Please make sure you enable Bluetooth on your mobile device and have access to the WiFi network before you start installing the Bold Connect.

  1. Plugin the Bold Connect with the included power adapter.
  2. Start the installation mode on the Bold Connect by pushing and holding the knob. Release the knob when the led ring starts blinking red.
  3. Open the Bold App and select ‘Install Gateway” in the main menu. ‘Install Gateway” is marked with an orange indicator.
  4. Briefly push the knob on the Bold Connect and knob in the App at the same time. The Bold Connect links now with your account.
  5. Give the Bold Connect a name of your choice. You can change this name later in the process. Press ‘Next’.
  6. Select your WiFi network from the list to set an internet connection for the Bold Connect.
  7. When connected, you will see a list with locks that are within reach of the Bold Connect. These locks can now make use of the Bold Connect functionality.

    After the installation process, the Bold Connect is ready to use. In case you have multiple Bold Smart Cylinders installed, pay attention if all are in reach of the Bold Connect. When your Bold Smart Cylinder is not on the list, it is likely that the Bold Connect can not connect with the lock. This happens when the lock is too far away from the Bold Connect or concrete or steel obstacles block the signal. If so, adjust the position of the Bold Connect. In the App, you can see if these position changes result in a proper signal.
