Livi RFID security control panel manual

Description
The Livi RFID security control panel (hereafter referred to as the panel) is designed to identify users by reading and transmitting the RFID-tag code to the Livi Smart Hub (hereafter referred to as the hub).

The panel allows users to enable and disable the guard of the site without Livicom mobile app. The panel is equipped with sound and LED indication to confirm that user commands are executed.

Binding the panel to the hub
The panel must be unpacked and allowed to reach room temperature for at least two hours before handling if it was transported or stored at low temperatures.
Only the owner of the site can bind the panel to the hub. Make sure that the site guard is disabled and the hub is online before binding.
Follow these steps to bind the panel to the hub:

  1. Pull the protective film out of the battery compartment:
    • The panel will turn on (the panel indicator will blink red, green and blue in turn).
    • Then the panel will be automatically calibrated (the indicator will quickly blink white).
    • The panel will be switched to the binding mode for 60 seconds (the indicator blinks blue) after the calibration.

2. In the Livicom app, open the "Devices" screen. In the upper right corner of the screen tap "+" and select "Add Device".

The system compiles a list of radio devices available for binding within the range of the hub radio channel.

3. Select the panel from the list and check that its name and serial number in the app match the data on the panel enclosure.

4. Tap CONTINUE and follow on-screen instructions in the app to bind the panel to the hub.

The panel indicator will blink green 5 times after successful binding.

The panel switches to the binding mode only for 60 seconds. If you have not bound it to the hub within this period, remove the battery from the panel for 30 seconds, and reinstall it (observing polarity). The panel will switch to binding mode again.
RFID-tags could be assigned to users when the panel is binding to the hub.

Select a user from the list on the screen and tap "Add" to assign one of the RFID-tags.

Choosing a location for the panel
We recommend mounting the panel on a wall near the front door inside the guarded site.

DO NOT mount the panel:
  • outdoors;
  • in places with high humidity, or at temperatures exceeding the operating temperature range (see "Specifications" table).
  • close to sources of strong electromagnetic radiation (e.g. routers, antennas).
    Evaluating signal strength
    Check the quality of the connection between the panel and the hub at the intended location of the panel. There are two ways to evaluate the signal strength:

    1. In the Livicom app, on the panel settings screen.
    2. With the help of the LED indication on the panel. Double-click on the button (4) and look at the panel indicator. Interpret the indication using the table below.
    Good signal The indicator blinks green 3 times
    Average signal The indicator blinks green twice
    Poor signal The indicator blinks green once
    No connection The indicator blinks red 4 times
    Panel installation
    1. Fasten the mounting bracket (6) on a wall at the selected location, using the supplied mounting kit.
    2. Mount the panel on the bracket: align tabs on the bracket with holes in the panel.
    3. Pull the panel slightly down until you hear a click, confirming that the panel is secured on the bracket.
    4. Tighten the retaining screw (9).

    The panel will be automatically calibrated 60 seconds after it is mounted on the bracket (after the panel tamper is closed). The panel indicator will quickly blink white during calibration. Wait until the calibration is fully complete and then check the operation of the panel.
    RFID-tags assignment
    Individual RFID-tags allow users identifying themselves, when they enable or disable the full guard of the site.

    The night guard of the site is enabled and disabled without RFID-tags.

    The full guard can also be enabled without RFID-tags, but users must use their individual RFID-tags to disable the full guard (to confirm that they have the right to enter the site). Users will be allowed to enable the full guard without RFID-tags only if a setting "Enable full guard with RFID-tag" is turned off in the Livicom app. The site owner can turn on this setting if users would like to see in the Livicom app who enables the guard.
    Attention

    Livi Tag RFID-tags, which are included in the supply set, are not assigned to the panel
    RFID-tags should be assigned to users in the Livicom app before the first use. One user can have only one individual RFID-tag and one RFID-tag can be assigned only to one user.

    1. Open a user profile in the Livicom app, go to the "Access and RFID-tags" screen and tap "Add" to assign an RFID-tag.
    2. Then on the panel press the Full guard disabling button (4) (to switch the panel into the reading mode) and hold the RFID-tag near the center of the panel.
    3. Follow on-screen instructions in the app.

    Getting started with standard ISO 15693 RFID-tags
    Attention

    The panel does not support simultaneous operation with ISO 15693 and ISO 14443A RFID-tags
    If you have already assigned to users Livi Tag RFID-tags, which are included in the supply set, then to get started with standard ISO 15693 RFID-tags follow these steps:

    1. Delete all assigned RFID tags (see "Deleting the RFID-tag").
    2. Delete the panel from the hub (see "Panel deleting").
    3. Bind the panel to the hub again.
    4. Assign to users only ISO 15693 RFID-tags.
    Site guard enabling and disabling
    Press the Full guard enabling button (1) on the panel and hold the individual RFID-tag near the center of the panel to enable the full guard of the site. The guard is enabled when you hear 1 short beep and see that the panel indicator blinks green once.

