How to use evolo smart

To successfully program an evolo smart door component, the following is required:

  • User media with QR code
  • Master B programming card
  • A smartphone (for requirements, see here)


Installing and setting up apps:

1. Setting up the dormakaba evolo smart app

  • Download and install the dormakaba evolo smart app from the store.
  • Register the app with your email address.

2. Setting up the dormakaba mobile access app

  • Download the dormakaba mobile access app from the store and install it.
  • Register the app with the phone number.


Manage users:


1. Add physical medium:

  • Get the user media ready. Press this button to switch on the smartphone’s camera in the app. Scan the user medium’s QR code.
  • Once the medium has been registered, you can enter the corresponding user’s first name and surname.
  • Save this medium with "SAVE AND RETURN".

2. Adding a digital key:

  • If you click on an already purchased digital key in the list (if available), you can enter the corresponding user’s first name and surname. You can forward this digital key to this user using the "SAVE AND SEND AN INVITATION" button. 
  • Press the "SCAN A QR CODE" button to switch on the smartphone’s camera in the app. Capture a digital key’s QR code in the dormakaba mobile access app. Once the digital key has been registered, you can enter the corresponding user’s first name and surname.
  • Save this medium with "SAVE AND RETURN".

3. Edit users:

  • Briefly press the corresponding user. The editing window for the corresponding user opens.

4. Delete users:

  • Press the three dots to the right of the user and a “trash can” symbol appears. This completely removes the user from the list and all doors to which they are assigned. You will receive a message telling you which doors are affected and must explicitly confirm the deletion. This process cannot be undone. 
  • Note that the door components from which the user was removed must be reloaded.

 

Buying digital keys:

  • Press the "BUY DIGITAL KEYS" button to obtain a key package via the store’s in-app purchase mechanism. 
  • Select the desired key package and complete the purchase. 
  • If the purchase has been successfully completed, the digital keys appear in the list.


Programming:

1. Create a new door component:


  • Start the app and create a new door. 
  • Door identification to determine whether the "Access with Smartphone and mobile access app" or "Configuration of the door component via Bluetooth®" functionalities are supported. 
  • Door commissioning so that access with a smartphone and configuration of the door component via Bluetooth® are possible. 
  • Set up door names.

2. Create a time profile:


  • Select settings and, if desired, set  time restrictions.
  • Access is restricted to the selected weekdays from XX:XX to YY:YY o’clock.
  • Per door, several time restrictions can be configured (e.g. for employees, for cleaning staff)
  • In order for the time limit to become active, it must be granted to the user
  • The duration of the door components’ opening time as well as the signalling (buzzer) can also be set here.
  • With the compact reader 91 04, it is also possible to set the distance from which the reader can be operated.
  • Note that each change must be reloaded onto the door component.

3. Add users:


  • Select an existing user (if one exists) from the list. 
  • You can also search for and add a user using the QR code.
  • You can also open the user administration window and create new users directly there.
  • If you have added a user and select them, you can use the time limit to specify whether this user should have constant access or only limited access.
  • Please note that each change must be reloaded to the door component.

4. Load the configuration into the door component:


  • Get the programming card ready. Press this button to start programming.
  • Now hold the programming card against the door component. A short beep and a green light indicate that the component is ready for programming.
  • Now hold the smartphone against the door component (Note for NFC: the smartphone's NFC antenna is usually located in the middle of the device’s rear panel; if necessary, check the smartphone's manual).
  • Successful programming is confirmed by a short signal from the smartphone (time is synchronised with the smartphone).
  • After approx. 5 seconds, the door component also completes the programming. This is confirmed by a green light.


Check the door component’s status:


  • Press this button to see the door component’s status displayed in the app.
  • After pressing this button, hold the smartphone against the door component.
  • The smartphone confirms the readout with a short signal and displays the desired data.
  • It also shows you whether the "access with smartphone and mobile access app" or "Configuration of the door component via Bluetooth®" functionalities are supported.
  • To access the main menu, press the arrow at the top left.


Change time profile:


  • Press this button to change time slots and door settings at any time.
  • Please note that each change must be reloaded to the door component.


Activate digital key in the dormakaba mobile access app:

  • If you have purchased a digital key and assigned it to a person, you can send it with "SAVE AND SEND AN INVITATION" via the smartphone (e.g. by e-mail, SMS) to the person who is to receive access with the mobile access app.
  • The person receives instructions on how to activate the digital key.
  • The mobile access app must be installed and registered. The digital key is requested by clicking on the link.
  • After completion, the digital key appears in the mobile access app under Menu -> digital Keys
  • To open a door with the mobile access app, press the button and hold the smartphone near to the door component.


Operating the compact reader from a greater distance

  • This option is only available for the compact reader 91 04, which has an external power supply. 
  • If you activate this setting, you can use your smartphone to operate the door component from a slightly greater distance. Depending on your smartphone and the environment, this distance can range from a few centimetres to one metre.
  • Bluetooth® must be activated on the smartphone for this purpose.
  • Experience has shown that the range of iPhones is greater than that of Android smartphones.
  • Make sure that no other evolo door components are operated with evolo smart within a few metres of this compact reader for which this setting has been made, so as not to interfere.
  • To ensure the door can be opened successfully using the dormakaba mobile access app, make sure that within a few metres of the compact reader there are no other people who have installed either this app or the evolo smart app.
