Danalock V2 smart lock

Danalock V2

What do I do if I have lost my Bluetooth connection?

If your phone can’t connect to your lock via Bluetooth, try closing the app, turning off Bluetooth on your phone, and waiting for 10 seconds before turning it back on. Now restart the app and try to connect. If your phone still can’t connect to your lock, try turning off Bluetooth and restarting your phone. When your phone boots up, activate Bluetooth again and restart the Danalock app.

How do I reset my Danalock V2?

First, delete the lock from the app. Go to your app and log in, select “Device” and then “Delete Device”. Confirm the deletion by selecting OK.

When the lock is deleted from the Danalock app, run a security key reset on the lock by placing your finger on the button in the center of the lock for five beeps and then letting go. Wait for one minute and then run a factory reset by placing your finger on the center button of the lock for 10 beeps. The Danalock has now been reset. After resetting, wait for two minutes before reinstalling the lock. If you have a V1 lock, remember to set the lock into Inclusion mode by selecting the center button for three beeps before reinstalling.

When you are ready, reinstall the lock as described in the Danalock App User Guide.

What do I do if my Danalock V2 indicates that it already has an owner?

Please contact Support with the following information: Your username, proof of purchase, and the lock’s MAC number (which can be located by searching for the lock with the Danalock app). If you can’t find the MAC number, send a photo of the inside of the lock (the green circuit board behind the front cover), and we may be able to locate the number. Our Support Team will confirm your ownership and reset the lock.

How do I invite guests?

You can invite users to join your domain by either inviting them from your Danalock app or via My.Danalock.com (from computer or tablet). Navigate to the Danalock smart lock you want to invite to at press USERS (in the app) or NEW (on my.danalock).

You can choose between three types of access:

  • Permanent
  • Temporary
  • Recurring (available from My.danalock only)

We have written about inviting guests and the flow of inviting in Danalock basic app guide and Danalock invitation flow guide that you can locate and download here

Does the Danalock fit my door?

The Danalock is made to fit standard doors worldwide. The three most common types of cylinders are oval lock cylinders, drop-shaped euro cylinders, and deadbolt locks.

If the thumb turn cannot be removed from your cylinder, it will have to be replaced with one that has a tailpiece (available for purchase with the Danalock).

The Danalock will not fit on surface-mounted door locks or mortise cylinder locks.

If you are unsure whether the Danalock will fit your door, download and print a template of the Danalock mounting plates. If the screw holes on one of them match your door, the Danalock will fit. Please note: the template must be printed at 100% scale.

For more information, feel free to contact your local Danalock reseller or our Support department. We’re here to help.

How do I set up Auto Unlock?

The Auto Unlock feature uses GPS to detect your arrival and automatically unlocks the door for you.

The Danalock can be set from a 200-meter and up to a 2000-meter radius zone for auto unlocking (Depending on phone brand).

When you enter the Auto unlock zone, the Danalock app will start looking for the lock.
On iOS phones, you can set how long the app will look for the phone.

Once the Danalock app has unlocked your door, it will not unlock it again, until you have left and reentered the Auto Unlock Zone. This is to avoid accidental unlocking while you are home.

Please note: For the Danalock V3 HomeKit version, only Apple’s automation features are available. Read our comparison of versions at the bottom of the page.

Setting up Auto Unlock:

Ensure that GPS/ location functionality on your phone is turned on and that you are within range of your Danalock.

In the Danalock app, navigate to the lock you want to unlock automatically and select “Device/Settings”.

Choose the Auto Unlock option, slide to activate. Once the GPS has located your position, select “Save”. The purple area on the map is your Auto Unlock Zone.

You can adjust the geofence radius and activate or deactivate notifications for entering/exiting Auto Unlock Zone. When you leave this zone and enter it again, the Danalock app will search for your Danalock and unlock it. We recommend a zone no smaller than 500 meters – in some cases even working better on 1000 meters.

Auto Unlock tips and tricks

My Danalock will not auto unlock.

If your Danalock doesn’t unlock when you enter the Auto Unlock Zone, please check the following.

  • In the Danalock app, ensure that Auto Unlock functionality is turned on and that the Auto Unlock Zone is correctly located.
  • On Android phones, try calibrating your GPS – this is in most phones done in the Google Maps app.
  • On some phones, especially Samsung, battery optimization can affect the Auto Unlock feature. We suggest turning off battery optimization for the Danalock app.

The tips and tricks below can help with issues with the Auto Unlock feature:

Location Permission:
On both Android and iOS devices – make sure that the app has location permission set to “Always allow”.

On Android devices, you normally go to the “settings” and look for “Apps”.
In the list of apps, scroll down to and select the Danalock app.
Look for “Permissions” or like and that the location permission to “Always” or like.

On iOS devices, go to “settings”, scroll down to and select the Danalock app, go to “Location” and make sure that “Allow location access” is set to “Always”. Also, make sure that “Precise Location” is turned on.

If Auto Unlock still doesn’t function, please be aware that poor location reception may affect the reliability of geofence functionalities. In some cases, turning on WI-FI will improve location accuracy and strengthen the reliability of the Auto Unlock function.
