Modifying the 6-Digit Default Programming Code

Every Schlage Lock device features a default six-digit programming code, used to set and change the keypad lock and unlock other device features. After resetting the device, the lock code reverts to this default six-digit programming code. To ensure top-level security, it’s vital to change this code immediately after resetting.

To do so, enter the six-digit code on the keypad and wait for the Schlage button to emit an orange light three times, along with three beeps. After that, press the Schlage button again, followed by the number 3 key on the lock keypad. Again, wait for the button to flash orange and beep three times.

At this point, you can input a new six-digit programming lock code. Upon completion, the Schlage button will flash orange once more, and a beep will sound, indicating the code is registered. Re-enter your new code for confirmation. When the Schlage button turns green and a long beep is heard, your new code is confirmed.

Delete the Default User Codes

Schlage locks come with two four-digit default user codes. If you want to delete these and replace them with new ones, start by entering your programming code on the Schlage keypad. Once the Schlage button turns orange three times, accompanied by three beeps, press the Schlage button.

Press the 6 key on the keypad and wait for the Schlage button to flash orange and beep three times. At this point, enter your programming code to remove the default four-digit user codes.

Now, to add new user codes, enter your programming code on the keypad and wait for the Schlage button to turn orange and beep three times. Press the 1 key on the keypad, and then wait for the Schlage button to flash orange and beep three times. Input your new four-digit user code, wait for the Schlage button to flash orange and beep, then re-enter the new code. The device will flash green and beep to confirm the successful addition of your new user code.
