When can the device manager app make a connection?

- When the device is out of the box. There is a default key. The device manager app can access with the private key entered by the device admin password. Once the connection is made, the key value of the device default key is changed to the entered private key values.

- Simply, when the device is already in use status. The device manager app cannot make a connection with the default key. It is checked by whether or not the device has RS485 key received from a master device, or the device has a changed Wiegand output setting.

- In order to return to the default key, the device needs a factory restore by pressing a reset button on the back for four times consecutively. Then, the device will remove all the previous connection and return the default key. For the security side, since the device will become disconnected and occur tamper event, administrators will need to check the necessity measures after checking the situation.
