  1. Works great

    Dick Lieber (verified owner)

    Replaced the Schlage z-wave version. Now I have HomeKit compatibility! Plus the BE479 actually manipulates the bolt and monitors the bolt position.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q Can a Schlage electronic lock use a 6 pin tumbler? answer now
    Asked by Clay Luck on November 25, 2020 5:38 PM
    Answered by the admin

    Some Schlage locks are designed with a 6-pin key cylinder by the factory. However, this model will only fit a 5-pin tumbler as a 6-pin would not sit flush with the lock body. For more information, please contact our sales staff at 937-247-9327, option 1!

  2. Answered by the admin

    It will remain the way it came. The lighted keys are located behind the touchpad that is not meant to be removed.

  3. Q Will this lock work with Alexa and an Echo hub device? answer now
    Asked by JD on September 23, 2020 12:19 PM
    Answered by the admin

    This lock will connect with Alexa when using the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adaptor.

  4. Answered by the admin

    This lock can not be set to a schedule on its own but can be set to a schedule if paired with a smart home hub such as Apple HomeKit or Vera. 

  5. Answered by the admin

    It certainly can! Typically, when a code is manually enrolled at the lock while the lock is connected to a Vera hub, Vera will actually pull the code from the lock and display this as an enrolled PIN number on your Vera dashboard.

  6. Q Can this lock be scheduled to be unlocked for a certain time period each day? answer now
    Asked by Charlie Moran on September 24, 2019 5:04 PM
    Answered by the admin

    This deadbolt model does not support scheduling. If you are looking for a lock that does have this feature, I would recommend looking into the BE469 and using this in conjunction with a smart hub such as Vera! Schlage BE469

  7. Q How long do the batteries last? answer now
    Asked by Mike on August 17, 2019 6:51 PM
    Answered by the admin

    The batteries are averaged between 6 months to a year. 

  8. Q Will this hold up outdoors? For a fence gate door answer now
    Asked by Victor Munoz on August 4, 2019 9:25 PM
    Answered by the admin

    The back of this lock which houses the batteries and electrical components is not sealed, so it can only be installed on a door where the secure side of the door / gate is fully protected, which typically is the case. For an outside gate take a look at the keyless locks that will work for this application.

  9. Q Does this work with a Ring doorbell? answer now
    Asked by Mark on June 23, 2019 2:52 AM
    Answered by the admin

    This product does work with the Ring Alarm and will allow you to control the lock directly through the Ring app! 

  10. Answered by the admin

    You can set up codes through the app remotely but you must be connected with the lock via Apple TV if you are using HomeKit. We highly recommend you speak with our vacation rental property team to get the best lock and communication device for your situation.
