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.
Customer Questions & Answers
- Q Can a Schlage electronic lock use a 6 pin tumbler? answer nowAsked by November 25, 2020 5:38 PMonAnswered 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!
- Q On the Schlage Sense keypad, is that a protective peel off cover, or does it remain the way it ca... answer nowAsked by October 14, 2020 3:05 PMonAnswered 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.
- Q Will this lock work with Alexa and an Echo hub device? answer nowAsked by September 23, 2020 12:19 PMonAnswered by the admin
This lock will connect with Alexa when using the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adaptor.
- Q can this lock be set up on a automatic schedule to unlock and lock at a certain time? and change ... answer nowAsked by June 9, 2020 5:50 PMonAnswered 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.
- Q In the event of technical failure to communicate - can the door code be set manually from the key... answer nowAsked by October 3, 2019 4:10 PMonAnswered 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.
- Q Can this lock be scheduled to be unlocked for a certain time period each day? answer nowAsked by September 24, 2019 5:04 PMonAnswered 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

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.
- Q Can this lock have access code assigned via the app or on site ? This is a property that is for s... answer nowAsked by April 26, 2019 7:20 PMonAnswered 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.
