Before you begin, download and log into the following apps using your login credentials. (Homebase will initiate account invitations which you will receive via email from Homebase and Allegion.)

If your invite has expired please contact Homebase Support.

Step 1: Install the lock.

Step 2: Add the lock to the Homebase integrated Engage site in the Engage App.

Return to Engage App

  2. Engage the lock and manually turn the deadbolt to lock the unit.

Please note: It may be necessary to close and reopen the app in order to successfully perform lock maintenance or engage the lock. If the app fails to perform lock maintenance or engage please close and reopen the app and try again.

Please note: The app does not lock the door. The app engages the lock which allows you to turn the deadbolt. You must manually turn the deadbolt to lock or unlock.


If the lock fails to Engage and/or Perform lock maintenance, it may need to be removed from the Engage site, factory reset, and re-added to the Engage site.

Remove the lock from the Engage Site.

  1. Swipe left on the lock's name and delete the lock you are removing.

Step 2: Manually reset the lock.

  3. Turn the deadbolt rod to engage the lock twice.

  4. Replace the backplate.

Step 3: Add the lock again as outlined in Step 2 above.

You do not need to make any changes to the Mobile Manager. The lock will still be onboarded to the unit but the connection should now be refreshed and the lock should Engage and Perform lock maintenance using the Homebase Mobile Manager App.
