Placing the component into the user interface and uploading the project into the Ilevia's Home automation server X1.


This below is the visual result of the Lock component within the Ilevia’s User interface (Classic style) on the left image. Then on the right you can see the Lock component in a Map user interface style environment.

Click the lock icon and enter the password. If the password is correct it will unlock and trigger the scenario. Same thing happens if you try to lock back again.
