hi dad where's joy from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about how to factory default a Kwikset SmartCode 916 lock now this lock is a z-wave lock there are many z-wave locks out there available in the market and if you're moving into a new place you may find that there's some actually installed on the doors whenever you you do encounter this though the existing z-wave controller or alarm system with the z-wave controller inside of it may be in the house or may not be in the house it could vary in change also the previous renter owner they may not know the codes inside of the lock or they may not be willing to give them to you so you may be in a situation where you have a lock you have the key for it but you don't know any of the programming in the lock and you don't and you're not able to include it to any of the controllers that you're installing in the house or get it to work with anything that's existing there in this situation it's best to do a factory default on the lock just to get it back to that fresh state as if it was right out of the box now each easy way of a lock that is out there they're likely going to have a different procedure to do the factory default on them none of them are difficult to do but they're all unique enough where that one likely isn't going to work on another lock manufacturer for example the one that we're going to do today on this Kwikset SmartCode 916 is a little different than the other ones that you'll see on other lock manufacturers really the best thing to do is that if you want to do a factory default on your lock check out the lock model number go online find the manual for it pull it up and check to see what the the factory default process is for that lock we have a lot of these manuals on our website wwlp.com and if we don't have them there's a good chance that we'll be able to help you figure out how to perform this function now this lock itself on the back of it you actually have to get inside of the lock to do the factory default and as you can see we've taken the screws out there's a screw thread on this side and there's a screw thread on this side some locks may be able to be factory defaulted without needing to use a screw driver but there's a good chance that you're going to need a Phillips head screw driver of some size likely going to be on the smaller size to do the factory default on the lock so again when you go to see the lock to check the model number of it just look around and see what you're gonna have to remove before you go to do the default just to make your life a little easier so on this quick set lock doing the factory default is pretty easy I've already removed the screws from the back plate so I'm just going to remove this put it to the side so what we're going to do is we're going to take out the battery pack we're going to press and hold the program button we're going to reinsert the battery pack the lock is going to beep the LEDs in a flash we're going to press the button again then the LED is going to flash red and green and then the locks going to go through it's handing process which is where it figures out which side the door jamb is on then the lock will be fully factory defaulted so take out the battery pack press and hold the program button there's still some power in the lock so I'm just gonna let go and press and hold it again I'm going to put the pack back in let go the button I'm going to press it one more time and as you can see the LED is flashing red and green [Music] and the locks just completed its handing process that's how you factory default a Kwikset SmartCode 916 lock if you do have any questions about this process though about z-wave locks in general you see you like compatibility how to get them to work with your controller oh 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 e-mail to support at alarm grid com2 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
