Where Is The Program Button On A Kwikset Lock?

Kwikset locks have a program button on the side of the lock. You can press it with a pen or paper clip to open the door. The location of the program button varies depending on the model of Kwikset lock you have:

  1. Sometimes, like with the SmartCode 912 and 910, there’s a small button next to the lock. Most of the time, the three dots on the button are painted red, blue, and yellow.
  2. If you have a SmartCode 914 or 913 lock, the program button is on the side of the lock’s faceplate. If you look at it from the outside, it’s usually in the upper left corner, but if there isn’t enough room at one end, it might be in the middle.

How to Add A User Code When Master Code is Enabled?

On a Kwikset Smart Lock, you can add a user code when the master code is either enabled or disabled. So we will first learn how to add a user code when the master code is enabled:

  1. Always make sure that the door is wide open to avoid yourself being locked out.
  2. Now press the program button to put the lock in programming mode. This will set off the check mark to light five times accompanied by five beeps.
  3. Now input the master code and hit the button with lock symbol one time only.
  4. You will have to add the new user code (4 to 8 Digits) and then again hit the lock button.

Now if you see the check mark light and make a beep, it will confirm that the new user code has been added to the lock successfully. Just to be sure test the code if it unlocks the door or not.

Keep in Mind that if the lock flashes Three “X” pattern along with three beeps it means that the user code is not added. If this happens you have to again add the user code and the latter user code must be different from the former one.

  2. Input the new user code (4 -8 Digits) and hit the lock symbol.
  3. If the above process was successful, the check mark will light along with a beep. Make sure to test the code to see if it really works.

Unique Features Of Kwikset Smart Locks

When Kwikset makes their new line of smart locks, they use some cool new technologies to make their goods even more useful and easy to use. These locks are unique because of the following:

1. Smartphone Control

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology is used by all Kwikset smart locks to link to your phone. This means that you can use an app on your phone to control them from afar. You can lock and open your door from anywhere, see at any time who has entered or left your home, and set different settings for friends or family members. There are three types that can have this feature: Kevo (keypad), Kevo Plus (touchscreen), and Kevo Leak+.

2. Automatic Lock & Unlock

When you come home and unlock your door with your smartphone, the Kwikset smart lock remembers this event and automatically re-locks itself after 30 seconds of inactivity so you don’t have to worry about locking up when you go inside or coming back out again later on.
