Noke Padlock | General Usage

Bluetooth. In order for your Noke to work, the Bluetooth on your phone must be turned on. (Unless you plan to use quick-click or Noke's key fob)

Shackle presses. Noke responds to presses on the shackle. A regular press is a firm press down and a release. A short press is perfect. No need to hold down the shackle. Lights will indicate when you’ve activated Noke.

Sleeping. To prolong battery life, Noke is always sleeping until you press down on the shackle. A blue light will flash indicating Noke has been awakened.

  • Click shackle to wake and open. Once the shackle is pressed, Noke starts looking for a device that has permission to open it. If it finds a device and receives the correct digital key (either automatically with 1-Step Unlock enabled, or manually with 1-Step Unlock disabled), Noke will unlock and then go right back to sleep. A green light will flash indicating Noke has unlocked.

  • Press shackle to close. To lock Noke, close shackle and press down firmly. A red light will indicate Noke is locked.

Removable back. Noke’s back is removable to provide access to the user-replaceable battery. To remove the back, unlock Noke, lift the shackle, and twist the back counterclockwise. To replace the back, make sure Noke is unlocked and shackle is lifted, line up locking pin with internal hole, push back into place and twist clockwise. Twist firmly to ensure a weather-resistant seal.

Battery. Noke uses a standard 2032 watch battery that lasts about one year. To replace the battery, unlock Noke, lift the shackle, and twist the back counterclockwise. To replace the back, make sure Noke is unlocked and shackle is lifted, line up locking pin with internal hole, push back into place and twist clockwise. Twist firmly to ensure a weather-resistant seal.

  • Battery performance is affected by temperature. If Noke will be left outside in extremely cold conditions, be sure it has a fresh battery. Also, consider keeping a spare battery in your wallet in case you need to jump-start Noke in extreme cold conditions.

Jump-Start. As a backup mechanism, Noke employs external contacts on the bottom, allowing you to touch a replacement battery to them and provide power to Noke like you would to a dead car battery. Once the replacement battery is touched to the contacts, you may open Noke as you normally would, using either 1-Step Unlock, 2-Step Unlock, Quick-Click, or a Noke Key Fob. For a visual guide of Jump-Start, see this article.

Light. Noke has a light on the front to indicate various activities. In bright sunlight, you may need to cup your hand over the light to create shade, making the light appear brighter. The light indicates as follows:

  • Off. Sleeping
  • Blue. Normal Shackle Press
  • White. Long Shackle Press
  • Green flash.  Unlock
  • Multi-color flash. Updating lock with new settings or firmware
  • Red flash.  Lock
  • Red fade to off. Entering sleep mode
