An electronic lock failing can cause you all sorts of problems. It can prevent your safe from locking securely, or it can prevent the door from locking as you leave your home. Like with a traditional lock, you will be left trying to figure out how to quickly solve the problem so you can go about your day as normal.
Here are a few things you can do if your electronic lock fails.
Check the Battery Life
There are many electronic or smart locks that run on batteries. If your lock is not working in the way you expect it to, it could be that the battery is low or dead. So, before calling out a locksmith in a panic, check to see if your battery is dying or dead.
Check the Battery Amp
If the electronic lock is not working and the battery is fairly new, you will want to check the amp on the battery. It is possible that you are using a battery that does not have a sufficient amp to work with your electronic lock. If this is the case, you may need to replace the battery with another.
Go the Traditional Route
When purchasing their electronic locks, some people have bought a lock that works alongside a traditional keyhole. If this is the case for you then you can relax a little. Start by using your traditional lock then call out a locksmith at your leisure. Having the option to go traditional means you have more time to solve the electronic issue.
Call the Locksmith
If it is not the battery then you may have a faulty lock, or part of the lock inside may have worn out. Either way, your locksmith is in the best position to understand what the problem is and put it right quickly and professionally.
