Wakeup events is a configurable feature on all Assa Abloy WiFi locks that allows you to select the events that the locks must immediately report to the controller through WiFi radio.

Requirements

The minimum required firmware is Synergis™ Softwire 10.2 SR1.

How it works

By default, the Door forced open and Door open too long events wake up the lock's WiFi radio to report these events when they occur. Use the Wakeup events option on each individual lock, to select the events that wake up the WiFi radio. Events that are not selected to wake up the WiFi radio are reported on the next WiFi radio wakeup.

How to help minimize battery usage on WiFi locks

In some installations, locks can have a short battery life because the locks are generating many Door held open events that wake up the WiFi radio. Their battery life can be extended if it is acceptable to report Door held open events on the next scheduled or unscheduled radio wakeup. To prolong the battery life, set the Wakeup events option for these locks to Door forced open only. The Door forced open events wake up the WiFi radio and the Door held open events are reported on the next WiFi radio wakeup.
