What is the advantage of having multiple user codes?
Different user codes allow you to know when different members of your family use your door locks. You can have multiple unique codes that you can assign to each family member or temporarily assign to a neighbor, a house sitter, or a guest in your home. Each time someone uses one of your door codes, you can receive an email or text message alert telling you who just used your door lock. You can set up different user codes by following the steps here.

Yes. Cold weather could deplete your electronic door lock batteries faster than usual. Even within the recommended temperature range, battery performance can still be impacted.

Here are some great tips for increasing battery efficiency during cold weather.
What do I do if my door lock isn’t locking or unlocking?
If your door lock isn’t working, check the following: Check for low batteries. If the red light on the back of your door lock is blinking, you’ll need to replace your batteries with four new AA batteries. Check to see if the key turns in the lock. If it does, you have an issue with either your user codes, batteries, or communication. If it’s either of the first two, re-add your user codes or replace the batteries. If it’s a communication issue, check trouble-shooting for not receiving commands. If the key doesn’t turn, check for physical obstructions to the lock or in the door jamb. We may need to send out a technician for repairs. If none of these fixes or explains the problem, contact our Customer Care team via chat or email for assistance.

Why is there a red flashing light on my key-pad?
If your door lock is beeping and the buttons are red, this means that there’s been some kind of error. This can happen if you’ve tried an incorrect door lock code too many times or if you’ve programmed a new code incorrectly. Complete the following to fix it:
First make sure you’re using the right code and that the code is currently programmed into your door lock. If it’s not, re-add the code.
If it keeps on beeping every time you try a correct code, wait five minutes for your lock to reset.
If the door is flashing red after the code has been entered, this means your batteries are low, and you will need to replace them.
If neither of these works, contact our Customer Care team via chat or email for assistance.
