Setting up a Device for use as a lockdown control in the ProdataKey app is a relatively straightforward process.
No wiring or additional hardware is required
Please be aware that this will result in an additional billable Device.
Following the steps to Add a Device,
- Add a new Premium IO Device to the Cloud Node system to a Port number greater than present on the Controller (Port 2 on a Cloud Node or Red 1 for example).
- Name the Device ('Mobile Lockdown' or 'Panic Button' for example), and then select an appropriate Public Facing icon.
- In the Device Details window, set the 'Open/Close Dwell' option to 1 second.
Once this is complete, a Partner with the appropriate Permission level (Manager, Admin, Integrator) will need to create Access and Event rules for the new Device and the Mobile Lockdown Event. This is detailed in our article 'How to set up and use a Mobile Lockdown control in the Prodatakey App'.
