Hi @wolfman566

I’m glad the auto-unlock function is working now.
In order to set up the auto-lock feature, please follow the steps here:

If you want to change the time for auto-lock,

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Can we add auto-lock interval 30 mins and 60 mins as options? This can help avoid scenarios where doing chores inside and outside where the current max of 4 mins doesn’t cut it. End result being chewing up the battery and risk of being locked out if you leave your phone inside.

Alternatively, maybe a snooze feature on auto-lock to bypass auto-lock for X amount of time.

Thanks for your feedback! We’ve had similar requests in the past, so additional auto-unlock options are on our Feature Request list, but we’d need to check in with our product team to see if they have any plans to implement these features in the near future. We appreciate the suggestion and for the additional vote on the feature! We know this would be a nice quality of life improvement for many users so we’ll let our team know there have been more requests for additional auto-unlock times and hopefully it will be added soon. Thanks!- CANDY HOUSE



Please add auto-lock interval 15 mins, 30 mins and 60 mins as options.



One option is Autolock when leaving area, geofencing. I get a popup when I leave my home from Sesame saying goodbye, why not follow that with a door lock if unlocked?



Thanks for the suggestion! We currently don’t have plans to expand auto-unlock to include a geofence option but we’ll let you know if our plans change in the future. In the meantime, if you have a Wi-Fi Access Point, you can check out IFTTT and set up your own applet to lock on geofence. Hope this helps! - CANDY HOUSE
