PPR Apartment Card Reader Instructions

PPR Apartment Room Door Card Reader Instructions

The following instructions will explain how to unlock and lock your room door. Please note that the inside cover of the card reader will be changed out within the next week or two to expose a lock/unlock button. Messaging will be sent out in advance to let you know what day and time this will be done. The process only takes about a minute at each door.

Unlock Your Door

If the door is closed and locked, present your OneCard to the reader and the light will turn green. This will leave the door in an unlocked state until you lock it.

If the door is locked and you are inside your room, opening the door will unlock the door and leave it in an unlocked state until you lock it.

Lock Your Door

If the door is unlocked, you can present your OneCard to the reader and the light will turn red. This will leave the door in a locked state.

If you are in your room with the door closed, you can press the lock/unlock button (this button will be exposed after the cover has been changed) and the door will be put into a locked state.

 

Please remember to lock your door every time you will be leaving your suite!  If you have any questions, please reach out to the OneCard Office at onecard@swarthmore.edu. You may contact Public Safety with any issues after regular hours.
