Getting started with the app
Creating a user
When you open the app for the first time, you will be prompted to either log in or create a user.
The keychain is where you find the locks you have access to. You can swipe left and right between your locks if you own more than one. Use the lock buttons in the bottom of the keychain to perform lock or unlock operations.
When you log in for the first time you won’t have any Danalock devices associated with your keychain.
Add a Danalock to your keychain
To add a Danalock device to your keychain, go to MENU in the bottom navigation bar and press ADD DEVICE. Your phone now scans the area for available devices and presents a list for you to choose from. The icons indicate the type of device:
|Universal Module V3|
|Universal Module V2|
Press the lock you want to install. The app will connect and add the Danalock device to your keychain.
Calibrate your lock
If the device you have added is a Danalock V3, you need to calibrate it. You can calibrate it either manually or automatically. Navigate to the keychain and make sure that it shows the lock you want to calibrate.
Press SETTINGS in the bottom navigation bar and select CALIBRATION on the settings list.
Choose between MANUAL CALIBRATION or AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION. Manual calibration will give you more nuanced control over the distance your Danalock V3 travels between locked and unlocked position.
Make sure that the Danalock V3 is mounted correctly. Leave the door open and lift the handle if necessary. Turn your Danalock V3 to the unlocked position and press the calibration button. The Danalock V3 will light up white while calibrating.
Turn the Danalock V3 to unlocked position and press the green button. Then turn the Danalock V3 to locked position and press the red button. You can press the blue button to test your calibration.
When the calibration is done your lock is ready. Your Danalock V3 can be configured further with the features found in the settings tab.
Inviting a guest
In the keychain of the app navigate to the Danalock V3 you want to invite to, and press USERS in the bottom navigation bar. Press the invite button to go to the invitation screen.
Select access level
Select the type of access you want your guest to have:
Permanent guests have access at all times, but can’t invite new guests. With this access type no time restrictions are required.
Temporary guests are given access in a single time interval. With this access type, you define the interval in which you want your guest to have access.
Set guest settings
Below the access level and time restrictions, you can specify other guest settings:
You can give your guest online access through Danabridge V3 if your lock has been set up for this.
You can turn on usage notifications if you want to be notified when the user operates the lock.
You can invite your guests in three different ways:
Invite by sharing a link
This will generate a hyperlink that you can share with the guest. Note that the link can only be activated once and can thus only be used to invite one guest.
Invite by email
Enter the email of the guest you want to invite. The Danalock App will take you directly to your preferred mail application and generate the invitation. Send the mail to invite your guest.
Invite by Danalock username
Enter the username of the guest you want to invite. Your guest will receive the invitation directly in the Danalock App.
You can easily monitor and manage the guests for your Danalock devices. Navigate to the Danalock device you want to manage in the keychain and press USERS in the bottom navigation bar. Here you can see the guest list for your Danalock device along with additional details about each guest.
On the list you can see each of your guests along with a set of icons. Each icon gives information about what kind of access the guest has.
|The loudspeaker icon indicates that you will receive a notification when this guest operates the Danalock.|
|The bridge icon indicates that the guest can control the Danalock remotely via the Danabridge .|
|The house means permanent access, the clock means temporary access|
Change guest access
To change the access settings for one of your guests, tap the guest on the list, make the desired changes and press save in the bottom of the screen.
To remove one of your guests from your guest list, tap the guest on the list, make the desired changes and press save in the bottom of the screen.

Danalock V3 features
The Danalock V3 has many features you can use to customize your lock*.
With the Auto Unlock feature the Danalock V3 will detect your arrival and unlock the door when you get home.
The Auto Unlock feature uses GPS geofence to sense when you are getting home. When you enter the Auto Unlock Zone, which is around 50 to 1000 meters (164 - 3281 feet) from your lock, the Danalock App will start looking for your Danalock V3 and unlock it when you get within Bluetooth® range.
After the Danalock App has unlocked your door, it will not perform any auto unlock actions until you leave the Auto Unlock Zone completely and re-enter it.
Setting up auto unlock
Make sure that you are near your Danalock V3 and have location services turned on. Navigate to the lock you want to set up in your keychain and press SETTINGS. In the settings menu, press AUTO UNLOCK and turn the slider on.
In the auto unlock settings view you can configure auto unlock further to fit your needs. You can redefine the geofence radius and setup enter and exit notifications.
With the Auto Lock feature the Danalock V3 will automatically lock the door for you a set time after it has been unlocked. You can specify the duration the Danalock V3 should wait before locking the door.

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. This also means that the Danalock V3 is unable to display your current lock state in this mode.
Do I need End to End Operation?
Open the door, insert the key and turn it. If the thumb turn on the inside of the door doesn’t rotate along with the key, you need to enable End to End Operation.
Setting up End to End Operation
