Wall reader DoorLock-WA3-OUTDOOR – MANUAL



The IP wall readers enable contactless unlocking of doors with an RFID chip and/or PIN code as two-factor authentication. The IP wall readers always consist of the actual wall reader and the Kentix SmartRelay. The wall readers are connected using a SmartRelay and can then be connected to an AccessManager (KXP16) via Manager/Satellite mode. The wall reader is available in various designs for indoor/outdoor, surface-mounted/flush-mounted or for installation in intercom systems.

A Kentix AccessManager for cable readers (KXP-2-RS) is required to operate wall readers. Information about the relay and circuit diagrams including examples can be found here: Kentix SmartRelay (KXP-2-RS)

To be able to switch alarm zones on a wall reader, the following requirements must be met:

  • An AlarmManager must be connected in the AccessManager configuration.
  • The authorization to switch alarm zones must be activated in the user settings of the user.
  • The user must be assigned a PIN and/or RFID token. The alarm zone concerned must be selected in the configuration of the wall reader.

If the prerequisites are fulfilled, the key for arming or disarming can be pressed and then the PIN can be entered or the booking can be carried out with the token. If the action is successful, the LED lights up green and the zone is switched.

Connection example

One or two wall readers with door contacts and external door openers

Terminal 2 on the AccessManager provides communication via the data bus and the supply of operating voltage for the wall readers. (terminals 3-6). Terminal 2 serves as a common potential for the power supply of door openers with the PoE supply voltage of the AccessManager.

Terminal 1 is used for connection of potential-free contacts (“door contacts”, terminals 1-4) and switching of door openers by relay 2 (5-6) and relay 1 (7-8). Relay 1 and 2 switch terminal 1 to terminal 2 to common potential (terminal2, terminal 2).

One or two WallReaders on one AccessManager

Commissioning of two wall readers on one AccessManager
If two WallReaders are to be operated with one AccessManager, proceed as follows for commissioning:
Connect the first WallReader to the AccessManager. Add it in the main device with “DoorLock (IP)”. Only when the first WallReader has been put into operation, they connect the second device and add it as well.

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.
