outer ring = solid white

door is unlocked


center dot quickly switches between multiple colors and outer ring quickly spins once

all lights are off

reader is not connected to power (check to see if power wires are swapped)


center dot is flashing red

reader is connected to power but cannot communicate with the ACU (check to see if the +B [blue] and -A [violet] lines are swapped)


center dot is solid blue

reader is connected to power and can communicate with the ACU, but has not been configured as an entry in the Control Center


center dot is solid green and the outer ring lights up and spins

reader is possibly not receiving enough voltage or current, potentially due to a break in wiring – try connecting the reader directly to the ACU, bypassing any wire runs
