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

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 matches your door, the Danalock will fit. Please note: the template must be printed at 100% scale.

How do I set up and use Auto Unlock?

The Auto Unlock feature uses GPS to detect your arrival and automatically unlocks the door for you. The Danalock has a 300-meter to 2000-meter radius zone for auto unlocking, which you set while installing and configuring your Danalock app. When you are 40 to 50 meters from your Danalock, your smart phone will send periodic commands to unlock the door. If the app is unable to reach your Danalock within four minutes, the Auto Unlock command will time-out.

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 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”.
  • 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 geofence radius and activate or deactivate notifications for enter/exit Auto Unlock Zone. When you leave this zone and enter it again, the Danalock app will search for your Danalock and unlock it.

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.

If Auto Unlock still doesn’t work, check that the Danalock app has the permissions it needs:

  • Android devices: Go to the Settings menu and open the Application Manager. In the list, scroll down to and select the Danalock app. In the Permissions tab, ensure that Location is enabled. In the notifications tab, make sure that Allow Notifications is turned on.
  • iOS devices: Go to Settings, scroll down to and select the Danalock app to bring up Permissions. Ensure that Location is set to “Always” and that all notifications are allowed.

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.
