1. Update your firmware

Firmware updates provide new features and enhancements to your Schlage Sense™ lock that make it even easier to keep your home safe. To make sure your lock has the latest firmware for enhancements and bug fixes, regularly use your Schlage Sense™ app to check for updates. 

To complete the update, your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® device must be connected to your lock over Bluetooth® for the duration of the update – usually about 15 minutes. When the lock has completed the update, the lock will flash red LEDs and beep to inform you the process is complete.

2. Share access to your home

The Schlage Sense™ app makes it easy to share and manage access to your home. The most convenient way to share access is to create an access code. Your guest can use that code on the lock’s touchscreen without worrying about having a compatible phone or app. As the homeowner, you’ll be able to see when your guest’s access code is used. Here’s how to add and remove access codes:

3. View lock activity

Would you like to know who has accessed your lock and when? Checking your lock activity is easy in the Schlage Sense™ app where you can view up to the last 100 events.

4. Create custom schedules

You may not want to give every guest 24/7 access to your lock. You can easily create a custom schedule that only allows a certain access code to be active during designated hours of the day or days of the week. This is perfect for housekeepers, dog walkers or any service personnel that may need repeat access.

5. Change auto-lock settings

Your Schlage Sense™ lock is equipped with an Auto- Lock feature that relocks the deadbolt after being unlocked for a certain period of time. With the Schlage Sense™ app, you can increase or decrease the Auto-Lock time to suit your preference or turn it off altogether. Here's how.

6. Add another administrator

You can give administrative control of your lock, and all the other HomeKit™-enabled accessories in your home, to other trusted members of your household. As long as they have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (latest version of iOS recommended) and an iCloud account, set-up is easy and allows them to manage access codes, see activity history, and manage all the features of the Schlage Sense™ lock. Here are the steps to invite someone to control the HomeKit-enabled accessories in your home:
