Assembly of the outdoor unit

The outdoor unit has to installed at a wall which is easily accessible for its users.

1st step: Push approximatly 10 cm of the LAN-cable through the rubber gasket for the conncection of the indoor unit and the outdoor unit. The rubber gasket has to be installed at the rear of the outdoor unit (see picture below – outer black part of the housing). To do so, a small cut has to be made on the gasket. Afterwards, the opening of the gasket should be sealed with acrylic again.

3.  User administration

It is possible to administer up to 2,500 mobile phones, portable transmitters or RFID media (the latter is only valid if you purchased the variant with a RFID module) with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0. If you wish to carry out additional administrative tasks besides adding and deleting users, you will need the SOREX management software. Please refer to chapter 7 for further information.

3.1     Pairing a new mobile phone

To pair a new mobile phone user, please follow steps 1 to 4:

1st step: Activating Bluetooth

Turn the Bluetooth on your mobile phone on and set the Bluetooth to permanently visible in the phone’s settings. For further details on how to set the Bluetooth of your mobile phone to permanently visible, please refer to the instruction manual of your device.

Please note: With some devices, it is necessary to remain in the Bluetooth settings and/or switch to the security mode.

2nd step: Hold the mobile phone for ca. 10 seconds close to the module.

After activating your Bluetooth, hold your mobile phone for at least 10 seconds close to the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 outdoor unit. The mobile phone should touch the outdoor unit. Observe the display of your mobile phone. After approximately 10 seconds, you should receive a request to connect with “add.SOREX-w.Key”. Depending on your device, you have to press “OK” to accept the connection.

3rd step: Entering the Tür-PIN of the door

You will now be asked to enter the PIN-number for the connection with “add.SOREX-w.Key”. You can find the 10-digit Tür-PIN for the door among the delivered articles.

Figure 8: Exemplary Tür-PIN-sticker

Figure 8: Exemplary Tür-PIN-sticker

Now enter the door Tür-PIN into the appropriate field on your mobile phone and press enter. Now your mobile phone and the “add.SOREX-w.Key” are paired and the “add.SOREX-w.Key” will be visible in the list of paired devices. Please do not delete the “add.SOREX-w.Key”, as this is necessary to use the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0!

Please note: If you use an iPhone, the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 may appear as “Headset” on your phone instead of “add.SOREX-w.Key” / “del.SOREX-w.Key”.

Please store this sticker carefully! It is needed ifyou want to add another user to the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0. module!

4th step: Finishing the set-up

You can now open the door, which is connected with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0, with your mobile phone.

Some devices ask to connect automatically. This has to be confirmed positively.

Please note: For both Android and iOS smartphones there is a SOREX app (“SOREX Door Opener”) available. With this app, access is simplified as you can put your Bluetooth to visible with only one click.

3.2     Deleting a mobile phone

If you want to withdraw the access from one mobile phone, you have to delete it. Please follow steps 1 to 4:

1st step: Activate Bluetooth  

Activate the Bluetooth on your device and set it to visible. For more details, please refer to the instruction manual of your device.

Attention: With some devices, it is necessary to remain in the Bluetooth settings and/or switch to the security mode.

2nd step: Hold mobile phone for ca. 30 seconds to outdoor unit

Please hold the mobile phone for approximately 30 seconds directly to the outdoor unit of the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 (without distance). The mobile phone should touch the outdoor unit. If the device has access to this SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 unit, you will see a new connection with “del.SOREX-w.Key” after 30 seconds. Depending on your device, you have to press enter on your mobile phone to accept the connection.

3rd step: Entering door code

Now enter the delete code, which is “1234”, on your mobile phone. This code is the same for any SOREX wirelessKey 4.0. The delete code can also be found among the delivered stickers. After entering and confirming the code, “del.SOREX-w.Key” will be added to the list of paired devices. You will hear four acoustic tones after successfully carrying out the deletion process.

4th step: Finishing the deletion process

Now delete the “add.SOREX-w.Key” and the “del.SOREX-w.Key” from your list of paired devices. There is no further influence on the door access if the above-mentioned entries are not deleted. However, if you want to add the mobile phone again, there may occur problems if “add.SOREX-w.Key” and “del.SOREX-w.Key” have not been removed from the list of paired devices.

Please note: If you use an iPhone, the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 may appear as “Headset” on your phone instead of “add.SOREX-w.Key” / “del.SOREX-w.Key”.

