With this technology you can implement a simple and efficient access control system for your own home and/or business at an unbeatable price - performance ratio!
Through seamless integration with the Loxone Configuration Software, you can easily change access rights at different times of day or link access to other functions. (e.g.: When you get home in the evenings and put your electric key to the reader: the door unlocks, the hall and living rooms lights turn on, and your favorite music starts playing.) Your imagination is the only limit!
This solution also lends itself perfectly to many other uses, for example for the protection of machinery. Objective: Only authorized personnel are allowed to use certain machines.
At the Loxone US office in Lexington KY we use this access control system very successfully in our building.
This is a "1-Wire Solution". In order to use an electronic iButton reader with Loxone, you'll also need Loxone's 1-Wire Extension or a similar 1-Wire device.
When the key is put to the iButton reader, a signal is sent. If it is a magnetic key (iButton), it is then held in place by the reader. The iButton reader can be connected to a 1-Wire device, such as Loxone's 1-Wire Extension. Only 1 iButton reader can be used per Extension, but limitless iButtons can be used.
Fitting & installation
To use the electronic key reader simply mount it in the wall on panels or enclosures . The electronic key reader is suitable for installation in panels or enclosures to 10mm (.39 in) thickness and a through-hole diameter of 20mm (.78 in). Due to the rust and acid-resisting steel the iButton 1-Wire Reader is perfect for outdoor usage. It withstands extreme temperatures and weather conditions.
The electronic key reader is connected to the 1- Wire Extension . The white wire of the "DATA " of the extension , the gray wire to "GND". The yellow wire is the common ground of the two LEDs . Green = green LED ; Red = Red LED
Green LED : U = 2.1 V 20 mA
Red LED : U = 1.95 V 20 mA
Use at higher voltage matching series resistor.
