  2. When the cell turns green it is unlocked.

Can't find the lock?

Did the unlocking fail?

Should the app fail to unlock the cell turns yellow instead. You can then try to move closer to the door, gate or such and tap the lock's name again when it's available.

With Parakey NFC sticker you can unlock by tapping your phone against the sticker instead of opening the Parakey app. If you can't see a sticker please contact the person responsible for the place you have access to for more information.
