Enable cards or transponders

When you created your locking system, you decided in the Type drop-down menu which type of identification media should be used in your locking system:

Circumstances may have changed in the meantime and you would now like to use cards in your locking system, for example. You thus switch your locking system from active (= transponder only) to hybrid (= transponder + cards). This is not a problem with AXM Classic as you can simply activate additional cards or transponders here.

Please note that you can only address a limited number of locking devices with cards when cards are enabled at a later date (see Cards and locking device IDs).

You will not have this problem with transponders enabled at a later date.

Enabling cards

The following example describes how you can also use cards in an exclusively transponder-based locking system. When we say cards, we are also referring to other RFID identification media, such as smart tags or RFID inlays. The MC1000L_AV template is used in the example.

  1. AXM Classic open.
  2. At least one locking system created (see Create locking system).
  1. Click on the orange AXM icon .
  2. AXM bar opens.
  3. Select the Locking Systems entry in the SETTINGS group.
  4. The Locking Systems tab with a list of all locking systems in the database will open.
  5. Use to sort/filter the displayed entries if required (see Sorting and filtering).
  6. Select the locking system in which you’d like to enable cards or transponders.
  7. The Locking system window will open.
  8. Select your locking system type from the Type drop-down menu: Transponder only, Transponders & cards or Cards only.
  9. A warning window will open.
  10. Click on the Yes button.
  11. Warning window closes.
