  2. From Organisation → Devices → Quick Action → Components → Tamper 1, enter a Maintenance PIN and save.

Note: Maintenance PIN "0000" will not be accepted by the keypad as a valid code.

To set a keypad ID:

  1. Enter *Maintenance PIN#Keypad ID[*] on the TAP TAP Keypad. 

For example *1234#5*

or

*1234#152

Note: The "Beep" count is limited to keypad ID's 1 to 10. 


TAP/TAPEX for MK II P/L

  • Intercom keypad and Channel A are by default TAP (Incoming) channels.
  • Channel B is by default TAPEX (outgoing) channel. 
  • The MKII Plus/Lite system generates a single 5 digit TAP code.
  • This code must first be used for entry before it can be used for exit.
  • If the resident requires only an exit code, the resident will use the word TAPX and the amount required in the SMS to the intercom.


FRX Relay

  • The FRX relay is located in the TAP TAP keypad housing.
  • Selecting this relay on Comb Portal Website disables the intercom relays.
  • The FRX relay will always be triggered if the PIN, TAP and TAPEX codes are entered on the TAP TAP keyboard. 
  • The FRX relay cannot be triggered by a DTMF, remote,CLI or PIN/TAP's entered on the intercom keypad.

To set the relay pulse time:

  1. Enter *Maintenance PIN#xxx

Where xxx = 300 to 330.

300 = 0.5 seconds

301 = 1 second
