Questions People Are Asking About This Product
Below are just a few of the 280 questions people are asking about this deadbolt door lock. To read all of them, just click on the following link: Answered Questions!
Question: Does it have an auto lock function?
Answer: It’s probably confusing when you get both yes and no answers! I just installed the lock. There are two apps used to control it. Amazon Key and Schlage Home. It’s a bit confusing, but you’ll want both. Both apps have an Auto Lock setting. You can select 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes or 4 minutes. Navigating the apps is not obvious. For Amazon Key, go to “Settings” in the main menu, select the lock name (Encode if you didn’t change it) and look for Auto Relock. In Schlage App, use the settings icon at the bottom of the page (using iOS; not sure about Android); choose “Auto Lock Delay“.
Question: If I have a power outage will a pre-programmed code still work?
Answer: Yes. It operates on batteries. However, you will not be able to use the app to access the lock during a power outage as your WiFi will most likely be off too. Power being out does not affect the normal lock/unlock functionality using the manual key.
Question: Can I change the code remotely?
Answer: Yes, when the lock is hooked up to your WiFi with the Schlage Home app or the Amazon key app you can change the codes from anywhere.
Question: Does the lock kit come with a handle?
Question: Can I unlock the door just with the app?
Answer: Yes, You need to link the Encode Deadbolt to a WiFi that has internet access. After a quick setup with Schlage.com you can lock and unlock the deadbolt via internet with just your smart phone app.
Question: Does the Schlage encode have auto-unlock? Or do you have to launch the app to manually unlock the Schlage every time?
