A cost effective wireless lock solution

With Aurora Software

The E-Plex 7900 wireless model integrates with Keyscan Aurora software using a ZigBee wireless network, which creates a twoway communication from lock to Aurora software. This allows installation of up to 25 locks per gateway and 2 router hops to a maximum of 100 E-Plex 7900 wireless locks per gateway on any system running Keyscan Aurora version 1.0.15 or later. E-Plex 7900 also function on networks utilizing other E-Plex wireless lock models using the same credentials.


Each lock can be offline programmed with the same data from Keyscan Aurora OR LUNA software. The data is then uploaded to each lock using a handheld M-Unit. (NOTE: this requires LUNA 2.0 or Aurora version 1.0.22 or later).


With Enterprise Software

The E-Plex 7900 wireless model integrates with dormakaba Enterprise software using a ZigBee wireless network, which creates a two-way communication from lock to Enterprise software. E-Plex 7900 can also function on networks utilizing other E-Plex wireless locks using the same credentials.

  • Requires Enterprise Version 4.2 or higher.
  • Requires Gateway firmware V 2.0.78 or higher. Existing Gateways can be updated over the air with gateway firmware V.2.0.76 or higher (older versions may require factory update)
  • Requires optional command card set based upon lock card technology for programming. (Retain for future programming)

Typical E-Plex 7900 offline or wireless application
