Luckey F9000 Mechatronic Keys

In Standard type plants, it is possible to enable an additional function that allows you to manage the ISEO F9000 mechatronic keys.

The F9000 key is a mechatronic key capable of interacting with F9000 compatible cylinders and provides a user experience similar to the mechanical key, in fact once programmed, the key can be used on all compatible mechanical cylinders in an easy and intuitive way.

The Mechatronic cylinders

The F9000 mechatronic cylinder requires no wiring and has no battery. For this reason, it is full-size compatible with any mechanical cylinder, and can be easily installed in place of a purely mechanical cylinder. The cylinder meets all the safety and flexibility requirements for complex master key systems since it has the highest resistance against perforation, tearing, extraction, and impact, in fact, they are certified IP66 according to the EN 15684: 2012 standard.

The F9000 Mechatronic Key

The F9000 mechatronic keys have a great shock and water-resistant polycarbonate casing that contains the system electronics, batteries, and a nickel-silver metal stem suitable for cylinders with protectors.

The F9000 key has a UID (Unique Identifier) laser engraved on the back of the body, which allows you to register the user key with the desired credentials in the Luckey software. As we will see in the following chapters, it will then be necessary to write the access authorizations on the key via the validator or via the Luckey mobile application to allow the user to open the selected Smart Locks.

Create an F9000 access credential

In order to use an F9000 key it is necessary to create an access credential of the F9000 type from the appropriate section of the Luckey web application.

From this section it will be possible to view all the keys already present in the system and the associated credentials, with the possibility of modifying and possibly deleting them from the system.

To create an F9000-type credential, similar to what we saw for the cards, the following data will be requested:

  • Key UID: the key (Unique Identifier) laser engraved on the back of the body of the key
  • Notes: free text notes to associate with the Key
  • Authorized user: the user to whom the Key will be assigned
  • Smart Locks: The list of doors that users will be able to open with the Key
  • Date interval, time slot, and days on which the credential will be active
  • Validation rules: frequency on which the user needs to validate its key again

Once an F9000-type credential has been created in the platform, it is necessary to pass the key from a validation point in order for the access credential to become effective.

See the related article Validate an F9000 key credential for more details on the validation process.

F9000 LED Signaling table

During normal use of the F9000 key, it emits light signals indicating the result of a certain operation, such as the opening of a cylinder or the validation of a key. Here we report a table with the main signs and their meanings.

LightsMeaning
1 GreenOpen allowed
3 RedOpen denied
1 RedBattery low
2 Red/Green + 1 GreenCylinder not programmmed
7 Red (fast)Key not programmed
Red/Green alternate 10 secondsKey in programming via app
1 Red/GreenOpen with battery low
1 RedDead battery, open failed
3 Red (fast)Low battery due to temperature

F9000 battery check

To check the battery status of your F9000 key it is necessary to click and hold down the side button of the key for 3 seconds. The LED located near the button will emit light signals based on the state of the battery. Here is a table that indicates the corresponding battery level for each signal.

LightsMeaning
1 GreenBattery Ok
1 Red – 1 GreenBattery low: replace the battery
1 RedDead battery
3 Red (fast)Low key temperature
