Sifely Smart Lock is not connecting to the app.

Sifely Smart Lock is not connecting to the app

You might have problems connecting the Sifely smart lock to your phone or app. Here are some possible reasons and solutions:

  • First, you must check that your mobile device and the lock are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If that doesn’t work, try restarting both devices and check for a problem with your internet connection or router settings.
  • Make sure that you have already paired your mobile device with the lock. It should be connected via Bluetooth; you can see your lock in the app. You can check by going to Settings > Bluetooth on your phone.
  • Ensure you have downloaded the latest firmware for your sifely smart lock from our website. You might need to do this if it was recently installed to work properly with our app.
  • You may not have installed the official Sifely app. You can get it in the Apple App Store, Google Play, or Amazon App Store.

The sifely smart lock is not pairing.

Sifely smart lock is not pairing

If your Sifely smart lock is not pairing with your phone, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue.

  • Reboot your phone: If you can pair your device in the app but cannot connect on subsequent attempts, try rebooting both devices and reconnecting.
  • Check the battery level of both devices: Your phone may have run out of battery or entered sleep mode while trying to pair with Sifely; either way, it won’t communicate with your lock until you resolve these issues.
  • Check your internet connection. Make sure your Wi-Fi is connected and you have a strong signal. If you still have issues, connect the lock to a different network.
  • Check if any updates are available for your Wi-Fi Connected Light Bulb or Remote Control App on your smartphone or tablet device.
  • Ensure that the correct devices are in their correct states for pairing: if any of them are not in the correct state, repeat this step until they are all in the correct states.

If your Sifely smart lock is not connecting to the gateway, a few things could be wrong.

  • Check that your gateway has power and is connected to the internet. You can see the status of your device in the Sifely app by clicking on “My Devices” in the top right corner of your screen. If anything looks wrong, try restarting both devices: unplugging them from their power sources for 5 seconds before plugging them back in again.
  • Make sure that the gateway is on and powered on. (It should be blinking blue.) If your gateway isn’t blinking, double-check it’s plugged into power and ensure the battery door is securely closed.
  • Ensure that the gateway and lock are within range of each other—the maximum distance between them is 800 feet (250 meters).
  • Try turning off your Wi-Fi router or unplugging it for about 30 seconds before restarting both devices. This will give them time to reset their connection settings so they can find one another again easily when paired together later in the pairing process.
  • If your lock isn’t working after restarting both devices, try resetting the gateway.

If you’re having trouble connecting your Sifely smart lock to the network, here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • Ensure your Sifely smart lock is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the app. It won’t be easy to control the lock remotely if they’re not.
  • Check for updates on both ends (the phone and lock). A recent update may have fixed some issues preventing proper communication between them, so ensure you have installed any available updates from both parties.
  • Reset your Wi-Fi router. If you have an Apple AirPort or other wireless router, resetting it can resolve many connectivity-related issues.
  • Restart your phone or tablet. Sometimes, a simple restart is all it takes for iOS and Android devices to reestablish their connection with Wi-Fi networks.

When your Sifely smart lock is not opening, there are a few things you can check before calling us.

  • The first step to troubleshooting your sifely smart lock is to check if your phone’s Bluetooth setting is ON. Go into the settings app on an iPhone and choose “Bluetooth.” Turn on “Bluetooth” from the Settings -> Connected devices menu on Android phones. If this does not fix the issue, you may need to reset your device by unplugging it from power for 30 seconds before plugging it back in again.
  • Make sure that the batteries are fully charged. The batteries should be replaced every six months for the best performance and security.
  • Check that the door is not stuck in place due to debris or corrosion on any part of the locking mechanism (such as near the keyhole). If this happens, try to clean out any debris and ensure all parts of your latch move freely before trying again.
  • Make sure that you’re using the correct codes when entering your code.

Sifely smart lock keeps beeping.

Sifely smart lock keeps beeping

If you hear it beeping, you might have a problem with your sifely smart lock.

  • Your sifely smart lock will beep when it’s done pairing with the app on your phone when you press any button on the device and when there is an issue with the connection between your phone and the door.
  • If you hear this beeping sound frequently, it may be because your internet is down or other issues are occurring at that time (such as a power outage).
  • This usually happens when your sifely app isn’t connected to your locks, or you have an issue with the Wi-Fi connection. To fix this issue, try restarting your phone or router and then connecting again.
  • If this doesn’t work, check if anyone in your home is having issues accessing their Wi-Fi network or if any other devices are connected to it, such as a printer or laptop, that may be causing interference.

The sifely smart lock keeps disconnecting.

  • If the sifely smart lock keeps disconnecting, the Bluetooth connection between your phone and the sifely smart lock may have been interrupted.
  • To reconnect, try triple-clicking on the Home button on your iPhone. This will bring up a list of all paired devices connected to Bluetooth, including any smart locks that may have disconnected recently.
  • Select your sifely smart lock from this list by tapping its name. The device should then automatically reconnect itself to your iPhone.
  • If this doesn’t work, try toggling Bluetooth off and on again. Go to Settings > Bluetooth > Toggle Off/On to do this. Try reconnecting your sifely smart lock using the steps above again.
  • If neither of these options works, try restarting your iPhone by holding down the power button until a red slider appears over it. Slide it off to shut down the device, then turn it back on when prompted.
