Bind the Zymkey

how can I repeat the binding by hand? After installation with Buster 2020 and RPi4 did not work.

Provided the rest of the installation went ok, you should be able to restart it with systemctl.

systemctl restart zkifc

You can use systemctl status and journalctl along with watching the LED to make sure it’s active(running).

systemctl status zkifc
journalctl -u zkifc

After this command:
