Morpho Biometrics

In Config Tool, you add the access control unit that is physically connected to the biometric device, and then assign the device to a door entity as a reader. Remember, for your door entity to be functional, you must map the hardware wiring of the door (reader connections, door locks, door sensors, REX’s, buzzers, and so on) to the door entity, so that Access Manager knows how to control the door, and so that you receive related event notifications.

Before you begin

  • In Config Tool, add the access control unit that is physically connected to the MorphoManager Biometric Device. The biometric device is created as a reader that is attached to the access control unit.
  • In Config Tool, add a door entity.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task.
  2. Select the door entity to configure, and then click the Hardware tab.
  3. From the Preferred unit drop-down list, select the access control unit that is connected to the door.
  4. From one of the Door side sections, select the biometric device from the Reader drop-down list.
    Assign the reader to the Door side In or Door side Out section, depending on the configuration of your door.
  5. In the Additional connections section, add a door lock and map it to the door lock output so that Security Center receives events when the door is locked and unlocked.
  6. Add any other connections, such as sensors and buzzers, that are physically wired on your door.
  7. Click Apply.
