Blocking a Key

This section describes how to block a key on iLOQ Manager. This function is used to prevent a key from accessing the locks.


To block a Phone Key from accessing the locks, it is usually sufficient enough to empty and return the key. See Returning and Emptying a Phone Key. Only in cases when this function cannot be completed, it may be necessary to block the Phone Key with the blocking function. The administrator also has the possibility to use offline expiration time to control the key validity. See Key Offline Expiration Time.

Adding a key to the blocked list is a possible without the Programming Token, but removing keys from the blocked list always requires the Programming Token, for security purposes.

Proceed as follows to add a key to the blocked list.

  1. Select Basic data > Browse blacklist.

  2. Select Add to blacklist.

    The Add to blacklist wizard is opened.

  3. Select Add a key to the blacklist.
  4. Select the key that you want to add to the blacklist.
  5. Select Next.
  6. Select how to proceed with the locks affected.

    The options are:

    • Leave in planning state — Select Leave in planning state if you want to leave the blacklist in the planning state, and order it later. After this, the blacklist status will be In planning.


      So far, you have just added the key to the black list, but the new blacklist version has not been sent to the keys, which will spread the list over to the locks. When you want to send the new blacklist version to the keys, see Ordering a Blacklist.

    • Order blacklist — Select Order blacklist if you want to order the blacklist from the server and send it to Phone Keys. After this, the blacklist status will be Ordered.

  7. Select Next.
  8. A summary screen is shown.
  9. Select Ready.
  10. Select Close.
