Door opener DA1

After using the card or chip the DA1 door opener can enter attendance and also engage the electromagnetic door lock (there is built-in relay inside of DA1). We recommend low-current DC locks. A secondary chip reader can also be connected to the DA1 so that the door can be unlocked by a chip or card from both sides. You can then configure DA1 to always insert for example Clock IN when beeping on DA1, or Clock OUT when beeping at the secondary reader.

The DA1 door unlocker connects to the LAN network using a standard LAN cable (it does not have WiFi, but that can be solved by using a small WiFi client, such as TP-LINK TL-WR902AC) and must have a fixed IP address in your internal network. You also need to run Proxy Agent on some PC in your internal network, which forwards data between DA1 and your GIRITON cloud account. The Proxy Agent must therefore have access to both the DA1 in the internal network and the Internet.

The ProxyAgent communicates with the address *.giriton.com (the IP is not used directly, it can change over time, rather the DNS name is used) exclusively using an HTTPS connection and port TCP 443. The connection is always opened by the client (ProxyAgent) towards cloud and therefore port mapping is not required.

Before installing the DA1 unlocker, you must first set the correct IP address in the DA1. If you gave us the required IP address when ordering the device, we have already configured the DA1 with the correct IP address. If the DA1 is not preset to the correct IP address, set it using the configuration program. Connect the DA1 to the power supply and to the LAN network. The DA1 should light on the numeric keypad and beep when turned on.

On some PC in your LAN network, turn on the paired Proxy Agent and let it run in the background. It is ideal to let the app autostart.

Then add the new DA1 in the Giriton web application in the Paired Devices agenda. When adding, it is necessary to select Proxy Agent that is in the same internal network as DA1, then enter the IP address of the DA1 in your internal network, port, login and password. The default values are pre-filled. If DA1 is turned on and connected to LAN, the Proxy agent is turned on and online and you have entered the correct credentials, the new DA1 will be succesfully added to the paired devices.

In the web application, for the newly paired DA1, you can configure if / what attendance should be inserted when beeping on DA1 or its secondary reader etc.

Hardware instalation







1) DA1 device
2) Back cover
3) Mounting break
4), 5) Mounting screws
6) LAN cable connector
7) Cables for 12 V DC power supply, COM-NO-NC relay, RS485 for secondary reader

Network connection

ProxyAgent is installed on some PCs in the local network. The application forwards data between the Giriton cloud and between DA1 connected in the same network.

DA1 used to unlock outside doors

Please consider the security when using the DA1 to unlock the outside door of the building. If the thief gets to the DA1, dismounts the device from the wall and connects the correct wires, it will unlock the electrical door lock attached to this DA1 and allow the thief to enter the building. To unlock the door where this is a risk, we recommend placing only a secondary reader on the outer side of the wall, which will be connected to the DA1 located on the inner side of the wall using an RS485 double line. This eliminates a similar risk, as unlocking and manipulating the secondary reader cannot unlock the electrical door lock.
