How To Program Schlage BE365 Keypad Deadbolt

The Schlage BE365 Residential Deadbolt is by far the most common deadbolt that you can find in homes today. The reason why I say it is because it is battery operated and uses a 4-digit pin code. These are both very easy to program and will only use 4 AA and 1 9V batteries which are easier to find than some other types of deadbolts.

This guide will show you how to program a Schlage BE365 Keypad Deadbolt. You are requested to stick till the end as some important information will be conveyed.

Changing The Programming Code On A Schlage BE365 Keypad Deadbolt

The BE365 is great for people with small children, as they don’t have to worry about keeping track of tiny keys or their children being locked out in the cold. However, sharing the code with friends and family can be a bit tricky. If you’ve got an older code that you want to change, it’s not hard at all. Simply follow these simple steps:

  1. On the outside of the deadbolt, press the “Schlage” button and hold it down until the red light turns green.
  2. Enter your four-digit code into the keypad on the exterior side of your lock. You will hear a single beep when it accepts your input.
  3. Enter a new four-digit code twice more, followed by pressing the “Schlage” button again to confirm your changes have been made successfully!

1. The lock is in programming mode.

2. There’s a problem with one or more batteries.

3. The motor doesn’t work properly.
