power adapter here: Low Power Adapter.
Maintenance and care of the cylinders or the entire lock should be performed 1x per year. Also make sure that all door components move freely.
