Personal entry codes for your Yale Smart Keypad can be created, modified, and deleted from anywhere. Creating, modifying, and deleting entry codes remotely requires an Yale Connect or an Yale Doorbell Cam, and the most recent version of the Yale Home app.
Without an Yale Connect or Doorbell Cam, personal entry codes can only be created when you are connected to your Yale Smart Lock via bluetooth.
Using Yale's Smart Keypad is easy! Once you set it up, you will follow the steps below to use your new Entry Code. If you have assigned Entry Codes to other guest, they will follow the same steps.

What's In The Box
What You’ll Need
Determine Your Drill Bit Size
1. Remove the keypad’s back panel.
Depress the tab on the back of the keypad to remove the back panel.
2. Mark holes in wall for drilling.
Use your level to position the back panel on the wall. Take your ballpoint pen or one of the included screws and poke it firmly through the center of each of the two rubber feet. Then mark the holes. Do not drill through the rubber feet.
3. Drill the holes.
Use the drill bit size and type indicated in the drill bit chart. Drill holes in the two spots you marked with your pen.
4. Add adhesive to the back of the keypad.
Peel off one side of the adhesive covering. Carefully place the adhesive on the rear side of the back panel.
5. Attach back panel to the wall.
Firmly affix the back panel to the wall using the adhesive. Then take the two screws and screw them into the wall through the holes you created in the back panel.
6. Attach keypad to the back panel.
Remove the battery tab from the inside of the keypad. Hook the top of the keypad onto the top of the back panel, rocking it down to the bottom until you hear a click.
7. Set up Keypad with the Yale app.
In the Yale app, go to the lock settings screen, select “Add a Smart Keypad,” and follow the instructions.
How do I install the Smart Keypad?
The Smart Keypad can be self-installed in about 10 minutes. Simply follow instructions to connect it with your existing Yale Smart Lock.
The Smart Keypad will attach to your wall outside your home using either 2 small screws or special adhesive.
Do I need any other Yale products in order to use the Smart Keypad?
You need to have an Yale Smart Lock or Yale Smart Lock HomeKit enabled installed and Yale app downloaded in order to use the Smart Keypad.
What new features does the Smart Keypad add to the Yale Smart Lock?
The Smart Keypad enables an easier point of entry for quick access that doesn’t require a smartphone. Entry Codes can be auto-generated for friends, family and trusted service providers.
To generate Entry Codes, you will need to be in bluetooth range of the lock.
How long does the battery last?
The Smart Keypad runs on two AAA batteries. Estimated battery life is 3 months.
Why is the Yale Smart Keypad better considering I need both the Smart Keypad and an Yale Smart Lock?
With the Yale Smart Keypad you can create unique codes for each individual, rather than one, maybe two codes for everyone who needs access. This ties your guest’s name to each entry so you can keep track of who comes and goes.
With the Smart Keypad you can have a 24/7 log of who entered and when (requires Yale Smart Lock HomeKit enabled and an Yale Connect). You can view this information from the Yale app for iOS and Android.
