Outside room:

The device, with transponder cards, enables controlling entry to the rooms where it is installed externally. The transponder reader has two relays to control the door lock, a courtesy light, or for other uses; the device is moreover equipped with two inputs for connecting electrical equipment of the on/ off type (for instance to control the door open or closed switch, a magnetic contact for signalling an open or closed window, bathroom ceiling pull-cord alarm etc).On the front of the reader there are four LEDs, each of which associated with an icon for signalling the following states:

  • Access (entry allowed or entry denied).
  • Guest status (room occupied or do not disturb).
  • Call status (rescue request with bathroom ceiling pull-cord, room service call etc).
  • Services status (make-up room etc).

With pocket for inside room:

The device enables checking for presence in the room of the guest or service staff by unambiguously identifying the transporter card inserted. The reader with a pocket is equipped with two relays that can be configured for managing door locking, controlling a courtesy light, optimizing energy consumption for even more uses.

Both types of transponder reader are able to dialogue with other KNX devices.
