How does Dynamic Channel Switching (DCS) work on the AD-Series?

Dynamic Channel Switching is a feature of the Schlage AD-series wireless access point modules. Dynamic Channel Switching (DCS) increases the robustness of the wireless RF communication in a noisy radio environment. Because DCS sets and assigns which RF channel the PIM400 and AD-Series wireless access point modules will use, you must LINK or re-LINK all locks on a PIM400 when any DCS setting is changed.

 

Here is a Technical Note on what Dynamic Channel Switching is, what it improves, how to set-up, and frequently asked DCS questions.

Setting Dynamic Channel Switching

 

1)     Connect and couple the SUS to the PIM400 you intend to change. See the SUS User Guide for details

 

2)     Under “PIM Properties” and the “Edit” tab is the “Channel Switching” window with the four options of; Enable and one of the channel groups

a)     Disabled DCS,

b) Enable DCS on Channels 1, 4, 7,

c) Enable DCS on Channels 2, 5, 8,

d) Enable DCS on Channels 3, 6, 9

 

3)     If the RF communication was not working on a single channel we recommended you now select a group that does not include that suspect channel

4)     Hit “Save” to make this setting

 

5)     LINK or RE-LINK all the AD-Series wireless access point modules assigned to this PIM400 now that a new group of RF Channels are selected for communication. See the appropriate device User Guide for LINKING instructions.
