Installation Instructions for Smart Door Locks

Before setting up your smart device, make sure your control panel is installed and powered up.

Smart door locks provide the ability to remotely control your door with or without keyless entry. Ours can be either keyless (left) or have a lever (right). Either smart door lock can be automated with schedules and rules you customize based on your home, life, and security system.
