Factory Resetting a Smonet Smart Lock
You can reset your Smonet Lock if you’ve lost/forgotten your Admin Passcode or have some issues with the Lock. Yes, factory resetting the lock will restore factory default settings, so you can set up the lock again.
But keep in mind that all your previous settings will be erased, including integration settings with the TTLock app, Alexa, Google Home, etc. So you’ll have to start all over again to set up the lock, as you did when you first installed it.
That said, here’s how to reset a Smonet Smart Lock:
- Remove the battery cover and remove the batteries.
- Wait 5 seconds, and then put the batteries back in.
- Find the Reset button (a circle button located somewhere besides the battery pack). Next, press and hold the Reset button (for about 10 seconds) until the lock beeps. The beep sound shows that the lock is reset.
Ensure you set it up properly for continuous, reliable operation.
How do you unlock a Smonet Smart Lock when the batteries are low?
If the batteries in your Smonet Lock are completely drained, get a 9V battery and touch the emergency battery terminal (below the bottom of the lock) to power the lock. You can now unlock the door and replace the batteries with new ones.
Ensure you use only alkaline batteries.
You can also unlock the lock with the physical key. Remove the keyhole cover with a pin and insert the key into the keyhole to unlock it.
Does Smonet Smart Lock work with Google Home?

Smonet Lock not locking/unlocking?
Issues like this may happen if the batteries in your lock are low. So if you’re currently not able to lock or unlock your Smonet Lock, first replace the batteries and then try to operate the lock again to see if it works.
If the issue persists, restore default settings on your lock to fix any internal bug. See how to reset a Smonet Lock above or refer to your Smonet Lock manual.
