This FAQ describes how to add access credentials to 2N IP intercoms and Access Units. These scenarios can be used on following devices:

  • 2N IP Verso
  • 2N IP Vario
  • 2N IP Base
  • 2N IP Force
  • 2N IP Style
  • 2N Access Unit
  • 2N Access Unit 2.0

RFID card access

To add a new RFID card to the unit, you need to first find the ID of the card. Please put the card on the reader and then see the unit's log in Status -> Events. You will see the event "CardEntered", you need to see the "uid" parameter. Scroll to the right and copy it:

Now please go to Directory -> Users. You can either create a new user (1) or edit an existing one (2):

In User details, go to User Cards and paste the card ID here:

Now the RFID card access has been created.


Saving a new RFID card's ID can be also done with 2N USB RFID reader. A driver is needed for this device, more info is here. When the driver is installed, you can start scanning from the reader by clicking the button next to the field for Card ID.


Fingerprint access

To setup a fingerprint access, go to Directory -> Users -> select User -> User Fingerprints -> click on one of the highlighted buttons. Left one is for assignment via 2N External Fingerprint reader. Right one is for assignment via reader module mounted on a unit:

Now select the finger you want to use and click Scan Finger:

Now you need to scan it 3 times and save it:

Now you can choose what this fingerprint will be used for by clicking on the highlighted button:

By default, Open door option is selected. Silent Alarm option is for triggering a silent alarm when this finger is scanned. F1 and F2 Automation option is for use in Automation scenarios. After you set the correct function, click Save and Quit.

PIN code access

There are several ways of adding a PIN code access to the device:

1) The PIN code is associated with the respective Switch

In this case, when the correct PIN is entered, unit will not show which User activated the switch, it will just show that the correct PIN  was entered and the switch was activated. You can set this in Hardware -> Switches -> (for example) Switch 1 -> Activation Codes. You will also need to make sure that Keypad, DTMF or Keypad only option is active. After you enter the code, click Save:

2) The PIN code is associated with a User

In this case, using a PIN code will generate an Event in the unit that will inform which User's PIN code was used. In this scenario, each User has their own PIN code(s). To configure this, go to Directory -> Users -> select the User -> User Codes:

PIN Code option - this PIN code will activate a Switch that is associated with Door (in Hardware -> Switches). Good for scenarios where each User needs their own PIN code and they need to control just one Switch.

Switch codes - these codes are associated with respective Switch. User can control each Switch individually and those PIN codes are associated with this User only. The fields for codes here are greyed out if the respective Switch is not enabled. You can enable a Switch in Hardware -> Switches.

QR code

To be able to use QR codes for authentication, you need to first enable this function, you can do so in Services -> Access Control -> Entry rules -> QR code reading:

To create a new QR code credential, go to Directory -> Users -> select a User -> User Codes:

  • PIN Code - this QR code is associated with a Switch that is assigned to Door, in Hardware -> Switches section
  • Switch codes - these codes are associated with respective Switch

You can enter numeric code with at least 10 digits and then click the button with QR symbol next to the field for entering the code. This will show you a QR code representing the digits entered:

You can download the image with QR code with the first button. Generate button will generate a new code. Apply Code will close the window and fill in the field for the code with the last generated code.
