Choosing your Own Access Code
Don’t tell anyone your code.
An access code is a series of entries on the keypad. WARNING: This is not a numeric keypad, you cannot program digits (there is no 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10).
An “entry” is a single press of one or more buttons at the same time.
You can use a minimum of three entries, or a maximum of six entries, for your access code.
For each entry of the access code, you may choose one, more than one or ALL of the buttons on the keypad in combination.
Be careful in choosing your access code. You’ll want to be sure that you can operate the unit quickly without making an entry error.
Example of a valid access code; Press button one, press button two, press all four buttons together. Choose an access code which is easy to use, but try to make it an access code which is difficult to guess. Your current address or phone number digits are not good choices, because the keypad only has four buttons.
Avoid programming in bright light; it might prevent you from seeing the red/green LED. Look directly down upon the keypad. Do not attempt to press the buttons with the safe resting upon a soft surface, such as a bed, a pillow, or a deep pile carpet.
Programming Your Access Code
Note: There is a soft “beep” sound and a brief light with each keypad entry. Enter the factory-default code, from left to right: one, two, three, four. The door will open. Leave the door open.
Find the Learn Button
Press and hold the Learn Button for two seconds. (see below) GunVault reset button
You should see the green light and hear the beep – release the Learn button – the unit is now in “learn” mode.
Enter your new code. The light will remain green. Press and hold the Lean button again for two seconds. The light will turn red, and you will hear a beep. Release the Learn Button.
While the light is red, enter your new code a second time to confirm it. Press and hold the Learn Button a third time for two seconds. Release the Learn button. The light will blink green five times. And you will hear five beeps, confirming that the new code has been accepted. If the red light blinks 5 times with 5 beeps at this point, and error has occurred. Just start over by depressing the Learn Button for two seconds.
