Diagnosing connectivity issues

A critical component of your safe’s connectivity is the Connectivity Module. This has magnetic feet and is typically mounted on the side of the safe.

For the safe to properly connect the cloud the following must be true:

  1. The connectivity module is connected to the safe and has power. Check that there is an RJ37 or “phone” cable that runs from the back of the safe to the Connectivity module. Check that the power light is ON solid.
  2. The connectivity module has no open SNET / RJ37 ports. The Connectivity Module operates as a closed circuit. There are 2 SNET ports, one runs to the safe and the other should either have a terminator, see picture, or it should have a cable connected to a side cart or Tube Vend.
  3. If applicable, the ethernet cable is connected on both ends, from the Connectivity Module to a live port on the wall.

Power Connectivity Module is on when Solid Green
Wi-Fi Power Indicates Wi-Fi configuration 

Solid Green – Wi-Fi EnabledNo light or Off – Wi-Fi Disabled

Wi-Fi Indicates the Safe is connected to a valid Wi-Fi Access Point

Solid Green – Good Wi-Fi connection 

Blinking Green – Wi-Fi mode is enabled but,

       a) Safe is trying to get an IP, during initial configuration of IP   Or,

       b) IP is configured but the there is an issue in the network

No light or Off – WiFi is configured off


  • This function is not supported in all models.
  • Wi-Fi must be enabled in Safe connectivity settings. If both Ethernet and Wi-Fi are enabled, Ethernet connection takes preference
Ethernet Indicates safe has a valid Ethernet connection

Solid Green – Ethernet Enabled and Good connection

No light or Off – Ethernet Disabled

Blinking state – Ethernet mode is enabled but,

        a) Safe is trying to get an IP, during initial configuration of IP   Or,

        b) IP is configured but the network access has an issue. Confirm with your system admin that the port is enabled.

Note: Ethernet must be enabled in Safe connectivity settings. 

Bluetooth Power Indicates Bluetooth status. This feature is not supported.
Wi-Fi Power Indicates Wi-Fi configuration.

Solid Green – Wi-Fi Enabled

No light or Off – Wi-Fi Disabled

WPS status Indicates the WPS status

Solid Green – Not Applicable 

No light or Off – Normal state

Blinking – only while doing a WPS search

The safe connects to: HTTPS:// using HTTPS (port 443) with 2048 bit encryption over TCP. The site * needs to be whitelisted in the network allowlist or whitelist.

To identify the root cause of any connectivity issues your safe may be experiencing  follow the steps below.

[Please note this functionality described below was released in firmware version X.09.02.08, earlier firmware versions will have the same capabilities in different menu paths, some requiring AMSEC Support intervention.]

  1. Manager (or similar permissions user) logs in with USERID & PIN
  2. Select 3 – Admin
  3. Select 8 – Diagnose Network

Diagnose network

Here you see 4 different diagnostic tests for you to perform. It is recommended performing them all, in a sequential manner, starting with #1 Ping IP.

#1 Ping IP – The purpose of this test is to determine if the safe is successful in obtaining an IP address and joining the network.

  • If fail: IP Fail – safe can’t join network. To remediate, verify that the connection is valid. Are other devices successfully connected to this network?
  • If success: Safe successfully joined your network.

#2 Ping Google – This url can be edited to ping any other site that is allowed in your organization. The purpose of this test is to determine if the safe can successfully reach the internet. 

  • If fail: Unable to reach Verify your network has internet access and confirm with your network administrator that this url is not blocked.
  • If success: Safe successfully accessed the internet.

If either #1 or #2 tests are unsuccessful, please look at your network settings.

#3 Ping – This test will determine if there are any issues reaching the AMSEC Cloud.

  • If fail: Safe is unable to reach the AMSEC cloud servers. Confirm with your network administrator that AMSEC url is not blocked.
  • If success: Safe successfully reached the AMSEC servers.

#4 Sync Now – This test can take a few minutes to complete. 

  • If fail: Unable to sync to your cloud account.
  • If success: Safe successfully synced to your cloud account.
