Note: If you're using a Samsung J3 or other model phones with Android and you cannot reconnect to your NuLock with our NuLock App. Place your finger on the lock you wish to unlock on the Nulock App and wait for the App to ask "Sure you want to remove this device?", Select Enter. After that, push the button on your NuLock and tap "Scan" on the NuLock App to reconnect the lock to your phone.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does the battery get affected by cold weather? I bike all winter.
We heard biker users had problem to use U-lock in cold weather. Our Nulock is certified to operate in temperatures between -14 to 140 Fahrenheit. Under cold temperature, the battery activity might get lower but it could still work. We have customers in Canada using it no problem. Even you have problem to open it, you can still get spare batteries to activate it and unlock it.
can i give temporary access to a family member?
It does not have temporary password. But it sounds like a good idea. So you want to give out one-time pasword to other people so they will not be able to come back to unlock your device with the password you give to them?Are you using it on a bike or anything else? At this moment, you can change your password if you want after you share it with other people.
Which way does this work? What is distance i can be away to be notified.? I have storage in my building and i keep some stuf in it, im on 6th floor... will it work?
There are two features in the app setting: 1. Notification. You can get notification when your phone is connected or disconnected with the Nulock if you turn on this feature. Most bluetooth distance is in 30 feet. So most likely you will only get notified when your Nulock connects or disconnects to your phone before it reaches to 6th floor. 2. Vibration. If you set this feature on, your Nulock will send out 110dB alarm if someone moves it when it is out of your bluetooth distance or it disconnects to your phone in bluetooth. The reason is we do not want the Nulock to send out alarm when the owner is with his/her Nulock since 110dB is really aloud. The alarm feature is used to deter the thief away. It is not used to notify the owner since that will require a sim card in the device which involves extra monthly charge and even if you get notified and come back, the thief will run away. So we want the alarm to work at the very moment. Please check our video testimonies in our product page to find out how it works in more detail.
I just purchased two of these unlocks for bikes. After I installed them on my iPhone I keep getting this message (Smartlock has been disconnected) and a few seconds later it changes to (Smartlock has been connected). This has happened 67 times since installed them last night. I also tried to test them in the vibrate mode. Could not make them beep. What is going on?
Thanks for your purchase. There are two notification settings in the Nulock app as you can see from this blog: https://nuvending.com/blogs/review/gogear-bluetooth-bike-lock-a-convenient-lock-with-alarm-that-is-great-for-rvers. One is vibration (alarm). If you set it on, then the alarm will go off when your phone is not connected to your Nulock by bluetooth and the lock is touched/moved by someone. If someone opens the battery cover or cut the cable, it wiil trigger the alarm too if your phone is not nearby. The other notification setting is (Bluetooth connection) notifaction which is what happened to you. It is a reminder to tell you that your phone is connected or disconnected to your lock. If you turn this off, then you will not get that message.
How do I call you about weather or not you sell padlocks? I need a lock like you make that can be opened from about 60 feet for a gate.
Hi Our nulock use bluetooth technology which works up to 30 feet and consumes low energy compared to WiFi module. For 60 feet, you might consider a wired solution or try to use Bluetooth 5 enabled Samsung S8 or iPhone 8, 8P or 8X.
why my phone not vibrating if someone shake the Nulock ?
Hi Thanks for your purchase. There are two features in the app you can turn on. One is vibration (alarm). It will activate the 110db alarm when your phone is out of bluetooth range if you set it on. Since it is pretty aloud, we do not want to disturb the owner if the owner is moving or shaking the device. You can try to turn the bluetooth off and then shake the Nulock to see whether the alarm goes off. The first time it will give one beep. If the shake continues in 5 seconds, then it will go off for 30 seconds. You hae to turn on the bluetooth and wait for the device to connect to your phone to turn off the alarm. You can also set notification on or off. It just lets you know your device is connected or disconnected with your phone by bluetooth.
What happens if the Nulock malfunctions. Since it is keyless, I am assuming there is no way to release it other than electronically.
