All four dead batteries must first be removed and replaced with new batteries (AA batteries). If the old batteries are changed one at a time, the notification is not reset.

It varies greatly depending on the conditions on site (interior and exterior walls, etc.), as is generally the case with wireless technology. Around ten metres is the maximum range possible.

The typical life of a new set of high-quality batteries is up to two years in the keypad and up to one year in the door lock power unit and the remote control.

Please note: The way it is used is of course also a factor – the more often it is used, the more often the batteries will need changing.

Yes, where the door can be locked in the usual fashion using a key, HomeTec Pro can be used.

We recommend that you do not dispense with the mechanical locking option from the outside so that it is still always possible to use a normal key here in an emergency (battery fault, failure, etc.).
The locking cylinder must therefore also have an emergency and hazard function. If you were to power an ABUS reinforced lock bar using HomeTec Pro, this use would not be approved by ABUS.

Yes, the beep tones can be adjusted or even switched off using the wireless keypad.

We have specialised on development and manufacture for many years now. When it comes to sales and service, our partners are traditionally the specialist dealers. Please use the search function under “Sources of supply” if you need help finding a dealer.

This is possible with the following ABUS locks: An ABUS door security system in combination with padlocks and door cylinders as well as all ABUS window locks.
You can order as many as you need from your specialist dealer.

Cross bars are differentiated between those for entrance doors of houses and flats (can be locked from both sides) and those for cellar or side doors (can only be locked from the inside). You will find more detailed information in the “Reinforced bolt locks” product area.

Additional door locks (case locks) are differentiated between those with or without a door limiter to protect you when opening the door from the inside. Doors with glass panes are also locked from the inside with a key. You will find more detailed information in the “Additional door locks” product area.

ABUS provides a comprehensive service for all profile cylinders. Please order the door cylinders that you require from your specialist dealer by presenting a key. Use the search function under “Sources of supply” to find your nearest dealer.

Security fittings are differentiated between those for entrance doors of houses and flats (distance 92 mm) and those for doors in corridors (distance 72 mm). You will find more detailed information in the “Security Fittings” product area.

To look after the lock and keep it turning easily, use a lock spray and lubricate the lock. We recommend our PS 88 lock spray.

Please get in touch with your local ABUS dealer. You can order a new key from him by giving the number of the key or presenting a master key.
Use the search function under “Sources of supply” to find your nearest dealer.

The ABUS combination mechanism is extremely complicated and secure. That's why your combination lock cannot be opened without knowing the programmed code – even by us.

It is absolutely imperative that you present a master key or have the key number. Regrettably, a new key cannot be made for you without this information, even by us.

These abbreviations have the following meanings:

  • B/SB: blister packaging for self-service
  • EK: single box
  • gl.: one-key-fits-all (one key for multiple products)
  • vs.: individually keyed (only the keys supplied for that product will work)

These differences lie in the products’ locking operations. If multiple products use one and the same key, it is wise to use one of these locking operations. One key with the same number will then work for all locks. There are no technical differences between the products.

White and brown are always available, but increasingly silver is also being offered in the range. Information about this can be found under each version in the product descriptions.

With DIN left, the hinges are visible on the left-hand side of the window/door; with DIN right, on the right-hand side.

ABUS uses colours similar to the following RAL colours: white: RAL 9016, brown: RAL 8014, silver: RAL 9006.

RAL colours are standardised colours, whereby a unique number has been assigned to each colour. This ensures exact reproduction of colours e.g. during painting, varnishing etc. and no variations. As such, the colour of the additional window lock or additional door lock can be matched exactly to the colour of the window frame.
