  1. Collect a $5 key deposit and drop it in the treasurer's drop box
  2. Make sure you have an unassigned key (fob or card) to use.
  3. Go to the keypad, and make sure it's at the ready screen. (i.e. not waiting for a PIN after a swipe, or otherwise distracted.)
  4. Enter the super-secret programming code, starting with * and finishing with #.
  5. Go to Add/Delete and hit # to select
  6. Select "Add by ID" and arrow up/down until you find an open slot (the serial on the bottom will show 00000:00000)
  7. Write the slot number down.
  8. Hit * to go back to the menu and select "Add by RF Learn"
  9. Tag units: 1 (if you have multiple people to add, do the entire procedure separately for them.)
  10. Close tag into RF area: Wave the unassigned key near the reader. It should pick it up.
  11. Close the tag into the RF area again, and it will show the key's serial number. Write it down.
  12. Now, hit # until you are at the main menu and select "User Settings"
  13. Access mode 3: Card and pin
  14. Careful! It just auto-advanced to the next slot. Back it up so you're working on the slot you just added someone to.
  15. Now, change PIN
  16. Let the new member enter their own PIN, 4 digits, don't press anything afterward.
  17. If it says Success!, you're done. Back out and try the new key.
  18. NOW GO ENTER IT INTO THE CRM. The slot number and the key number you wrote down, above.

Any failures, call.... whom? I'll volunteer: Nate B, 248-379-3614.

Data quality:

  • Slot 123, key 123
  • Bad entry -- that's not a valid key serial number.
  • Slot 123, key 123123
  • Bad entry -- Still not a valid key serial.
  • Slot 123, key 00123:00123
  • Bad entry -- highly unlikely that both parts of the key serial are identical to the slot number!
  • Slot 123, key 218:52181
  • Bad entry -- Looks like a valid serial, but format is nonstandard and may break exports.
  • Slot 123, key 00218-52181
  • Bad entry -- Looks like a valid serial, but format is nonstandard and may break exports.
  • Slot 123, key 00218 52181
  • Bad entry -- Looks like a valid serial, but format is nonstandard and may break exports.
  • Slot 123, key 00218:52181
