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.

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.
