When you set up a new Smarthome, one of the simplest gadgets you can add to your arsenal is a Smartlock. It's not much harder than changing a standard lock for your home. The following is to be done.
This guide installs a Smart Lock from Encode Encode. Even if you have another Smart Lock from another brand, most (if not all) steps are the same. An intelligent lock generally has three main components: an outer part with a keyboard, a lock for a key or both, an inner part with the batteries and circuits, and the latch that secures your door. The tricky part is to connect everyone.
A quick tip: You may have been advised to test your Smart Lock before inserting it by inserting the batteries to turn it on. Then you can be sure that the lock will turn on before it is in the door.
That seems to be good advice, but the first time you turn on a smart lock, it checks to see if the door is pointing to the left or right and the latch mechanism is adjusted. Without a door that can be tested against, this can be wrong and your installation will not work properly. If you would like to perform this test, you should review the factory reset instructions. Reset the lock to factory settings after running the test.
Removing the Old Lock
Before you can install your new Smart Lock, you must remove the old lock. Standard locks are easy to remove as long as you still have access to the interior of your home. Start by finding the two screws on the inner knob. Then unscrew them.
Open the door (if you have not already done so) and go to the front of the castle lock (where you plug in your key). The key assembly should be loose, pull it off.
Now look at the side of your door for the latch that slides out when you lock it. Loosen the two screws and pull out the screw assembly.
Installing the Smart Lock
Now find the screw for your new lock and look for the top mark:
 Slide the latch into the door frame and make sure the top is facing up. Look in the door hole to see if the latch inside the door is well centered. You will notice three holes in the assembly – they should be as close to the center as possible. If this is not the case, you can extend or shorten the screw (depending on the current length) to center it. Normally you do this by turning the bolt mechanism, but you may also need to use a screwdriver instead. Then install the two screws to lock the bolt.
Next, find the exterior mounting part for the lock. Pay attention to the long strip and the electronic cable.
Insert the assembly into your door. Pass the locking bar through the middle hole of the screw assembly. It should be the only hole through which the pole fits. Carefully push the wiring under the screw elements. You want to make sure the hardware does not adjust the cabling.
If your Smart Lock assembly seems to fall out We will secure the door at this point in later steps. This is especially the case with high keyboards. You can also use a double-sided adhesive tape to hold it in place until you can fully secure the lock.
Some intelligent locks contain a steel or plastic plate that extends against the inside of the door. Take this and feed the wire from the front assembly. Then locate the two long screws and guide them through the other two holding the screw assembly on the front assembly. This locks everything in place.
For some latches, secure the inner assembly with the two long screws without the metal plate.
Connect the wire from the outer piece to the inner assembly, usually the inner part Channels that guide the wiring and prevent jamming.
When you have connected the cable, place the inner part on the door and secure it with Fasten screws.
Now you only need to insert your batteries Door shows, it's normal s it is locked and unlocked multiple times as part of this process. Once this is done, you can pair your app and set up PINs if you have a keyboard.
