The flagship 2N IP Style door intercom now offers QR Code scanning access control.

QR codes are an ideal temporary authentication key for door entry and access control systems - particularly for visitors, delivery drivers, contractors and staff when access to the building may be restricted to certain times/days or for one-time-only use. 


The 2N IP Style is available with a variety of  access authentication methods:

How to set-up the 2N IP Style QR Code Access Control

2N IP Style QR code settings

Settings: enable the function in the 2N® IP Style web interface: Hardware -> Door -> Entry Rules -> QR code reading

A QR code is assigned to a visitor via 2N Access Commander software, in the Visitors section in the user details. You can find the 'add QR code' button in the Credentials subsection. Generate the code with a single click of a button and send it to the visitor by e-mail or text.

The QR code can also be printed out or saved as an image file.

Access with a QR code is recorded in the access logs. You can differentiate it by the icon indicating the various access methods.

What is a QR Code?

QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) are similar to conventional bar codes, but are much more flexible and, due to their 2-dimensional structure, are able to hold much more data.

How does access control using QR Code recognition work?

2N IP Style door intercom with QR code scanningTypically for access control via QR codes, the entry system will include PC software or a smart phone App which quickly and easily generates a unique QR code. These QR codes generated can be set to allow access for a limited time period, specific days of the week, limited number of uses and entry limited to specific areas, floors or zones of the building.

Once the QR code has been generated, and sent directly to the recipient (the user who requires temporary access to the building - such as a delivery driver or cleaning staff, for example) for them to display on their smartphone device or print out if required.

A QR code-enabled Door Intercom device (in this case the IP Style), features a scanner (in the form of a built-in camera); the user simply displays their unique QR code from their smart phone to the access control device, the QR code is automatically scanned to confirm or deny access rights. Once the code is confirmed the door opens to allow access.

How to generate a QR code for the 2N IP Style

You can generate QR codes in three different ways.

  • Via the intercom’s web interface – go to the Users  section, select a user and click on the QR code icon in the user codes  section. You can download the generated code immediately and send it to the user.
  • In 2N Access Commander – software, which we call the central hub of the whole access control system. The generation and distribution of QR codes is more systematic and convenient here.
  • Using third-party QR code generators – the only condition here is that they support the generation of PIN codes from embedded digits 10-15 characters in length.
