Step 3. Make sure your smartphone has a good 4G/LTE/5G/Wifi internet connection.

Step 5. Power cycle your lock by removing and reinserting one of the batteries. If the battery is low, please replace the brand new batteries.
> Receiving the Smart Notification when I unlock/lock via the U-tec App, but not getting the notification when I using the fingerprint/code/keyfob.
Ultraloq Bridge must keep connecting. For the fingerprint/code/keyfob unlock/lock, the notifications need to upload from the lock to the cloud, then be sent to your U-tec App via Ultraloq Bridge. When you are using the U-tec App to unlock/lock and Auto Unlock directly, the notification will be pushed to the cloud via App, so that's why you can only get the notification of the App lock/unlock.
If you don't have the Bridge, please order the Ultraloq Bridge and pair the Bridge to your lock.
If you have paired Bridge to your lock, please refer to this article to check the Bridge's connection.
If multiple users logged in to the same account simultaneously on different smartphones, the Notification will push to the most recent logged-in smartphones.
