Wyze Lock’s motor will spin freely across a 90-degree angle, but has a full 180 degrees of movement available. This allows you to install the lock in whichever position you’d prefer.
To change the orientation of Wyze Lock’s motor:
- Remove Wyze Lock from the door (if already installed).
- Turn Wyze Lock’s thumb latch to a vertical position.
- Continue turning through the resistance, forcefully rotating the motor to the opposite side of where it started.
- Reinstall Wyze Lock.
Note: Wyze Lock can be used with the thumb latch in either position on every type of deadbolt except Kwikset and Baldwin Reserve/Prestige. For those brands specifically, the thumb latch must be in a vertical position while the deadbolt is locked, and horizontal while unlocked.
