Frequently Asked Questions

? What Happens If Too Many Incorrect Codes Have Been Entered?
The answer to this question depends on the model of smart lock you have installed. This information is usually provided in the user manual. The solution for some locks, as those made by Schlage, is to wait for 30 seconds until you re-enter the code.
? Are Single Cylinder Deadbolts Better Than Double Cylinder Deadbolts?
The single cylinder deadbolts are not necessarily better but they are certainly more convenient. The main reason for this is because they require a key for locking and unlocking the door from the exterior and not from both the exterior and interior as double cylinder deadbolts need. Therefore, single cylinder deadbolts are more common and less expensive. Also, they are considered safer in case of a fire.
? Do Smart Door Locks Still Work When the Phone Battery Drains Out?
Yes, all smart door locks can work even if the smartphone battery drains out. You just have to use the physical key included and open the door in the old fashion way.
? How Long Does the Battery Last?
The battery life depends on the smart lock model and the quality of the battery. In general, most batteries last between 3 and 6 months until they need a replacement. For more convenience, when the battery runs low, many of the available smart locks feature a low battery indicator that announces you to replace the battery. Some of them also announce you via the mobile app.
