Using Your Key Card
The Onity card key system has several codes that will indicate the status of the lock when a card is inserted and removed. There are only two lights on the lock— a red LED and a green LED. Singly or in combination the lights can help diagnose a lock or explain why a card is not accepted.
Below is a guide to help you understand the light codes.
|Solid green light, no red light|

(Door unlocks for four seconds or until the handle is turned)
|Solid red light, no green light|

(Card expired, card not valid for door)
|Red light appears 6 seconds after card is removed, no green light|
Unreadable card inserted.
(Card is blank, damaged or inserted incorrectly)
|Solid green and red lights|
