RE-AL

The beauty of Hafele's Digital locks is that it works on an offline system with no integration to the web; thereby securing all your data and passwords from getting hacked. Hence, there is no possibility of your Digital Lock getting hacked.

Hafele’s Re-Al digital locks use the capacitive fingerprint scan technology which is more responsive to any object and reacts with more accuracy.

In case of emergencies, you can exit your homes by simply pressing the lever handle on the lock irrespective of the locking mode that has been activated.

During fire accidents a feature called high-temperature alarm rings, as this sets off in case of a fire or any other event where the inside room temperature touches or exceeds 70°C (the alarm can be deactivated either by removing the battery or waiting till the room temperature falls below 70°C).

The Re-Al digital lock can be compatible with smart video phones wherein you can talk to the person standing on the other side of the door. For example, in the recent Covid situation you could talk to the delivery agent who carried your parcel and direct him to leave it near your doorsteps via video phone.

This lock has 4 ways of access.

  • Capacitive Fingerprint (Up to 100 unique accesses)
  • Key-pad or Password (1 master access, Up to 3 unique user accesses)

  • Mechanical Key (Up to 2 keys)
  • Remote Control Module (can be purchased separately)
  • If there is melody/tune or if the red light is ON or if the keypad flashes after entering a password, there could be a password mismatch. If you have entered a wrong password three times in a row, a warning tone will be generated and the keypad will flash causing the operation to freeze for one minute.
  • The battery might have been discharged. In this case, please open the door with a 9V battery to connect with the emergency power terminal which is on the outer body.
  • If the double locking security mode is set from inside, there will be a quick beeping sound after entering the password from outside. The double locking mode should be then released from inside.
  • If the door does not open immediately after entering the password and any number appears then the dual security mode is set. Press the additional numbers sequentially to open the door.

The door compartment fails to function properly, causing the deadbolt to get stuck in the shackle and not operate smoothly. Firstly, check the operation of the square lock (i.e. deadbolt) while the door is open and if there is no problem still, then you must check the door itself. Please contact a professional to check the door.

If the square-locking device (deadbolt) is not operating smoothly while the door is open, please call the customer care centre.
