Access control setup example

Current access control setup example shows connected devices using Vutlan monitoring unit. Requiremenets are:

  • Setup user access using electronic keys and provide web-interface for use management.
  • Control door access using magnetic lock, bolt lock, electric latch or other.
  • Use push/exit button for controlling door exit access.
  • Use emergency (system independent) push/exit button for controlling door exit access in case of emergency.
  • Setup sound and light alarm beacon in case of alarm.
  • During non-working hours: in case of movement, breakage/vibration of the door/windows or door opening without permission, start sending video stream to an FTP server and SMS and E-mail notifications


Such a scenario can be accomplished using 'VT335 S / Monitoring unit' or other. Picture below explains the connections.

Access control diagram (RFID reader, cam

1. Install "VT10 / 1-Wire module". Connect VT107 / RFID reader to 1-Wire port.

2. Connect "USB100 / USB camera" camera to a USB port.

3. Optionally connect up to 4 IP cameras.

4. Connect VT570 / PIR sensor to one of the analog ports.

5. Connect "VT540 / Vibration sensors" and "VT530 / Access sensors" to analog ports of the monitoring system. These sensors are chainable and can be connected to each other. All sensors in one chain connection are seen by the system as one sensor.

6. Install push/exit button to dry contact inputs of the unit. nstallation instructions.

7. Connect bolt lock or magnetic lock or electric latch to "12V 0.25A" relay of the monitoring system. Read more: Connecting 12V devices to 12V outputs. In case the device requires different voltage or amperage, "VT11 / Dry contact out" can be used.

8. Connect "VT103 / Alarm beacon" or "VT105 / Strobe light" or a light tower to 12V 0.25A relay.

9. Connect emergency (system independent) push/exit button for controlling door exit access in case of emergency.

Configuration examples

All configurations are made from within the web interface of the system. Default IP is Default password: guest. Default login: guest.


Add user's electronic keys

VT107 / RFID reader is detected by the system automatically. The system will add "Access control" panel to the interface. Inside "Access control" panel You can now add RFID cards and apply user's name to each such electronic key.

Relay (magnetic lock) configuration (Access control Vutlan).jpg

Relay configuration (Lock control and alarm beacon)

In "System tree" menu of web-interface under "Power 12V 0.25A" section find the relay we are connecting the device to. By default Power-1 and Power-2. Rename it, set initial state and set Pulse duration time in seconds to 5s. for example.

Configure dry-contact input (push button) (Access control Vutlan).jpg

Dry contact inputs configuration (Exit button and window/door sensors)

In menu "Dry contacts" edit the dry contact input the Exit button is connected to. Rename it, choose type (changes the icon), choose current state.

Sensor configuration (temperature) (Access control Vutlan).jpg

Configure sensors (vibration, temperature, access, motion)

In "System tree" menu of web interface find and configure the sensors. Edit name, adjust threholds: low warning, warning, normal, high warning and high alarm.

Configure notifications

In the web-interface menu "System tree" press "+". Now You can add: E-mail notifications, SNMP trap, SMS notification, Web SMS notification, SMS Gate service, SNMP Get and other.

Setup logic for relay and reader (Access control Vutlan).jpg

Setup logic: RFID reader and relays

If "iButton" is normal (reads correct reading), then "Power-1" (lock) pulse. Previously we have setup pulse to 5 seconds.
