If your dual lock's auto-lock/unlock function does not work, please check by the following steps:

1. Make sure you have the latest version of SwitchBot app to get bug fixes.

2. Make sure your dual Lock have the latest firmware version, which significantly reduces mechanical error & power failure. Please fill in your Switchbot account at questionnaire link below. Firmware upgrade notification will be automatically pushed to SwitchBot app within 30 seconds after submission.

3. Check your Lock battery. Make sure the remaining battery is above 50%.

  • Go to SwitchBot app, tap the Lock button.
  • Tap the gear icon ⚙️ in the upper right corner.
  • At the sub menu, Tap Firmware & Battery to check.
  • If the battery level is low, replace the battery.

4. Make sure the distance between the magnet and the lock is within 3cm. Please avoid installing the magnet  too far away, or any metal surface, or you will need to reinstall it.

  • Note: the magnet is designed to detect the Lock status of auto-lock/unlock.


5. Remove the 2 batteries from the lock body at the same time to do a reset. After the reset, Please re-calibrate the lock. Refer to the video below:

6. If reset and recalibrating doesn't help, delete the lock from the app and add it again to check if it helps.

If it doesn't work, Please submit a feedback.
