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 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 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. We recommend an zone no smaller than 500 meters – in some cases even working better on a 1000 meters.
