Adding a New Access Code to your Schlage Deadbolt Lock

Locate The 6-Digit Programming Code

The first step you want to take is to locate the programming code. Your Schlage deadbolt lock has a preset programming code on a sticker on the back of your Schlage deadbolt lock assembly. The programming code will come in handy to put the deadbolt lock in the programming mode.

Once you have located the code, be sure to write it down somewhere because you will need it. Sometimes, this code is in the installation instruction. So, ensure you check the user manual and the deadbolt lock’s assembly for the programming code.

Enter the Programming Code 

The Schlage deadbolt lock has keypads for entering the programming code. But some models have a touchscreen keypad. They work the same, only that some keypads you press while others you touch. So, you will enter the programming code you wrote down not too long ago. Once you’ve entered this code, the Schlage button on your deadbolt lock will flash Orange thrice and also beep thrice.

The Schlage button will continue to illuminate, and this will be a sign that it’s in the reprogramming mode. You can then add a new access code to your Schlage deadbolt lock. You only need to proceed to the steps below.

Add a New Access Code

It is effortless to add a new access code to your Schlage deadbolt lock. You start by pressing the Schlage button and then press the number 1 button on the keypad. You will do this simultaneously. Wait for the Schlage button to flash and beep three times.

Then enter unique 4-8 digits access code. The more digits the access code has, the better your home security. So be sure to go for that maximum of an 8-digit access code to improve your home security. But choosing a 4-digit access code isn’t bad at all, only that it doesn’t provide as many layers of security to your smart home.

Wait for the Schlage button to flash and beep thrice again, then re-enter the access code you’ve just entered. Re-entering the access code is a confirmation of the access code you’ve selected. The Schlage button will have a long beep and flash green to indicate you’ve successfully added a new access code. At this point, you’ve successfully reprogrammed your Schlage deadbolt lock.
