Frequently asked questions

Functionality

How does a keypad door open?

There are two ways to open a keypad-controlled door: via the ButterflyMX app, and 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
Turned On White numbers, red cancel icon, green accept icon
Number Tapped Brightened screen and “tap” sound
Successful PIN Entry Two note ascending bell sound, green for the duration of the time the door is open
Timeout / Clear Flash white with two note bell “dun-dun”
Incorrect Pin Flash red with two note bell “dun-dun”

Can I change the timings on the keypad?

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

How many doors can the keypad open?

Camera

Can the camera accept virtual key QR codes?

Can the camera live stream? Does it work with video calls?

Does the camera take photos?

Yes, the camera will take photos either when the mobile app or a PIN is used at the keypad.

Virtual keys

How do virtual keys work on the keypad?

Note: QR codes are not accepted on keypads.

Can I turn off resident access to the keypad?
