Relevant section: External power supply & fail-safe electric lock with dry contact
YOU WILL NEED
- Kisi Controller Pro 1 (comes with a 24V Universal AC power supply)
Not included with Kisi purchase:
- 12 or 24V DC fail safe electric strike or magnetic lock
- Ethernet Cable
- Low Voltage Wires
- External Power Supply for lock
- Push to exit button/motion sensor
SEQUENCE FOR WIRING KISI CONTROLLER PRO TO A FAIL-SAFE DOOR LOCK
- Wire one of the four door relays to the external power supply and the fail-safe lock on your door. Since you will be wiring the relay as a dry contact, you will start by wiring the relay to the power supply from COM (Common) and NO (Normally Open) on the Kisi relay to the GND (Ground) and IN (Input) of the power supply. Next, you will need to run the negative wires to COM (Common) and run positive to NC (Normally Closed) back to the lock.
- The wiring should also run to a keypad outside the space and a REX (Request to Exit) inside the space. A keypad should be used as a back-up mode of access in case the internet goes down. A REX allows an occupant to exit the door without using Kisi, and would refer to either a motion sensor or a push-to-exit button. Wire your REX to IN1 (Input 1) and GND (Ground) in the REX component.
- Connect the external power supply to a fire alarm system. This is in accordance with safety code - when the fire alarm triggers, power to the Kisi Controller Pro will be interrupted and the doors will automatically unlock. Kisi recommends connecting fire alarms to the external power supply as that unit has its own fire alarm control panel (FACP) which shuts down the locks when the fire alarm is triggered.
- Once complete, power the Kisi Controller Pro using provided power supply and input. A blue light should come on if powered.
- Plug in the Ethernet cable, you should see a green blinking light on the top right-hand corner of the board. This indicates that the Kisi Controller Pro is online. If the light is not green, please refer to this troubleshooting guide.
