Syncing the Lock to your app

WARNING: We recommend using the KAS Cloud Web Console to issue pin code access. **This is only provided as a last resort if your internet fails at the property.**
Syncing the lock to your app, allows you to issue pre-configured codes for specified hours or days and permanent access.
The sync is only required once, if you need to revoke access you will need to sync again.
1 pin code can not be revoked without revoking all codes. To revoke all codes you must be at the lock and sync with the app again.
Syncing can not be done from the console. This is a sync between the phone and locks only.
Console issued codes are different from auto-generated codes. There is no list of the codes that have been generated, you must manually manage the codes issued. The clock must be set for these codes to work.
  1. Tap the lock you just remanded, this time, Click Auto Generate Pine Code on this page.
  2. On the top right corner, press Sync. Once successful press ok
  3. You can also set the Clock now by pressing Clock, however setting the clock can be performed from the console too

Bluetooth Unlock

Bluetooth unlock can only be performed while in Bluetooth range
Now you can click on the “unlock” button in your App to unlock the lock by your mobile phones BLE connection

Troubleshooting

Greyed out means the lock is not connected to the phone's Bluetooth. This means you may be out the range if you are in the range try pulling down on the app to refresh the page or hard close the app and reopen it.

Remote Unlock

If your gateway has already been installed and configured you can now select the lock and press Remote Unlock.

This unlocking option is different from the Bluetooth unlock. You must have a gateway set up and connected to test this feature.
There may be a delay of up to 10 seconds, this is due to the internet speed and connecting between the gateway and lock.
Remote unlock can be performed from the console too. 

Setting up the Gateway

Your gateways should be installed at the point as per our recommendations, click below for the Gateway installation documentation
  1. Gateway - Installation

Make sure you can see the GWS Number sticker on the gateway. This will be needed later.

Pair the Gateway

  2. Login to KAS Cloud and go to the Setup then press Scan
  3. Select the Gateway factory number to activate it For example GWS10261

Configure Gateway

  1. Under Gateways, find the gateway you activate. Select it for more options
    1. For POE: You do not need to configure the connection. The gateway will automatically assign a dynamic IP address and connect to the network.
    2.  The LAN network must be DHCP enabled.
  2. For WIFI: Press Config and enter your wifi credentials 
    1. This is case sensitive
  3. Select the Gateway again and rename it to a name that is more recognisable to the property, then press OK. eg Floor 1, Ground Level 
Notes
  1. The gateway will automatically scan and discover nearby activated locks. You do not have to connect the gateway directly to any lock. 
  2. It may take up to 3 minutes for the device to discover the nearby lock.
  3. If you move a gateway position far away from an activated lock, it will automatically drop that connection and start new ones with other nearby locks.
  4. We suggest you leave the “GWS” stickers on the gateways for future identification purposes.
