No. Schlage electronic locks are battery operated. You’ll simply route the lock’s existing wiring through the bore hole in your door to connect the exterior keypad or touchscreen with the interior thumbturn , install the batteries and you’re connected.

All you need for installation is a Phillips head screwdriver and a measuring tape or ruler to prepare your door before installation. Find more pre-installation tips at Schlage.com.
