Changing the PIN of the SpaceLogic Bluetooth Adapter

You change the PIN of the SpaceLogic Bluetooth Adapter for best security practices. The Bluetooth Adapter PIN is engineered to a default code of 333666 and should be changed to a secure code before you perform device commissioning. You configure the password for Bluetooth access in the RP controller.

You enter a 6-digit PIN to configure the password for RP controller Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) access. The default PIN for Bluetooth access is 333666 which you should change at first use. Changing the property and then saving your changes overwrites the default PIN, or any previously-set PIN. A factory reset returns the PIN to its default.

Notice

POTENTIAL COMPROMISE OF SYSTEM AVAILABILITY, INTEGRITY, AND CONFIDENTIALITY

Change default passwords at first use to help prevent unauthorized access to device settings, controls, and information.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in loss of data or equipment damage.

To change the RP controller Bluetooth 6-digit PIN
  1. In WorkStation, in the System Tree pane, expand the BACnet Interface and then select the IP network.

  2. Select the RP controller.

  3. Expand the device folder and click System .

  4. In the List view , click Settings.

  5. In the File menu, click Properties .

  6. In the Bluetooth pin box, enter a 6-digit numeric PIN.

    The PIN is validated, so you should ensure that it is 6 numeric characters only. Leading zeroes are permitted.

    For Cybersecurity purposes, the following criteria are applicable:

    • The number you enter does not display in the interface and no confirmation appears when you finish.

    • The PIN is automatically downloaded on hosting (that is, the EcoStruxure BMS database PIN overwrites the locally set PIN)

    Tip:

    You can mass configure the BLE 6-digit PIN for multiple RP controllers. Use the Search function in WorkStation to locate the controllers and then use the Settings object and its Bluetooth pin property to change them.

  7. Click Save .
