S&G Biometric Electronic Lock

Programming and Operating Instructions for the S&G Biometric Keypad

The Sargent & Greenleaf Biometric Keypad can be added to S&G electronic lock models 6120, 6123, and Z02 (model designation Z02 represents models 2002-200 and 2002-300). The keypad enables your lock to be opened using a fingerprint only, a code only, or a fingerprint and code together.

•The silicon-based active capacitive fingerprint reader represents superior biometric technology that combines high reliability with the ability to reject devices and methods which are sometimes used to fool optical-type readers.
•The Biometric Keypad is equipped with a backlit LCD readout, offering two lines of text. The backlight feature can be turned on or off at the keypad. Its use greatly increases readability under marginal lighting conditions.
•The keypad houses two nine-volt alkaline batteries which power both the keypad and the lock. Normal battery life is approximately 1500 openings and closings of the lock, fewer if the backlight feature is turned on. Batteries are easily replaced from outside the safe. No data is lost during battery changing or if power is lost for extended periods.
•When a Biometric Keypad is first connected to a lock body, it is important that both components are set to factory defaults. Both should be in single user mode, with only a master code of 123456 installed. No other codes should be present, and the time delay value should be zero.
•This Sargent & Greenleaf® Biometric Keypad is shipped from the factory with a factory master code of 1 2 3 4 5 6 #. This code can be used to open the lock and set or change codes. You should set the lock to your own, unique master code.
•Your lock can be programmed with a management reset code if one was not set at the factory. This code can be used to regain control of the lock in the event the master code is lost. The management reset  code must be programmed into the lock before the master code is changed for the first time.
•Each time a button is pressed, the lock acknowledges it by sounding a “beep,” and the red LED on the keypad will light momentarily as the “beep” sounds.
•All codes must contain six digits or six letters. Any digit or letter can be used as many times as you wish. All codes end with #. This signals the lock that you have finished entering all digits of the code.
•If you pause more than 10 seconds between button presses when entering a code or performing programming, the lock will power down to conserve battery life. You will have to begin the code entry process again by pressing START.
•If you realize you have pressed an incorrect button when entering a code, press ✽  to erase the last digit entry.
•Personal data which can be directly related to a code holder, such as a birth date, should not be used in making up a lock code. Avoid codes which can be easily guessed.
•After the lock is changed to a new code, lock function must be checked by locking and unlocking it several times with the container door open. Make sure it functions correctly before closing the door.
•It is recommended the fingerprint sensor be cleaned periodically with a clean, dry cloth.  The keypad will operate best with no debris or latent fingerprints on the sensor.
