Your Danalock was engineered for easy installation. Depending on your door type, you will either have to attach a mounting plate to the door or replace your locking cylinder with one we provide. Your Danalock package will contain the necessary parts to install the Danalock in your region. Click to find video guides and installation manuals.
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.
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.

Danapad pin codes can be set remotely via My.Danalock.com. The Danabridge creates a connection between the Danalock and My.Danalock.com. Without Danabridge V3 you cannot use My.Danalock.com to administrate pin codes remotely. Pin codes can be set by the domain owner and created administrators.
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.

My Danalock will not auto unlock

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.

Not replacing all batteries at the same time can affect the batteries to heat and potentially cause them to explode. Danalock has no responsibility in any way if the replacement of batteries is done inaccurately.