3.3     Advice for repeated adding/removing of a mobile phone

If you wish to add a mobile phone, which has already been connected with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 before, you first have to delete “add.SOREX-w.Key” from your list of paired devices. Otherwise, it is not possible to pair this device again with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0.

The same applies if you want to stop a mobile phone from using the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0.

Please note: Between the deleting and adding processes, the Bluetooth menu item has to be closed!

Please note: If the pairing repeatedly fails, the reason for this can be that the list of paired advices is full. We recommend removing some items or deleting the whole list on your device.

3.4     Administering RFID media and/or portable transmitters

To add RFID cards, RFID key chains or portable transmitters to the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 the SOREX management software is necessary. For more details on how to administer the RFID media and the portable transmitter, please refer to the instruction manual of the SOREX management software.

4.  Opening process

To open your doors with your mobile phone, the following points have to be taken into consideration:

1.    Your mobile phone has to be paired with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 (please refer to chapter 3.1 for further information).

Please note: If the touch function on the outdoor unit is deactivated, no additional confirmation to open the door is necessary.

2.    Bluetooth on your mobile phone has to be switched on and set to “visible”.

Please note: With some devices, it is necessary to remain in the Bluetooth settings and/or switch to the security mode.

Tip: You can download our app “SOREX Bluetooth Door opener” to your phone via your app store. By clicking on the app, your Bluetooth is automatically activated and set to visible.

3.    As soon as you reach the detection range, your phone is recognized by the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0.

4.    Depending on the settings, the door opens as soon as you enter the detection range, or after touching the button on the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 module.

5.  Settings

5.1     Default setting

The following factory settings apply, when the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 is delivered:

5.2     Changing settings

Changes in the settings of the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 can only be made with the SOREX management software.

5.2.1   Setting the detection range

Changes in the setting of the detection range between the mobile phone and the wirelessKey 4.0 outdoor unit can be made with the SOREX management software or by changes on the two-pole dipswitch, which is set on the printed circuit board of the outdoor unit.

Setting changes, which are made via the two-pole dipswitch, apply to every mobile phone user.

Please refer to Figure 9 for the positions of the dipswitch and their implications on the detection range.

Please note: By using the SOREX management software to change the detection range, the settings of the dipswitches are overruled. In other words, the settings of the SOREX management software have priority to the settings of the dipswitches. Exception of this rule applies, when the module has been reset. In this case, the settings of the dipswitches apply.

6.  Reset

There are two possibilities to reset the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0. It is possible to reset the indoor as well as the outdoor unit.

6.1     Resetting the indoor unit

If the indoor unit is being reset, it will have the following effects on the IP address of the indoor unit:

-       After resetting the indoor unit, the DHCP is activated

-       If the indoor unit is connected with a network, then the indoor unit will receive a dynamic IP-address.

-       In any other cases, e.g. the indoor unit is directly connected to the PC or not connected anywhere, the indoor unit will receive the IP-address 169.254.254.254.

Figure 10: Reset button and LEDs - indoor unit

Please note: If the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 is used together with the SOREX management software, it is necessary to configure a new IP-address after resetting the device.

6.2     Resetting the outdoor unit

Please note: After resetting the outdoor unit, all users, all doors and all settings will be deleted. Moreover, the login of the SOREX management software is deleted. The IP-address remains the same.

The SOREX management software is used for administering users and doors. It is an additional product, which can be used together with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 and it can be purchased at the SOREX wireless Solutions GmbH. In the following paragraphs, only the key information for setting up the SOREX management software in combination with the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 will be explained.

7.1     Compatibility of the SOREX wirelessKey modules and the SOREX management software

The SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 is compatible with the SOREX management software 4.1. The modules of SOREX wirelessKey 2.0 are compatible with older versions of the SOREX management software as well as with the SOREX management software 4.1.

7.2     Controlling the SOREX wirelessKey module through a network

If you want to control the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 through a network, connect the device using a LAN-cable with the network before supplying the device with voltage (optionally available: WLAN extension).

Figure 12: LAN socket of the indoor unit, used for the connection to a network

Figure 12: LAN socket of the indoor unit, used for the connection to a network

The SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 receives a dynamical IP-address from the DHCP. Now you have to find the IP-address of the device in your network. We suggest using the software “Angry IP Scanner”, which can be downloaded for free.

The final steps to configure the SOREX wirelessKey 4.0 module are:

1st step: Start the application “Angry IP Scanner”, follow the settings visible in Figure 13 and start the scan of your network.

Figure 13: Configuration of Angry IP
