Goki SmartLock Installation - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In this article, you will learn the important steps of connecting & installing your Goki SmartLock.

1. Create & Connect


Before you can connect a lock to Goki you need to create your rooms & beds on the Goki Dashboard.

Once you have created all of your rooms & beds on the dashboard, you can use the Chief app to connect each lock to the corresponding Goki room.



It's best to label all of your locks with the room that they will be installed on, connect to Goki & test PRIOR to installing on the door!

2. Test Each Lock


Test each lock using Hostel Chief to unlock the lock ensuring the Disc lights up Green & the outer handle opens the latch.

Test each lock using the admin pin to unlock ensuring the Disc lights up Green & the outer handle opens the latch.



If a lock is not working as expected, a hard reset is required. This is done by holding down the reset button on the back of the lock. 

3. Install Locks to the Door


Once you are confident the locks are connected & working correctly, it's time to connect the lock to the door.
