Schlage Handkey with Access It! Universal.NET


Overview

This document outlines the two wiring schemes and software setup for configuring the Schlage HandKey Integration for Access It! Universal.NET 5.1 or greater.

Access It! Universal.NET Licensing
The following licensing option must be enabled within the Access It! Universal.NET dongle and is a system wide license.

  • Biometric Support - Yes

Supported SCPs

  • EP-1501 min f/w 1.173
  • EP-1502 min f/w 1.173
  • EP-2500 min f/w 1.173

Required SIOs

  • MR-52 min f/w 1.57

External Reader with HandKey Reader

A card and / or PIN must be presented to the external reader before the HandKey reader will request biometric verification.

This adds a second layer of security for high risk areas.

For specific hardware references, see tables below.

HandKey Reader Only

When not using an external reader, the system will require a PIN to be entered on the HandKey keypad reader before the HandKey reader will request biometric verification.

This PIN is assigned within the cards properties.

For specific hardware references, see tables below.

Enrollment Reader

An enrollment reader is used to capture the biometric template. The enrollment reader is wired directly to a computers communication port via a RS-232 / RS-485 converter. The enrollment workstation must have Access It! Universal installed. The templates are then stored within the database and then downloaded to the SCPs.

Hardware / Wiring References
Access It! Universal.NET 5.1 introduces the ability to wire a Handkey unit directly to the reader port of a MR-52 via RS-485 eliminating the need for a legacy gateway device. The Handkey gateaway must be configured for a RS-485 baud rate of 9600.

The MR-52 must be running a minimum firmware of 1.57.
