  1. Good Luck when it's time to replace the batteries


    Professionally installed last year. Works great when it’s working, but good luck when it’s time to change the batteries. Followed the user manual exactly in the MULTIPLE INTRICATE steps required to reset and re-oriente the lock and add/delete/reset codes and it won’t work. A rubik’s cube is simpler. Calling a locksmith Monday, probably going to throw it in the trash and get a simple fool proof manual deadbolt. Another example of how technology only complicates our lives.

    Our mentally handicapped son has a lot of issues but can remember a simple code he gets to create. Thank you for this product that gives him the ability to come and go as he ought to without having to keep track of a key.

    Excellent product, easy to install, just follow the directions step-by-step! Really is nice not to have to carry keys around and wonderful for the neighbors to use when they have to watch the house while I’m traveling for business. Don’t have to worry about losing the key.

    I needed 2 Kwikset Smart Key sets. I went to Lowe’s. They did not have the Antique Bronze in stock but thought they could get it in 4-6 weeks. So I got online and found you guys. In three days I had my lock sets and at a price lower than Lowe’s. Thanks for the good service.

  8. Make life easier

    Mary Catlett

    The service was great and we love the lock! It makes life so much easier because I have a condo away from our primary residence and I got tired of dealing with keys every time someone needed to get in.

    I am a homebuilder and we have used similar types of locking systems for our homes. We really like the SmartCode lock by GoKeyless. It functions smoothly and can secure our houses better than any key could. We use it at our personal home, rather than leaving a key under the mat or under a rock. This is a great way to secure a home.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q The lock is working in reverse - it locks when it should be unlocking. answer now
    Asked by Krista E Amstutz on January 20, 2021 8:38 PM

    This is an indicator that the handing of the lock is incorrect. To resolve this, you will need to redo the handing process.

    1. Press and HOLD the Lock button while installing the battery pack.
    2. Hold the button until the latch bolt starts moving on its own.
    3. The latch should begin moving on its own to complete the process.

    You will need to ensure that the inside turn piece was installed in the vertical position and not turned off to the side.

  2. A

    To Change the Batteries on the SmartCode 909:
    1. Remove the two screws located on the sides of the interior cover and slide this upward to expose the programming button.
    2. Slide the black battery holder located at the top of the unit upward to remove this from the lock.
    3. Exchange the batteries with a fresh set and slide the holder back into the lock.
    4. Reinstall the sliding cover and fasten the two screws to hold the cover in place.

    These steps can be performed while the lock is installed. The battery cover will require a small amount of force to slide it upward as it clips into place. 

  3. A

    We would recommend following the Factory Reset instructions found on the second page of the attached guide before enrolling new codes!

  4. Q Is this compatible with Alexa? answer now
    Asked by Julia on November 19, 2020 7:40 AM

    This model cannot connect to Alexa or other smarthome controllers as this lock is not Z-Wave enabled.

  5. Q How do you know when you need to change batteries? answer now
    Asked by Carol K on November 18, 2020 2:34 PM

    There are two low battery indicators on the unit. The LED light on the interior side of the lock will flash red when the batteries are low. The keypad will also flash red when the batteries are low.

  6. Q How do I put in a new code? answer now
    Asked by Carol Osborne on July 19, 2020 10:24 PM

    Follow the below to enroll a new access code on the Smartcode 909:
    1.) Make sure the door is Open. Press the Program button the number of times that corresponds to the user code position being programmed (1-8).
    2.) Enter a new user code between 4 and 8 digits. Up to 8 codes can be enrolled at once.
    3.) Press the Lock button once.
    4.) One green flash with one beep indicates that the code has been successfully enrolled. Three red flashes mean that the code may already be enrolled or that the lock has reached its 16 code capacity.

  7. A

    The best childproofing for this kind of situation would be a double-sided keypad so that a code is needed to exit and to enter. For this model, if the child is tall enough to reach the manual knob, they may be able to unlock the deadbolt.

  8. A

    If three incorrect codes are entered within one minute, the lock will enter a 'lockout' state and deny all access for 60 seconds. 

  9. Q How do I lock from the outside of the home? answer now
    Asked by Dave on April 6, 2020 3:52 PM

    You will need to press the lock button on the keypad to secure the door.

  10. A

    This lock can be programmed to accept the same codes as your other doors. If you would like your current manual key to operate this lock as well, the unit will need to be rekeyed prior to shipping.
