Changing the Programming Code on Your Taymor Electronic Deadbolt

First, we’ll discuss how to program your deadbolt using a code book. Then, we’ll go over how to use a visual programming interface. Finally, we’ll go over how to program your deadbolt using the mobile app.

If you don’t have a code book or don’t know how to use one, you can always use a visual programming interface to program your deadbolt. You’ll need to have a smart phone or tablet with an app installed on it. Once you have the app, simply follow the instructions below.

Step 1: Open the Door

Before you begin, you’ll need to open the door. The easiest way to do this is to turn the deadbolt all the way in, then turn the knob on the deadbolt. If the door is already open, simply turn the knob and the deadbolt will open.

Step 2: Turn the Deadbolt All the Way In

If you’re programming a new lock, you’ll need to open the deadbolt to change the programming code. Simply turn the deadbolt all the way in.

In contrast, if you’re programming an existing lock, you’ll need to unlock the deadbolt first. Then, you’ll be able to turn the deadbolt all the way in.

Step 3: Press the “Program” Button

After you’ve opened the deadbolt, you’ll need to press the “Program” button.

Step 4: Set the Code

You’ll be asked to enter a new code.

Step 5: Confirm the Code

Press the “Confirm” button to confirm the code.

Deleting Existing User Codes

First, we’ll discuss how to delete existing user codes from your deadbolt. Then, we’ll go over how to use a visual programming interface. Finally, we’ll go over how to delete user codes using the mobile app.

If you don’t have a code book or don’t know how to use one, you can always use a visual programming interface to delete user codes. You’ll need to have a smart phone or tablet with an app installed on it.

The Taymor Electronic Keypad Deadbolt comes with a preset User Code (1234). And you need to delete this code and add your own codes to ensure security.

Here’s how to delete the preset User Code or any existing User Code on your Taymor Electronic Lock:

  1. Enter your current Programming Code and press the Taymor button.
  2. Press 2 and then press the Taymor button.
  3. Enter the preset User Code (1234) or any User Code you want to delete and press the Taymor button.

Note: You can also use this method to delete the User Codes you created—as explained above.

More so, the lock allows you to delete all existing User Codes (including the ones you created) at once. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Enter your Programming Code and press the Taymor button.
  2. Press 3 and then press the Taymor button—to delete all existing User Codes.

Creating New User Codes

If you’re creating new User Codes, you’ll need to follow these steps:

Enter your Programming Code and press the Taymor button.

Press 1 and then press the Taymor button.

Enter the code you want to use and press the Taymor button.

The next section will discuss how to program a new code using a code book or visual programming interface.

As you probably know, you can’t unlock your door via the keypad without User Codes. So you’ll need to create User Codes that can be used to unlock the lock through the keypad. The lock allows you to create and save up to 6 User Codes as discussed here.

That said, here’s how to create new User Codes on your Taymor Electronic Deadbolt:

  1. Enter your current Programming Code and press the Taymor button.
  2. Press 1 and then press the Taymor button.
  3. Enter a new User Code (4 to 10 digits) and press the Taymor button.

If the lock blinks green three times and flashes three times, it means the new User Code has been successfully added. You may, however, test it to see if it unlocks the lock.

Repeat the steps to add more User Codes. But keep in mind that the lock can only store 6 programming codes at a time. If you’ve added up to 6 codes, you’ll have to delete an existing code to add another.

How to Lock/Unlock Your Taymor Electronic Deadbolt Programming

Insert the key into the lock cylinder and turn it to the unlocked position

Note: If you have trouble getting the key into the lock cylinder, try putting the key in the lock cylinder from the back side.

Here’s how to lock and unlock your Taymor Electronic Deadbolt using the keypad:

Step 1: Enter your Programming Code and press the Taymor button.

Press 1 and then press the Taymor button.

  • To Lock: Press the Taymor button or use a physical key to lock from outside. And to lock from inside, simply turn the thumb-turn.
  • To Unlock: Enter a valid User Code and press the Taymor button, or use a physical key to unlock from the outside. From inside, turn the thumb-turn to unlock the deadbolt.

 Enabling Auto-Lock on Your Taymor Electronic Lock

The Taymor Electronic Lock has a built-in auto-lock function. When the electronic lock is enabled, the lock can be unlocked using a code entered in the keypad or through a radio frequency (RF) transceiver. When the electronic lock is disabled, the keypad or RF transceiver must be used to unlock the lock. The locking and unlocking functions can be configured to require different levels of access.

When the electronic lock is enabled, the keypad or RF transceiver must be used to unlock the lock.

  1. Enter your Programming Code and press the Taymor button.
  2. Press 5 and then press the Taymor button.
  3. Now the auto-lock feature is enabled, meaning your lock will lock automatically after 30 seconds—when you leave it unlocked.

To disable auto-lock, repeat the steps above.

Note that 30 seconds is the default delay time. You can change it to your preferred delay time (10 to 99 seconds) if you want to. Here’s how to set the delay time:

  1. Enter your Programming Code and press the Taymor button.
  2. Press 6 and then press the Taymor button.
  3. Enter your preferred delay time (10-99 seconds) and press the Taymor button.

Now your lock will auto-lock based on the delay time you set.

Resetting Your Taymor Electronic Deadbolt

If you accidentally set a User Code that doesn’t work, you can reset the lock to the default programming code. Here’s how:

Enter your Programming Code and press the Taymor button.

Press 2 and then press the Taymor button.

Enter your current programming code and press the Taymor button.

Note: If the lock blinks green three times and flashes three times, it means the default User Code has been successfully added.

 As a result, the lock will be locked with the default programming code.

Now, if you need to add a new User Code, follow the steps above to add a new code.

If you’re having issues with your lock, performing a factory reset usually helps to fix some issues. Also, if you’ve lost your Programming Code or User Codes, you can reset the lock and then reprogram it using the default Programming Code (0000).

But note that resetting the lock will remove all your custom settings and you’ll have to start all over to program it—as you did when you just installed the lock.

With that being said, here’s how to reset your Taymor Electronic Keypad Deadbolt:

  1. On the interior assembly of your lock, remove the battery cover and locate the Reset button (labeled “R”).
  2. Press and hold the Reset button for about 5 seconds until you hear three long beeps.

Now your lock is reset. Replace the battery cover and ensure you perform the automatic bolt direction adjustment before programming any other functions into the lock. See how to perform the bolt direction process in paragraph 3 (above).
