Programming Your Door Knob Codes

Your Honeywell Electronic Door Lock offers the convenience of customizable user codes. You can set up individual codes for multiple users, making it perfect for families or shared spaces. Here's how:

Changing the Programming Code (PC) 

Start with the default Programming Code (PC) of 123456 and follow these steps:

  • Enter (PC) + (Unlock Button) + 4 + (Unlock Button) + (New 6 digit PC of your choice) + (Unlock Button) + Re-enter New PC + (Unlock Button).
  • Remember to keep track of your new code for future reference.

Adding a New User Code (UC) 

You can add up to 50 new user codes, each linked to a User ID (ID) between 01-50. To add a new user code, follow these steps:

  • Enter (PC) + (Unlock Button) + 1 + (Unlock Button) + (User ID) + (Unlock Button) + (User Code) + (Unlock Button) + Re-enter User Code + (Unlock Button).
  • Your User Code is now set, and the default factory code (1234) is deleted for added security.

Deleting User Codes

Managing your user codes is essential for maintaining security. Here's how to delete user codes:
