The iCLASS lock system is the new external door lock system on campus requiring your new campus ID card. The instructions below will walk you through how to open a door and what the lights on the reader mean.
If the Reader Light is Green
If the light on the badge reader is green, the door is unlocked. You may enter the building without swiping your badge.
If the Reader Light is Red or Off
If the light on the badge reader is red or off, the door is locked.
You must swipe your badge to enter the building.
If the Door is Locked
If the door is locked and you swipe your badge across the reader, the light will turn green and you may enter the building.
NOTE: The reader will flash green after reading a card to acknowledge that it has read the card, but that doesn’t mean that the system has granted you access to the door. If the light flashes green and then turns red again, you do not have access to the door.
If you believe you should have access to the door, please contact Support Central.
If the Light Alternates Red and Green
After swiping your badge across the reader, if the light alternates between red and green, you are required to enter your PIN before the system will grant you access.
Enter your PIN (found under the info tab on MyOC) and the light will turn green, indicating you have been given access to the building.
If the Door Requires a Reader to Exit
If there is a reader at an exit door, you must swipe your badge to exit the building.
If you do not swipe your badge before exiting the building, an alarm will sound.
NOTE: If you swipe your badge and you cannot exit the building, press the emergency release button located on the wall by the door or on the back side of the crash bar.
