hi-de-ho iris joy from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about how to exclude a Kwikset SmartCode 916 lakh from a z-wave controller there's many instances where you may be looking to exclude a z-wave lock from the controller let's say you move into a new location to live and you find that there is an alarm system installed or a z-wave controller installed and there are z-wave locks on the doors that are connected to it me you may not want to use the existing alarm system or z-wave controller that's in the house as you may have your own and to get them onto your own system first you'll need to do an exclude also whenever you do include any zero device it's recommended to exclude it first as the device may have programming still in it from the factory or any tests that we're done on it before it was shipped out and if you don't clear out that programming first when you go to include the lock you may run into some issues as programming that's inside of z-wave devices closed cause problems when they do try to include to another controller doing an excluded will clear all of the existing programming from the lock and get it ready to be included to any controller excluded is different from factory defaulting excluding literally just has to do with the connection to it z-wave controller this isn't going to clear any of the code programming or any other information on the lock so if you are looking to clear the lock out 100% completely you'll want to do a factory default which is a different process today we're going to show you how to exclude the lock from an IQ - as it does have a built in z-wave controller and it's really easy to do all the z-wave locks that are out there likely have a different exclude function or a different process to exclude them from the controller as compared to other ones it's all a simple process but before you go ahead and do an exclusion on a lock you're going to want to go online find the manual for the lock and just check to see what the exact process is to make your life easy this lock it's really easy to do so on all you have to do is press the learn button once the system is in exclusion mode the learning button is right here on the back this backplate does have two screws that we've removed so that we can take it off so if we take the back plate off you'll see that there is a button right here with a on it this is the learn button for z-wave so after we get our controller into X illusion mode we're gonna click this button and it will exclude from the controller so now in my IQ 2 I'm just gonna go to exclusion mode so I'm gonna slide down from the top click on settings do advanced settings and then enter the default - 2 - 2 code I'm going to go to installation devices z-wave devices and then clear device now the system is in exclusion mode so back down on my lock I'm going to click the a button and as you can see or as you can hear the device was successfully excluded now this quick set wasn't included so what we literally just did was we performed an excluded on the on the lock and it cleared out all the z-wave programming that's in the lock now the lock is a hundred percent ready to be included to another z-wave controller and it should be good to go if you do have any questions about this process though about z-wave locks in general and see you a compatibility how to get them to work with your controller or really which one you should get feel free to reach out to us you can reach us on our website at wwlp.com give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven two eight or send us an email to support at alarm grid comm to enjoy the video feel free to subscribe and if you want to be notified when we post future videos hit the notification button below and we'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
