How do I create a fingerprint?

You can add a fingerprint at any time! We recommend using the thumb on your dominant hand.

To add a fingerprint:

  1. In the Wyze app, select Wyze Lock Bolt.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Navigate to Access Settings.
  4. Select Add Fingerprint.
  5. If you haven't already, you’ll need to accept the Fingerprint Permission Request pop-up.
  6. Place your finger on the fingerprint scanner then lift your finger off the fingerprint scanner.
  7. If there is no beep, check that the Wyze Lock Bolt has new batteries and that they are installed correctly.
  8. Rotate your finger slightly, then place your finger on the fingerprint scanner again. Repeat this process until the scanning process is complete (8/8 scans).


Please note that all 8 scans must be completed within 40 seconds or you will see a timeout message and will have to start over. Here’s a demo of scanning your fingerprint: Setting up your keypad
