Troubleshooting

WQXM-PG Interface page shows no communication status message/color

  • Validate the Over-Watch configuration
  • Ensure matching certificate is used between LP-4502 and Wi-Q gateway
  • Press UPDATE after making any configuration changes on the Interface page

WQXM-PG Interface page reports Connection Missing

This indicates that the gateway cannot communicate with Over-Watch on the LP4502 panel. Things to check during this state include:

  • Panel power and network connectivity
  • Gateway network connectivity
  • Ensure that Over-Watch is installed and configured on the LP4502 panel
  • Validate that the Over-Watch configuration in the WQXM-PG Interface page matches exactly what is configured in the LP4502
  • Validate the IP address configured for Over-Watch in the WQXM-PG Interface page matches the IP address of the LP4502 panel
  • Ensure that both the WQXM-PG and the LP4502 panel are configured with the same certificate – either the default or the customer/dormakaba provided.
  • Ensure port 1883 (or the configured port) is open on the customer network
  • Ensure the IP addresses for the WQXM-PG and the LP4502 panel are either on the same subnet or the customer network allows routing between the subnets.

With WQXM-PG firmware version 4.1.0.9 or later, the TEST CONNECTION button can be used to assist with basic connectivity. When the button is pressed, the gateway will validate that the IP address and the port of the LP4502 panel are reachable. One of three responses will be shown:

  • Action Successful – Connection is available: This indicates that the IP address and port are good. The communication status should change to Yellow – Connection In Progress when this configuration is used.
  • Action Error – Ping Failure. Check IP Address.: This indicates that the specified IP address of the LP4502 panel could not be reached. Check that the LP4502 panel is powered on, connected to the network, configured with the correct IP address, and ensure the IP addresses for the WQXM-PG and the LP4502 panel are either on the same subnet or the customer network allows routing between the subnets
  • Action Error – Bad or Blocked Port. Check Port Number.: This indicates that the specified port number could not be accessed. Check that the port number entered matches the port number configured in the LP4502 panel Over-Watch page. Ensure that the customer network is not blocking this port. Ensure that the specified IP address is for the LP4502 panel and not for some other device on the customer network.
