If the lock is set up with the Schlage system option (ideal for Android users or households using both Android and iOS), you’ll need to add a Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter to your home Wi-Fi network. Notifications will be enabled by default from the Schlage Sense app but can always be updated to your preference in lock settings.
After you’ve removed the lock from your app, use the app to pair the lock again. This time you will be presented with two options for set up – “Setup with HomeKit” or “Set up with Schlage System.” For your lock to compatible with both the iOS and Android smartphone app, you will need to select “Set up with the Schlage System.”
It’s important to note that virtual keys will not work with locks set up using the HomeKit option. If you’d like to take advantage of virtual keys, you will need to reset your lock to factory settings and re-pair it using the Schlage system setup noted in number 5.

Yes, to use this with your iPhone and to have remote access you will need to use the Apple Home Kit App and to have it paired with Apple TV.
- Q I am considering this lock. I have an Android phone. And want to get the wifi adapter as well. 1.... answer nowAnswered by the admin
Yes, it will work with android but you will need the wifi adapter for it to work. Without seeing the style of door or lock as not all door locks are the same we cannot say, however, we would encourage you to contact our residential sales team to help you choose the best product for your needs and your door.
- Q If I put it on a cabinet door and the batteries go dead, could I get inside to replace the batter... answer nowAnswered by the admin Yes, it has a key override which you can unlock the bolt to change the batteries. We do not recommend this for a cabinet door as it is a standard deadbolt. We have many options for cabinets and we would highly recommend that you speak with our cabinet specialist to ensure you choose the right product for your needs.
- Q On the Schlage Sense BE479 smart lock, it states there is built in alarm protection to detect pot... answer nowAnswered by the admin
It has a built-in alarm that will sound if it is forced open in a locked state or if it is attempted to be bypassed. The alarm just goes off until it is shut off.
- Q can you program an access code to only open at certain times of the day rather than all day. and ... answer nowAnswered by the adminYes, you can do so from the App and as long as you are within Bluetooth range of the lock you can control the lock. You can send keys to people without being connected but they will also have to download the app in order to use the guest key and when they are in the range of the lock it will upload the guest. If in the future you wish to use and update the lock remotely you can purchase the Schlage wifi adapter for Androids or Apple TV for iPhones.
- Answered by the admin You would need to check the compatibility list of the Nvidia system. They will be able to know for sure if the lock is capable of working with that system.
- Q In order to remotely change door codes, will I have to use wifi adapter, or will iphone app handl... answer nowA
The iPhone app will handle code updates within Bluetooth range, typically 20-30ft. To do it outside Bluetooth range, for example from an office across town, or when on vacation across the country, you will need the WiFi adapter.
- Q Can this lock be controlled remotely or do you have to be right by the door to program codes into... answer nowA
With Apple TV you can use your HomeKit app to program codes remotely, as the Apple TV device then acts similar to a hub for wireless communication with the lock. Without Apple TV you use Bluetooth to communicate, so you would need to be within range of the lock to lock/unlock, and update codes. If you don't have / want Apple TV and need a system to update remotely, take a look at these Z-Wave kits. There are kits specific to vacation rentals and residential homes.
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.
