Forgetting your PIN or letting the battery die are the only ways an electronic deadbolt will lock you out; however, with all of Schlage's electronic offerings, there's the option of using a back-up mechanical key to gain access or as with the Schlage Touch, a 9V battery. We recommend choosing a PIN that is both easy to remember and secure. Be sure to store your PIN in a safe location - hidden within your phone or written down where you won't lose it. Here are some tips on creating a safe and secure access code
for your lock. In the event that your battery is running low, Schlage's electronic locks will issue a low battery warning well in advance so you'll have plenty of time to make the switch. To avoid the risk altogether, we recommend changing your battery once every year when you change the battery in your smoke detector.
