Setting Up Ultraloq Bridge

Requirements:

  1. A smartphone that is connecting to the 2.4GHz WiFi network (5GHz WiFi is NOT supported). The length of your WiFi password should be less than 32 characters;

    Please make sure that both your smartphone and the Bridge use the same 2.4GHz WiFi network (WiFi name). In that case, the WiFi name will display automatically.

    If you are using iPhone, please don't choose the network with the suffix like 5Ghz.

  2. U-tec App (latest version);
  3. Ultraloq Smart lock: U-Bolt, U-bot Pro, Lever, UL1, UL300, UL3-BT(2nd Gen), UL3-BT (support but not recommend);
  4. Ultraloq Bridge plugged into a power outlet within 10 feet on an opposite or adjacent wall from your Ultraloq Smart Lock interior assembly. The lock and the Bridge are in the line of sight (recommended);
  5. A distance within 50 feet between the Bridge and the WiFi router;
  6. One Ultraloq Smart Lock can only connect with one mobile at the same time.

Notes:

If you are using the dual-band router, which combined 2.4GHz and 5GHz into one SSID(WiFi Name), that means the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signals are displaying as one. The connection will default to 5 GHz unless it is weaker than the 2.4 GHz one. The process for it is explained in our article:
