How do I operate my lock remotely?
You can unlock the Danalock with the Danalock app when in Bluetooth range. With the Danabridge hardware, you can monitor and control your lock from anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. The Danabridge hardware will substitute the Danabridge app.
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 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.
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.
For more information, feel free to contact your local Danalock reseller or our Support department. We're here to help.

How do I invite guests?
To invite a new guest to use your lock, navigate to the lock you want the guest to have access to and select “Lock users”. Select “Invite guest” and choose what kind of access you want your guest to have.
There are two types of guest access: permanent and temporary.
A permanent guest has unlimited access to the lock. A temporary guest is given one-time access for a limited duration of time. When you have chosen the access type for your guest, choose whether you wish to receive notifications when your guest uses your lock, and whether you want to give your guest remote access to your Danalock through the Danabridge app.
Finally, choose the mode for inviting your guest. If your guest is already a Danalock user, you can invite them directly in the Danalock app by selecting the Danalock icon at the bottom left. Select the SMS icon to send the invitation by SMS. Select "Share" at the bottom right to see additional invitation options. Your options will depend on which apps you have installed on your device. Once you have made your selection, the invitation is sent automatically.
If your guest is already a Danalock user and was invited directly through the app, the guest will automatically get access to your lock. If you used one of the other invitation options, your guest will receive a link prompting them to either log in with an existing account or to register a new one. If your guest does not have the Danalock app, they can follow the links in the bottom of the invitation or search “Danalock” in Google Play or App Store. When your guest has accepted your invitation, you will be able to see their username by selecting “Lock users” in the Danalock app.
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.
What should I do if I lose my phone?