    If a setting "Enable full guard with RFID-tag" is turned off on the panel settings screen in the Livicom app, then you can just press the Full guard enabling button (1) on the panel and the full guard will be enabled.

    The Livicom system checks statuses of all security sensors when it is enabling the guard. If the system fails to switch some sensors into the guarding mode, then the panel indicator will blink yellow 3 times and the guard of the site won't be enabled. If you want to enable the full guard with the exception of some sensors (for example, if you intentionally left the window open for ventilation), then make two more attempts to enable the full guard. On the third attempt the site's full guard will be enabled, but some sensors will not perform guarding functions.

    Press the Full guard disabling button (4) on the panel and hold the individual RFID-tag near the center of the panel to disable the full guard of the site. The guard is disabled when you hear 2 short beeps and see that the panel indicator blinks green twice.

    Press the Night guard enabling button (2) on the panel to enable the night guard of the site. The night guard is enabled when you hear 1 short beep and see that the indicator (5) blinks blue once.

    Press the Night guard disabling button (3) on the panel to disable the night guard of the site. The night guard is disabled when you hear 2 short beeps and see that the indicator (5) blinks blue twice.
    Delay for entry / exit
    Delay for entry / exit can be activated if the panel is installed inside the guarded site.

    Delay for entry / exit let users:

    1. Leave the site after the Full guard enabling button is pressed on the panel. Security sensors will switch to the guarding mode when the delay period expires.
    2. Enter the guarded site, reach the panel and disable the full guard. An alarm alert will be sent after the delay period expires.

    Duration of the delay for entry / exit can be set by the site owner in the Livicom app on the panel settings screen.

    Duration of the delay for entry / exit can be set by the site owner in the Livicom app on the panel settings screen. If the system fails to switch some sensors into the guarding mode, then the panel indicator will blink yellow 3 times and the guard of the site won't be enabled. If you want to enable the full guard with the exception of some sensors, then make two more attempts to enable the full guard. On the third attempt the site's full guard will be enabled, but some sensors will not perform guarding functions.

    An entrance area is a part of the guarded site which users should cross to reach the panel after entering the site. The delay for entry will be applied only to those sensors that are located in the entrance area; all other sensors in the site will remain in guarding mode.

    Sensors can be added to the entrance area by the site owner in the Livicom app on sensor settings screens. If the front door of the site is secured with a Livi CS opening sensor, then the site owner can turn on the setting "Installed on the front door" in the Livicom app on the sensor settings screen.
    Power saving mode
    By default the panel operates in a power saving mode in order to extend battery life. Disable the saving mode if you want to expand the panel indication:

    1. In case of alarm the panel will indicate the alarm (see "LED and sound indication").
    2. During the delay for entry the panel will beep once every 2 seconds and the indicator will blink red once every 2 seconds.

    The power saving mode can be disabled by the site owner in the Livicom app on the panel settings screen.

        Operational parameters
        • Radio signal strength between the sensor and the hub (no connection / poor / average / good):
        If there is no connection with the hub, check whether the hub is turned on. If the hub is off, turn the hub on and again check the signal strength on the panel settings screen.
        Check whether there are any objects obstructing radio signal (for example, metal objects or mirrors) between the hub and the panel. Change the panel installation location so that radio signal could pass between devices without obstructions.
        Check that the panel is installed within radio signal range of the hub. If the panel is installed too far from the hub, move it to a new place where connection between the panel and the hub will be restored.
        The location of the hub also affects the signal strength. In some cases even a slight displacement of the hub or even its rotation gives a significant improvement in a quality of its communication with devices.

        • Battery status (OK / low battery).
        If the battery runs out, you will receive the push notification. The notification will also be displayed in the event log in the app and on the sensor settings screen.

        • Enclosure status (open / closed).
        Operational settings
        Only the owner of the site can change settings for the panel. Make sure that the site guard is disabled and the hub is online if you are going to change the panel settings.
        The panel settings screen displays the following settings:

        • Power saving mode - by default the panel operates in a power saving mode in order to extend battery life. Disable the saving mode if you want to expand the panel indication:
          • During the delay for entry the panel will beep once every 2 seconds and the indicator will blink red once every 2 seconds.

        • Enable full guard with RFID-tag - slide the switch to the left to let users enable the full guard without RFID-tags. Slide the switch to the right if you would like to see in the Livicom app who enables the full guard.

        • Delay for entry / exit - slide the switch to the right if the panel is mounted inside the guarded site.
        Maintenance
        Keep the panel free of dust and dirt. Replace the battery as soon as possible after you receive a low battery notification in the Livicom app.
        Attention

        Do not wipe the panel with substances containing alcohol, acetone, gasoline and other active solvents
        Deleting the RFID-tag
        The site owner can delete an assigned RFID-tag in the Livicom app.

        Open a profile of the user, to whom the RFID-tag was assigned, to delete the tag. Go to the "Access and RFID-tags" screen and tap in the "RFID-tag" line. In a pop-up window confirm that the RFID-tag should be deleted.
