How do I reset my Z-Wave Schlage?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To reset your Z-Wave Schlage lock to factory default settings, follow these steps:

1. Power down the lock: Locate the lock on your door and remove the battery cover. Take out the batteries from the lock to completely power it down. Make sure to wait a few moments before proceeding to the next step.

2. Prepare for reset: While the lock is still without batteries, locate the Schlage button on the front of the lock. This button is usually located above the keypad or on the side of the lock. It may be labeled with the Schlage logo or simply as a button.

3. Apply power and hold the button: With the batteries removed, hold down the Schlage button. While holding it down, insert the batteries back into the lock. Ensure that you continue to press and hold the button throughout this process.

4. Observe the blinking lights: As you apply power to the lock, you will notice the lock’s LED lights start to blink. Keep holding the Schlage button until the lights blink three times. This blinking is an indication that the reset process has been successful.

5. Release the button and reconfigure: Once you see the three blinks, you can release the Schlage button. The lock is now reset to its factory default settings. You will need to reconfigure the lock by connecting it to your Z-Wave network or programming new access codes.

Note: It’s important to mention that performing a factory reset will erase all codes and settings on the lock. This means that any previously programmed access codes will be deleted, and you will need to set them up again. Additionally, if the lock was connected to a Z-Wave network, it will be disconnected and will need to be reconnected.

Resetting your Z-Wave Schlage lock to factory default settings is a straightforward process. By following the steps mentioned above, you can easily reset the lock and start fresh with new configurations or access codes.
