Auto Unlock

With the Auto Unlock feature the Danalock V3 will detect your arrival and unlock the door when you get home.

We make use of the GPS geofence feature in your mobile phone to sense when you are getting home. Once inside your home zone the app will start looking for your lock and unlock it when you get within Bluetooth® range.

You'll have to leave your home zone and re-enter it, in order for the Auto Unlock to run again.

How to set it up

Take a look at our Auto Unlock guide to learn more about it, and to learn how to activate the feature.


Circumstances beyond Danalock's influence such as phone model and OS setup, GPS, BLE, and environment can affect the functionality and behavior of the Auto Unlock feature and cause it to fail. Learn more in the "How to set it up" section above.

Auto Lock

With the Auto Lock feature the Danalock V3 will automatically lock the door for you a set amount of time after it has been unlocked. You can specify the duration the Danalock V3 should wait before locking the door.

Setting up Auto Lock

Make sure that you are near your Danalock V3. In the settings menu of your lock, in the Danalock app, navigate to the feature Auto Lock. Choose the amount of time the Danalock should wait before locking the door.

If you also active the Feature "Hold Back Latch" you must set the Auto Lock to a longer duration.

Hold Back Latch

With this feature, the Danalock V3 can open doors without an external door handle. The Danalock V3 will hold back the latch after unlocking the door to allow entrance.

Setting up Hold Back Latch

Make sure that you are near your Danalock V3. In the setting menu of your lock, in the Danalock app, navigate to the feature Hold Back Latch. Choose the amount of time you want the Danalock to hold back the latch before releasing it.

If you also activate the feature Auto Lock you must set the Auto lock to a longer duration than the Hold Back Latch feature.

End to End Operation

The End to End Operation mode is made to support a certain type of lock where the outside part and inside part of the cylinder are not connected. This means that turning the key won’t rotate the Danalock V3, which makes it unable to know if the door is locked or unlocked.

When in this mode, the Danalock V3 operates the lock cylinder by turning in one direction until it reaches the end. Every time the lock unlocks the lock will re-set the correct calibration and set the state of the lock. But if the lock is locked with the key, the Danalock will display the wrong status!

Do I need End to End operation?

Open the door, insert the key, and turn it. If the thumbturn on the inside of the door doesn’t rotate along with the key, you need to enable End to End Operation.

Be aware that the inside needs to rotate all the way to the unlocked point and the Danalock app needs to show that the state changes - if that doesn't happen, then activate the End to End Operation feature.

Setting up End to End Operation

Make sure that you are near your Danalock V3. In the setting menu of your lock, in the Danalock app, navigate to the feature End to End Operation. Activate it. Notice the warning about the need for Automatic calibration. Manual calibration of the lock will not work correctly.

To be sure that the lock is correctly calibrated, please do an Automatic calibration.

Paired Devices

If you have a Danapad or Danabridge you can pair them with your Danalock.

If you haven't already added them to your account, then you need to do so first. During that process, you can also pair them with the lock directly.

If the devices have already been added to your account, then go to the lock or Danapad/Danabridge settings to pair the devices.

In order to remove the pairing, simply go to either the lock settings and choose Remove pairing, or go to the Danapad/Danabridge settings and choose Remove pairing.
