Why does my Access Level for a tenant keeps changing to the incorrect number in StorLogix after I set it to the correct value?

If your tenant Access Level keeps changing to the incorrect number after correcting it in StorLogix, it is likely set incorrectly in your Facility Management/Accounting Software.  The setting in that software will overwrite what is in StorLogix when it sends data over about that tenant.

I need my Serial number to register StorLogix. Where is it located?

You can find the Serial number on your sales order.   If it is not there for some, tech support will need the sales order number to generate a Serial Number for you.

Why does my tenant get an invalid access code message when they attempt to enroll in EasyCode?

Make sure to verify the last name and access code in the StorLogix program.   Sometimes if there is an addendum to the last name, such as Jr., that will get sent as part of the last name field and sometimes not depending on the accounting program.   Also, having the first digit of an access code as 0 can cause issues, so we do not recommend starting an access code with the number 0.

What does it mean when my keypad reads “Not in Service”?

This indicates a communication issue between the keypad and the Falcon XT controller on the RS-485 network. This error usually indicates a power or wiring issue. You will need to contact your installer or one of the PTI partners to correct the hardware issue.

What does COMM ERROR mean?

This indicates a “COMMunication ERROR” of the Falcon XT controller on the RS-485 network talking to a device like a keypad or card scanner. This error usually indicates a power or wiring issue. You will need to contact your installer or one of the PTI partners to correct the hardware issue.

What is the “best” way to connect to my Falcon XT?

There are four ways to communicate to your Falcon XT gate controller, USB, Ethernet, Serial, and through the Cloud. The Cloud, USB, and Ethernet are the most reliable connection types. A serial connection requires a special cable purchased from PTI.

I am replacing my keypad with a new one. Do I need to do anything to the new keypad to make it work?

The keypad will need to be properly addressed so that it is identical to the keypad that is being replaced. Follow these steps:

  1. Press the *, 0, and # keys on the keypad at the same time. If performed correctly, the keypad will prompt you to enter a setup code. Enter 8898, then press #.
  2. Use the # key to toggle through the menu options until you see the option for device address. Use the touchpad to enter the desired device address, then press #.
  3. The next screen will show the device’s current RS485 baud rate. The default setting is 9600, as most sites are configured for this baud rate.
  4. Continue to press the # key until you get back to the main screen of the keypad.
Why do I get the message “We’re sorry this unit has been tampered with” when entering a code?

The device has been tampered with or opened by an individual. The device’s optical tamper could be dirty and requires cleaning. External factors such as rain and condensation inside the keypad’s housing causing the keypad’s optical tamper sensor to be triggered.

We recommend taking the following steps to temporarily disable the tamper feature in your keypad until the device can be checked by a PTI partner for damage or sealant issues.

  1. At the keypad displaying the tamper message, hit the *,0, and # keys at the same time.
  2. Enter the setup password of 8898 when prompted, then use the # key to progress through the menu.
  3. When you reach the message “Tamper Sensor is:” use the * key to toggle the status to DISABLED.
  4. Use the # key to progress through the remaining menu options until the keypad returns to the normal time and date.
How do I change the site name on my Apex keypad?

There are two places in the StorLogix software where the site name appears. The first is under Setup > Company Info. The second is under Setup > Falcon XT Setup. The site name in the Falcon XT Setup is the one that is sent to the Falcon XT for display in the keypads.

Why won't my gate close?

First, check under Tools and Open Door/Gate to make sure the gate is not being held open by the software. This is most likely a hardware failure that will require troubleshooting with test equipment to resolve. The best option for the site is to call a local gate technician to check the gate operator, vend input, vend wiring, and PTI vend relay to that gate. The PTI System only sends a command to open the gate. Once the gate is open, it is on an internal timer within the gate operator to close. The gate should close itself. The cause of the failure to close could be one or more of the following: Malfunctioning Gate Operator (machinery outside that drives the gate, shorted vend wiring in the conduit, or Shorted relay on the PTI System.
