Keyless Entry System Installation Austin. Due to the fact that the popularity of smart home technology has increased throughout the last ten years, there has been a wave of products that have been designed to make your daily life much more simple, with one category including keyless entry systems.
One of the most stressful situations that any homeowner can deal with is getting locked out of their home; however, if you have a keyless entry system installed, you will be able to prevent this from happening, as you will no longer need any physical house keys.
Here are the steps involved with properly installing a keyless entry system.
*First and foremost, begin by removing both the old deadbolt and door knob from the inside of the door itself using a screwdriver. Once these have been removed, set them aside. When the old lock has been removed, unbox your keyless system before then organizing all of the components.
*The next step is to determine what the backset of your door is. Generally defined, this is the distance from the door edge to the center of the deadbolt hole.
*Next, install your new deadbolt into the door. Once this is done, align the keypad of your new touchscreen, as well as make sure that all of the wiring passes under the deadbolt itself. Your deadbolt should be in a horizontal and unlocked position, and once there, you should then remove the interior mounting plate from the locking mechanism itself before then attaching it to the keypad with the long set screws. This will make sure that the wiring remains off to the side. Once this is done, remove the battery cover located in the interior latch before then attaching the wire harness to the back of the latch. Next, mount the latch to the mounting plate before then ensuring that the latch pin slides into the horizontal slit located in the deadbolt.
*Your next step will be to program your custom access code. Before this can be done, make sure that you have inserted batteries into the battery compartment itself, and from there, follow are included instructions in order to set your lock code.
*Next, install your new doorknob and strike plates. Take the time to ensure that your replacements of these correctly align with the positions of your old ones.
*Finally comes testing both the door and the lock. This is to ensure that everything is working properly and that you haven’t made any mistakes during the installation process itself.
