The process of changing your Wi-Fi on the Kwikset lock should go smoothly if you follow the steps.

But, sometimes, a few issues related to connectivity and pairing can come between!

When that happens, you shouldn’t worry.

Instead, you should consider following these troubleshooting tips to get it fixed!

Change the network settings: You might or might not know this, but your Halo lock works on a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network.

If your router is dual and works on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, you’ll need to change the settings. Go to the Wi-Fi settings > Network settings > select 2.4 GHz.

Restart the router: Another quick troubleshooting tip is to restart the router. You can power it on after a few minutes. Then, try connecting it again with your lock!

Maintain excellent signal strength: Most of us don’t pay attention to the signal strength of our Wi-Fi networks. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the smart locks require enough signals to connect properly.

That said, ensure your Kwikset lock is getting good signal coverage if not excellent!
