A new set of good quality alkaline batteries is expected to last approximately 12 months with standard use. You will be alerted with fast beeps (upon using the lock) when the batteries are running low and need to be replaced. You will, likewise, be alerted with an icon in your app.
NOTE: Standard use is defined as 20 cycles per day. This is equivalent to using the lock 20 times daily.
There will be situations where the life of the batteries will differ from the expected 12-months as there are other factors that affect battery consumption:
- Type of Lock Operation: Is lock being used as stand-alone unit (keypad only, or with app using Bluetooth), or is it paired with a Wi-Fi Bridge?
- Lock Functions commonly used: Do you use Passage Mode often? Or do you use the Dead Lock function more?
- Other Functionalities enabled: Do you have the volume on OFF or HIGH? Do you have the Auto-Lock function enabled?
- Environmental Factors: Extreme cold and humidity shorten the life of the batteries.
