Frequently asked questions

Functionality

How does the keypad open a door or gate?

There are three ways to open a keypad-controlled door or gate: via the ButterflyMX mobile app, a keyfob, or with a PIN code.

How do I enter a keypad door with a pin code?

The keypad accepts 6-digit PIN codes, which you can create in the mobile app or by logging into your account on the ButterflyMX OS.

To open a door via the keypad, enter in the correct 6-digit PIN code and press the check mark. The keypad will make a “ka-ching” sound and numbers will turn green for the duration of the time the door is open.

Note: You do not need to enter a unit number prior to entering a PIN.

How do I enter a keypad door with the mobile app?

Exactly the same as the intercoms, open the ButterflyMX app and swipe the button from left to right to open the door. The keypad will make a “ka-ching” success sound and numbers will turn green for the duration of the time the door is open.

What do the colors and the sounds on the keypad mean?

See the table below for a breakdown of the keypad statuses!

 

Status Interaction

  3. Duration of the door being unlocked after opening: default of 15 seconds

How many doors can the keypad open?

How do virtual keys work on the keypad?