Yes you have to use the app on a cellphone to unlock the device. Here are some possibilities which may happen: 1. Your cellphone is dead or you forgot your phone at home. Solution: You just need to remember your password just like using a comb lock. Then you can borrow your friend's phone to download the "Nulock" free app then type in your password to unlock it. Our current updated version does not provide password recovery to factory setting from our side since that might leave some hole to hackers. We recommend to write down your password in the memo card included in the box. 2. Nulock is out of battery. Solution: It is a very rare situation. 3x AAA batteries could last up to 8 months under normal use of twice lock/unlock every day. Besides of that, battery level in the "Nulock" app always tells you the power percentage left and also warns you low battery if the battery level is less than 20%. In case the battery is dead, then you can open the screw to change battery. But you still need to use your own phone to unlock the device after you install the new battery. That means, even if someone removes the battery under the loud alarming, they still can not press the unlock button to release the bolt. 3. The unlock button does not release the bolt. Solution: In very rare situation, the mechanical parts might get malfunction and the unlock button does not work after a long time of use. This could happen to any mechanic lock, even a U-lock. But compared to a U-lock which is very hard to cut, you can cut the cable if our Nulock becomes malfunction. You have to bear some noise to take out the battery first. You just need to take a picture for that situation, then we will send you a NEW one for FREE.
I want to rent my bike in Spinlister. Is it safe?
That is a good idea. We encourage bike sharing. With Nulock, you just need to send the password to the bike renter. Actually you do not need to meet the renter face to face. Just get one of NuCam 720p light bulb camera. Then you can check from the camera to see whether they come to pick up or have returned it. It is like double security. Just make sure they did not change the password. Please share your experience with us if you have done so.
If someone takes the battery off, will they unlock it?
Well the electrical circuit of the device is specially designed. If that happens, it will keep alarms which tells the thief to stop. If they determine to do so, they still can not press the unlock button to release the bolt! If you need a battery cover, we can send you a replacement one.
The device sometimes beeps when I move it. When it keeps alarming if I park it outside of a store and someone touches it accidentally?
Great question since you care! But this device is "smart". The device beeps only when your phone is not nearby or you turn off the bluetooth, and you have set the vibration on in the app. Just remember to keep the bluetooth on or turn off the vibration. If someone moves your bike and Nulock triggers it, it will give out a one-beep warning. If the movement continues in 5 seconds, then it will get off for 30 seconds. It will not keep alarming. It is just a feature to deter thieves away and notify you by sound.
Can I use my phone to control multiple devices?
Yes, you can control them together under one app. You can rename each device differently. And you can use multiple phones to control one device. But one time it only allows one phone to connect to one device.
If I forget to bring my phone or it is out of battery, how can I unlock the device?
Wow, it is just like you lost your key for a regular lock. No I am kidding. You are OK. You are not screwed. How about borrowing a phone from your friend and type in your password. You changed the password and do not remember it, and you do not have your phone! This is a very rare situation. We can not recover the password for you since it will bring hole in our app to those hackers. That is why we put a card inside the pacakge and encourage you to write it down.
Why my phone can not connect to the device?
Since it is a bluetooth smart lock, please double check the following points:
*The bluetooth of your phone is on
*The battery cover is on with screws tightened in
*There is no other phone connected to the device.
What do you do if you forget the password to your lock
As we remind in our warranty card and user manual, we could not cover the password for you. So we strongly recommend our customers to write down the new pasword if they forget it. Actually after you set up the app, your phone will remember the password you set unless you change your phone or use another phone to unlock it.
myscreen is "stuck on the "disconnected" and won't let me do anything else, even lock the bike. It has new batteries and case is secure. Alarm has been constantly going off.....HELP!!!!
Hi Stephen The email you left in our website does not work. So here I replied to your Q&A. I am sorry to hear that. You said you could not always lock the device by pressing the lock button. It seems you got defective item. Could you please tell me your order ID? We will try to send you a replacement one. Roy
Hi i just changed the battery on my nulock and it Ian not connecting anymore. It shows one red light but when I go to Connect it doesn’t work. I need help please
Could you please make sure you have tightened both screws in and have pressed the lock button on the front panel? You should be able to hear BiBiBi sound. Then you can begin to connect to the device on your phone. Please let me know whether it works.
in the event of an alarm, how long will the siren sound before the batteries die.
