Enrolling SALLIS locks - Synergis™ Softwire 10.11

Synergis™ Softwire Integration Guide 10.11

Synergis™ Softwire 10.11

For the Synergis™ unit to communicate with the SALLIS locks, you must enroll them with Synergis™ Appliance Portal.

Before you begin

Set up your SALTO SALLIS infrastructure (routers, nodes, and wireless locks) according to the instructions found in the SALLIS Installation & Maintenance Guide. You must first define the nodes and the doors using the SALLIS application (Sy-S-SALLISCNF), then update the routers and initialize the locks using the PPD (Portable Programmer Device Sy-PPD). As you do this, write down the following information:
IP router
IP address and port number.
RS-485 router
Synergis™ unit channel the router is connected to (A, B, C, or D).
Router, lock ID, and the door where it is installed.

Use descriptive door names, for example “4th floor storage room”. If you have already created the door entities in Security Center, use the same names for ease of reference.

What you should know

The steps and instructions tagged with Hardening are optional, but will protect your system against cyberattacks.


  1. Log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  2. Click Configuration > Hardware
  3. At the top of the Hardware column, click Add ().
  4. In the Add hardware dialog box, select Salto as the Hardware type.
  5. Identify the channel where the SALLIS router is connected, and do one of the following:
    • Select the IP channel, and enter the IP address and port number used by the router.

    • Select an RS-485 channel (A, B, C, or D). All interface modules connected to the same RS-485 channel must be from the same manufacturer.

  6. (Hardening) If you want encryption, select Enable encryption and enter the AES site key.
    NOTE: You cannnot change the encryption settings through the Add hardware dialog box on an existing channel. To enable encryption after the channel has been created, you will have to change the channel configuration on Synergis™ Appliance Portal.

  7. In the same dialog box, add all interface modules connected to the same channel.
    You can enroll the interface modules automatically or manually.
    Tip: If you know your lock IDs (physical addresses) and you only have a few to enroll, it would be faster to enroll them manually.
    Do one of the following:
    • To enroll automatically, click Scan

      The scan feature finds and enrolls all interface modules from the same manufacturer that are connected to the same channel.

      If the controller does not find all connected interface modules, make sure they all have a different physical address.

    • To enroll manually, enter the lock ID as the Physical address, and click Add ().
    NOTE: Valid lock IDs are 1-16 for RS-485 routers, and 1-64 for PoE routers.

    Repeat as necessary to configure all wireless locks connected to the same channel.

  8. Click Save.
    The hardware type, channel, and interface module you just added appear in the Hardware configuration page.

After you finish

  • Test your interface module connection and configuration from the I/O diagnostics page.
  • Associate your doors to the SALLIS locks in Security Center.
