How to use your User ID
Your building manager will assign you a number that will be your User ID. You must remember this ID in order to gain access through an EntraGuard controlled door. If you forget this number, see
your building manager. The following instructions are for gaining access through the door by using your User ID.
Note: This User ID is a personal identification number allowing access to a secured area. Care should be taken to not let any unauthorized persons know this number. Anyone who knows this
number may gain access through the EntraGuard controlled door.
Approach the EntraGuard unit
If you have entered a valid User ID, the LCD will display “Please Enter” and the door will unlock allowing you to enter.
Note: See your building manager if you encounter any problems using your User ID.
3.0 How To Accept a Call
When you have a visitor at the EntraGuard controlled door, they will use the EntraGuard controller to call you.
When the phone rings, answer it. Your visitor will inform you they are at the EntraGuard unit.
Press the telephone key(s) that correspond to the tasks you want performed (see the Assigned Telephone Command Codes section) below for your EntraGuard unit.
The following commands may be executed from your telephone when connected with the EntraGuard controller.
Unlock Door 1
The telephone key assigned to this task, when pressed, unlocks the door controlled by the EntraGuard unit and allows a visitor access to the building. Once this key is pressed, the connection
between your phone and the EntraGuard unit is terminated.
The telephone key assigned to this task, when pressed, terminates the connection between your phone and the EntraGuard controller without performing any other function (such as unlocking the
Activate Output 1
The telephone key assigned to this task, when pressed, activates an output such as turning on the foyer lights. This output is determined by your building manager. When this key is pressed, the
connection between your phone and the EntraGuard unit remains until pressing the keys for “Unlock Door 1” or “Hang Up.”
Activate Output 2
The telephone key assigned to this task, when pressed, activates a second output previously determined by your building manager. When this key is pressed, the connection between your
phone and the EntraGuard unit remains until pressing the keys for “Unlock Door 1” or “Hang Up.”
Dave’s friend Tom has come to visit him. Dave will want to activate 2 tasks when Tom arrives. First, he will want to turn on the lobby lights (which has been assigned to Output 1 and given the
telephone command code of 6), and then he will want to unlock the door (which has been assigned to Unlock Door 1 and given the telephone command code of 9). Performing these two tasks will
allow Tom to enter the building and give him extra lighting to find Dave’s apartment.
When Tom arrives at the EntraGuard unit, he uses it to call Dave on his home phone.
Dave first presses the number 6 key on his telephone (turning on the lobby lights).
Upon completion of these tasks, Dave hangs up the phone.
Note: Since the task of unlocking the door will automatically terminate the connection between the home phone and the EntraGuard unit, perform all other tasks prior to unlocking the door.
