Installation Diagram for the Triple Interlock Lock
- The interlock lock control unit will be installed on the ceiling panel, connected to an available socket (the shorter the distance between the control unit and the socket, the better, to match the power supply cable and save wiring costs).
- The indicator light will be mounted on the wall panel in an easily visible area when entering/exiting, typically located next to the panel door.
- The lock bolt will be installed underground inside the door frame (requires drilling and laying underground cables) and can be installed on the side or top of the door frame.
- The bolt positioning plate will be attached to the door leaf, corresponding to the lock bolt installation area.

Additionally, some installation errors to note for interlock locks are:
- Securely install the signal connection wires to the lock bolt and indicator light — Error: The alarm bell will ring loudly and continuously.
- Install the lock bolt and bolt positioning plate in the same direction (Wi-Fi symbol) on both accessories — Error: The bolt will not function.
- Reverse the signal wires between the indicator light and the lock bolt — Error: Unable to install. The lock bolt’s signal wire is usually slightly thicker than the wire for the indicator light, so please be mindful during installation.
- Use cable boxes and tubing to protect signal wires on the ceiling to prevent insects from damaging the wires. Signal wires are different from power cables, and if they are cut or damaged, they can be difficult to reconnect.
