INTRODUCTION
An authorized Operator of LockView® can create a database of users and locks on a
local or networked computer. Each user in this computer's database is assigned to a
slot in each lock to which they have access. A lock's internal memory is divided into 999
slots that store user information thereby giving each lock a maximum of 999 users. That
is, 999 individuals are capable of opening the toolbox.
The computer on which LockView® is loaded has the ability to connect to locks directly,
through a USB dongle or through a computer network, using Ethernet or 802.11g Wi-Fi,
and update the lock's memory to correspond with its own database. It is able to gather
and manipulate a lock's audit trail, or past operation log. Audit trail information contains
the lock’s name, the name of the user attempting to gain access, the credential used, if
access was granted or denied, and the date and time of each interaction.
LockView NTC 4 works with LockServ to communicate with locks. LockServ has the
ability to communicate with multiple locks simultaneously over a computer network,
thereby eliminating the need for the Operator to visit each lock to update its database,
or download audit trails.
Alternately, LockServ can communicate with locks using a USB dongle if network
hardware is not available.

generate a random PIN.
k If an unit is connected at the time, and is equipped with a magstripe card reader, HID Prox reader, HID iCLASS reader, or

k To manually input an HID credential (Prox or iCLASS), select ProxCard and click the more info button […]. The HID Facility
Code, Card Number, and bit Format are needed in order to enroll a proximity card manually. This information can be
obtained from the purchaser of the HID cards.
NOTE: Use of the more info button [...] is optional and not required to generate a PIN or HID prox credential.
k Choose the HID Format (26, 34, 35, 37 bit or 37 bit with facility code)
k Enter the Facility Code (if that format has a facility code)
k Enter the Card Number
k The hexadecimal number corresponding to that Format, Facility Code, and Card Number will appear in the box. Clicking
OK will automatically transfer that number into the User Editor.
k A user can have one “primary” credential (PIN, prox card, mag stripe or barcode) as well as a secondary PIN credential if
they have dual credential rights.
NOTE: Two users cannot have the same PIN or card credential. This includes users in the Recycle Bin. If a credential is
“recycled,” the user who was previously using the credential must be completely removed from the database. (Including
from the Recycle Bin.)
5. If the new user has supervisor rights, choose the Supervisor Level in the corresponding box. Supervisor levels 1-9 may be
chosen; where 1 is the lowest level and 9 is the highest level. Supervisor rights are especially useful for programming locks
without the LockView software.
6. If the new user has Passage Mode rights, check the Passage Mode box next to the credential information being supplied.
Passage Mode allows the user to change the lock’s state (lock/unlock) by pressing “Enter” (at the lock) after the PIN or card
has been accepted and the unit is unlocked. Note: when in passage mode, the lock open time is disabled.
7. If the new user has Dual Credential rights, check Dual Credential next to the credential information being supplied and enter
the dual credential PIN
k Dual credential users are users that are required to present two credentials in order to gain access.
k Dual credential users must use a PIN after the primary credential.
k If the user has a PIN/PIN dual credential, the PIN numbers must be different. (Note: Primary and secondary PINs are NOT
interchangeable.)
8. If the new user will have day and time access restrictions or be a member of a group, select Time-Based Restrictions/Groups.
9. If the new user will be a group member, check the button adjacent to member of a group, then click the group name. For more
information on groups, go to page 21.

slots, LockView will automatically wrap a day. (Example: 11 p.m. Monday - 7 a.m. Tuesday.)
11. If the user is to have access to slave locks, select the slave(s) in the bottom left section of the User Editor under SlaveAccess.
The slave ID is made up of two digits located on the slave modules. The first digit corresponds to the position of DIP switch
7 (up=1 down=0). The second digit corresponds to the position of the HEX switch. For example, slave ID# 1C would have DIP
switch 7 in the up position and the hex switch pointing to C.
NOTE: If the user is to have slave access only, deselect “Access Main box.” This will give the user access to the slaves only,
the main tool box will not open.
12. Select OK when done.
