In this post, I’ll walk you through the steps to program your new or existing OrangeIOT Keyless Entry Lock.
Sounds like what you’re looking for? Then let’s head right into it!
First off, if you’re not familiar with the keypad/button functions, see the image below.
Now let’s head over to the programming instructions, starting with how to change the default/current Master Code on your lock.
Change the Master Code on OrangeIOT keypad deadbolt
As you probably know, your new OrangeIOT Keyless Entry Lock comes with an 8-digit default Programming Code—12345678.
The code allows you to change your lock programming/settings. That is, to program your lock such as adding new User Codes or deleting existing codes, you’ll have to first enter the Master Code to gain access. And it’s recommended that you change the default Master Code to ensure security.
The said, here’s how to change the default/existing Master Code on your OrangeIOT Keyless Lock:
The Master Code will be changed successfully by the lock turning green.
Notification: Though the default Master Code is in a forward number sequence (12345678), you can’t change it to any forward, backward, or repeat number sequence. Take this example:
- Forward number sequence: 123456789—not supported.
- Backward number sequence: 987654322—not supported.
- Repeat number sequence: 33333333—not supported.
Your new code cannot contain an existing code sequence. For example, your Master Code may be 4325, you can’t change it to 432576 or 754325.
Your Master Code must be completely distinct from the existing one. Remember that repeat number sequences, such as forward, backward or repeated numbers, are not supported.
How to add a user code
A User Code is a 4- to 10-digit number that you can use to unlock the lock via keypad. Users can store upto 20 User codes, including a one time code.
Here’s how to add a User Code on your OrangeIOT Keypad Lock:
The lock will blink green to indicate that the process was successful. Now you’ve added a new User Code and you can use it to unlock the lock.
Notification: The lock doesn’t support User Codes with a forward, backward, or repeat number sequence. Your new User Code must not be identical to any existing User Code.
How to Create a Unique Code
A one-time User Code is possible to be created for guests and a repairman. You can create this code once for any guest or repairman you want to allow one-time entry to your home. The code can only be used once, as it automatically becomes invalid once it’s used to unlock the lock.
That said, here’s to create a one-time code on your OrangeIOT Keyless Entry Lock:
And that’s all about creating a one-time User Code.
How to delete a user code
Follow these steps to delete an existing code:
This will erase the User Code. You should, however, try to unlock the lock with the deleted User Code to confirm that it’s been deleted.
How to Disable/Enable Auto-Lock
After a time, the auto-lock feature locks the lock automatically. This feature locks your door automatically if you forget to lock it.
By default, the feature is disabled, so you’ll have to enable it yourself. Here’s how to enable the auto-lock feature:
To disable autolock, repeat the above steps but press 2 in the last step—instead of 1. For clarity, see the image below.
Auto-Lock Time-Delay Settings
OrangeIOT Lock lets you set your preferred time delay (10 to 99 seconds) before the lock automatically locks. Here’s how to set the time delay:
How to Disable or Enable Vacation Mode
Are you planning to travel for a long period of time? To negate all User Codes, you can turn on vacation mode in your OrangeIOT Lock. Vacation Mode will disable all User Codes, so that no one can unlock the lock using a User Code.
If you don’t want to delete User Codes, you can as well use vacation mode to temporarily disable all User Codes. During this time you can use your Master Code for unlocking the lock/door.
That said, here’s how to enable Vacation Mode on your OrangeIOT Keypad Lock:
To disable vacation mode, simply enter your current Master Code.
How to Lock/Unlock an OrangeIOT Keyless Entry lock
- To Unlock Enter your Master Code or valid User Code to open the door. Press the button. OrangeIOT button. To unlock from the interior, rotate the thumb turn.
- To Lock To lock the door from the outside, press the keypad and hold it for approximately 2 seconds. To lock from the inside turn the thumb turn until you reach lock position.
Notification: The lock has a key override feature that allows you to use a physical key for locking and unlocking the door.
How to Factory Reset the OrangeIOT Keyless Entry Lock
Follow these steps to factory reset your OrangeIOT keypad lock:
Your lock will now be reset. Remember that all of your previous programming, including User Codes or Master Codes will be lost. So you’ll have to start all over again to program the lock—using the default Master Code.
OrangeIOT keyless entry lock troubleshooting
Why can’t I change the existing Master Code nor add User Codes to my lock?
Changing Master Code or adding new User Codes on an OrangeIOT Keypad Deadbolt can be tricky—though the process seems to be straightforward.
Assuming you’re getting the steps correctly but still can’t change the existing Master Code or add new User Codes, check that you’re not entering unsupported number combinations.
The lock doesn’t support forward, backward, or repeat number sequences. Also, it doesn’t support a new code that contains an existing code sequence. See examples of unsupported number combinations above—in the Master Code changing section.
Why is my lock not working after installation?
Perhaps you didn’t perform the Door Handing Detection after installation. After first-time installation or when you restore factory default settings, it’s required that you run the Door Handing Detection for your lock to function correctly.
Here’s how to perform the Door Handing Detection on your OrangeIOT Keypad Lock:
- Step 1Remove the battery cover (on interior assembly) and insert 3 AA batteries.
- Step 2Using a pen or a paper clip, press the button and hold it down. Reset button.
- Step 3: Place the last batteries in the device while you are still holding it. Reset button. Continue holding down the Reset button till the lock beeps. The latch will extend to determine the orientation.
That’s all about performing the door handing detection.
Why can’t I lock/unlock the lock via the keypad?
This could occur if User Codes are disabled. Make sure that User Codes aren’t disabled. If it still doesn’t work, restore factory settings.
So that’s how to program your new or existing OrangeIOT Keypad Deadbolt.
To troubleshoot issues such as keypad not responding or no lights seen or beeps, simply restore factory default settings.
Also, if you can’t remember your Master Code, reset the lock and then reprogram it using the default Master Code—12345678.
