ASSA ABLOY WELCOMESyou to Certified Integrator IP Enabled Lock Training
The Purpose of this class Teaching you to set up and program the lock.
The Purpose of this class We will NOT be teaching: • Computer Networking • Network Installation • Network Encryption • Network Security Only What’s NeededTo Make The Lock Work!
If More Information Is Needed… We Can Provide The Documents That Will Answer Your Questions!
Agenda: • Conducting a site survey • Setting up the lock • Using the software
Third, He enters this information into the NCT Program, providing a file for the CI
Seventh, Users, Time Zones and other info is programmed using EAC Software
The First Step A successful installation begins with verifying the network coverage at the opening. We need to verify the wireless network coverage at the door. We do this by conducting a site survey.
Site Survey • Necessary for successful deployment of wireless Locksets • Creates a Wireless coverage picture of the facility • Hot Spots • Dead Zones • Determines if more APs are needed
A laptop will not work for this. It has a large WiFi Antenna. The Lock has a small antenna in a metal case.
Site Survey Tool (SST) • The Cisco AIR-CB21AG-A-K9 can be purchased. The card covers 802.11A/B/G standards • It comes with a Cisco Site Survey Tool utility • Allows for use with any laptop with a PCMCIA CardBus slot. • Provides Real Time Data
How to conduct a site survey… Cisco Aironet Utility – Associate with network • Insert the Cisco card into your Laptop • Open the Cisco Aironet Utility and find and associate with the wireless network • Click on the Scan button
Cisco Aironet Utility – Associate with network • Find the SSID that the IT department has given you • Click “Activate”
Cisco Aironet Utility – Associate with network • Type in a familiar name for you to remember the settings on the “Profile Name” field
Cisco Aironet Utility – Associate with network • Click the “Security” tab. • You can see the type of security being used on this wireless network. • You have now “ASSOCIATED” with the AP and wireless network. • You can now run the Cisco Site Survey Utility Program.
Cisco SST Utility • Click the first tab, “Associated Access Point” (AP) status • The utility provides a graphical and numerical representation of • Signal strength • Noise • Signal/Noise ratio in dB • Link Speed in Mbps • The utility also gives information about what AP it is currently associated with.
Cisco SST Utility • A second tab, AP scan list, shows all available APs • This is helpful in determining conditions like over lapping channels and adjacent (Cisco suggests five channel separation between APs) • It also gives a general overview of available APs and SSIDs in the area
How to conduct a Site Survey • What you need • Close all doors that the signal must pass through from the AP to the lock to emulate worst case scenario • Laptop with/ Cisco SST software installed • Cisco Aeronet Card • Site Survey Forms 1 per door • IT Information • Need SSID • Need encryption info
How to Site Survey • Walk to Lock location • Get Signal, noise and signal to noise ratio on the outside and inside of the door (with the door closed) • Record values on Site Survey Sheet • View the AP list for overlapping APs in the area • Note any overlap in channels • Repeat for every door • Evaluate results for each door
Example • This is a comparison between two doors • Signal Strength is not the only factor in a site Survey • The picture on the left is a lock that has stable communication • The picture on the right is a lock that has intermittent communication • Note the top lines or signal strength is almost the same picture to picture. But the non working lock on the right has a red for transmit speed and shows a lower Signal/Noise ratio. This indicates a bad connection.
How to Complete a Site Survey Any questions about conducting a site survey?

Setting up the lock Five questions we need to answer… WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHEN? HOW?
Setting up the lock We have to tell the lock WHO it is Determine WHAT system it will talk to Tell the lock WHERE that system is WHEN the lock will communicate HOW it will communicate
A Sixth question… WHY are we taking these steps? ? ? ? The Lock Doesn't Know Anything!
To answer these questions, we will be using two tools: Network Configuration Tool - NCT Lock Configuration Tool - LCT
Network & Lock Configuration Tools • The lock and network configuration tools were created to ease the install process by creating a tool that uses simple GUIs • Network Configuration Tool • Simple for IT professionals to enter IT information in a secure fashion to the installers • Lock Configuration Tool • Uses the data you entered into the NCT program and inputs that into the lock • Easy to use GUI that allows for lock installers to set up locks with little IT knowledge
Wireless Lock Configuration • Configurable Items: • IP Address • DHCP or Static • Host IP (Computer that runs the Access Control Software) Always a Static Value! • Subnet • Encryption • Serial Number (Electronic serial number in the lock) • Set by Factory
How to use NCT Open the NCT file on your computer
Configuration Tool – NCT Overview • Used to create site file • Each lock is defined and named • File contains all IT info • IP Address • Subnet • Encryption • SSID • Port • Host IP
NCT – Enter Site Name • Site name • The site name is the designation for this set of locks and is typically represented by the company name, company plus division, etc.
NCT – Enter Inactivity Timeout • Inactivity Timeout • The Inactivity Timeout determines how long the LCT will wait for user input before automatically terminating. This is a security measure. The default value is 300 seconds or 5 minutes.
NCT – Enter Installer Password • Installer Password • The Installer Password allows the installer to use the data but not to view the network communication parameters.
NCT – Enter IT Password • IT Password • The IT Password allows the IT administrator to view and edit all network communication parameters for all defined locks.
NCT – 2. Lock Info (if DHCP) • Lock Info • By default the ‘Locks’ section will be in “View Mode”. • To create a new lock entry, click on the “New” button. • The Lock area will change color and “Add Mode” will be displayed Information can now be entered.
NCT – Enter Lock Name (if DHCP) • Name • Helps the installer identify the lock • “West Stairwell Door” • “Rear Exterior Door”, etc • Use meaningful names
NCT – Enter Lock Serial Number (if DHCP) • Serial Number • Serial number - 16 character identifier taken from the label on the lock controller or from the lock information sticker included in each box
NCT – Check Box “DHCP” (if DHCP) • DHCP • DHCP • If this box is checked, the IT department has determined that the locks will be assigned IP addresses dynamically by their system • In this case, the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway fields remain blank
NCT – Enter IP Info (if Static) • Static IP’s • If this DHCP box is un-checked, the locks need to be assigned the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway as determined by the IT department
NCT – Enter SSID (DHPC or Static) • SSID • For determining which wireless network should the locks communicate through to the network • Information must be supplied by the IT department • Case sensitive
NCT – Enter EAC IP Address (DHPC or Static) • EAC IP Address • EAC IP Address (Host Address) • Must be a static IP address of the Access Control Software Server
NCT – Enter EAC Port Info(DHPC or Static) • Ports • 2571 by default • This allows the locks to communicate directly to the computer that controls the locks (Host PC) • The IT department may need to “open” ports for these locks to talk directly to the Host PC and no where else on the network
