Formatting and Programming New Locks in the Lock View

This section describes how to format and program new locks in iLOQ Manager.

When a new lock cylinder is delivered from the factory, it is in the factory state. Before it can be programmed, it must first be formatted. After this procedure, the lock cylinder can be managed in the deployed locking system only.

This is the usual way of adding new locks. However, you can also add lock through the floor plan. See Adding a New Lock onto the Floor Plan.