Hi Jeff, for vibration alarm, it will give one beep of warning in case someone touches it accidently. If the movement continues in 5 seconds, then the siren will go for 30 seconds. Its purpose is to deter the thief away but not to disturb everyone in the surrounding. But if someone cut the cable or take the screws off from the battery cover, then the siren will keep alarm until the batteries die, which normally goes around half an hour.
I bought this lock over a year ago and haven't used it since. I can't remember my password. How can I reset it? thanks
Hi Robert, did you try the default password 123456? If it still does not work, you can send it to us as the address shown in our website then we will try to reset it for you.
Forgot password how do I reset it?
Hi Rosrmary, I am sorry to hear that. As you can see from our user manual or warranty card, we could not recover the password from ourside. But if you can send the unit to our California office, then we can send you a replacement one. That is why we ask to write the new password on the warranty card. Our address is: Aaron Lee(RMA), 515 S Palm Ave. #7, Alhambra, CA91803. ---Roy
Hi, I am interested in buying your bluetooth alarm lock but have a question. Does the lock automatically unlock when my bluetooth enabled phone is within range? I want to take my bike with me while traveling in my RV and I'm concerned it may automatically unlock while bluetooth is enabled on my phone inside.
Hi Thanks for your interest. If you turn on "AutoUnlock" option, then yes the lock will unlock automatically if your phone is nearby. But if you use "Unlock" option, then you will have to press the Unlock button to unlock it. Otherwise it will stay in locked status. But you will have to press the red button to release the lock pin for either way. You can check this video for more detail: https://youtu.be/OxZplRxMrt4
I had changed my phone n forgot to pair with new phone . Now had lock the lockand unable to unlock. Cannot unlock with password either . Keep prompting error . Please help. Urgent
Hi Tan, I am sorry to hear that. Did you change the password? Or you are still using the default password 123456 but the app keeps prompting error? You can try to exit from the app then launch again. Please let me know whether it works.
i got my nulock today from amazon and when trying to pair with the app I keep getting password error and the alarm keep going off. ive tried removing the batteries and starting over and reinstalling the app and still getting the password error.... what do i do?
I am sorry for the inconvenience. What phone are you using? Did you try to use another phone to connect to it? Could you please tell me your order ID so we can send you a replacement one.
I got a new phone and had to get new app. Now alarm is locked and active but my phone will not recognize device. Is there any way to resolve
Hi, Thanks for your purchase. When you use your new phone, is your old phone still nearby and connected to the lock? You might set Vibration (alarm) on in the app. Please make sure the lock is not connected to any other phone. Then you can try to connect to the lock.
How do I put in a new password
You can change the password in the menu. But please make sure you write it down or remember your password since we could not recover it for you. Thanks
Is there anything I can do if I have forgotten my password cheers gary
Hi Gary, you can send it to us: Arron Lee (RMA), 515 S Palm Ave. #7, Alhambra, CA91803. Then we will send another one to you.
I just bought two of your locks two days ago. I tried to connect my wife's phone to the locks and now neither lock will connect to any phone. When I try to connect to the locks I am asked for the "new" password. Neither lock recognizes the password I set up on my phone.
Thanks for your purchase. Can I know what phone are you using? Is it an iPhone or Android phone? Some Android phones might have connectivity issue but most times it should be OK. When it asks for the "new" password, you just need to type in the factory password 123456. Before your phone can recognize the lock, you need to make sure you pressed the lock button on the front panel and hear DiDiDi beep. If not, please make sure you have tightened the screws in the battery cover and makes sure the bluetooth is on in your phone. You can also check this video if it says password error: https://youtu.be/ym8GIzUl7iw
How secure is the bluetooth connection? Is the lock protected against the following attacks? https://smartlockpicking.com/tutorial/how-to-pick-a-ble-smart-lock-and-cause-cancer/
Hi That command was designed to reset the password in most beginning in case our customers forgot the password and returned the products to us. We had taken that command off from our Nulock after Matthew left review for us:https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1OPKA227Q6P5/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B01KGR8PNU. That is why we added some words in our updated manual and warranty card: we do not provide password reset service since we could not reset it too. Also, the author of your article has never contacted us. Our website is still here all the time. Maybe he contacted someone else who resells our old version. And our Nulock has achieved a rank of #1 in Ezvid Wiki of 2018's best smart bike locks. https://nuvending.com/blogs/review/nulock-has-achieved-a-rank-of-1-in-ezvid-wiki-of-2018s-best-smart-bike-locks.
