(Yale) Pairing The Pushbutton Lock

Last Updated: May 13, 2013 02:36PM PDT
Now that your Pushbutton lock is in its installed position, you'll need to pair it to your Vera Smart Controller in order to join it to your smart home system.  This is a one-time process and takes just a few moments.  Because the pairing process requires that the device (your lock) and the Controller need to be in close proximity of three feet or so, you'll need to put your Smart Controller into its battery mode, so you can take it to the lock's location for pairing.

If you have a VeraLite Smart Controller, click here for instructions on how to enter battery mode.
If you have a Vera3 Smart Controller, click here for instructions on how to enter battery mode. 

Once the Smart Controller is in battery mode, bring it over to the lock and begin these three steps:


Your Yale Pushbutton lock includes a small plug-in module that gives it the connected intelligence with your Vera Smart Home Controller.  It must be physically installed in the inside of the lock -- simply a matter of plugging it in.

If you haven't already done so, unscrew the top screw of the battery cover for the indoor portion of your pushbutton lock.  Slide the battery cover upward and off the lock. Now the battery compartment and the plug-in slot for the "Network Module" will be visibile.  Before you put in the batteries, insert the network module as shown. Don't worry, there's only one way to plug it in where it will click in properly -- the angles are at the top of the module.

Now that you've installed the module, you can insert the batteries.  The lock will flash its light to tell you that it's powered and ready to start.


The Master PIN Code is the main electronic "key" for your pushbutton doorlock, and the one that gives you a secure main PIN that can also set other PINs (keys) for other family, friends and guests.

To set your Master PIN, push the pound (#) button on your keypad as shown.  You will hear an audible alert that puts you in the lock's correct setting mode.  Then push the "1" key, followed by the pound key. You will hear another audible alert telling you the lock is ready for your code.  Enter your personal PIN of between 4-8 numbers, then save your setting by pushing the pound key again.  Your Master PIN is now set!

Your lock is now ready for the third and final step -- pairing it to your Vera Smart Controller.


You should now have your Vera Smart Controller working in battery mode and within 3 feet of the lock  Put your Vera Smart Controller into pairing mode:

If you're using a VeraLite Smart Controller, push the "+" button on the top of the unit to put it into pairing mode.  The orange light will flash slowly -- VeraLite is ready for pairing.

If you're using a Vera3 Smart Controller, push the "Z-Wave" button on the front panel to put it into pairing mode.  The green Z-Wave LED light will flash slowly -- Vera3 is ready for pairing.

Activate the lock by entering your PIN code and pressing the pound key.  The lock will send and audible alert for the next step, which is to press the "7" key and then the pound key.  This puts you in the lock's Network Module" menu.  Now press the number "1" key and then the pound key.  The lock is now in pairing mode and will connect with the Vera Smart Controller.

NOTE: You have 20 seconds between activating your code and making another action.  After 20 seconds, for security reasons, the lock will return to its "sleep" state. If this happens, simply activate the lock again by entering your PIN and then the pound key.

The Vera Smart controller will flash quickly to show you then pairing was made, and then return to blinking slowly.  On the VeraLite, press the "+" button for 5 seconds to save your changes.  On the Vera3, press the "Z-Wave" button for 5 seconds to save your changes.

Your lock is now paired to your Z-Wave network, and will show up on your Dashboard as shown below:
