Don't Forget to Spring Forward: Check Your TTLock Smart Locks for Daylight Savings!

As the days grow longer and the weather warms, it's that time of year again when we set our clocks forward for Daylight Savings Time. While you may remember to adjust your manual clocks and digital devices, one thing that often gets overlooked is our smart home technology, including smart locks. If you have a TTLock smart lock installed, it's essential to ensure that it's synchronized with the new time settings. In this blog post, we'll remind you why checking your TTLock smart lock during Daylight Savings is crucial and how to do it seamlessly.

The Importance of Updating Your Smart Lock

TTLock smart locks are designed to provide convenience, security, and peace of mind. However, like all technology, they rely on accurate time settings to function correctly. Failing to adjust your smart lock for Daylight Savings can lead to a variety of issues, including:

  1. Security Concerns: An incorrect time setting on your smart lock can potentially compromise the security of your home. If your lock's schedule is not in sync with the actual time, it may not lock or unlock your door at the intended times.

  2. Confusion: Inaccurate time settings can lead to confusion, especially if you have automated schedules in place. Imagine your smart lock unlocking the door an hour earlier than expected—it could disrupt your daily routine and security habits.

  3. Battery Life: Smart locks rely on power to operate, and maintaining accurate time settings is vital for conserving battery life. When your lock operates out of sync, it might use more power than necessary, leading to frequent battery replacements.

  4. Remote Access: If you use the TTLock App to control your smart lock remotely, an incorrect time setting could cause issues with your access control. You may find it challenging to unlock or lock your door when you need to.

How to Update Your TTLock Smart Lock for Daylight Savings

Now that we understand the importance of updating our smart locks let's take a look at how to do it:

  1. Access the TTLock App: Open the TTLock app on your smartphone or tablet. Make sure you are within Bluetooth range of the smart lock.

  2. Select Your Lock: Choose the TTLock smart lock you want to update from the list of devices in the app.

  3. Read the push notification: Typically, if your smart phone is in sync with correct date and time, the TTLock app will automatically prompt you when daylight savings occurs. If you can view this reminder simply accept the reminder and the sync to the correct time will occur automatically.

  4. Calibrate Time: In the smart lock settings menu, go to 'Lock Clock'. Select 'Calibrate Time' to update the time to reflect the new Daylight Savings  syncing.

  5. Daylight Savings: In the same section, press 'Daylight saving setting' to see if any updates need to occur.

  6. Test the Lock: To ensure everything is working correctly, test your lock by locking and unlocking it using the app. Verify that it operates at the expected times.

In the age of smart homes, it's easy to forget that even our most advanced devices require a little maintenance from time to time. With Daylight Savings Time approaching, taking a few minutes to check and update your TTLock smart lock is a small task that can prevent potential security issues and ensure the continued smooth operation of your smart home. Don't let the clock spring forward without updating your smart lock – it's a simple step towards keeping your home safe and secure.
