500 Series Deadbolt - Handing the Lock (openEDGE Residential Grade - 5i RG)

Set Handing (5i Deadbolt Model Only)

Deadbolt Door Handing: Handing provides directional instructions to the deadbolt so that it will correctly lock and unlock. Programming is required during initial setup and after a factory reset.

This is step 6 from the 5i deadbolt installation manual: https://support.remotelock.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001749732-5i-Deadbolt-Installation

IMPORTANT: Before your 5i deadbolt lock will function, you must set the handing on the door. Because the lock can work on a right or left handed door, it needs to be told which direction to turn to lock and which to unlock.

Ensure the deadbolt is in the unlocked position.

To set your lock’s handing enter 0, followed by the LockState button.

When the code is entered correctly you will see two green flashes and hear two beeps.

A. Place the deadbolt in the unlocked position.

B. Enter 0 > LockState Button

If this sequence does not work: enter the lock's Programming Code, LockState Button, 140, LockState Button.

The default programming code is 123456 but this will be reset after 24 hours of connecting your lock for the first time.

Example sequence: 123456, LockState, 140, LockState

You should see 2 green flashes and hear 2 beeps.

To confirm handing was completed, hit the "LockState" button to ensure the deadbolt activates. Use the pre-programmed local code (1234 > LockState) or the knob turn to retract the deadbolt. The local code 1234 will be deleted after 24 hours of initial connection or after the first user code is added.
