BIOMETRIC SCANNER

MX SERIES

How to program fingerprints?

1) Open the safe. Program the 1st fingerprint by pressing and holding the ‘2’ key and “PROGRAM” together for 3 seconds until the screen prompts you to scan the 1st of five scans.

TIP: If all keys are blinking RED and the fingerprint crosshairs turn solid RED then refer to the programming fingerprints 3-20 below.

2) Using the “Programming Fingerprints TIPS” provided below place your finger on the fingerprint scanner for the 1st of five scans. When the safe beeps and the ‘1’ key lights up GREEN remove your finger.

3) Place finger again over the scanner until the safe beeps and the ‘2’ key lights up GREEN and lift. You will repeat this process until all keys (1-5) are solid GREEN.

Programming Fingerprints TIPS

 1) Be sure your finger is flat against the scanner (parallel to safe) and your cuticle is over the center of the scanner (this allows the scanner to read where most of the fingerprint details are located).

 

2) Biometric technology is dependent on our anatomical information, and in some cases different fingers may program better than others.  For example, your index finger may not register very well, but your thumb may contain higher detail levels and have a much higher success rate.  We suggest to try different fingers including your thumb and see if you have better results.

3) During the 5 scan programming process for each finger, slightly repositioning your finger after each scan will store more information and increase your success rate.

How to program fingerprints (3-20)?

The first two fingerprints programmed into the safe are the administrative fingerprints. Any additional users programmed require authorization from one of these fingerprints.

1) Open the safe. Program the additional fingerprints by pressing and holding the ‘2’ and “PROGRAM” button together (3 seconds). When all keys (1-5) are blinking RED scan one of the administrative fingerprints.

2) Place one of the two programmed administrative fingerprints on the scanner and remove when the safe beeps and screen authorizes the print. You can enroll a NEW fingerprint.

TIP: If the administrative print is left on the scanner too long the safe will begin to program that fingerprint into the safe again and not the NEW fingerprint. If this happens start over with step one.

3) Using the “Helpful Programming TIPS” provided on this page place the NEW finger on the scanner. When the safe beeps and the screen prompts the next scan remove your finger.

How to delete fingerprints?

Individual fingerprints cannot be deleted from the keypad on the safe. Following this procedure will erase all the fingerprints including both administrative fingerprints. Individual fingerprints can be deleted from the Vaultek® app.

1) Press and hold the ‘3’ key then the “PROGRAM” button together until the safe beeps and the screen prompts you to enter your master code.

2) Enter your master code on the keypad. If the code is correct, the safe will beep and the screen will indicate deletion of all of the fingerprints.

Low success rate troubleshooting

First, delete the prints you have programmed in so far, and try again with the tips below:

Delete Tip! Press and hold keys ‘3’ and ‘5’ at same time until all keys light up red (takes about 3 seconds).  Let go of keys ‘3’ and ‘5’ and enter the master pin code. You’ve cleared the prints and ready to start fresh!  

1) Biometric technology is dependent on our anatomical information, and in some cases different fingers may program better than others.  For example, your index finger may not register very well, but your thumb may contain higher detail levels and have a much higher success rate.  We suggest to try different fingers including your thumb and see if you have better results.

2) During the 5 scan programming process for each finger, slightly repositioning your finger after each scan will store more information and increase your success rate.

3) To increase success rate register the same finger multiple times. Note, that adding more than two fingerprints requires authorization from the two administrative prints.
