ASSA ABLOY Visionline Access Control System - In Development

Guide for using the ASSA ABLOY Visionline Access Control System with Seam

Overview

Seam integrates seamlessly with the ASSA ABLOY Visionline Access Control System (ACS), a widely-used on-premise control platform for hotels. This system supports doors, elevators, turnstiles, and gates, enabling you to secure either a single building or multiple buildings using the same setup. Visionline uses a data-on-card platform, significantly reducing installation costs because the locks can function offline. Additionally, the capability of the system to operate independently of network connectivity enhances the reliability and flexibility.

Supported Devices

This integration supports all readers and wireless locks connected to the Visionline ACS.
We support the following features:

Device Provider Key

To create a Connect Webview that enables you to connect your Visionline ACS to Seam, include the visionline device provider key as the selected_provider or in the accepted_providers list. For more information, see Customize the Brands to Display in Your Connect Webview.

Setup Instructions

Before connecting your Visionline ACS to Seam, you must first install and connect your Seam Bridge. For detailed instructions, see Seam Bridge.
  1. 1.
    Log in to the Visionline application and note your username and password. Optionally, you can add a new user and use their username and password instead of using the username and password of an existing Visionline application user.
  2. 2.
    Make sure that you set up a Mobile Access account in the Visionline application so that you can issue mobile credentials.
    If you have not yet set up your Visionline Mobile Access account, perform the following steps:
    • At the bottom of the left navigation pane of the Visionline application, click Lists.
    • In the System setup area of the left navigation pane, click Mobile Access > Mobile Access > New.
    • In the Mobile Access account details window click Server.
    • In the Server pane, specify the connection details that you received from ASSA ABLOY.
      For hotels, ASSA ABLOY wraps these parameters and applies them through Option Codes (that is, license strings). In that situation, you do not enter these parameters directly.
    • Save the new Visionline Mobile Access account.
  3. 3.
    Retrieve your Visionline system ID, as follows:
    • At the bottom of the left navigation pane of the Visionline application, click Lists.
    • In the System setup area of the left navigation pane, click Mobile Access.
    • Select the configured mobile access account.
    • Click Server.
    • In the Server pane, note the value in the System ID field.
  4. 4.
    Create a Connect Webview, including visionline in the set of accepted_providers.
  5. 5.
    Display the Connect Webview and perform the following steps:
    • If presented with multiple brand options within the Connect Webview, select Visionline.
    • Select your Seam Bridge that is connected to the Visionline system to which you want to connect.
      In the Connect Webview, select your Seam Bridge.
    • Specify the following values to add your ASSA ABLOY Visionline account to Seam:
      • Your Visionline application username and password.
      • The local IP address of the on-premises computer, for example, 192.168.0.10.
      • (Coming soon!) The system ID of your Visionline instance.
      In the Connect Webview, specify your Visionline credentials.
    • Click Submit.
When connecting a Visionline ACS in your sandbox test environment, you can use the following test credentials:

Brand-Specific Credential Restrictions

When creating a credential, you must set is_multi_phone_sync_credential to true or external_type to visionline_card. For more information, see Configuring Visionline Mobile Credentials and Issuing Credentials.
