How to Enable Mobile Access

Mobile access can be used to control the panel while on Local network (LAN) or while you are remote.

Local Access: All you need to do for local access is to follow the following steps to enable mobile access, download the mobile and add the panel to mobile app using Local IP address of the panel.

Remote Access: For this setup a port will need to be opened on the firewall so the panel can be accessed from outside the network. Default port is port 443 for the Atlas Series Panels.

 

Please Note

Mobile access is Admin Level Only. Each Atlas series panel comes with 1 Free license which can only be used on 1 mobile device

How to Access Your Panel Remotely

Follow the steps below to access your panel remotely using the Zkteco app

Step 10: To access the panel remotely port 443 needs to be forwarded to the local IP address of the panel in the router settings. 

Each router manufacturer has a section for port forwarding but sometimes it's labeled something other than "Port Forwarding".   If you don't know where to locate the port forwarding section in your router go here, select the brand of your router, select the model number and then follow the steps in your router to forward port 443 to the panels local IP address that was used in step 8.

Once you have the port forwarded in your router go to this webpage, type 443 in the Port Number box and then click the Check button. If you get a message that says "Open" then the port is correctly forwarded in the router.

Step 11: Next, add the public IP address and username/password to the mobile app.  You can get your public IP address by going here on a computer or cell phone connected to the same network as the panel. 

The Login page on the app should have the information below:

Server Address: https://public IP address

Username: admin (default username)

Password: Admin Password of the Panel
