- Follow the Instructions for Installation:
Most Face Recognition Door Locks come with detailed instructions on how to install them. Make sure you follow these instructions carefully to avoid any damage to the lock or your door.
- Set up Your Smartphone:
Before you can use your facial recognition for door access, you will need to set up your smart phone. This usually involves downloading and installing the relevant app.
- Register Your Face:
Once you have installed the app, you will need to register your face. This is usually done by taking a photo of yourself using the front-facing camera on your Smartphone. Follow the instructions on the app to complete this process.
- Set up the Lock:
Install the batteries in the door lock. Once installed, open the app and create an account. When you’re setting up the account, you’ll be asked to create a 4-8 digit PIN code. This will be used as a backup in case you can’t use your phone to unlock the door.
- Add Users:
After you’ve set up the lock, you can add other users. To do this, open the app and go to the ‘Add User’ section. Here, you can either take a photo of the person or upload a photo from their social media account. The person will then need to confirm their identity by taking a selfie.
- Lock and Unlock the Door:
To lock the door, simply close it and the lock will automatically engage. To unlock the door, open the app and hold your phone up to the lock. The door will then unlock and you can enter your home.
- Check the Activity Log:
The app will keep a log of all the times the door has been locked and unlocked. You can view this log by opening the app and going to the ‘Activity’ section.
- Use the Backup PIN:
If you can’t use your phone to unlock the door, you can enter the backup PIN code that you created when you first set up the lock. To do this, press the ‘Lock’ button on the app and then enter the PIN code.
