Connecting Schlage Connect to Smartthings, DSK Code is required

I am trying to connect Schlage Connect (Z-Wave) Lock (model BE489ZP) to Smartthings (using new Android app). Following Smartthings instructions, I am asked at one point to enter 5 digits of DSK code. I have no idea what this is and can not find it on a sticker attached to the device (neither I can’t find a QR code).

Any advice ? Is there a way to bypass this requirement ?

Thx, Walter

Did you try the scan nearby option? You may need to exclude it first.

Usually it’s a QR code on the surface of the lock that gets mounted to the door (gotta remove inside half of the lock), under the battery cover and/or a sticker in the instruction manual.


It is presented as a QR code, with the last five digits printed underneath it.

If the hub requires a DSK code to add the lock, you can find it on the label on the support plate or in the Schlage Connect Quick Start Guide.

I have seen screen print that you have attached. Unfortunately, the back of my devices does not have a sticker as shown on the left side. Instead, I have sticker as shown under “Save this guide” on the right side (the one with the barcode not with square Q/W code). I see model#, Serial number, programming codes and to other numbers without a description).


Hmmm… Can you check the model number again? The Schlage Connect is model 469. Model 489 is the Schlage Encode, which as far as I know is a Wi-Fi lock, not a Z-Wave lock, so it wouldn’t have a DSK code at all. :thinking:

The outer cases look very similar, but the internals are different.


You are correct, it is BE469ZP. I found DSK code and now I have Schlage connected to Smartthings.
All, apologies for wasting your time.
Now I have to figure out why Smartthings allows me only to lock/unlock and not to manage user codes.

Thx, W

Have you installed Smart Lock Guest Access in ST? If it is available in your region.

If you’ve lost the DSK code, you can also cancel it, it’ll join using the older S0 security which doesn’t’ really affect the operation, possibly a tad bit slower to respond.
