To enable the passage mode on doors controlled by Assa Abloy IP locks, you must create a Boolean custom field named PassageMode for doors, and set it to TRUE on the doors on which you want to have this feature enabled.

What you should know

Passage mode is a feature available on all Assa Abloy IP locks. This feature allows any authorized cardholder to keep the lock in the unlocked state by presenting their credential. Depending on the lock controller and the lock brand, the cardholder needs to present their credential once or twice. Repeating the process returns the lock to its normal state.
To start or stop the passage mode when the reader is in Card or PIN, or Card and PIN mode, do one of the following:
Passage mode with single badge
The following applies to all Sx locks and the following Cx locks: SARGENT and Corbin Russwin IN120 and IN220.
NOTE: Passage mode with single badge does not work for cardholders with a security clearance value lower than 7.
Card or PIN
Either badge once or enter the PIN to start the passage mode.
Card and PIN
Badge first, and then enter the PIN to start the passage mode.
Passage mode with double badge
The following applies to all Px locks, Sx locks running Hx firmware, and the following Cx locks: SARGENT Passport 1000 P1 and P2, Corbin Russwin Access 700 PIP1 and PWI1, SARGENT and Corbin Russwin IN120 and IN220 locks with a PERSONA serial number. The IN120 and IN220 locks can either be ordered or configured manually. See instructions below.
  1. With the lock connected to a workstation, open the lock configuration file using the LCT tool.
  2. From the Lock Configuration tab, click the Settings icon.
  3. Click the Serial Number Setup tab.
  4. Change the Manufacturer and Board Type to Persona.
  5. Apply the changes and follow the on-screen instructions. The lock now has a new serial number.
  6. Using LCT, re-apply the configuration to the lock.
  7. If the lock was already added to the Synergis™ unit, do the following in Config Tool: (1) Delete the lock and re-add it using the new serial number. (2) Re-configure the door entity hardware with the new lock.
Card or PIN
Badge twice to start the passage mode. The PIN cannot be used.
Card and PIN
Badge first, and then enter the PIN. Badge again to start the passage mode.

The first time the passage mode is triggered, it creates two custom events in the system: Passage Mode Start and Passage Mode End, that you can use to configure event-to-actions.

Procedure

  1. Create a Boolean type custom field for door entities, and name it PassageMode.
    You must spell the name exactly as it is written, with capital and lowercase letters.
  2. Open the Area view task and set the PassageMode custom field to TRUE for all doors where this feature must be enabled.
    Tip: If you need this feature enabled on many doors, we recommend using the Copy configuration tool.