I use my NuLock primarily when I camp, locking a Bike below the slide out in my motorhome. Is there any way to turn off the proximity disabling of the audible alarm when the Bluetooth device is near the alarm. If someone tries to take the bike in the middle of the night I'd probable never hear it. They could cut through the cable with a pair of Bolt cutters and make off with the bicycle, and the alarm would not sound. It is inconvenient to disable the bluetooth on my phone, there are other devices connected at the same time, and unreasonable to shut the phone off. I'd simply like a software toggle to allow me to keep the alarm on even when the bluetooth device is in close proximity to the lock.
Thanks for your suggestion. Normally we recommend customers to turn off the Bluetooth when they stay nearby.
At the same time, we also ask for our engineering team to think about updating our software. Hope we can have the function you ask for in our next generation.
Thanks again for your support.
Is your smart lock open source? Can we have some API of the smart lock if we want to develop a project?
Yes we can do that. Could you please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us more detail about your requirement or application? Thanks!
I just got my Nulock. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 8. When I enable Notifications in the app, and clearly go in and out of Bluetooth range, I am not getting any notifications. How come?
Did you check the notification setting on your phone? You have to turn on notification feature on your phone too.
Hi, I just bought the Nulock and I have a question. If I start the app, and then lock the Nulock, the app connects to it. Then, if I click the lock, and then check AutoUnlock, the lock unlocks before I can get out of bluetooth range. How is this feature supposed to work, if I cannot get out of bluetooth range before it unlocks?
For AutoUnlock feature, after you lock the device, the lock will keep as unlocked if your phone is still in Bluetooth range. But the pin still stays in the lock unless you press the red side bar to release it. Then when your phone gets out of Bluetooth range, the lock will turn to locked. That means you do not need to press the lock button on the front panel of the lock to lcok it. But I do not recommend to use the AutoUnlock feature since the above steps could get messed up or customer did not realize their lock is unlocked. I recommend the manual Unlock feature.
Any chance you could make a smartwatch app? I have the Samsung Gear smartwatch and it would be really cool if I could unlock the lock with my watch instead of having to fish the phone out of my pocket.
Hi Yes we are developing our new app. Definitely we will try to make a smartwatch app. Please follow us in our Twitter so you can get notified with our new product release or app update.
What type of screw is used for the cover? I lost one and need to replace it.
Hi Bradley, could you please give me your order ID? To get screws from us, we can just remove a customer returned item from our Amazon warehouse to you. So you can get some useful parts from the package. Sometimes the returned ones could be a good one too. The customer might have returned it just because of some personal reason.
So no one can unlock this lock even if they have the app. Unless they have my password correct
Yes, you are right! After you delete the app and reinstall again or install the app in any other phone, it will ask for your password to unlock the device. But a reminder: please keep your password in the warranty card or save it somewhere since we can not recover your password if you forget it.
Are you going to make one with a longer cable? Sometimes I want to lock a large object or multiple bicycles.
Yes we will make one with a longer cable. Before it is released in the market, at this moment, you can buy multiple Nulocks to lock a large object.
i was wondering if the lock is on and someone makes it go off does it notify you if your like in a store or over a 100 yards from your bike so you know to come out and turn it off.
Unfortunately, as a bluetooth device the NuLock will not notify you if you are out of bluetooth range. Generally you will be able to hear the 110db alarm from 100yards away. Once the alarm goes off you will need to approach your bike in bluetooth range to disable the alarm.
Can this lock be used by mulitple user? We plan to use it to secure a gate and about 6 people will need access. If each of them have the app on their phone and the correct password will the lock work for all of them?
Yes, all of you can download the free app then type in the correct password to unlock it. It only needs password for their first time to use. Then later they can unlock it with the app directly. But please make sure to write down your new password since we can not recover it for you.
