Do you want to activate the Bold Smart Cylinder without using your cell phone? Then you can use the practical, unique backup PIN that Bold developed.

You can use the PIN when you’ve installed the Bold PIN App. In the settings screen, you can enable the backup PIN. The Bold platform will generate a secure 5-digit code. You can regenerate PINs until you’ve found a PIN you deem suitable. Currently, it’s not yet possible to set your own PIN. You can create up to three PINs. As you create a PIN for a specific Bold Smart Cylinder, you can’t assign it to other individuals. Of course, you get to decide with whom you share your PIN.

As soon as you are in the Bluetooth range of the lock, the Bold Smart Cylinder PIN is activated.

To enter the PIN, you should alternately turn left and right when entering the digits. It doesn’t matter if you start on the left or right, as long as you change direction after each digit. Make sure you don’t wait too long between entering digits. If you’ve entered the right PIN, you will hear two short beeps, after which the lock will be activated. If you’ve entered the wrong PIN, you will hear one beep. In that case, the lock won’t be activated.

Watch the video below to see how you should enter the PIN.
