Adding and activating an IQ
First you have to add your IQ to your site to use it. After that you can activate your IQ.
Activating the IQ is the process of exchanging two pieces of information between the end user and the IQ, a PIN and a secret. With these pieces of information the end user can generate a One Time Password (OTP). This OTP allows for a second factor of authentication for important actions on API endpoints, such as remote openings and adding and removing locks. Activation happens per IQ, so if you have multiple IQ's, they all need to be activated. An OTP is build up from three parts: The current UTC date/time (format: YYYYmmDDHHMMSS), the secret and the PIN code. The first 5 digits of the MD5 hash of these 3 parts concatenated together is an OTP. An OTP has a validity of 3 minutes, allowing for some delays and errors in device time.
