The KeyPad is used to arm-disarm the AlarmManager on site. Like the MultiSensors, the KeyPad keyboard is integrated into the ZigBee© wireless network of the AlarmManager. Note, however, that the keyboard does not work as a router and cannot affect the range of the network.

The KeyPad turns on when any key is pressed. The maximum operating time is then approx. 10 seconds. Within this time, an assigned alarm zone can be armed or disarmed.

Internal controls

  1. Battery compartment: two AAA 1.5 V batteries are required to operate the device
  2. Teach-in key: This key is used to teach the device into the wireless network. To teach-in the sensor in KentixOne, start the teach-in process and then press the teach-in button for 3sec. Press until a signal tone is heard

Connect with WLAN

To add a KeyPad touch to KentixOne, select “+” in the Alarm Zones heading area of the Dashboard, then select “MultiSensor (Wireless)”.

Press the teach-in button for 3 seconds, which you reach via the recess on the back of the housing (2), until an acoustic signal sounds

The sensor should be detected within 15-20 seconds. The configuration mask for the sensor is then opened directly. The teach-in process is now complete

Operation via RFID

To operate the KeyPad by means of an RFID card, this can be used instead of the 4-digit PIN for authentication.
To do this, activate the KeyPad and then hold your RFID card in front of the X.

Only “armed-active” alarms can be switched via the KeyPad keypad.

Alarms of the type “Permanent active” are executed / signaled unaffected by the armed-disarmed state of the AlarmManager or the alarm zone.

Teach-in user / RFID cards

New RFID cards are read in via the user configuration in KentixOne on a KeyPad.

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.
