Having a smart lock on your home can offer a lot of benefits for ease (or denial) of access, but sometimes situations arise where you need to reset the lock.  Maybe you bought a home with an existing Kwikset Halo Smart Lock and you want to remove all the registered uses of that lock, or you’ve lost your phone, or changed your internet provider. Maybe the lock mysteriously stopped functioning, or upon initial programming attempts something went wrong.

Whatever the reason, smart locks generally feature reset functions. I’m going to go through the three different reset options for the Kwikset Halo Smart Lock.  These resets apply to the touch pad, keypad and fingerprint versions of the Halo smart lock.

The Different Types of Kwikset Halo Resets:

Network Reset:

Kwikset’s Network reset deletes all Wi-Fi settings, Bluetooth pairings, user associations, and removes the lock from the associated account.  This reset option keeps all existing access codes and lock settings. A network reset is most useful when:

  • Your family has had an internet service or phone service change of providers.
  • You’ve taken the smart lock to a new home and want to continue using the existing codes.

Halo System Reset:

This reset deletes all existing access codes and lock settings (including lock handing).  This would be appropriate if your user codes have been compromised.

Factory Reset:

This combines the above two resets and brings the lock back to its initial factory settings. This is what you want to do if you’ve just moved into a home that has an existing lock.
