Do you want to activate the Bold Smart Cylinder without using your cell phone? Then you can use the practical, unique backup PIN that Bold developed.

In the settings screen of the Bold Smart Lock app, you can enable the backup PIN. You can choose your own personal 5-digit pin code. You can create up to 3 different pin codes. As you create a PIN for a specific Bold Smart Cylinder, you can’t assign it to other individuals. Of course, you get to decide with whom you share your PIN.

You only need to be near the Bold Smart Cylinder to change the PIN settings. Entering the PIN can be done without your phone near the lock. 

To enter the PIN, you should alternately turn left and right when entering the digits. It doesn’t matter if you start on the left or right, as long as you change direction after each digit. Make sure you don’t wait too long between entering digits. If you’ve entered the right PIN, you will hear two short beeps, after which the lock will be activated. If you’ve entered the wrong PIN, you will hear one beep. In that case, the lock won’t be activated.

Watch the video below to see how you should enter the PIN.
