Assa Abloy IN120/IN220 Setup
Updated this week

Verkada supports an integration with Assa Abloy IN120 & IN220 locks. The following guide will show you how to add these locks to Command.

Differences between IN120 & IN220

IN120: The IN120 lock is a daily polling lock that updates its configuration once a day. The lock is powered via Alkaline AA batteries. The lock communicates with the DSR over WiFi. With the IN120:

  • Events will sync once a day automatically

  • Events can be synced manually by pressing the Comm button on the lock (with the battery cover off).

IN220: The IN220 is a real-time online lock powered via PoE (802.3af) that communicates with the DSR over Ethernet. The IN220 supports the following features:

  • Live events

  • Remote unlock

  • Scheduled override

What you need

  • Assa Abloy IN120 or IN220 Lock.

  • Windows Machine (server) running Windows 7 and above with administrative permissions.

  • Assa Abloy DSR (Door Service Router) software installed on a Windows machine.

  • Assa Abloy LCT (Lock Configuration Tool) software installed on a portable machine Windows machine, as the locks need to be connected via a Mini USB to USB-C cable.

Note: The LCT does not need to run on the same Windows machine as the DSR.

Setup

Configure the IN120/IN220 with the LCT and setup the DSR according to the Assa Abloy IN120/220 Install Guide and other applicable Assa Abloy's documentation.

Note: Contact Assa Abloy Support if you encounter issues during the installation of these tools.

LCT

Ensure the lock is configured in Persona Mode for full functionality. If it is not configured in Persona Mode, features such as double badging may not behave as intended.

DSR

In the WS Security & Port Configuration section of the DSR Support Tool, turn off WS Encryption so that the daemon and DSR can connect.

Note: After the profile has been configured on the lock, it should reach out and connect to the DSR. If you are pairing an IN120 and it does not automatically connect, try pressing the Comm button on the lock (with the battery cover off).


Add a DSR in Command

Required: The DSR Connector must be installed on the same system that the DSR is installed on.

  1. In Verkada Command, go to All Products > Access.

  2. On the left navigation, click Access Settings .

  3. Select a site from the dropdown menu.

  4. Select Door Service Routers.

  5. In the top right, click Add Door Service Router.

    1. Give the DSR a unique name.

    2. Click Create.

  6. Click Next to continue the configuration.

  7. Download the DSR Connector that matches your environment.

    The default DSR Connector's file name is 'daemon.exe'.
  8. Copy or download the 'config.yaml' file and add it to the same directory as the connector.

  9. Using a PowerShell admin account, run the following commands in the same directory as the DSR Connector:

    chdir <path to DSR Connector directory> 
    .\daemon.exe -s install
    .\daemon.exe -s start
  10. Click Done when finished.

If everything has been done correctly, we should see a green checkmark to the right of the newly configured DSR's name that indicates that it has synced with Command. You can check to ensure the Verkada Connector service runs by going to Services on the Windows machine.

Recommended. Verify recovery is enabled on the Verkada Connector service.

Door configurations

  • Exceptions are currently not supported on the IN120 & IN220.

  • Privacy Mode allows an occupant of a room to lock the door and restrict access to other users except for users in the assigned ac Industrial more questions the default DSR file is named this access group.

Enable Privacy Mode

The IN120 & IN220 lockset is normally secure. The inside lever always allows free egress. To enable privacy mode, engage the deadbolt.
