Programming your Schlage keyless entry lock constitutes an easy, straightforward process that takes only a few minutes to accomplish. You can also program multiple entry codes at any given time, creating temporary access for babysitters or visiting families without revealing your family's personal entry code. You can easily delete temporary codes when they're no longer necessary. Changing the code on your Schlage keyless entry requires only the push of a few buttons and a few minutes of your time.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate and write down your Schlage keyless entry's six-digit programming code. If you haven't reprogrammed the original programming code, look for it on either the yellow stick on your Schlage keyless entry's installation instructions or the back side of the deadbolt lock.

  2. 2

    Enter the six-digit programming code using the number keys on your Schlage keypad. Wait for the "Schlage" button to flash amber and beep three times. The "Schlage" button will remain illuminated in amber to indicate it's ready for reprogramming.

  3. 3

    Press the "Schlage" button and the number "1" button simultaneously to add a new entry code. Wait for the "Schlage" button to beep and flash three times.

  4. 4

    Enter a new four-digit code, and wait for the "Schlage" button to flash and beep three times. Re-enter the same four-digit code to confirm the change. The "Schlage" button will beep a long beep and flash green to indicate a successful reprogramming.

  5. 5

    Repeat Step 2. Press the "Schlage" button and the number "2" button simultaneously to remove a previous entry code; the "Schlage" button will flash and beep three times. Enter your previous four-digit entry code; the "Schlage" button will flash and beep three times. Re-enter the four-digit entry code for confirmation; the "Schlage" button will beep one long beep and flash green, indicating a successful deletion of your previous entry code.

Tips and warnings

  • Never give out your entry code. Instead, set up temporary entry codes to give people, such as a babysitter or a home repair service, temporary access to your home. Delete the entry code as soon as you no longer require temporary access.
