How to Enable Auto-Lock

The Auto-Lock feature enables your door to lock automatically after a predetermined amount of time (up to 30 minutes) has passed. 

To activate this feature you must be an authorized owner of the associated lock and be located within Bluetooth range of the lock you are enabling this feature on.

PLEASE NOTE: If you want to use the Auto-Lock Timing feature to control when your door locks after it closes, you must have DoorSense™ installed. Without DoorSense™, the door will lock automatically after it closes when Auto-Lock is enabled
