The AXM’s structure

The AXM Lite interface consists primarily of four large sections:

AXM bar and tabs

Use the orange AXM button to expand the AXM bar:

This gives you access to all available tabs.

Below you will see the open tabs. Each task takes place within a tab. For example, there is a tab for Access Levels, a tab for Locations and so on.

Basically, you can operate the tabs in the same way that you would use your browser (see Tab operation).

There are three buttons next to the AXM button to skip directly to synchronisation of locking devices and identification media.

These can be used as an alternative to start synchronisation without entering the locking device or identification medium properties first.

On the right, you will find a global search function. This is where you can search the entire database for entries of all types (see Global search).

Matrix section

The matrix section is the engine room behind your AXM Lite. This is where you can see all locking devices and identification media. You can use the filter function to hide entries and thus gain an overview (see Sorting and filtering).

Each row normally represents a locking device and each column represents an identification medium. This identification medium’s authorisation for this locking device is indicated where rows and columns meet (see Permissions). There are basically two different main states:

Various details can be displayed in the matrix. One is the synchronisation state. If you see the synchronise icon here, you need to synchronise (see Synchronisation: Comparison between locking plan and reality). Click on to start synchronising the entry concerned immediately.

The matrix section also contains an action bar that you can use to edit the matrix:

Wizard menu

There is a wizard menu on the right side of your AXM Lite. This is where you will find wizards to assist you in situations that occur frequently (e.g. lost identification media).

If you need more space, you can use Assistenten wegklappen: >> [offen] to hide the wizard menu and Assistenten ausklappen: << [offen] to show it.

User/project Bar

You can see the user and project names at the bottom of the screen.


One new feature in AXM Lite is the dashboard (see View statistics and warnings (dashboard)). The dashboard provides you with statistics on your database and gives you warnings – when a task has not yet been completed, for example.

The dashboard can be accessed via the AXM bar.


The log allows you to keep track of who changes what in the database and when they make the change (see Tracking activities in the database (log)).

The log can also be accessed via the AXM bar.
